What is the Principia's "John 3:16"?
« on: November 04, 2014, 11:12:07 am »
I'm looking for one page or one quote from the Principia that sums up Discordianism, like John 3:16 for Christianity. "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life" sums up Christianity in a nutshell. Do we have any quotes like that?  :?

Nothing is true, everything is permitted

A conclusion is simply where you stopped thinking.

Im guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk, Charles Wick said. It was very complicated.

"Think for yourself, schmuck".

This without exception
You can't get out backward.  You have to go forward to go back.. better press on! - Willie Wonka, PBUH

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

Or as is amply demonstrated in this thread, "Ask 5 Discordians a question and get 7 different answers."

It is an unfortunate fact that every man who seeks to disseminate knowledge must contend not only against ignorance itself, but against false instruction as well. No sooner do we deem ourselves free from a particularly gross superstition, than we are confronted by some enemy to learning who would plunge us back into the darkness -H.P.Lovecraft

He who fights with monsters must take care lest he thereby become a monster -Nietzsche

Faust's lines are for the people looking for a quick, general understanding. However, to fully understand Discordianism, a few moments of intense analysis of Doktor Howl's lines may enlighten you. In-fact, you can understand Discordianism with Faust's lines. But you can demonstrate it for others by repeating Doktor Howl's lines to yourself, over and over again.  :lulz:

To become a Discordian leader, repeat Doktor Howl's lines while trying to lick your elbow.  :lulz:

And then there's this: 

"Wipe thine ass with what is written
and grin like a ninny at what is Spoken. Take
thine refuge with thine wine in the Nothing
behind Everything, as you hurry along the Path."
