Two alternative models of Discordianism are presented here. Both of these models are false and stupid. 1. Discordianism, also known as Erisianism, is an ancient irreligion, dating back to the Cthulhuvian epoch and High Atlantis, and concealing among its tenets the secrets of the cosmos and the guiding principles of all creation. Modern-day Discordianism arose following a supernatural visitation in a bowling alley in California. Among other things, Discordianism has its own calendar, holidays and saints. For more information, consult your pineal gland, and then consult the Principia Discordia. Or not. 2. Discordianism is a joke, but it conceals a serious commentary on religion's unfortunate tendency to make people unwilling to laugh at themselves. It is based on the ancient Greek legend of the Golden Apple of Kallisti ("To the Beautiful One"), which was reported by Lucian to have started the Trojan War, but which was unknown in Homer. Eris or Discordia was the Greek goddess of discord, usually portrayed in tattered and bloodstained clothing, and bringing omens of doom. In Discordianism she was reinterpreted into a more benign trickster, a symbol of the 1960's rebellion against corrupt and conformist social structures. Discordianism is best known not from its entertaining root scripture, Kerry Thornley's "Principia Discordia," but from the works of Robert Anton Wilson, the occult novelist who brought Discordianism to a wide audience. Aren't you glad you asked? PS. Discordianism exerted a major influence on the later traditions of Chaos Magick and the Church of the Sub-Genius.
