The illusion is shattered if we ask what goes on behind the scenes.

Yes and no. I would agree that Discordia's a joke (and the joke's on us), but it's not like the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

I don't know; I haven't seen it.

Those type of Discordians are usually known as "Myspace Discordians" or Pinealists"; they're good for regurgitating old Principia quotes and unfunny memes but not much else.

Pastafarianism isn't a joke. What's wrong with you?

What is Discordianism?
This is actually a toughie. I'll answer as best I can:

-If there is such a thing as Supreme and Ultimate Truth, there's probably no chance of humans comprehending or understanding it within their lifetimes. So sit back and enjoy life, while you still have it. Stop chasing the Meaning of the Universe and start making your own meanings.
-The potential of human beings is restrained by their biological limits, and by their personal beliefs and ideologies. You can't do anything about your biological limits, but you can change and modify your beliefs/views.
-There are no ultimate rules set in stone. People can choose to accept the rules of others, or they can make their own.
-The only authority other people have over you is that which you choose to give them.
-At the most basic level, human beings are monkeys, and will behave as such.
-You can reduce your own monkey-ness by constantly re-evaluating your belief systems and worldviews in an objective and rational manner.
-When dogma enters the human mind, all original thought ceases.

-Think For Yourself, Shmuck



It's evolved a fair bit from its original inception. In the beginning it was an absurdist/Zen type of thing, whereas recently it's gone more into personal introspection/self-improvement and social commentary.

Bullshit, he knows everything there is to know about his own religion because everybody's religion is different. To say that he knows diddly-squat about Christianity is the 'no true Scotsman' fallacy played backwards because it implies that there is some perfect and unalterable ideal of Christianity.

Probably, but that is an easy mistake to make when you're going to call someone on his bullshit. I just didn't add anything because I didn't think that there was anything to add.

Not that I'm disagreeing with you but,

How do you know the probability of humans being able to comprehend something like this?
