Believe in anything, those who believe in nothing will. Yes, hmmm.

Jedi knights top 15,000 in Czech census

More than 15,000 Czechs follow the faith of the Star Wars movies' Jedi knights, official census data showed Thursday, while half of the country's 10.5 million people declined to list any religion.
"Many people adhered to the moral values of Jedi knights from the Star Wars saga," the Czech Statistical Office said in a statement, noting that the invented faith also had a strong following in countries such as New Zealand, Australia, Canada and Britain.

No word yet as to whether there's now an open schism among the Czechs between the Old-Line Jedi who believe in the Force as advanced in the Original Trilogy, and those buying the midi-chlorian theory of the Force from the Phantom Menace on, not to mention the acceptability of Jar-Jar Binks as a companion ("Splitters!").
