Has Dave Hunt written any analysis of this? He is quite good at finding occult influences and mapping them out. - NewCrusader

Wikiproject Religion?

I honestly don't understand how this "game" falls into religion. Would anyone be kind enough to explain it to me? Thank you, JakeM 13:26, 9 September 2008 (EDT)

I agree, and I think the same argument could be made for the "satanism" category. HelpJazz 13:50, 9 September 2008 (EDT)
I don't think that we actually "need" that WikiProject template here. In fact we could probably "remove" it. Sideways 13:52, 9 September 2008 (EDT)
Since Deborah put it there, I would think it should be up to her or another member of the wikiproject to remove it. Or "remove" it, as the case may be. HelpJazz 13:58, 9 September 2008 (EDT)
Speaking of people who make other people laugh... Aziraphale 17:19, 9 September 2008 (EDT)

It might not be Satanism, but surely we have to keep in some reference of its occult ties. --WPalmer 17:28, 9 September 2008 (EDT)

Reference, yes (though I disagree that there are any real ties); category, no. HelpJazz 17:34, 9 September 2008 (EDT)
You can disagree all you want; it doesn't make it any less true. --WPalmer 17:56, 9 September 2008 (EDT)
Nor does asserting make it more true... HelpJazz 18:03, 9 September 2008 (EDT)
There are mountains of evidence on my side and nothing but denial on yours. --WPalmer 18:29, 9 September 2008 (EDT)
Then write them; nobody's stopping you. HelpJazz 18:31, 9 September 2008 (EDT)

Wow, wait. Mountains of evidence towards what, M:tG's occultism? And no evidence against? Nice, WPalmer, I haven't wanted to post in I don't know how long. What've you got, I will happily share the equivalent evidence against. I promise, I won't leave you hanging in a wasted effort. Lay it out, I'll work with you to suss out the evidence on both sides.

With anticipation,

I'm not messing with Ed Poor's edits, but the actual name of the game is "Magic: the Gathering." "[T]he Gathering" isn't a subtitle, addendum, or anything else, it's part of the title of the game. Yes, it is often called "Magic" for short, but that doesn't change what the name of the thing is. Perhaps someone with some clout would like to change this. Or not...
