Entomology: the antithesis of dogma. Catma is to dogma, as a fickel cat is to a loyal dog.

1. A catma is a belief espoused by a relgion which must be understood by all members of that religion. Although it must be understood, it does not have to be accepted as truth because proof of the catma may not yet exist or be accepted, or that proof requires postulates that the adherant to the religion may not presently accept.
Karma is a catma to Hinduism.

A'la's perfection and omnicence is a catma to Islam. (It is not a dogma becuase Islam has no central hierarchal structure to enforce any dogmas.)

That all religions are one is a catma to Baha'i.

Catma is the opposite of dogma. Dogmas are absolute beliefs that are supposed to be completely true all the time, Catmas are relativistic meta-beliefs.

The central Discordian catma is: "All affirmations are true in some sense, false in some sense, meaningless in some sense, true and false in some sense, true and meaningless in some sense, false and meaningless in some sense, and true and false and meaningless in some sense."

This is true in some sense. What matters, however, is not whether things are true in some sense, but how far fetched that sense is.

DISCORDIAN CATMAS
Think For Yourself.
Convictions Cause Convicts.
The Conclusion You Jump To May Be Your Own.
The Pun is Mightier then the Sword.
Truth: If its not one thing its another.
Reality: It all depends on how you look at it.
The Enlightened take things Lightly.
No Two Equals are the Same.
Tis an ill wind that blows no minds.
Is the thought of a Unicorn a Real Thought?
Curb Your Dogma.
Discordians don't have dogmas, which are absolute beliefs; we have catmas which are relative meta-beliefs. And the central Discordian catma is- any affirmation is true in some sense, false in some sense, meaningless in some sense, true and false in some sense, true and meaningless in some sense, false and meaningless in some sense, and true and false and meaningless in some sense. And if you repeat this 666 times, you will achieve supreme enlightenment -- IN SOME SENSE!
