I'm not trying to piss on any rugs here man. After all, I commend your enthusiasm with wanting to start a wiki for our ways. But I'm wondering... Is there much missing off the main Dudeism website that would go in the wiki? I just don't want anyone doing wearing themselves out re-creating stuff.

Well dude, we just don't know...

I'd like to help expand dudeism and move it forwards... I feel like there isn't really a lot of material in regards to dudeism... And what little there is, is mostly movie puns

I know we have dudes around from all walks of life who could add their 2 cents about dudeist philosophy, or great dudes in history... I know a fair bit about Jesus, but almost nothing about Buddha, Ghandi, etc... I'd like to see people add some reading material, biographies, inspirational quotes, etc... like a general reference for dudeism

Sure, some of this stuff is on wikipedia or wherever, but wikipedia is wikipedia... it's not written by dudeists, for dudeists

I dunno, that's just my opinion man

Ahhh... I think I get what you're saying. That could make for some interesting reading.

Something that I was thinking about recently is that I wouldn't appreciate the Tao Te Ching (or the Dude De Ching for that matter) anywhere near as much as I do now if I hadn't spent a lot of time reading up on Buddhist philosophy. Before all that study, the Tao Te Ching seemed like a bunch of vague new age fluff. But afterward, the Tao Te Ching makes a lot more sense, and it feels like a broad sweeping big picture of it all.

That's my basic idea... sharing of information... If you are privy to some new shit, share it!

I suppose if anyone comes up with a good idea, we could try adding it to the site... I was thinking about adding a section for Great Dudes in History, with a way to vote them up/down the list... maybe do the same with quotes from great dudes

I tried to sign in with my normal wiki account, and I then tried to make one on the wiki itself, but I cannot do either. Also, there are no permissions to create pages, I was wondering if you could allow people to edit and create pages?

Well dude, the whole idea is to let people edit and create pages... I'm just not a master of MediaWiki... apparently the default settings disabled user creation, but I enabled it now

There may be bugs to work out... details, ya know

...I'm hoping this will become a reference for all things Dudeist... everything from reading material, like Tao Te Ching summary/translation, to quotes and bios from Great Dudes in History... We'll have a list for any holidays, like Lebowski Fest...


If anyone wants to help get some material started before the rug pissers show up, shoot me a PM and I'll hook you up with the URL
Something a bit more searchable than the forum? Could be worthwhile as although there is a great deal of information on the forum, as a relative newcomer, I have found it difficult at times to locate information amongst the posts. While the chat serves excellently to put things in context, it can often obscure the main message for anything other than a detailed reading of the whole thread.

My question would be to what extent will we downplay TBL as part of Dudeism? Are you wanting us to cast off our robes, shave our facial hair (if any), and never touch a white russian again?

I do agree we need to expand the church. I think as priests we should consider how to take Dudeism from its present state as what some might call an e-religion and bring it in to the physical world. Something to consider would be recognition by the government as a religion. In the U.S. I believe we are required to have a congregation, a place of worship, and the congregation must contribute some amount of time to community service.

So to attain recognition we must first find a way to get people interested. I wouldn't think this step would be too hard, we have more ordained priests than most other religions do members. At this point in my ramblings I now see the importance of not making the religion about TBL. :)

Im 100% behind bringing into a physical reality. I know in Massachusetts,  you have to file corporation papers then convert to a non-profit status. But then how would that work with the already existing structure? I wanna reach out to the Dudely Lama and pick his brain on this. I think a solid PR blast, tinker around with some ethos maybe?

dudes, it comes from my living the way, the journey is rewarding, and the quest for  taking it easier on all fronts is hard to put in words.  I suggest  for cannonization, if it harshes your ease name it and fix it.
