The good news is that he'll probably abandon it in a couple of weeks.

I just don't understand what the website is supposed to be, aside from him being able to extend his tweets beyond the number-of-characters restriction. It's like Deep Thoughts by Jack Handy or something. Because, you know, when I need spiritual guidance I turn to rockstars...

How is this supposed to be an open discussion if it asks for formal submissions. I don't see a comments option. This doesn't sound like discussion, it sounds like soapboxing.

That said, I bookmarked it...

I think Billy needs a subscription service for this new cult.

about the site. these seems like a natural progression. He started out with a bunch of spiritual related tweets, and now he goes onto a wordpress based website to write longer articles.

"I know God must absolutely love me BECAUSE He has steered me away from the tweet deck. Yay!"

"AND He hath forbideth me from using the word 'tweet', unless it is in reference to not using it."

if you think this is some sort of prank you might have stopped following him sometime in 1997.
This seems completely like the Billy Corgan of 2009

That doesn't come first. First it's 'love bombing' to get you sucked in. Later on it's the money, sexual abuse and human sacrifices.

Also Sky Saxon's Ya Wa whatever thing he was in was definitely a cult. So this is a natural progression I guess. But I still feel like I'm in Bizzaro World.

I don't think there's anything wrong with having faith in any particular deity but I always thought it should also be a private matter, but that's just me.

And I would never, ever, hitch the wagon of my eternal soul to a website run by Billy Corgan. That is a Very. Bad. Idea. Cosmically speaking, that is. Won't get you much points with St. Peter at the Pearly Gates, that's for darn sure.

Also, just skimming over his text, it has a very new-age-y, non-denominational unspecific vibe to it which gives me the hebbie jebbies. Billy Corgan's Scientology? Jesus Tapdancin' Christ, no thank you.

I could actually get behind that if that was the apex of Corgan's religion.

It's the mindset you go into them with. Certainly this is a product of drugs or cult programming

Or possibly both

For what it's worth if Billy is the new Jesus then maybe we're all prophets

To me it's redolent of the sort of vague spirituality that many alternative medicine practitioners espouse, I suppose to try to legitimize all these different practices from incompatible cultures by suggesting they're all supported by some common framework

They refuse to quantify anything more than the most basic ideasówell, you know, there's, like, a God or "God" or some, you know, energy, some universal energy, you know, like everything is God and God just like flows through all of us, that'll be $300 for the reiki session I just performed over the phone with you
