I'm looking for a particular passage of Discordian wisdomry
« on: August 12, 2004, 10:03:36 pm »
Hi all, I was sure that I had originally read this in the Principia, but damned if I can't find it.  I'm looking for a short passage that I believe involves a Discordian Saint or some other creature, listing 5 rules or warnings about organized religion.  I think I can paraphrase one or two: Beware any system that is of more value to the master than the student; and something about religions creating taboos out of any pleasure they cannot replace.

Does this ring any bells for anyone?  Where could I find this again?

Yours in confusion,

Yaldabaoth

Actually I became fascinated with that dot for some reason... I started showing it to a lot of different people... I realized that the levels of paranoia run deep in some people... it's a weird dot.

An old band of mine did the "dot" bit on one of our albums' J-cards, but we got the bright idea of actually dosing a few.  We figured that it would assume the form of the "international cocaine dealer" trucks, and Authority wouldn't take it seriously.

After all, if people thought the music sucked, they could still have the chance of getting off, right?

the only 5 rules I know of in the book is the pentabarf.

I - There is no Goddess but Goddess and She is Your Goddess. There is no Erisian Movement but The Erisian Movement and it is The Erisian Movement. And every Golden Apple Corps is the beloved home of a Golden Worm.

II - A Discordian Shall Always use the Official Discordian Document Numbering System.

III - A Discordian is Required during his early Illumination to Go Off Alone & Partake Joyously of a Hot Dog on a Friday; this Devotive Ceremony to Remonstrate against the popular Paganisms of the Day: of Catholic Christendom (no meat on Friday), of Judaism (no meat of Pork), of Hindic Peoples (no meat of Beef), of Buddhists (no meat of animal), and of Discordians (no Hot Dog Buns).

IV - A Discordian shall Partake of No Hot Dog Buns, for Such was the Solace of Our Goddess when She was Confronted with The Original Snub.

V - A Discordian is Prohibited of Believing what he reads.

The dot thing... lick here... you may be one of the lucky 25 that doesn't die.
