Chances are, unless you are heavily cloistered, you've come across a somewhat scatalogical list summarizing several major religions and philosophies. The original was 12 or so entries long, and is most commonly found on T-shirts. I don't know who came up with it -- I've never seen it credited.
Well, sometime around 1992, I and several people from a BBS network that I used to frequent started expanding on that list, and soon we had more than a hundred entries. It was originally just for our amusement, but somehow that expanded list made it out onto the Net, where in the grand tradition of all such things, it began to mutate and grow.
Around 1998, I decided to try to collect and compile all the versions that were out there, and sort of bring it back under the control of one of the original contributors, inasmuch as it was actually possible to do that. I finally came up with what several sites, including The Internet Infidels, consider the definitive version. Now, for the first time, I'm making it available on my own site.
Yes, I know there are sometimes multiple entries for the same philosophy/religion/whatever. That happened when there were several equally good but different interpretations; I didn't want to lose any of them, so I used them all.
Also, the List is not set in stone. If you have a new entry you'd like to contribute, feel free to email it to me, using the link in the menu above. I won't guarantee to use it, but I'll certainly give it all due consideration.
Finally, a Warning for the squeamish! This list is profoundly scatalogical by its very nature. If this is likely to upset you, don't read it! Devout adherents to many of these belief systems may find it offensive. If that describes you, don't read it! If for some reason it is illegal in your area to read material of this nature, go ahead, try a little civil disobedience. It's good for you.
