Sorry Rev Ed C, I did not mean "christian" as in the Christian Religion, but in a christian manner with Popes and Bishops and Dogma and all the other rules and sacraments and other shit that come along with christianizing a philosophy or belief.
I was Not accusing you of being a Christian...god forbid! ;D, but of thinking in a "christianizing" way.

No worries man.  I see the word Christian and I guess there's a kind of haze falls over my vision as well ;)

One day, we'll all sit around a real table and talk things out with real words and not confuse the hell out of each other with pixels :)

I think when I say movement and such it does conjour up an image of enforced change.  I just think we should think about these things.  Dudeism is key, anything else is a bonus, be it Lebowski, Taoism, Buddhism or any of that crap I put into my articles.  We don't want laws, commandments or heirachy, just an ideal that acts like a neutron.

I've not problem with Lebowski being an electron in our atom, along with everything from ancient Greek philosophy to Bill Hicks fuzzing around in there, as long as it's not the neutron itself! ;D

Thanks for writing that CCK, you've help remind me of my core beliefs about all this. I agree that there may indeed be some that want to over-think and over-complicate the whole thing; that they take Dudeism (and themselves) too seriously. Which is a trait of the religious; those who like the belief more than what the belief teaches. I think it's good that this is the 'slowest growing religion in the world", which to me says that there's little to no proselytizing.

Hominid, man, much like CC, I respect you, but sometimes I worry about the things you say.  Many, many times you've pointed the finger of seriousness towards me.  Err... I don't see it myself.  If anything, my special lady complains I'm not serious enough :P  ... which sometimes gets me in serious trouble ;)

If this forum isn't a place where we can toss the philosophical pigskin around, what is it?  We have a plethora of different boards for different subjects.  And, several times I've suggested to people that if they don't want to get involved in these discussions and musings they don't have to :)  I don't partake in discussions that doesn't interest me, so I expect that is my or any other "brit"'s lighthearted musings are not to the taste of others they'll ignore them.  If you want to get involved and discuss, please do, but please don't complain that we're too serious.  You don't get the joke, swap channels and find a sitcom more to your liking 8)

Sometimes I worry I oversmily... sometimes I worry I undersmily because they all get ignored.  Is there one for a friendly ogre? ;D

Not looking to ruffle feathers here... just speaking my corner, because once again, I feel a little boxed into it ;)

What I type is, like, my opinion! ;) If you feel "got at", I can't really help you taking anything personally... I've not mentioned names... ever.  This forum allows varied opinions... I shared mine. If I don't punctuate my postings with enough smilies and "IMDO"'s, then you have my full permission to inject them at will.

Well actually Popes and Bishops and Dogmas are a feature of Catholicism and other offsprings of Christianity and not of JCD religion. I see what you mean cck but you know I like splitting hairs. See it like the satellite thing from Rev. Ed, at least that's as I see it.  8)

As for the ID cards I find them cool, and useful if someone has to show proofs of ordination without having to go around with the certificate. Imdo.  ;D

Personally, I think my dude-like nature is my ID.

What I would like is my Dudespaper Press Pass.  I can get into political party conferences and review the bar ;D

I second the Dudespaper Press Pass too, if that's the correct nomenclature.  ;D

Would an ID card get me discounts on bowling, oat sodas, smoke, vaginal artwork, rugs, the rent, white russians, caucasians, theater, jelly saddles, beepers, in-and-out-bugers (those are good burgers), speed of light tours (bunch of assholes), ralphs, robes? ;D I'm thinking 15%

If you can negotiate it, it will come!

Rev Ed, i fear the hassles of registering with the press association to get your press pass would tip you over the edge but i would be more than willing to provide a reference if needed :) who knows, perhaps this could be the answer to your employment woes?
