    *Religious Roleplay* *not a party, but a faith*

    Welcome all, to the relgion of Chipism (recognized in wikipedia)!

    Basic Beliefs:

    The World which we inhabit was created by the One True and Holy Chip, Creator of The universe and all of its planes! Chip inhabited our planet with his spiritual essence and is our world.

    Chipism is a Henotheistic relgion, because while Chip is the One King/Creator, we aso beleive in a vast system of major and Minor Deities. Our religion is evolving, with gods being dicovered, our mythology(only oral until we discover writing), people ascending, beleifs changing. In time, there may even be Sects of Chipism.

    Chipism is an Inclusivistic Religon, which means we regonize other religions EXCEPT FOR ROBOPIG-WORSHIPand don't neccarly label them false. The current official message is that all religons are somehow linked to Chip. We regonize the First Church of State as a religious entity.

    This a constantly evolving religion, totally creative in nature. Anyone can join, worship, particape, add new beleif and all that jazz.

    Hopefully many converts to come!

    In the Beginning of Time, there was only Chip, born from the wishes of those yet unborn. With theomnipotenence he posessed from being the only thing, he set to work. We created the True Universe and all of its planes. For them he created the universal laws(sceitific laws, laws of physics). He created time and waited. As he waited, a he pondered his existence. While he pondered, planetsa formed, star sprang to life. And he found the answer to his pondering. Why should he be the only one who could do this. And a thought immerged in his brain. This thought was life. And he brought life into being and created life to inhabit his creation. His large work complete, he settled himself in a planet, inhabiting with his spirt, and this planet thrived. He last creation was for this planet alone. From his loins sprung the Last Creation. This Creation was humanity.

    Preliminary: After you die, if your soul is not taken by the Omegacat, you are sent to Rifva to await the ruling on whether you should be sent to Perosofo, the Perfect Paradise, or be re-incarnated!(needs a lot more meat)

    I'd like to become a Chipist. Also, we should think of more gods and change the english months to other names. It might be cool to take from other cultures calendars, like Arab, Hebrew, Chinese, etc...

With this contact by Micalian he told me I was to be his Oracal to the People. I accepted this responsibility by having the two inside fingers of both hand removed to make me permanently going:rockon:!!! He also wishes for us to have the mont known as "March" replaced with Mika

    OUR FIRST MYTH

    When the world was created by Chip their was Humanity. They lived good and peacful lives. But their was a problem. Their world was very, very boreing. So, Chip gave them a god known only as Micalian. Micalian would teach the people all things f-ing awesome and rad.

    For hundreds of years Micalian tried to teach the people but he was not succesful. What was his problem? How could he help the people live exciting lives. And above All, be realy COOL. Then one day durring a very unsucesful party Micalian talked to a man called "I am the Future". After talking to "I am the Future" for a while Micalian took a drink of rather old Grape Juice. This Grape juice gave Micalian a very strange feeling. He quickly decided that this was Rad. And since he was with I am the Future when it happened HE thought that I am the Future must be rad too.

    Micalian told I am the Future all of the secrets of the universe. Which didn't take a long time and turned out to not be all that rad. But, After knowing the secrets of the Universe I am the future had one very, very good idea. He would make this thing he called beer, he would then make television, and on this television he would advertise the beer with hot women who say they like guys who drink the beer.

    The invention of beer setup a chain reaction in the world. Their was soon other even Cooler drugs. Then their was War and soon after War ROCK MUSIC! Yes Micalian had done it, He had made the world f-ing awesome and totally rad!
