Discordia: Hail the Goddess of Chaos and Confusion

Portada
Ronin Publishing, 2006 M04 5 - 192 páginas
What's the right faith for those who clamor for spirituality, but strain at the confines of organized religion? Discordia — described as a religion disguised as a joke disguised as a religion — may be the answer. Starting from the "firm belief that it is a mistake to hold firm beliefs," Discordia lays out a tongue-in-cheek plan for worshipping Eris, the Greek goddess of discord. Loads of laughter and paradox are key to keeping the faith, as well as counter-evangelism, surrealist pranking, and the presentation of absurd rewards to distinguished individuals. Packaged in a trendy new edition, Discordia brings an underground classic that has sowed chaos for 50 years to a new generation of neo-pagans.

Acerca del autor (2006)

Discordianism was founded in 1959 - or maybe it was 1958 - by Greg Hill, a character in the Illuminatus Trilogy, who is also called "Malaclypse The Younger" or "Mal-2", or occasionally "The Omnibenevolent Polyfather of Virginity in Gold" or "OPOVIG", and Kerry Thornley, who is also called "Lord Omar KhayyamRavenhurst". The foundational document of Discordianism is Hill's Principia Discordia (previous title), although this book contains many references to an earlier source, The Honest Book of Truth, which was taken by a garbage collector, according to a quotation from The Honest Book of Truth, cited on page 00030 of the Principia.

During the early years of the circulation of the Principia Discordia, rumor claimed the author of the book was Richard Nixon, Timothy Leary, and Robert Anton Wilson, or that the book and Malaclypse the Younger were fictional inventions of Wilson à la H.P. Lovecraft's Necronomicon.
