I'm just curious about what bridge needs to be crossed to go from being considered parody to "official". At what magical point was it that Scientology or Church of latter day saints was accepted as not parody for example. I'm sure lobbying and money was involved, something that most of these honorable religions on the list haven't/won't do. Especially Dudeism.
One who is a Dude must before all things keep constantly in mind...the fact that he has to take it easy.

                         "All you needed was a sap to pin it on, and
                         you'd just met me.  You thought,
                         hey, a deadbeat, a loser, someone
                         the square community won't give a
                         shit about.

                                     LEBOWSKI
                         Well?  Aren't you?

                                     DUDE
                         Well. . . yeah."

Just came to mind, keeping it limber with cheap whiskey. From their point of view its a joke religion, and its kind of true. Every religion is a joke religion, just think about all the "founding myths" they have. Im not suprised they called Dudeim a joke religion, Im suprised people still dont call every other religion a joke, man.

Wrong on two counts, Dudeism and Erisian, but to quote my boss this evening, Eris will get them.

Fuck it.  Can't be worrying about that shit.  Life goes on!  Besides, consider the source--who cares about a bunch of assholes who think it's cool to spell "Tens" with a z?

I can't disappoint by missing an opportunity to point out another of the ways that the "biggies" meet the criteria of being a "parady" religion.
For instance....
The Vatican set the world record for paraquatism by profiteering on the Holocaust.

By World War II, the church had sizeable investments and created the Vatican Bank in order to hide its financial dealings with the Nazis from the U.S. and Britain.

"I was surprised to the extent to which the Vatican was deeply embedded with German companies," Posner says. "They bundled together life insurance policies of Jewish refugees who had been sent to Auschwitz and other death camps. They escheated these policies early on ? meaning they took the cash value of them."

Later, when the surviving children or grandchildren of the victims tried to collect on the insurance policies, they were refused. "These insurance companies would refuse to pay out saying: 'Show us a death certificate,' which they knew was impossible," Posner explains. "They would keep the money."

Now tell me that any of the fucks at the league office give one good wet fart for anything Jesus said. They are just in the business of making others believe it.

Were I ever to meet this gentleman on the street there is only one thing I could think of to say to him.
"No, you're not wrong, man. You're just an asshole."

Ah, fuck 'em. Personally I think most of the "proper" religions are essentially parodies at this point. The way they're often applied in our times makes a mockery of the entire purpose they claim to serve.

Fuck it. Who cares what some ponce with a smart accent and a cleft asshole thinks about what we do. Clearly his life must be very empty to spend time making such videos.

Christianity started as a Roman cult about a carpenter that chased the money changers out of a temple.

Dudeism started as movie about a stoner looking to get compensation for a piss stained rug.

I fail to see how one is more or less valid than the other.

Especially since they're both based (as far as we know) on the words and actions of fictional characters.

Actually the Dude is based on the real Dude, Jeff Dowd, an associate of the Coen Brothers.

And there is a mention of JC in another document (allegedly), the dead sea scrolls.

Though the second is debatable.

True, and I understand your point, but Dudeism is based on a movie with a central character named Jeffrey Lebowski, not Jeff Dowd.

Well, that's the thing.  I don't claim to be an expert on the matter, but from what I've read there are those who claim there is physical evidence that proves the existence of Jesus Christ (other than the Bible and a handful of other documents, that is), and just as many who claim there isn't.  I suppose my bigger question is, why do so many people treat the Bible like it's an unimpeachable historical textbook?  In my late-teens and early-20s I spent a great deal of time among the Born-Again Christian crowd, and none of them, including the pastor of the church I attended occasionally, could answer this question.  Actually, that's not entirely accurate--the answer they gave when they didn't have a real answer was, "Well, you have to have faith."  That might be good enough for those who want to believe and are willing to suspend reason, but it was never good enough for the skeptic and/or the agnostic in me.  Hell, I have 25 books filled with stories about an English Lord named John Clayton who was raised by apes in Africa and later became known to the world at large as Tarzan.  So by Christian logic (or lack thereof), Clayton/Tarzan was a real person as well.  And so was Batman, Sherlock Holmes, Sam Spade, Count Dracula, Harry Potter, and so on, all because their respective exploits were contained in books that many people cherish.   ???

I completely agree on the bible side, I found out last year that there are copies of the bible extant (found during the Victorian period) that do not even have the resurrection in them, a central tenet to Roman Catholicism.

Here I have to say I don't agree, the Dude in the film is an example, much like the Buddhas, Dudeism is not based on the movie, the movie is not holy text. I think this is a fundamental mistake many people make the film is not scripture to Dudeists, it is my belief that you may be a Dudeist and not ever have heard of the film, take Lao Tsu for instance.

Dudeism is a way of being, I was a dudeist before I found the label to hang upon myself for the convenience of others.
