MysticWicks endorsement: "At least Satanists HAVE a worldview. After reading this thread, I'm convinced that discordians not only don't, but will actively mock anyone who does."
I think the offer of free drugs will make us very popular.Unfortunately.
Just go into the member list, and compile the first posts from each member.That would be fucking awful.
Sorry, newbie post yadda yadda but I read the book an I am now confused (in a good way, I think). Is that a good start? Also is Malaclypse in any way related to the Malaclypse character (conspriacy theorist-priest supremo) on the Discworld Noir PC game?

Good day all,I am the Reverend What's-His-Name? of the Maine Platypus Kabal here in Southern Maine. Currently it consists of myself and one other nameless person. We will be picking it soon.I've enjoyed 29 revolutions around the Mother thusfar. I am employed in the profession of retail which is desperately in need of an enlightenment. At least the sector I belong to.I am unioned with a startlingly stunning member of the female persuasion and together have begat a future discordian, also of the persuasive gender. I'm glad to have stumbled upon a meeting ground of other discordians here in the digital realm. I'm sure I shall enjoy my time here and look forward to swamping, I mean swapping conversations with many of you. Thank you. Hail Eris! and 5 tons of flax.
Hi,Just read the Principia Discordia, being a roleplayer and having an open mind (an essential pre-requisite really) I have been interested in alternative religions/belief systems more leaning towards the themes of Chaos and Paganism. I think I've found something I can relate to in the Principia. I decided to google about and see what people were saying about it, I just knew there'd be a forum out there and am delighted to find one, even better that it's populated by a bunch of roleplayers. I've been roleplaying on and off for about 13 years. The RPG group I was with got too big and I was falling asleep waiting on my turn so I left for a couple of years(!). I am about to rejoin the same group, which has shrunk a bit since we parted ways and am looking forward to it immensly. Strangely, most of the people in the group have turned to Wicca/Chaos Madgick, or a branch of Paganism from their born into religions/belief sets. I am the only Discordian in the group. Mostly my characters are preists and clerics, so it looks like I will be adapting Discordianism into D&D, etc, possibly even the Red Dwarf RPG.
....against Kabbalah Lite (tm)!!!!!! Papal Decree by Pope Throatwobbler Mangrove xvii Madonna & her red string wearing cronies, spouting their useless kabbalah-lite (tm) must be neutralized.

Hi all. I stumbled on this madness trying to find a decent PD link, lurked for a bit, then (against my better and worse judgement) thought I'd wander up to the discussion trough.Just to get some background of mine out of the way (so we can all get our preconceptions in-line):I was raised Unitarian Universalist, then ran across a copy of RAW's Schroedinger's Cat Trilogy when I was 17 (still one of my all-time favorites, and the best description of the parallel universe model I've managed to find) which led to, naturally, the Illuminatus! Trilogy and PD, as well as a bunch of other weird and wild stuff. I'm an agnostic, but since it's nice to have someone to blaspheme at, Eris fits the bill nicely.I'm a musician (professionally trained at Berklee in Boston where I still live, for what very, very little that's worth) and I also kill time in an office at one of the larger "learning institutions" here in Beantown. I used to think I wanted to be a professional musician, but then I actually dealt with the industry, and you couldn't make me deal with those assholes if you paid me enough to afford my own country - one of the bigger ones with a decent military, not some tiny-assed island.Now I just spend my time doing whatever seems kind of cool at the moment. Mostly that's reading, noodling on the bass (my instrument of choice) or playing video games while ruminating on matters both mundane and esoteric, unless I don't feel like it just then.Anyway, just thought I'd throw some basics about me, so when you ask yourself "Hey. Who's that one guy?" you've got this to help.Oh, and the requisite 23, fnord, etc. to just get it out of the way

This is my first rant, and first post here, so tell me what you think. Look at the world around you, and can you say the normal, é─˙saneé─¨ individual truly lives a fulfilled life? What has happened to these individuals stripped of their identity? They are a product of a world without spirituality! Not that any of this is to say bullshit claiming to be the word of some great patriarch pimp in the sky is spirituality, but the soul, the primal drive for some sort of untamed, unmolded, uninhibited growth, needs to be reclaimed by man. Over the millennia we have learned religion and organization offers no solace; indeed they have only told us to destroy ourselves in anticipation of an unnamed reward. But from where can we retain this sort of raw spiritual energy man seeks for fulfillment? Certainly Discordianism has offered the laughing disorder that frees us from withering away in an organized, restrictive world, but it is not enough! In this I offer the next step, cultural devolution, moving to a time when the world was still untamed by us or our order, past the beginnings of a Theocratic society to those of a Theacratic society of spiritual leaders guiding others to fufillment! What I mean is a return to the original way, the way of shamanism! Not the bullshit spouted by New Ager sellouts of é─˙getting in touch with your totem animalé─¨ and such marketing schemes, but the techniques of spiritual ecstasy through music, dance, communal ritual, and substance use that marked the tribal worlds of early society! For a while we tried meditation, the Buddhist attempts at é─˙quieting the mindé─¨ to let in spirituality, but our generation will never truly be affected by settling down, sitting still, and forcing away our disquieting thoughts. We have gone far into what can be clich?ęd as the Information Age, where our youth must process huge amounts of knowledge to simply survive. We can see around us a desperate attempt at a return to life! Even those who are still sitting on their couches are filled with discontent at the system which restricts them so, though their frustration is being tapped by whatever power hungry organization (i.e. the Religious Right, the Democratic Party, almost any corporation). Meditation is nothing but the same extinguishing of life for entrance of a new one that religion is, and will never keep hold with our society. But how should we cause this return to shamanism in our society completely changed from the days of shamanism? Easy friends, we must embrace (and bear with me here) the rave movement. I know what many of you will say to yourself, é─˙those ravers are just a bunch of dumb teens on Ecstasy looking for a new scene to attach toé─¨. But thaté─˘s not the case. Raves are like any other concert, and may be even cleaner. But the specific reason for the rave is that it is absolutely a shamanistic ritual in its entirety. Pulsing music drives the ravers in the same way the shamans of old were moved by the music of the tribe; the ravers dance out of a genuine spiritual ecstasy; they immerse themselves into an environment full of heat, motion, and powerful bass drums rattling through their body to create an energy that fills them entirely; and partake inso many other shamanistic action all leading to a mass spiritual cleansing and rebirth. And from this comes secretaries, deliverymen, and others who still hate their jobs and surroundings like everyone else, but have something to live for and know that some great spiritual need has been filled within them. Shamanism can be reborn, it is already being reborn, and it can be given unto a world that cries out for it.
I would suggest a morality talk."You know every time you get someone to sign up for that credit card you are putting good, middle class citizens further into debt, and lining the pockets of the wealthy elite."If you get the person to apologize for all the ills of the common man, you WIN!In the event of a tie the person that used the least socialist rhetoric wins.
Hi all I'm Ross. I thought operation mindfuck was fun when I did it to myself but the idea of doing it to others, especially the herd, strikes me as hilarious. I've been reading some of the posts on this forum and have been almost pissing myself laughing. I think I'm in the right place. If it turns out I'm wrong in this assumption then I guess I'll just fuck with your minds a bit until I get banned. Happy thursday!
That was truly an amazing journey.I vote Chaplin_Sinatra_Fonzarell for Nobel Peace Prize.I want a sequel.
