“Pain in the ASCII”

Thank you for that thoughtful dissection of my statement, Wicked. I have taken it into account, but I figure that one rule pretty much sums up the entirety of the Rede, or at least the “important” parts. I have never, nor will I ever, blindly follow a rule. I question everything, some things more than others. Hell, at times I have knowingly and willingly gone out of my way to harm something. Why? because it is our nature. All of life is a duality. male and female, chaos and order, life and death, constructive and destructive. for everything around us, there is an opposite that completes it, and we cannot live our individual lives properly by embracing only half of what is around us and shunning the other half. Good and evil are concepts forged of a flawed, limited, and skewed perception of reality, and should have as little hold on our lives as possible.

the differences:

Discordianism – taoism for people who enjoy excessive non sequitor absurdist humor, but also deep philosophy

Pastafarianism – absurdist “Religion” for skeptic atheists who like to mock people of faith

also why are we talking about wicca here?

Because while I am Discordian, I also hold to the Wiccan faith.

I came across the Principia Discordia before the Illuminatus! trilogy and was thoroughly entertained.

I still don’t know how I read through the entire Illuminatus! trilogy sober. It’s excruciating.

Most Pastafarians I know are just a little too militant. I wouldn’t call Discordianism “deep” though.

Besides, in my experience “deep” is just a code word for “something I really don’t think about”.

i already am a discordian. as is every man, woman, and child on earth. many of them just aren’t aware of it. (i also added the wiki page about the LDD)

if you read and absorbed the knowledge that is contained within the hallowed pages of the Principia, you would know that already.

right….just like when those 3 roman catholic popes all excommunicated each other and claimed they were the one true head of the roman catholic church. you can excommunicate all you want, but unlike in catholicism, any other discordian can excommunicate you right back so it really means jack squat.

I am a great fan of Pope Robert Anton Wilson (RIP) and all his fiction and non-fiction work, but I usually hate to admit it because people treat it as too much of a joke, like it is on the same level as an internet meme. Of course the same thing has been true of the Church of the SubGenius for a long time as well. The philosophical points made by both tend to get ignored in favor of the “funny” or “rebellious” aspects.

If it is still in the Hour of Slack archives, look for the show where Stang and RAW just talked for the whole hour, I believe it was originally broadcast in the late 80s or early 90s.

And also, I prefer the Historical Illuminatus! books to the original Illuminatus! trilogy. The Widow’s Son is probably the best thing RAW ever wrote.

i always liked that Mal2, OKM, and RAW’s contributions were a mix of both philosophy and ridiculousness. i’ll look for that show when i get home. what are the Historical Illuminatus! books? i have both the Illuminatus! and Schrodinger’s Cat trilogies in omnibus form, but you’ve got me curious about those.
