The Therian Temple (Very disturbing)

Post by Anook » Sat Sep 09, 2006 6:53 pm

There is alot to read so prepare yourself.

*Oh, and if this has already been posted, then I'm sorry. I looked until my eyes were just about ready to fall out of their sockets. I looked in the general discussion thread and the non-were related thread and I could not find it. Keep in mind that there are alot of topic and I could have easily missed it.*

I posted this because, I want to know what all of you thought and to inform those that don't know, that there something like this out there.
(Even though most if not all of you already knew that.

( I came across this website while looking for info on therianism. This site basically left me speechless for a minute.
Ok, there is something that you need to understand before you read the info below. By me posting this, by no means imply that I dislike therians or that I think they are all part of some cult. NO! I DO NOT THINK THAT!! I also don't believe that one therian represents the whole therian community.
This site that I posted at the bottom of this, does not represent every therian out there either. Ok yes, some therians may have joined this site, but not every therian believes or goes by what this site talks about, so I don't want you to start thinking that all therians out there are part of this. Ok there. Sorry, I just thought you needed to know this before you went any further.)

I found out that therians have a temple and a bible! What is their mission?
Well, their mission is to connect Therian Magicians with Others of our Kin,
to successfully Apply Therian Magic in the Real World, and to spread the ideas set forth in The Therian Bible.

To become a Member of the Therian Temple,
You must first Purchase the Therian Bible directly from them, and take the Oath of Therion and become a life time member.
The therian bible cost $10 to $20 dollars, depending on what kind of cover do you want.(hard back etc.)

Once you join, you have to follow their rules. Here is one of them, that I copyed from the site.

1. DO NOT PARTAKE IN CANNIBALISTIC ACTIVITY.
As part-Human and part-Animal, we are not to eat the flesh of either kin.
We must maintain a plant-based diet.

That means no more steak for you.

*Ok, these people who made this site up do not recruit people or children and they do not partake in animal or human sacrifices.*

Here is a link to the frequently asked questions page, where I found out that little piece of info thats stared above this. (I hope it works)

http://theriantemple.com/faq.html

and here is the actuall website address.

http://theriantemple.com/

Please tell me what you thought it.

*Again, if anyone has already posted something like this, then I am very sorry for bringing it up again. I really did look through the topic pages in the general discussion thread and the non-were related thread. There's just so many topic that I could have easily missed it*

In this group I'm in we have talked about this. Honestly, I think the Therian Temple is just a scam. I mean to get a membership you have to pay......that sounds kind of fishy to me.

NO NO NO NO NO!!!
Do not trust these guys.
They do not know about theriantropy, they're just looking to take advantage of people's hopes.
A one of my friends ordered a book just so she could let us know what it was all about, they will just take your money and never send it.
She's reporting them to the BBB so hopefully they'll be shut down in the near future.

Wouldn't that only apply to humans and one/few other species?

It does look like a cult site.

All the red and black.

I just can't believe these people made a religion out of it.

Its completely stupid. :P

It says it on the website.


Here, I copyed it from the website for ya. :D

1. ANIMALS WERE THE FIRST GODS OF THE HUMANS.
The Human World's most powerful and mystical religions either worshipped Feral Gods (i.e. Ancient Egypt),
or used animalistic/feral representations of their Gods (i.e. Heathen, Eastern Mystics).
This is true in both White Light (Right-Hand Path) and Darkside (Left-Hand Path) religions.


(They basically worship animals and possibly themselves.) :P

Well, if you are, try and see if you can get the online version of it.
I think it cost less, and they are supposed to give you a link to it.

Well, so I've read.

I was actually thinking about buying it too, to see what it was all about, but I'm not. :P

Whoa. Sick. :?

Okay, that's just strange. It's sites like THOSE that probably made my mom "worried" about therianthropy.

"Therian powers"? WTF, mate? :lol:
And no one under 18 is allowed in. Huh. Also, buy the book, or you're not one of them! NOOOOO, not suspicious at ALLLLL!

Definately an...interesting find, though, Anook.

Guys there is no book. If there was then they would at least have a picture of the cover.

And as I said above, a friend of mine tried to order one and after two months, still nothing. It's just a scam.

Oh yes, I remember.
I read her post on myspace too.
I wasn't going to buy the book anyway. I thought they had an online version that I was curious about for a sec., but I'm not anymore.
I'm saving up my money for a dog and I'm not going to waste it on some book that for one, doesn't even exist and if it did, its probably full of crap.
