The 10 Easy Steps of Boringism
    #4563525 - 08/21/05 06:53 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Some of you have probably heard about the incredible new religion, Boringism.
Finally, man has come up with something to worship that is Scientifically Approved.
After thousands of years of such dangerously false beliefs as "eternal life" and "infinite love", Boringism sets the new standard for worship today.
Never before has The Way It Is been so amazingly... Validated!   :laugh:
But before you jump on the Boringism Bandwagon, let's get a few ground-rules straight...
(Rules are Boring, so there should always be as many as possible.....) Here are 10 of the most relevant:

Rule Number 1:
Worship logic and doubt. Suspicion is your new best friend!

Rule Number 2:
If you come across someone talking about anything that can't be scientifically verified, mock them immediately and label them wrong.

Rule Number 3:
There is no such thing as "love", "spirit", or a "soul". Remove these concepts from your knowledge!

Rule Number 3:
Anything unknown or unproven shall be shunned as false, wrong, and delusional.

Rule Number 4:
Black and white is your spectrum; absolutely no grey areas!

Rule Number 6:
Imagination shall be seen as a sickness, and should be immediately treated with hard facts and cold data.

Rule Number 7:
Questions with no proven answers should be ignored.

Rule Number 8:
Arrogance will prove your supremacy over others. Use it frequently!  

Rule Number 9:
Point out the flaws in everything.

Rule Number 10:
Take everything at face value, especially this post... no reading in between the lines! :wink:

Well, it seems you've mastered this new religion.

Reminds me of a man with a chainsaw in his anus. Just needs enough gas to get it going.

What's with the bitterness?

I am sorry if you did not see that post as being full of hypocrisy.

It was sarcastic and mean spirited...as was my reply.

Adam your post was refreshing, original, and abided by the traditions of Discordianism. It seems your detractors are in need of a meaningful sexual encounter.

And I'm not talking to you, deviate...

I would like to join your religion. It sounds err.. boring. as with most religions i assume I will need to send money. to whom shall I make out the check? Also, does your religion require the wearing of pants?
