Ask 20 Discordians a question, receive 20 answers.

Or none.

Or something in between.

The way I see it there usually isn't an apocalypse, just the cycle of the five seasons. I forget the details but it starts with chaos, goes through discord and confusion, then through bureaucracy, then through the aftermath and back to chaos again. The harder you look the more you will find this cycle. Every day you go through this cycle, every day of the week is one season of the cycle, every season of the (discordian) year is a season of the cycle, and in the really big picture everything that happens in the world can be explained in analogy to the cycle. So what people call Apocalypse is really just the transition from Aftermath back to Chaos. Maybe.
Unless stated otherwise, feel free to copy or reproduce any text I post anywhere and any way you like. I will never throw a hissy-fit over it, promise.

The Apocalypse is like Utopia: It would kick lots of ass but the fuckups in Washington will never let it happen.

Don't ask questions.  This is a cult, you hear?  We are creepy and secretive.  We operate outside rational conventions.

When J.R. "Bob" Dobbs's pipe begins to smoke, the Apocalypse is happening.

Boy, do I have egg on my face! Or, on my mind, I guess.

I always read that as "abocalypse" and assumed that when the natives of Australia began singing "Day-o, Daaaay-o, Daylight comin' and me got to go home" then Israel would finally reach orgasm.

So it has nothing to do with the Abos? Or calypso music?

Damn.

I know nothing about discordianism, actually. I just came to this site because I was lured in by a promise of porn:

Euclid alone has looked on Eris bare:
She curves in here, she softens and
She curves voluptuously out there.

So I Googled "Eris" and here I am. (Imagine my surprise. When I find whoever posted that teaser I am going to give him such a verbal spanking.)

Maybe when Discord has triumphed over the Carp of the Quotidian, then mountains shall tremble and giggle, the seas shall cast forth a chocolate bundt cake, and the Beast with Five Hundred and Fifty-Five Eyes shall finally see the optometrist and get his nearsightedness corrected.

But the chao is without end, so there are probably apocalypti within apocalypti, like octopi within octopi without end. Imagine the squirming!

It's going to be messy, folks.

I can't remember who said it, but it goes along the lines that the world already ended, it's just nobody has noticed.

Apocalypse begins one day after the Anti-President (or Prezitator) takes control.
