Principia Discordia
Sooo... I didn't know exactly where to post it. I don't know if Religion is the proper thread, but after all, it IS a sort of... parody religion.
How many of you do know about Discordianism? I've seen kahoku mention it a few times <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->
I find it rather amusing.
I'll just leave the Wikipedia entry here for those who doesn't know about it... ---> <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Discordianism">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Discordianism</a><!-- m -->

And an excerpt from the beginning of Principia Discordia, which you can read here --> <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.principiadiscordia.com/">http://www.principiadiscordia.com/</a><!-- m -->

Whenever I feel bored and depressed, reading the Principia Discordia will cheer me up. It provides such a humorous and free view of everything. Then I feel free and joyful =D It's nice to remember some things once in a while...

Some excerpts from an Interview with Malaclypse the Younger by THE GREATER METROPOLITAN YORBA LINDA HERALD-NEWS-SUN-TRIBUNE-JOURNAL-DISPATCH-POST AND SAN FRANCISCO DISCORDIAN SOCIETY CABAL BULLETIN AND INTERGALACTIC REPORT & POPE POOP
=================================

GREATER POOP: Are you really serious or what?
MAL-2: Sometimes I take humor seriously. Sometimes I take seriousness humorously. Either way it is irrelevant.

GP: Maybe you are just crazy.
M2: Indeed! But do not reject these teaching as false because I am crazy. The reason that I am crazy is because they are true.

GP: Is Eris true?
M2: Everything is true.
GP: Even false things?
M2: Even false things are true.
GP: How can that be?
M2: I don't know man, I didn't do it.

GP: Why do you deal with so many negatives?
M2: To dissolve them.
GP: Will you develop that point?
M2: No.

GP: Is there an essential meaning behind POEE?
M2: There is a Zen Story about a student who asked a Master to explain the meaning of Buddhism. The Master's reply was "Three pounds of flax."
GP: Is that the answer to my question?
M2: No, of course not. That is just illustrative. The answer to your question is FIVE TONS OF FLAX!

Re: Principia Discordia
I will have to take the unprecedented move and agree with you Freetha. The Principa Dischordia, like all religious texts, except for those written by Terry Pratchett, is boring as all hell.

Re: Principia Discordia
Haha, Discordianism seems to be so colorful and... non-boring.
But I never liked discordianists much. Same thing with chaos magic. I like the concept. I don't like most chaoists.

Re: Principia Discordia
Even chaos can be taken too seriously. I mean if you're just doing it to tick off your parents, then that has a reason behind it and thusly it becomes false.

If you're doing it to tick off God, it ceases to be funny.

If you're doing it to make God laugh, then that's a good reason, because God cannot laugh unless you laugh first. He's just a big copycat anyway.

Actually, depending on certain views, ticking off God is very funny indeed. It's even better when you tick him off on accident, though, because then you're innocent of any crime and it's like "whoops, did I do that?"

And, yes, I find a religion [which is, essentially, an orderly demonstration of a belief] based on chaos [which is, in itself, disorderly] to be rather "dull", to be polite. I never really had much love for religion as a whole, anyway, so... it's a moot point.

Re: Principia Discordia
i think the principia discordia is fun to read. there are some statements in there that just crack me up. <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->
to me, it's not a religion, but if anyone wants to make it their religion, i have no problem with that. *shrug*

Re: Principia Discordia
This is a religion? What's there to believe about it, anyways? Where do people plug in their faith? This just seems like a sock full of randomized quarter-monkeys. While the resulting pudding farts can be amusing, it's hardly something to make into a religion.

Any time I hear someone promoting it, it doesn't so much seem to be colourful and non-boring as . . . someone trying really self-consciously to be colourful and non-boring. The outcome of that doesn't really hold my attention.

We discarded the possibility because it seemed like too much work. We're not spontaneous enough. *g*
