Apocrypha Discordia, 2001 version

Enhanced for Eriscape
Includes the Entire Printed Version and
Hard to Find Selections from the
original 1994
Non-Existent Apocrypha Discordia
Apocrypha Discordia was proposed by somebody (possibly Russel Dalenberg, on
the usenet group who told or posted the idea to
Steve Jackson,
a long-time Discordian who at the time was running a Discordian discussion site.
Jackson, who created the Illuminati card game, published
Principia Discordia in 1994
and included a note about possibly publishing an
Apocrypha Discordia, if they got
enough material in the true Discordian spirit. In 1994,
Reverend Loveshade, then
known as Episkopos Loveshade, wrote some Discordian stuff and submitted it. After
hearing nothing for quite a while, in 1995 the Rev allowed
BloodStar to publish
some of this material on a website as being from the
Non-Existent Apocrypha
. As far as we can tell, this was the first site to claim to have material from
any version of
Apocrypha Discordia.

In 2001, at the same time that a radical group was planning an attack on New York
City and Washington D.C., the
Apocrypha Discordia was compiled by the Rev.
DrJon Swabey
and illuminated by Pope Phil Wlodarczyk III with a lot of cool stuff
by too many people to list here. But it did include a mention of BloodStar and material
by Reverend Loveshade. This did wonders for their egos. It also created an irony in
that material that the Rev had long claimed was from the non-existent
was now in the existent Apocrypha Discordia.  Later these were translated
into German, becoming part of
Apocrypha Diskordia

Below is a link to the entire Apocrypha Discordia, 2nd edition; selections by
Reverend Loveshade that appeared in the first version of
Apocrypha Discordia, the
1995 online version; and a copy of a
Wikipedia article on the books, all suitable for
printing and wrapping fish.  There are also link to dead-tree editions of the 2nd ed.

(As DrJon pointed out, "Five Blind Men and an Elephant" is the only piece that
appeared in the both the original 1995 online edition and the 2001 printed edition of
Apocrypha Discordia--they are distinct works.)
