What I like of Dudeism is that it focuses more on similarities with other religions or philosophies and less on differences, which is one of the reasons why it's the coolest religion on the planet.  8)

As usual, AF, I'm right with you on that! :D

This thread is why I finally registered here after being ordained since 09. After much reading I see this way of life headed in a good general direction as a group. I would like to see it removed a bit further from TBL but not separated as the movie did bind us all and allow us to unite loosely, freely and somewhat together in thought.

Some points about the reduction in mocking others with the latter day dude being removed would be nice as it really is not needed. It can make it look bad just like the followers of the FSM's parodies cause them to be a joke in circles. Dudeism when used as a form of taoism is far from a joke. I do like the pastafarians and am friends with more of them IRL then dudes I even dabbled in Pastafarianism myself.

I was raised in a somewhat religious family and do miss the community type feel around it but am happy to be removed away from the low boiling hate to others that are different that seeps from it. If there where to be dudeist lodges or facilities I image a moose lodge or VFW type atmosphere would be nice. Maybe some aquaponic gardening and other crafts could be produced and sold to cover rent keeping oat soda prices next to nothing. I don't think any sort of tithing or leaning on people for ridiculous donations should be expected however it being able to produce something to self sustain might be a good option.

Glad we've inspired you there, Cookie dude :)  Welcome aboard, I'm sure you can find the bar (it's not that well hidden!) :P

Like with all things around here, it's a slow move down a 10mph street in the middle of a lazy town.  The Dudeist community is very split in the ways they communicate.  Between the musings on the forum, the insightful articles on the Dudespaper and the generic bits that come through Facebook, we're not particually cohesive.

Maybe when The Rug becomes activated in the future we can try and link things all under one roof.  But for that to happen we'll have to have some sort of group of administrators, and at the moment we're a bit of a loose collection with most of the work being done by the Dudely Lama, who also has a real life ("A what???", I hear you ask) to balance.  But, y'know, slow and steady wins the race, and all that jazz :)

yeah, but we're about to replace it with better software. we announced the beta version of the site a few months ago and it crashed in five minutes. should have a new one up soon.

mainly, we hope that it will help dudeists set up and maintain local (or virtual) parishes. tie people together, you know?

been having second thoughts about using "www.therug.org" - might use "www.dudeism.net" to keep it more closely linked to dudeism. thoughts anyone?
I'll tell you what I'm blathering about...

If being local is the import, then why not use the word "local" in the URL... like "www.localdudeism.com" or "www. pullupalocalrug", or "www.localrugfordudes.com"... you get my drift.

As a non-partaker, and seeing as my special lady was actually put off Dudeism a little by the "Burn A J Day" campaign, I'm not sure that's really an inclusive sort of message.

Surely, we're missing a trick with:  Abide.somethingorother :)

It's our core message, inclusive, inoffensive, non-insiteful or preachy.... If we're not going with Dudeism, surely, Abide is the way 8)

I was touching on the "lighter side" of Dudeism, but if we are to touch on the the more series side, I would suggest "dudeistthinking.org" or perhaps "considerdudeism.org" ".Org" because of the concept of a loosely nitted organization.
