I Just Discovered Dudeism

While the world is busy fighting over ascertaining which is the greater religion, I kicked back and started net surfing. And I discovered that there is a religion called Dudeism! Many believe it to be a mock religion, but the priests (His Arch Dudeship, no less) take it pretty seriously. Some states legalize marriage done by Dudeism priests.

Seriously. I had no idea. The only stuff you are supposed to do to join this religion is this:

No kidding. Here’s what Wikipedia has to say about the Dudeist philosophy:

“The Dudeist belief system is essentially a modernized form of Taoism stripped of all of its metaphysical and medical doctrines. Dudeism advocates and encourages the practice of “going with the flow”, “being cool headed”, and “taking it easy” in the face of life’s difficulties, believing that this is the only way to live in harmony with our inner nature and the challenges of interacting with other people. It also aims to assuage feelings of inadequacy that arise in societies which place a heavy emphasis on achievement and personal fortune. Consequently, simple everyday pleasures like bathing, bowling, and hanging out with friends are seen as far preferable to the accumulation of wealth and the spending of money as a means to achieve happiness and spiritual fulfillment.”

Just kick back, relax, and become a…Dudeist? Dude? I have no idea! What do YOU think about Dudeism?
