Listen up Ego-maniacs! This one’s a no-brainer, quite literally!
Rev. Ivan Stang from the Church of the Subgenius is instructing an 6-week course(April 6th – May 31st) over at MaybeLogic.org
If you’re a fan of the Subgenius podcasts, then surely you’ll get one hell of a kick out of his Running Your Own Cult: Do’s & Don’ts.
This will be my first time attending the Maybe Logic Academy, and I am pysched! I will be posting updates on my ‘progress,’ just to make use of all this damn web space I’ve got.
I encourage everyone to register for this ‘class’ and take the next step to turning your brain back into silly-putty!
Below is an short synopsis of the course as displayed on the MyabeLogic.org courses page:
Running Your Own Cult: Do’s & Don’ts
A SubGenius Extravaganza
This course is really Volume Two of “The SubGenius Psychlopaedia of Slack — The Bobliographon,” a new SubGenius book from Thunder’s Mouth Press. This material — basically a behind-the scenes history of The Church of the SubGenius and an investigation into the nature of belief — requires way too much multimedia to work as just a book. But it’s perfect for an 8-week online course.
At the end of the course, students will have designed and developed their own religious cult to the point of marketability.
Rev. Ivan Stang is compiling the most telling true-life anecdotes, photos, video and audio clips that illustrate the Church of the SubGenius story since 1980. These “most telling” moments are also usually the funniest, although some are tragic indeed. They also prompt all manner of questions and observations about the nature of religion and philosophy.
