Dude, instead of baptising your little achiever why not just bless him.  You can put your hand on his head and say something like: 

"I Rev(your name) hereby bless you into the spirit of Dudeism.  May you always abide in dudeliness and take'er easy.  Far out man!"

Modifications should probably be done for dudes under legal age so oat soda's and things of that nature will have to wait until he get's older.  After you bless him take him out and treat him to something special that he really digs.  Dudeism is a totally far out spiritual journey the possibilities are endless!

Dude baptism? Naked in a tub of oat sodas? With coitus after?

Eight year olds, dude? No, that would be very undude. After all, this a family restaurant.

 8) - Greetings Dude(s),

I just got my ordination this week, however, I do have an opinion about baptising for dudeism.

Baptismals are a BAPTIST tradition, so it has literally no standing in any other religion.
A baptism is the acceptance that Christ is your savior.

Just like an atheists enterance into the the atheist religion (yes, atheism is a relgion, guaranteed) is to REJECT god.

Pastafarians are like Dudeists in that they see a humor toward their beliefs, though a pastafarian is scientific and a dudeist has a more spiritual attidude.

If you want to create a tradition in the dudeist church, it has to start with your ministry. You can do whatever you want. If then the high dude or his dudliness or the arch dude or whomever decides its a groovy and otherwise all encompassing practice for the benefit of dudes everywhere, than it will be officially given the holy high five or the transcendental thumbs up.

You'll have to call it something other than 'dudeist baptismal' or anything reference baptist.   

Here are some suggestions. Dudeified, Dudelyized, Humbly dude'ed, Mellowed,etc


You're damned if you dude, you're damned if you don't.

I totally agree with you, your dudeness.

You don't get to being what a 'dudeist' mindset  is by starting out on your 'inner journey' as a dudeist. 

It is possible to raise some little dudes and dudettes with a laid back, spiritual, and dudely belief structure, but what is the reward of self realization without the struggle and adventure of realizing the falacy of other religions?

Simply being told you are a dudeist, and then set off into the world, with no regard or fundamentals may do more damage than good.

Seriously, if you want to do a 'dudetismal' , they should follow up with lessons and studies about other religions, WHY you should study, and how to question even your own dudeist beliefs.

I was raised Christian, and had no regard for anything till I decided to question who I really was, after years of religious study (I'm 26 now) and piles of religious text, including spiritual beliefs, and athiest studies; I still had to incorporate my own life experiences and 'inner journey' before I made my mind up who I was. Just me!
You're damned if you dude, you're damned if you don't.

actually the word baptism only means "to clean" in greek: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baptism

so if you want to do a dudeist baptism, then feel free. you can call it whatever you like. personally, i vote for "naptism." you basically take a bath and then sleep for a bit. or vice versa. or you could take a shit and then take a shower. that would be "craptism." nah, naptism's better.
I'll tell you what I'm blathering about...

Yep with you there, a nice warm bath, a joint, and a glass of whatever takes your fancy, bit of music in the background.

I find that if I fill the bath correctly I can take a book in as well (not just the visual aid to doing it manually either, though if thats your thing why not) and rest my elbows on the bottom of the bath without getting the book wet.

yes getting your book wet is no good, luckily i have a solution for that. High protein diet. you'll finish your book on the toilet, get rid of the bath, find a hot tub, add liquor, leggy blondes, and stir.

Not too sure about this whole "baptism" thing going on. A dude is a dude because a dude decides to live the life of a dude, not because he gets his ass dunked in a tub of water by some other dude.

Sparks of too much dead religion and useless religious ritual.

Dudeism is simple; live like a dude. Fuck all that other undude ceremony stuff and religious trappings.

That's just like my opinion man.

Fucking eh, man. The digitalbuddha is getting a tad worried about the whole religious thing going on. It seems to me, after a few oat sodas don't you know, that all of the calls for this or that, organization, ritual, etc. will turn Dudeism into just another burdensome religion with rules, a status quo, undude arguing and debate, power struggles to be "top dude," and the like.

I would dig seeing dudeism remain at the first draft and not the comprised second draft. Its like Lenin said; "you look for the person who benefits..." Ahh, you know what I'm saying. Who will benefit from all of this dude religion stuff?

Before long we will have this or that "denomination" of dudeism with each dude sect fighting against the other claiming that they represent "real dudeism" and all others are fake wanna bees.

A dude should think for him or herself. Lets not forget, let's NOT forget, that dudeism began as a simple idea...abide.

Jesus, can't dig that organized shit, man. Organized religion.....VERY UNDude!

sorry for quoting almost the entire thread.

Glad to hear DB making these comments.

Lets be honest, some dudes need ritual (I myself can't get comfortable on the sofa until I've turned round twice, possibly a throw back to a past life where I'm stepping down reeds to make a nest), if you feel ritual is important go for it, but I do agree with DB let's not prescribe ritual.

An ex-Buddhist friend of Klaus and myself tells the story of why he left his particular Buddhist group. It appears the group was reduced to arguing over whether the door to where the "sacred Texts" were kept was open or closed if it was partially open or partially closed. Their reliance on ritual was so deep they couldn't even agree on the ritual.

We don't want to get into this shite the Pharasee's got into where you can't carry a handkerchief on the Sabbat because that's work, but if you wear it round your waist it then becomes a belt that is an item of clothing.

As an Erisian Pagan (Fnord) as well I only join disorganised religions.

And will continue to fight against the christianisation of Dudeism (nothing against Dudeist Christians, thats your thing man, but not for me).

I'm quite content to see all the little dudeists doing there own rituals in their own way in their own place as long as it's made clear these are not essential and belong to the individual Dudeist.

What next we'll be cutting bits off ourselves to prove that we are the true chosen Dudeists?
