    Filesharing is now a religion in sweden

    File-sharing becomes a recognized religion in Sweden - Boing Boing

    Sweden has given official religious status to Church of Kopimism, a faith and philosophy based on file-sharing. The faith's foundational document, ""POwr, broccoli and Kopimi," is available as a .torrent file indexed on The Pirate Bay (natch). It exhorts followers to undertake 100 tasks to attain #g_d (a hashtagged, all-lower-case version of the observant Jewish tradition of writing God as "G_d").

    001. Obtain the Internet.
    002. Start using IRC.
    003. Group and birth a site.
    004. Experiment with research chemicals.
    005. Design a three-step program.
    006. Take a powerful stance for something positive and essential.
    007. Regulate nothing.
    008. Say that you have to move in two weeks, but stay for seven months. Come back a year later and do it all over again.
    009. ROTFLOL.
    010. Relax, you’re already halfway there.
    011. Just kidding.
    012. Don’t think outside the box. Build a box.
    013. Support support.
    014. Organize and go to parties and fairs.
    015. Start 30–40 blogs about the same things.
    016. Drain the private sector of coders, graphic artists and literati.
    017. Create a prize that is awarded.
    018. Express yourself often in the media, vaguely.
    019. Spread all rumors.
    020. Seek out and try carding, and travel by expensive trains. Don’t order sushi.
    021. Start a radio station.
    022. Everything you use, you can copy and give an arbitrary name, whether it’s a news portal, search engine or public service.
    023. Buy a bus.
    024. Install a MegaHAL.
    025. Make sure that you are really good friends with people who can use Photoshop, HTML, databases, and the like.
    As faith strictures go, these ones are actually pretty good. On the other hand, I'm not much of a believer in Gods, G_d or #g_d, so perhaps this isn't for me.

    holy file-sharing scripture:
    http://thepiratebay.org/torrent/4741...roccoli-kopimi

    don't say filesharing is illegal your stepping on my beliefs.

    Too bad I am an agnostic. If you know what that is, good for you. Oh Sweden, how you never fail to amaze me. Well, over and out! ^^

    Sweden - The land of freedom
    Hand-bra Jeans

    The exposure of the female's soft body. Whether you like it or not, being naked to the waist and the mismatch between the hard and thick jeans. The true essence is the union of girly and boyish styles.At the same time, the hand-bra forces even the current girls that lack shameful feelings to make an embarrassing pose. Depending on how it is seen, it also shows a form of eroticism by making it look like the girls are rubbing their own breasts.

    Legally speaking its not that difficult to get anything declared a religion.

    Its funny but stuff like this is where I always point to legal and philosophical differences being important. This is a classic example of abusing the legal definition of something for some tax loopholes (or for the lulz).

    In the legal community what your core beliefs are is ultimately irrelevant, what your religion needs is some well-defined, organized structure. Its why, to the legal community, something like Atheism or Transcendentalism isn't a religion. This most certainly has all the tenants necessary to fit the legal bill though.

    Some of this is because the legal community views religion as an organization, not a personal expression.

    Philosophically its almost the polar opposite, the existence of your religious structure isn't of particular importance. What is important is the nature of your core beliefs and principles. If whatever your viewpoint is needs to follow a few simple concepts and answer a few key questions, so long as it does it is a religion.

    This is why, in a philosophical sense, Atheism and Transcendentalism all of a sudden become a religion. It meets the criteria, ergo its a religious belief. Its because philosophy considers religion a personal expression. If you are say Catholic, its not important that the "church" exists, but rather the core tenants you believe.

    0-1: A game whose very existence is abhorrent to all things creative and intelligent.
    2-4: A just plain bad game.
    5-6: A game that has alot of mistakes, but is atleast playable and has some enjoyable sections. Good for a rent.
    7: An average game, should be played at some point
    8: A good game, should buy at some point
    9: A great game, day-one purchase
    10: A game that goes above and beyond the generation, its transcendent.

    Its no more logically or rationally justifiable than whatever religious belief you adopt.

    Sweden got it right with their file sharing laws (or lack thereof). Sure it's weird to start a RELIGION over it, but have you read some other Religious doctrines lately?........ it's not that much crazier, maybe even less crazy. I'm looking at you, Lord Xenu.
