I have been doing a lot of reading today within this particular path. Though I do not consider myself aligned with any path, the following, which I guess could be considered the basics of my own beliefs seemed to fit no where. And well, if discordians cannot allow such a complete non-sequitor, than who could?



Every individual human being has the right to believe whatever the hug they wish to believe. Yes, even if I feel that they are deluded. Even if I think they have been brainwashed by the “establishment.” Even if think they are just plain ignorant, uninformed, evil or as naïve as a Care Bear.

Every opinion, while the holder has the perfect and inalienable right to hold it, is NOT equally valid. When I state that every human has the right to believe what they wish to believe, this does NOT mean that I have to respect or appreciate every belief.

We are NOT all “one.” We do have major differences due to nature and nurture. Being human does not mean being the same as every other human. Again, this does not mean that humans should not have equal rights. This means that we are individuals (though some choose to align with others in a set of beliefs/actions, etc); and we each have individual responsibilities, faults and strengths. Simply being “human” does not grant one the right to another human’s respect or admiration or love. It is a person’s actions which defines that person.

If someone wants to kill or destroy me, I have the right to defend myself by whatever means necessary.

There are a whole hell of a lot of people running around thinking they have all the answers to existence, and the “right” way to think or act or exist (be). No person or group instills more fear in my very soul than the one(s) that believes they know “the only truth.” The ones that assign everyone a pat set of motivations and grants no room for individual thought, perception and action.

Evolution (change) is a natural occurrence and should be celebrated instead of avoided, derided and feared. This includes changes in society as a whole, religion/spirituality, politics/governance…well, everything. There are more things on heaven and earth…and all that.

Deities or a higher source/power(s) may very well exist. This higherpowersource may very well be the most removed and unconcerned about each individual human or may literally sit and watch us from birth and track our doings and sins and rite and hiccups…does it really matter in our everyday lives which is true?

When we die: we either become worm dirt or we don’t and there is some sort of other life/plane, etc. Again, does it really matter which is true? If we become worm dirt, we won’t know at all; and if the other is true, well yippee?

We all (well, maybe “most is a better word) want to be happy, but only some of us choose to be.

My life, my choices, my existence are all my responsibility. No one, no anything OWES me anything, and I owe no one or anything.

DO NOT DIS THE CARE BARES!!! They are the ultimate power in the multiverse! It was they who defeated the ancient ones, beware lest they hear thine blasphemy lest they release the mighty bunny. If that dost happen the whole of earth shall be laid to waste, or devoured if bunny is still hungary after feasting on thine soul.

Other than that, I can live with your brain/religion/idea thing.

I have never quite understood the concept of dualism...is it one of black vs white or one of blackmeldingintowhite or one of black=white?

so one thing that I am curious about with my 10...which are by no means my entire belief system... and I am too lazy to really do any research on the matter, so I ask y'all, does this make me more of a discordian or a satanist. Not that I really care about the label but good lord it is sort of humiliating when I get called one or the other...having no idea which is should be more offended by LOL

i have Faith... in hands reaching out for each other
when the smoke has cleared among the ruins
where eyes have been blind folded
where ears have been shellshocked
where tongues have been cut out
where all senses have been
violated
In spite of it all...

To be honest, there are more than a couple of similarities between some aspects of Discordianism and some Satanism. The individualism is very much an aspect of both, any one Discordian is not required to believe what another believes, is not in fact required to believe anything. Also, anyone can have an imaginary position of authority in Discordianism, but thats all it is. Spiritual anarchism means that a priest caste system is not accepted.

Thats a rough overview, I'll look into the 10 in more detail later.
