I've figured it out. Veridican is short for Very Idiotic American.
It all makes sense now.
Well, as much sense as Edward can make.

All quite funny, considering that the real Verdi was quite heterodox.

My favorite atheistic musician of that era: Beethoven.

Dedicated a symphony to a prominent atheist, then withdrew the dedication when said atheist went back to being a Roman Catholic. :coolspecs:

A) I got bored of this thread and stopped reading about page 3.

B) I'm posting a reply anyway.

Go fuck yourself, continuity.

Any posts that have 100 or more responses is me.

You could disappear from this forum, and I don't think anyone would even notice. When I'm gone for more than 24 hours you all make up posts supposedly to mock me.
Nope, it doesn't work that way.

The whole reason I don't even post a new article, is because it seems like I'm taking over the entire R&P board, and I don't want to do that.

So bite me.

You posted something about Boston. Have you donated blood yet? Have you donated blood ever?

Brother Edward wrote:Below are the two tenets of my faith. I have held these to be true for nearly twenty years. Veridicanism is twenty years old, but in the very begining it had lots of tenets. Now there are only two, the truth distilled if you will.

1. God is monistic in nature.

By this, I mean that everything that exists is made from the substance of God; therefore, God is really the only thing that actually exists. Everything else He created from His substance.

A good model of this is a dream. Everything in a dream is made from one substance--the dreamers consciousness.

So, God is the fundamental monstic consciousness.


2. The human purpose is to be Christ.

"Christ" means God, conscious of Himself, from inside His creation. The human being was created for no other reason. It is our place in universal nature. We were created to be the vehicles God travels around the physical universe in.

A good model for this would be a lucid dream, that is a dream where you know you're dreaming.

That is the philosophy of Veridicanism, the Veridican religion is defined by its Articles of Faith. You can read those here if you want.

The thing about those two tenets is that they are necessarily true. That's why I believe them. I believe them, because there is no rational way to doubt them.
If everything is God, and our purpose is to be Christ, then how do you explain Hitler?

Hitler was God? Charming.

Yeah, but we're a small village, more of a hamlet really, and we already have JA. Brother Eddie gives us a surplus.

Alas, poor Edward! I knew him, Horatio.
Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

Bumpity bump.

Trying out some of the links earlier in the thread I find Veridicanism has joined Jahalia and Horizontalism among the fides defunctae. :coolspecs:
