To a certain extent we hold principles of anonymity here, people who talk here do post on the Dudespaper but use other names here because they wish to keep both areas separate, as is their right.

And using the comments on the page means you are talking to the person themselves (if, as many do, they are watching the comments for constructive criticism).

Finally I'm sure there are data protection issues involved as well (on both sides of the pond) which mean we are not just going to give information like that out.

If the person wishes to be contacted they will have given contact details on the page on the Dudespaper.

Just catching up with posts and find it interesting this topic is on the dudespaper while a recent thread "discussing" religious related postings was locked out.
Was the thread causing too many negative vibes and if so should the article also be removed as it is religious in tone?
By the way, happy new year all

No No do not remove. The thread you refer to is resolved no need to bring in false marmots to the bath. The article on Dudespaper has high votes and does not push any belief, rather shows how uptight christians need chill and take it easy. Good stuff for those dudes like me, so please dont take it down. That would be, like pissing on my rug.

Happy Dude year to you also  8)

I dig that.
As far as the article goes it does point out the nearly universal hippocracy in Chistianity (the leader lives in a palace called the vatican? Cmon!)
But to be honest I really believe that what Christians think and do is and should be dictated by Christian text, not by the individual. And the foundational belief are not chill at all IMHO.
The Nicene creed is the nutshell version of core beliefs and none of it is optional. If it doesn't work for you then it's pretty simple. Yer not a Christian no matter how much you dig the Jesus' style.

Nicene creed.

--- Quote ---I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.

And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds; God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God; begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father, by whom all things were made.

Who, for us men for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary, and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; He suffered and was buried; and the third day He rose again, according to the Scriptures; and ascended into heaven, and sits on the right hand of the Father; and He shall come again, with glory, to judge the quick and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no end.

And I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life; who proceeds from the Father [and the Son]; who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; who spoke by the prophets.

And I believe one holy catholic and apostolic Church. I acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins; and I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.

Tell Christians to chill all you like but seems to me that the foundations are not in any respect "chill".
Compare that to Dudeism

--- Quote ---Down through the ages, this ?rebel shrug? has fortified many successful creeds ? Buddhism, Christianity, Sufism, John Lennonism and Fo?-Shizzle-my-Nizzlism. The idea is this: Life is short and complicated and nobody knows what to do about it. So don?t do anything about it. Just take it easy, man. Stop worrying so much whether you?ll make it into the finals. Kick back with some friends and some oat soda and whether you roll strikes or gutters, do your best to be true to yourself and others ? that is to say, abide.

To me it looks like arrogant certainty versus intellectual humility.
Discussions about Christianity in the context of Dudeism tend to be the thorniest we deal with in my experience.
Comparing the above 2 creeds it seems evident to me that one can not be a Christian and a Dude.
But that's just like my opinion man.
I just know that I shouldn't open this can of worms but ..... ah fuck it man.

Caesar dude:
I couldn't agree more Biker Dude.

It's more like mumbo jumbo versus rational thought.

I've watched horror films with less fiction in them than that creed!

Peace.
