Sure, everyone has the right to choose his own path, and if he cares about lines, that's cool. Not much sure if every chosen path belongs to Dudeism though.  I mean every one can say I'm a Dude, if then he's really a Dude has to be demonstrated. There can be a difference. A lot of people fill their mouth saying I'm a Christian but in reality go around with a torch, or hammer and nails, behind their back. Saying something is one thing, being something sometimes is another. Dudely debates help to make things clearer. 8)

And female Dudes help keep things in the right perspective. Imho.  ;D

Hey thinkingdude, no problems at all. I said it just because I know my name is used in English-speaking countries that way so I misunderstood your saying, probably it's time for me to follow another English course, well, maybe next year.  ;D

New shit has come to light dudes.
I 'acquired' this from ULC Tribal.

In the beginning,we need all kinds of help.
Then,if growth is not stunted,we become adults.
It is in the way of things,if not "The Way".
We are not supposed to remain as dependent children
following someone elses dogma and dictates.

It's like "This is how you cut a path through the wilderness,now clear off and cut your own.Don't turn mine into a muddy track".
I think Ray Mears is a dude.
Down the trail dudes.
If you believe you can tell me what to think.
I believe I can tell you where to go.

You're surely right. Nevertheless Dudeism is based also on listening to the words of people wiser than ourselves, like the Dudely Llama. At least that's as I see it. Luckily he's not into either dogmas or dictates.

As a philosophy Dudeism can be "followed" by every dudely person around, even those who prefer to walk their own path as they see fit, total freedom and so on; Dudeism as a religion instead is organized as the Dudely Llama says. Not that the two things can't go hand in hand anyway. I mean, this is just my opinion, humble or complicated.  8)

Let's not feed Olivers ego too much here. ;D

I know he formulated the concept but let's not canonize him yet, he has to perform a number of Dudeist miracles, then his body should not decay when he is buried (yep got to be dead before you can be listed as canonized).

Once the idea (Dudeism) became public domain it belongs to all of us. Which is what this forum is about. But no one person's viewpoint is correct. which is why I get a bit annoyed at people posting "This Is Dudeism.." or "I do this because it is a Dudeist thing.."

I think this is where we fall down the hole of the western definition of "Religion" which is mostly based on the christian thing (erroneously). Where one must have rules and dogma in order to spot those that are in the religion and those that are not.

Dudeism, based on Taoism, takes the Eastern idea that it is a way of life, a way of being in the world but not of the world.

BTW

...
Then,if growth is not stunted,we become adults.
...

Not if I can bloody help it. I nearly disowned "The Godson From Hell" this weekend for suggesting I should be the "sensible" one.

Grow old disgracefully.

Better to see the world with the eyes of a child, than to exist childishly as petty, greedy, jealous, self centered individuals.

Agree.  ;D But let me say that I see him as more correct in his own point of view, or wiser than me... You surely get the point man.  :D

Btw, I think that to define something as Taoist the word must have a kind of specific meaning, just like Dudeism. I mean even if Dudeism encompasses everything being a dude means a more or less clear thing. An 8 yo man cannot be considered a Dude while being existent it's still part of Tao (I used the pronoun it on purpose). Part of Tao but not Dudeist or Dude.

I mean there should be a reason if something is Taoist and something else is Buddhist, or Shintoist. As for more or less total freedom of point of views ok but anything can either be Dudeist or not so this means that Dudeism is a specific thing, probably.

Aren't we splitting hairs here compeer?  ;D

As for the canonization even walking on water would be cool.  :D

Water into wine is more useful and gets you invited to more parties I think!

I agree with you 100%. But to be a real canonized dude he should transform water in beer. Water in wine has been already done.  :D
