  1. This one was fun to make, the digital worlds Daniel and D.J have created are super interesting. We really wanted to be able to give you a sense of what it would be like to be inside these online churches. Hope you enjoy!

  2. Guy points out someone is spamming “God isn’t real”
    Neha is shocked and decides to blaspheme in response. More disrespectful than the troll ?

  3. 7:31 "in virtual reality, I think that people are more authentic"… that would be a "no". How can they be? How can you have an authentic relationship which is deep and meaningful at the level of a real friendship at a church is if you never even meet? No VR could come close to replacing real community, actually attending a funeral or wedding in person. Or helping a friend move house. It's nice to play online, and it's amusing to see, but it's not a fully authentic relationship, and it's not worth pretending that it is either.

  4. I am absolutely not a religious person, it's antithetical to a lot of my inherent values, but I still feel pretty strongly that if you're attending a religious service in a virtual environment you've pretty amazingly missed the point.

  5. Really cool video. Have never heard of this before, but I guess it makes sense. Even if i'm not religious myself it's facinating to see what people are doing with new technology.

  6. This is such a cute and adorable video, my god. I'm not religious by any means, but I gotta say I ABSOLUTELY LOVE how people can connect with each other to share their faith or whatever through Internet. It's just a wonderful thing, really.
