/e'ris/ The Greek goddess of Chaos, Discord, Confusion, and Things You Know Not
Of; her name was latinised to Discordia and she was worshiped by that name in
Rome. Not a very friendly deity in the Classical original, she was reinvented as
a more benign personification of creative anarchy starting in 1959 by the
adherents of Discordianism and has since been a semi-serious subject of
veneration in several "fringe" cultures, including hackerdom.
See Church of the SubGenius.
