I don't really see biology as something "outside of technology" It is technology. It's self replicating nano-machines. I think most people don't think of it as tech cos we never invented it. That'll probably change once we optimise it and start really programming new shit with it.

I'm imagining an app which generates a random string of letters every day, which is your deity for the next 24 hours, and two measures of time, the first being how often you need to pray to your deity and the second being for how long.

So the first day you might have to pray to sdfgkjfgh once ever hour, for 5 minutes. The second day maybe you pray to auebfhfy once every 5 minutes for 2 and a half minutes.

Prayer consists mainly of attempting to pronounce the name of your lord and saviour, out loud.

If any employer or educational establish doesn't allow this, they're trampling my freedom of religion  :argh!:

I knew I was going to regret asking that :argh!:

Somehow the entire validity of this entertainment project hinges on the disclaimer at the start of the movie. If it says "Based on a true story" I'm going to physically kill a motherfucker. To death  :evilmad:

There's an interesting (read - imaginary) distinction that religions, especially the large corporate outfits, like to make between "proper" religions and cults. A cult being a mainstream religion with significantly decreased market share.

If the secular establishment can make a concerted effort to erode the validity of this distinction, the outcome should be to afford an equal level of legitimacy to any form of delusion, regardless of how many fucking likes they have on facebook. :argh!:

Anything less is not freedom of religion.

I wouldn't trust any of them, but if you read two or more of them you see the inconsistencies in the stories or the details that the others leave out.

Good general rule - not just Ireland

When I was in high school the religion-in-schools debate du jour was about whether or not its legal to hang the 10 commandments on the wall. I was in favor of it. Because as soon as that's legal and protected by law, they have to protect the Pentabarf and the Satanic Commandments.

Except that you and I know it doesn't actually work that way.

When a religious person asks for "freedom of religion" what they actually want is a theocracy  :argh!:


This past week marked the 46th anniversary of the My Lai massacre, in which 504 unarmed Vietnamese civilians were massacred by U.S. troops in 1968. It's one of the most shameful chapters in American military history, and now documents held at the Nixon Presidential Library paint a disturbing picture of what happened inside the Nixon administration after news of the massacre broke.

The documents, mostly hand-written notes from Nixon's meetings with his chief of staff H.R. "Bob" Haldeman, lead some historians to conclude that President Richard Nixon was behind the attempt to sabotage the My Lai trials and cover up what was becoming a public-relations disaster for his administration.

One document, scribbled by Haldeman during his Dec. 1, 1969, meeting with Nixon, reads like a threatening to-do list under the headline "Task force - My Lai." Haldeman wrote "dirty tricks" (with the clarification that those tricks be "not too high a level") and "discredit one witness," in order to "keep working on the problem."


Think for Yourself, Schmuck! / Re: Discipline
« on: March 27, 2014, 03:05:18 pm »
Self discipline is the only form of discipline I personally am able to comply with. Any external order will be processed as a suggestion. My complicity will be depend upon my immediate strategy and goals. Maybe I obey. Maybe I fool the authority into thinking I've obeyed. Maybe I raise a middle finger or a fist. Depends on the situation but what I'm not conditioned to do is just obey because it's an order. I somehow managed to dodge that particular indoctrination. I'm often appalled by the behaviour of the ones who didn't but not always - it's a backdoor mind hack after all - sometimes it can be exploited for profit and/or lulz 

As far as I'm aware, I'm the only serious occupational hazard at my workplace

It depends on how sincere you are.

Obvious, but needed to be said.

Also, do you really want to do a ritual designed to get the Goddess of Strife to notice you?
If i weren't sincere about doing a discordian ritual, i would make up some ridiculous nonsense in order to take the piss out of them.
 If I were sincere about doing a discordian ritual, i would make up some ridiculous nonsense in order to -WHOOPS I'VE GONE CROSSEYED

I'd be thinking of ways to sik the law of fives on 'em

If you want to approach arguing, from a win/lose perspective, then it makes more sense to me to turn the traditional paradigm on it's head.

We're arguing, you convince me I'm wrong - I win (I've just received a software upgrade)

I convince you that you're wrong - You win

Unfortunately, it rarely works out that way on account of primate ego/threat response :kingmeh:
I hadn't considered that losing was an option in an argument. And i also hadn't considered the ego/threat response.
Consider that considered and nwo i consider your reversed perspective superior.

HAHA! I WIN!  :lulz:
