Compiled and edited by David J. Stewart | Background music in a new window Discordianism is defined as:Eris, a.k.a. Discordia; widely popular among hackers. Discordianism was popularized by Robert Shea and Robert Anton Wilson's novel Illuminatus! as a sort of self-subverting Dada-Zen for Westerners — it should on no account be taken seriously but is far more serious than most jokes. Consider, for example, the Fifth Commandment of the Pentabarf, from Principia Discordia: “A Discordian is Prohibited of Believing What he Reads.” Discordianism is usually connected with an elaborate conspiracy theory/joke involving millennia-long warfare between the anarcho-surrealist partisans of Eris and a malevolent, authoritarian secret society called the Illuminati. See Religion in Appendix B, Church of the SubGenius, and ha ha only serious. Discordianism: /dis·kor´di·an·ism/, n. The veneration of
According to WIKIPEDIA.com,
"Discordianism is a modern, Chaos-based religion founded in either 1958 or 1959. It has been described as both an elaborate joke disguised as a religion, and as a religion disguised as an elaborate joke. Some of its followers make the claim that it is "a religion disguised as a joke disguised as a religion" (or "a joke disguised as a religion disguised as a joke disguised as...", etcetera). It can be viewed as a simple rejection of reductionism and dualism, even falsifiability — not in concept different from postmodernism or certain trends in the philosophy of mathematics. It has also been described as "Zen for roundeyes," and converges with some of the more absurdist interpretations of the Rinzai school."
At first glance, the average person would think think Discordianism is a joke, but it's no joke. It's actually a witchcraft tradition. It's interesting that www.discordianism.com is saturated with links promoting Wiccan witchcraft, spells, magick, and the occult. The following "Wiccan Tradition" page at www.wicca.com states...
"The Discordian or Erisian movement is described as a 'Non- Prophet Irreligious Disorganization and has claimed 'The Erisian revelation is not a complicated put-on disguised as a new religion, but a new religion disguised as a complicated put-on. "It all started with the *'Principia Discordia, or How I Found the Goddess and What I Did to Her When I Found Her'*, a collection of articles and ideas compiled by Greg Hill (Malaclypse the Younger). The central theme is 'Chaos is every bit as important as Order' as illustrated in the story of The curse of Greyface:
*Humor is central to Discordianism, but Discordianism should not be dismissed as a joke. Profound experiences frequently accompany the practice or Erisinaism. It is a perceptual game, one which demonstrates that the absurd is just as valid as the mundane and chaos is just as valid as order. It frees the practitioner from the order games (that most have forgotten are games) to play games with order or games with chaos, or both. The effects of Discordianism upon an individual can be far reaching and amazingly liberating. [Although a great many immature individuals have played at Discordianism and thereby side stepped any chance of spiritual growth."

"Discordians believe that Chaos is as important as Order, and have a very dark sense of sarcasm/humor to prove it. Their main text is the "Principia Discordia." Though they may not seem like it, Discordians take their beliefs as seriously as any Gardnerian High Priest/ess. There are some groups that blend Discordianism with Wicca, making those particular groups a Wiccan tradition as well."
It is clear that Discordianism is a form of witchcraft. According to collegewicca.com (witchcraft)...
"The word "tradition" comes up when discussing Wicca. Basically, a tradition is the same as a Christian denomination."
What a deceit! There is NOTHING in Wicca even remotely related to a "Christian" tradition. Wicca is a false religion according to the Word of God, the Bible. 1st John 2:22 declares Wiccans as liars and Anti-Christs because they deny that Jesus is the Christ (the Saviour of the world)...
"Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ?
He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son."
Discordianism is a form of Paganism which mocks decency and order. The Word of God condemns such nonsense, "Let all things be done decently and in order" (1st Corinthians 14:40). Discordianism is a chaos promoting philosophy (religion), with many bizarre teachings and claims. An introductory course is offered at witchschool.com on Discordianism. Clearly, Discordianism is witchcraft. I didn't wrote this article to refute all the details of Discordianism; but, rather, to EXPOSE Discordianism for what it truly is, WITCHCRAFT!!! Discordianism is an inherent part of modern witchcraft.
All Witchcraft is Satanic!
