well, he was known as the 'god of wine' for so long, due to some misinterpretation..  i could transpose some of the text if you were curious about the line of reasoning he used..  but i guess that wine wasnt a part of dionysian ritual.

I have always found Nietzche quite Discordian,
God is dead, the only reality is a human reality, even the super-man is a lot closer to Discordian then anyone else, they have to be
akward and stubborn
self motivating
artistic
sexually active

sounds fine by me.

Oddly enough 1985 is very Discordian in a way. But not Winston, the party and Big Brother are the Discordian ones. They believe that the past doesn't actually exist and so any past and reality can be created. Doublethink, the skill of think two opposites at the same time and finding them uncontradictory are very Discordian. However where they and Discordianism seperates is when the party try and enforce one fictional past on everyone - but still...

Ishmael, by Daniel Quinn.

Don't let the new-age-y cover fool you.  Damn good book.
