as a christian and a high school senior studying worldviews, this is pretty interesting. first off i agree with rosencratz, that the bible IS just a book, but its the words and the messages inside that christians should search for truth (among many other things) in. a lot of people get wrapped up in the physical side of the bible (and other objects like crucifixes) and idolize it, the physical book, more than they should. back on topic, i think whether WoW is a religion really depends on who is the speaker. to me its simply a means of entertainment, just like drumming or listening to music. that doesnt make it a religion for me. however there are people who do spend the majority of their time playing/thinking about it. its when they try to search for meaning and place their hope and faith in the game that it becomes much more than a pastime, it becomes a lifestyle and possibly, their religion. it may sound ridiculous using that terminology but thats what i think. if anything, the religion (or philosophy i should say) of these people is more of hedonism than actually WoWism, if you will. even those that (whether jokingly or not) say that they worship WoW, most likely are not worshiping the game, but the pleasure/satisfaction/whatever it gives them.
