Apart from this wonderful site, is there a discussion forum that does not support Kopa (or any other fictional character) as a religion figure? Because this site isn't actually active and colourful on TLK discussion topics.
I'm really sick of this Kopa religion and can't find an active discussion forum wherein it's not supported. I acknowledge everyone has the right to believe in whatever they want--but when they take their believing to the extent Kopa fans have taken theirs, it becomes a misuse of that right, as they don't believe just for their own entertainment but with it affect the entire fandom and any chance for intellectual discussing.
"Officially to Disney Kopa doesn't exist in the films, but I don't believe it!"
In other words: the film makers must be lying because I don't like what I hear and see.
Humane reaction? Yes.
Have the right to believe against facts? Yes.
Any sense in arguing against facts? No.
[Intellectual argument including also facts about Kopa not being canon]
Kopa-believer: "Ugggghhh...." or "Dream killer!" or "You offend me! I'm gonna report you!" or "Its like you want Kopa to disappear from existence!"
"I don't just believe Kopa is canon. I know he is canon."
In other words: I know Kopa is canon even though the film doesn't say the cub's Kopa or even a boy, TLK's makers called the cub Fluffy and gave it no gender, SP's makers used Fluffy for Kiara's presentation in their official trailer, and no one at Disney has ever talked about Kopa, who wasn't even created by Disney but by an outsider. And that's why I'm gonna see no sense in this and that and any valid argument is useless, annoying and offensive because I believe and know better!
A fictional character in art is not on the same starter line as Christian God for example, because there are no official facts to disprove God's existence any more than there is anything to prove He does. Whereas for fictional characters there are always teh official facts. And no one's gonna feel Kopa's wrath if they believe in the official facts and instead simply keep thinking Kopa as their PERSONAL canon only and make it clear when they speak of it. No one's gonna be stoned to death if they greet intellectual arguments with respect instead of slashing out at them because they make believing that much harder.
I'm in search for another place wherein everyone can share their fan visions and opinions but they have to be kept on a reasonable level. As in a place wherein intellectual discussion and official facts do not have to silence or be backed off just because believers are bothered by them. As in a place wherein those holding religious attitude over a fictional character are required to get real, or--because people have the right to believ--at least required to stop reading posts they keep on interpreting as personal attacks instead of intellectual arguments that they truly are. Because no one is forcing them to read--it is their choice.
So that the discussions can get real, and colourful and constructive because they are not held down by religious attitude being supported.
MOST IMPORTANTLY: If believers are allowed to argue the facts with their own beliefs and fantasy world--we should be entitled to argue their beliefs and fantasy worlds with the facts. I'm in search for a place that gets that. So that the discussers would have equal rights.
I. DON'T. hate. Kopa. I only hate the lies of his canoncy which spreads confusion and headache to those who seek the truth and wish to discuss the true canon.
I don't hate Kopa. I would like to discuss him in-depthly, intellectually and basing on the facts of how he was made and where he really exists and where he doesn't, and regarding what possibilities that opens. As in, discuss him in his full potential. Which happens to mean that the religion can not be supported because it blinds the believers from anything real and truly official and makes them unwilling to even discuss it and if someone does, they're gonna be bothered.
Of course my main discussion interest is everything TLK--Kopa just happens to have become a big part of this fandom, apparently.
