@ Dez - Yes the bible IS JUST a book, even to religious types. It's what's contained therein that is more than that, to them.@ Neofox - you miss the point i fear. Try finding a definition for a religion and then comparing it to WoW. WoW is more a cult to my mind but some people find Religion and Cults hard to differentiate.It's actually quite an interesting subject if handled sensibly. Just look at how people respond when someone says publicly that they're going to quit the game. Immediate GTFO's and "good riddance"'s, essentially "We don't want you in OUR club anyway!"'sI'd actually go so far as to say that WoW probably is complex enough a Cult that it has multiple "Sects" Hordeists, Alliancers, Class Zealots,Rollers(Dictate who should do what roll.), altists, Twinks etc. Possibly even Elitists and "Casuals"some sects might cross over and the mass of sects could probably be compared to a huge dynamic ,expanding/contracting , collection of Venn diagrams.... Should you want to look at it in such a way. I could write a paper on that easy... in fact i think collectively with these comments we pretty much already did for this guy.
