Dragonism: A New Religion For A New Age

I am disappointed with the available choices of religions in the world. It’s a pretty dry and sparse selection. So I have decided to do something about it, and invent some new, better, more interesting ones. Here’s the first:

Our world was created by a powerful cosmic Dragon to serve as an incubator, and the Dragon is even now gestating at the center of the earth. The Dragon created life on earth because the energy field generated by life itself powers and sustains the Dragon while it sleeps and regenerates.

Yet even as the Dragon sleeps, our world is under siege by the Darklings, who feed on hate, fear and malice. They are unable to come into the world physically, but they can whisper, urge and trick us to do evil, and they can use that evil to harvest the world’s life-field energy, weakening the Dragon and preventing the Dragon from fully regenerating. Furthermore, by decaying the life-field–by polluting the earth and ruining the ecosystem–the world becomes more suceptible to Darkling harvest and less able to nourish the Dragon.

The Dragon sleeps, but in through the hazy lens of its dream-slumber it can communicate with us, and even let us use some of its power.

All of the great prophets of history have been servants of the Dragon, whether or not they knew it, interpreting the Dragon’s messages and leading humanity in the moral battle against the Darklings.

When the Dragon awakens, the world will be destroyed, but all life will undergo an apotheosis with the Dragon, and then, united with it, we will soar into cosmic battle along with the Dragons gestating on other worlds like ours, all arrayed against the forces of darkness, which is a cycle that repeats itself over and over again.

I feel like there’s a lot of potential thereand a lot of room for interesting interpolations and ideas. Lots of room for expansion of theology, mysticism and practice. I should probably get started writing some scriptures.

Note: this is not necessarily my religion. Just one I invented.

    I love it! I have long been obsessed with dragons. :) I look forward to your scriptures lol.

  3. Kullervo says:

    I will endeavor not to keep you waiting too long.

  4. Jared C says:

    Let me know when the theology gets to the point where there is serious contemplation and discussion over the nature, meaning and effect of the dragon fart. Then your religion will have arrived.

  5. Kullervo says:

    This is the ground level, Jared C. You are empowered to develop the theology any way you want to. If I disagree, we can even have a schism.

  6. Jared C says:

    Does the dragon fight the darklings when he wakes up, why do they care if it is not fully regenerated? i.e. will the darklings ultimately get an ass-beating for jerking us around? Does the dragon care about the quality of the energy or just the quantity? Does and exquisite or unique life matter any more than a standard pretty good life?

  7. Kullervo says:

    Jared, I hereby ordain you a Servant of the Dragon.

  8. Jared C says:

    Ok, it turns out the Dragon does kick darkling ass when he wakes up. The cycle of justice is in balance. To all of those who were waiting for this light and knowledge. YOU’RE WELCOME!

  9. Jared C says:

    For the record: The Dragon’s metabolism appreciates this sort of colorful stuff :

    But not this sort of fracking stuff.

    I have develop my own branch of Dragonism before seeing this post. My Dragonism concept lies on the origin concept and the 8 pillars concept. If you would like to hear more please reply to this post.

    Kullervo what made u decide to create a religion such as dragonism.

    Killervo, I am a super huge fan of Dragonism. Believe it or not, I actually came up with the idea of Dragonism quite independently including the sleeping Cosmic Dragon who we can power up through our virtuous actions…. even as far as calling the bad guys Darklings. You came up with all this a few years before me… but I feel like it is a synchronisity that I came to similar conclusions and then googled Dragonism to see if it was already taken… and your awsome proto religion came up. Good job dude!
