Cohesive?

If you try reading it as if only one person is talking, it's like looking into the mind of a schizophrenic.

If you want copies of mine without the University of Dayton approval stamps on them, I can provide that.

I'd like that. Being at a college which is decidedly NOT the Uni of Dayton makes it awkward.

Mittens for LMNO! Somehow all compiled together like that, our answers seem brilliantly cohesive.

Yeah, it's something I wouldn't mind seeing in a Discordian publication.

lol, so if I make it a philosophy where you cause rampant disorder, that's discordia?

yeah that's Discordia, in a sense. It's hard to argue that that's not Discordia.
Personally, I don't think it's useful to split hairs over what is and what isn't Discordian. It's just an idea, and we're more than just agents of it.

Plus, have you ever listened to Christians argue about what is and what isn't Christian? They can't get to the bottom of anything without referring to some book or some dead guy or some pope.

You can determine for yourself what your Discordian values are. I think that's cool.

Everybody's Discordia is different,
collect all 23

lol I meant for that to be a way to explain it. lol cmon lol

That IS my explanation.

Or did you want an all-encompassing, final definition that Discordians everywhere will recognize? If that was the case, it ain't happening. A lot of time and energy has gone into exploring that question, and everyone always comes away with different ideas.

This forum is home to a particular flavor (or perhaps flavors) of Discordianism, and many of us here take great pride in mocking any Discordian (or anyone, really) who claims to know what it really means to be Discordian. Not all Discordians do that.

Ask ten Discordians what Discordians do, and you will get eleven different answers.

still confused...lol, here I'll try this, in as best as you can explain it to someone who has no idea, fill in the blank.


A Discordian is someone who fills in the blanks with whatever they darn well please.

If you guys could teach me more about discordia, that would be great. I am eager to learn, so whatever you can tell me would be nice. Can't be discordian without knowing discordia.

Sure you can! People do it all the time!

Also, take everything we "teach" you with a grain of salt. Unless it comes from The Good Reverend Roger, our spiritual advisor.

I don't think they are a troll I think they are young.

I'd have to agree. He/She/It sounds youthful. Nothing to be ashamed of, considering the age range on this forum.

Okay, I was reading the threads and want to say sorry for sounding like a troll. I am not a troll. I want to learn about discordia an make sure I don't misunderstand so you can tell by my questions I had a misunderstood idea about what Discordia was.
You guys say think for yourself and disorder and order is balanced and should be kept in balance. Do Discordians use disorder more than order to balance the Chao?

Heh, somebody came in here a little while ago and introduced themselves with a fake Christian "you're all evil"-preaching troll. Paranoia ensues. No worries.
Discordians do tend to favor using disorder to balance an abundance of order (from what I've seen). However, not everyone sees it as an issue of balance, since balance itself is a somewhat "orderly" concept. Some never do explain what the heck they're doing.

... What is the way of thinking this religion is devoted to? ...

LOL, "the Discordian way of thinking."

Is it the REALLY REAL WAY FOR REALNESS?

Okay, I understand now, i think, lol. My last big question is, how do I know if I'm Discordian or not? (very dumb question, but I ask anyways)

The fact that you are questioning at all is a good sign.  As Coleslaw said "the cabbages never even ask".

Meaning: yes, you are now one of us. There is no going back now. You took the red pill.
Or not.

I don't know if this has either been asked before or never asked before, but I'll ask anyways.

Although Discordia is a chaos-based religion. It does have a deity that it's followers hail to and other religious practices. Is it possible for a Christian to enjoy being a Discordian, but not hail to Eris(sorry if mispelled) I don't want to start any rants, debates, or arguements over christianity. I know the majority of people here are pretty random and closer-minded to the god of madness on Oblivion, Sheogorath. I am also like this though. I enjoy random chaos, confusing people and causing complete madness. It's fun, at church to make teens stop putting their backpacks in the hallway all over the floor, I fill their bags with leaves and dirt, sometimes tissues or whatever i can think of.
Anyways, back on topic. Is it possible to be dominantly christian, but still take part of Discordia? No goddess worship. If it's possible to place God instead of Eris or something. If anyone on here can help me out, that would be great.
I have asked this before in the past and got nothing useful. I hope someone can shed some light for me.

I don't feel like reading this whole thread, so I'm going to say what other people in this thread have probably already stated, only more hastily and with less eloquence.

It does have a deity that it's followers hail to and other religious practices. Is it possible for a Christian to enjoy being a Discordian, but not hail to Eris(sorry if mispelled).

Buddy, we're our own worst blasphemers. Fuck Eris, fuck Discordia, and fuck all this Chaos-Order bullshit (<--- See?)
Some of us worship Eris. I've done it once or twice for yuks. There are no real religious rites or practices, and not hailing Eris is as valid a Discordian practice as anything else. You certainly don't need our blessing to be a "Christian Discordian" or what-have-you. There is no Discordian Authority anywhere.

Is it possible to be dominantly christian, but still take part of Discordia? No goddess worship. If it's possible to place God instead of Eris or something.

I dunno, is it possible? My guess is probably, but how about you play around with the idea and see if it works for you? Tell us how it work out.


In conclusion, no one can tell you what Discordia "is all about." Hell, it's damn near impossible to pin down what the more mainstream religions are all about; people have fought wars over that sort of thing. Is Christianity about doing good works and trying to spread compassion, or is it about believing in the power of God and Jesus to redeem our sins? Ask the Catholics and Protestants and see what kind of answers you get.
However, I will tell you that Discordia's one advantage, in my mind, is that it doesn't demand that you figure out what it's "all about," unlike a lot of religions which seem to place great emphasis on believing exactly the right things. But I could be wrong about that, depending on how you see it.

As much as I love the Calvinball collection, when a friend and I put them up around campus they lasted less than 12 hours, except for the Homeland Security posters :?
