If you think you are a Discordian, then probably you are not a Discordian.

I would argue that you can be a Discordian inasmuch as someone can be a Christian, but you cannot be a Discordian in the same way that you could be Catholic. A Discordian1 would be a person who believes in some or all of the Discordian belief set and lives by it to some extent, whereas a Discordian2 would be a member of a practicing body with structure and whatnot. Any group of Discordians1 could attempt to create an organization of Discordians2, but by its nature it would not be something that included all Discordians1 and therefore could not be a definitive answer to who is and who is not Discordian, and so they'd end up being something else altogether: Discordianchurch of the hyperbolic metaphor or something.

Instead of coming up with a thoughtful reply to this thread, I'm going to spend an hour watching TV.  Then I'm going to go to bed, because I wouldn't want to be late for work tomorrow.

Is not discordian  :sad:

I think you're mistaking us for that other lot of Discordians, the real ones. We're not the real Discordians.

I think that everyone is a Discordian in some sense (via POEE if nothing else). However, every cabal may have a completely different concept of what being a Discordian is for them. Some cabals are full of clowns, some are full of philosophers, some are full of scientists... all of them are full of Shit.

Maybe thats it... you're not a Discordian (for some definitions of the word), if you don't realize that you're full of shit.

The following is a list the top 5 things that make me "less" "discordian":

I miss the punchline, frequently.

I'm awesome at being sarcastic, but have difficulty picking it up in someone else.

In the deepest recesses of my heart, I do believe there is a "point" to it all (not the same, mind you, as "everything happens for a reason")

I call myself a discordian, sometimes.

I, due to habituation, have an easier time doing my mindless, boring job than I do pursuing things I actually enjoy.

Ya' stupid Yank.

Listening to Discordians explaining how to be Discordian makes me not Discordian. In order to be Discordian, you must Discard what Discordians say, and become a Discardian instead. And being a Guardian of Dis?  Dat is good groundwork for Discordians.

What makes you not a Discordian?
  • When you take things too seriously
  • When you try to convince yourself you don't really care about what you really do
  • When you allow a rigid self-concept to interfere with spontaneously being yourself

Or maybe "When you act like someone else to please other people".
