Bah. I like my internet religions interactive, not just with the believers but with the gods themselves. What has the digiverse created? Where are the golden tablets or the burning bushes? A mythology by itself is not enough, not these days. Empiricists like things testable and solid to the touch. Ancient weapons and hokey religions are no match...
This is a joke, right? Because it's just... stupid. I mean, they seem to be reasonably intelligent people - they're not writing like "OMG we beliv digimon xist!". Yet... they're taking this delusion way to far! It doesn't make any sense at all, how could someone actually believe this is real?
Ok, so even today I like digimon, and in essence of watching all those shows, I wish that Digimon do excist...but this is sadly one step out reality. As much as I hate admitting it, the show is used for consummer-ism, and is not real.
HERETICS! The Dark Digimon will return! Do you not understand, the media is hiding the existance of the Digital Word from you! Sheeple!
Ron Paul knows the truth! He was an original digidestined, and he's going to open relations with them when he becomes president, but the evil digimon that control the corporations are putting him down!
You know, scientifically speaking it might be possible to create entire worlds out of data in the future (Maybe one year, maybe one thousand years). However, self-aware programs are almost certainly going to exist inside of twenty years.
As a note, I may not be perceiving this properly because I stopped watching digimon about... eight years ago.
...They aren't real? Bu- Bu- But whose going to fight off the evils of the world now?!?! Bush? We are all doomed!!! *Runs around for awhile until a wall hits him*
*Wakes up sane* Listen, if people can believe in God, then why the hell not a wold with creatures made by a glitch in programming? I tend to believe that is more possible than any religion we have now...but I wonder what will happen when they put those 'digivices' up into the sky and nothing happens...I hope they don't riot, last thing we need are people in the streets creaming "WHERE ARE MY DIGIMON!!!" ...eek
