Church of Stop Shopping, The - Reverend Billy and the Stop Shopping Gospel Choir believe
that Consumerism is overwhelming our lives. "The corporations want us to have experiences only through their products. But if we 'back away from
the product' - even a little bit, well then we Put The Odd Back In God! The supermodels fly away and we're left with our original sensuality. So
we are singing and preaching for local economies and real - not mediated through products -- experience. We like independent shops where you know
the person behind the counter or at least - you like them enough to share a story.We ask that local activists who are defending themselves against
supermalls, nuke plants, gentrification -- call us and we'll come and put on our 'Fabulous Worship!' Remember children. Love is a Gift Economy!" - The
Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster - The deity of the parody religion the Church of
the Flying Spaghetti Monster or Pastafarianism. Created in 2005 by Oregon State physics graduate Bobby Henderson, it was originally
intended as a satirical protest against the decision by the Kansas State Board of Education to require the teaching of intelligent design as an
alternative to evolution in public schools. In an open letter sent to the Kansas State Board of Education, Henderson parodied the concept of intelligent
design by professing belief in a supernatural creator which closely resembles spaghetti and meatballs. Henderson further called for his Pastafarian theory
of creation to be allotted equal time in science classrooms alongside intelligent design and evolution. He explained that since the intelligent
design movement uses ambiguous references to an unspecified "Intelligent Designer", any conceivable entity may fulfill that role, even a Flying
Spaghetti Monster. Henderson proposed many Pastafarian tenets in reaction to common arguments by proponents of intelligent design. These "canonical
beliefs" are presented by Henderson in his letter to the Kansas State Board of Education, the Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster,
and on Henderson's web site, where he is described as a prophet. They tend to satirize creationism. The central belief is that an invisible and
undetectable Flying Spaghetti Monster created the universe "after drinking heavily". According to these beliefs, the Monster's intoxication
was the cause for a flawed Earth. Furthermore, according to Pastafarianism, all "evidence" for evolution was planted by the Flying
Spaghetti Monster in an effort to test Pastafarians' faith-parodying certain biblical literalists. When scientific measurements such as radiocarbon
dating are taken, the Flying Spaghetti Monsteris there changing the results with His Noodly Appendage. The Pastafarian belief
of Heaven contains a beer volcano and a stripper factory. The Pastafarian Hell is similar, except that the beer is stale and the strippers
have sexually transmitted diseases. Pastafarians' beliefs extend into religious ceremony. Pastafarians celebrate every Friday
as a holy day. Prayers are concluded with a final declaration of affirmation, R'amen; the term is a parodic portmanteau of the Semitic
term Amen and the Japanese noodle dish, ramen. After Henderson published the letter on his website, it rapidly became an internet
phenomenon and a symbol for the case against intelligent design in public schools. Also see Wikipedia

While the conspiratorial view is not accurate for weather, volcanoes and earthquakes, it is a realistic and accurate view of the interrelationship
of man and nations. Since the planning for most of these events was done in secret, we use the term conspiratorial history. That is;
this history is the result of plans constructed in secret, which by definition is a conspiracy."

the term can indicate "doing" anything from healthcare to interior design, from publication to electronics. The DIY ethic is loosely tied
to Punk ideology and various anticonsumerist movements, in as much as it amounts to a rejection of the idea that one must always purchase
the things that one wants or needs from others. DIY questions the uniqueness of the expert's expertise, and promotes the ability of the
ordinary person to learn to do more than he or she thought was possible.

include. The very selection of which histories to teach in a society shapes our view of how what is came to be and, in turn, what we understand as

Homœopathic Proving of LSD-25, The - LSD 25 is the most potent psychotropic
substance known to us, a mere sixth of a milligram being sufficient to induce and maintain an altered state for up to six hours. Furthermore, this
initial experience may produce flashback experiences for years to come. It was the main drug informing the youth culture of Western countries in
the sixties and seventies. This is well documented in literature, painting and music. The vernacular language of the sixties serves as an example
of the infiltration: the trip, a word coined for the LSD experience may be so far out, it is outa sight. During the homœopathic proving
many spoke of the experience as a journey, a trip." - By Misha Norland, School of Homœopathy, February 1999.
