Pilgrimage Sites: place, site, that causes admirers of a certain well-known personality, lovers of a certain thing to visitA pilgrimage is a journey or search of moral or spiritual significance. Typically, it is a journey to a shrine or other location of importance to a person's beliefs and faith, although sometimes it can be a metaphorical journey into someone's own beliefs.
the tomb of the star became a place of pilgrimage.
Discordic pilgrimage sites are places where discordians believe they have a special effect on their development. The places do not necessarily have to exist or be accessible in real life. A pilgrimage therefore also means much more exploring the place, evaluating information, watching a film and at the end drawing a deeper insight for oneself. Once you have gained this knowledge, it is fair to say that you have made a successful pilgrimage.
Of course, there are also those discordiers who prefer to travel through all the places listed as pilgrimage sites. Most of them, however, will need a whole life or two.
Discordic pilgrimage sites thus correspond approximately to the tradition of the discordic saints and can also be combined with them.
Idea and origin
The idea for discordic pilgrimage sites came from a study of the Principa Discordier which was carried out backwards at full moon. There are several texts referring to the places of pilgrimage, such as the Starfish Papers (which probably fixed the basic idea) and the text of the holy shrine of the fNorth (who further cemented the basic idea).

Pilgrimage sites of discordanism.
As every believing discordian should know, for us bowling lanes are sacred pilgrimage sites. The revelation that led to the creation of the Principia was received there. Hot dog stalls are also very popular as pilgrims' places and especially on Fridays are very popular for discordians because mothers Eris highest self breastfed their grief with the delicious rolls from this shrine. The tomb of Emporer Joshua Norton is generally considered to be a high place of pilgrimage of discordanism. Recently, a manuscript (known as the Starfish paper) appeared in the company, suggesting that there was a place in ancient Mesopotamia where there was a shrine to honor our goddess and where the first symbolic Starfish was born. However, this shrine seems to be lost for us because its location is still unknown to this day. Nedlim the Skeptiker propagated once that also the Oregon Vortex is a holy pilgrimage place that every faithful discordant should have visited at least once in a lifetime. Here the pure chaos meets the order and distorts the "reality" up to the unrecognizable. Furthermore, followers of the Legion indicated that a holy shrine should also exist in the border area to the country west of the east. In addition, a very strange manuscript has recently appeared, testifying to a place commonly known as the "Lost Highway Hotel". However, this place also seems to have disappeared. It is rumored, however, that it can be found by those who want to find it (maybe you need the magic artifact known as the Magic 8 Ball. However, this is only cool speculation).

The holy shrine of the fNorth
A lost shrine of the discordians whose position at least Bwana Honolulu and Bratislav Metulevskie is known.
OK, speaking of sacred places.... when I was a zombie hunter in the north, I found a small shrine after a fight against the remains of a zombie army (my predecessor had struck down his legendary 30-metre zombie there before he disappeared without a trace). This shrine was guarded by a holy man, called the ancestor's ancestor, but speaking of himself only as the Rootsman. In this shrine - in addition to the last Dr. Eberhard antibody bomb of my predecessor to put an end to the undead plague - I also found some unordered, sacred writings left there by Bratislav Metulevskie himself, which had been waiting for me. The writings may no longer be there and the holy place is subject to constant change ("Design, transformation, the eternal sense of eternal entertainment. ), but nonetheless, this place is sacred - only because of its strict guarding and constant danger (this place is close to a gate to the underworld and it is always haunted by undead hordes) it is not necessarily suitable as a place of pilgrimage.
Tradition (from Latin tradere "handing down" or "traditional" handing over, delivery, handing down ") refers to the passing on (the tradere).
The postcard tradition is a relatively new discordic tradition.
It is basically all about sending each other especially great pilgrimage places postcards, hoping to receive a special postcard of a pilgrimage place for your collection.
