From the religion’s website… “Pity the poor human Earth Pink who comes looking for a SIMPLE, SHORT EXPLANATION of The Church of the SubGenius™, one that he or she can UNDERSTAND QUICKLY. If the Church could provide THAT, it would be bigger than Islam or Christianity by now — and probably much, much worse.”
“REPENT! QUIT YOUR JOB! SLACK OFF!”

Church of Emacs (and the Church of Vi)


Smst.Ignucius

The Church of Emacs, formed by Richard Stallman, is a joke, and while it refers to vi as the “editor of the beast” (vi-vi-vi being 6-6-6 in Roman numerals) , it does not oppose the use of vi; rather, it calls proprietary software an anathema. (“Using a free-software version of vi is not a sin; it is a penance.”[2]) It has its own newsgroup, alt.religion.emacs, that has posts purporting to support this parody religion.

  1. Would you believe I actually know a Discordian?#7 sounds suspiciously like a Douglas Adams joke.LOL @ #5 and #4. Is that rms dressed as a Rabbi? 😀Pastafarianism… I always thought Dawkins came up with that.

  2. I guess I am not too surprised, there are some people I know who act like they are discordian, although they are unaware of it…. #7 might be, since most of these crazy belief systems are based on satire. RMS? dk…Jesus? maybe…lol…It maybe true that Darwin thought up Pastafarianism ideas but the FSM church is recent development from Bobby Henderson and I am not making any claims it is all from the article I found
