Haredi or Charedi/Chareidi Judaism is the most conservative form of Orthodox Judaism, often referred to as ultra-Orthodox.
Haredi Jews, like other Orthodox Jews, consider their belief system and religious practices to extend in an unbroken chain back to Moses and the giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai. As a result, they regard non-Orthodox, and to an extent Modern Orthodox, streams of Judaism to be deviations from authentic Judaism. Haredi Judaism comprises a diversity of spiritual and cultural orientations, generally divided into Hasidic and Lithuanian-Yeshiva streams from Eastern Europe, and Oriental Sephardic Haredim. Its historical rejection of Jewish secularism distinguishes it from Western European-derived Modern Orthodox Judaism.
The word Ḥaredi (חֲרֵדִי), which originally was simply the Hebrew translation of Orthodox.

I don't follow any religion and I don't believe in any sort of God. I think of all the people killed in the name of "God" over the thousands of years and just shake my head. It disturbs me how everybody thinks their god is the true god and everybody else is wrong and damned. It disturbs me how close minded and ignorant religious people can be.
Now my belief system is :
- Just to live my life as a good person the best I can.
- Be kind and respectful to everyone you meet in life. I treat everybody the way I would like to be treated.
- Just to generally be positive and peaceful with no intentions of harm to anyone and to try to help anybody the best I can.
- I think that if you live a positive life as a good person then hopefully it all comes back to you.
The thing is, I have my own belief about religion, but I don't put anyone else down for their own religious beliefs, or try to put anyone down for it or try to tell them they're wrong because their not! That's the thing, we are free to believe in whatever god we want and I have no right what so ever to tell anybody I think they're wrong or stupid in believing. I like to think of myself as a humble man and I don't think I am better than anybody else. Also there is nothing wrong with having faith in something. Three of my closest best friends is a Muslim, a Catholic and a Christian and we all get a long just fine.edit on 11/17/2010 by TopherWayne because: (no reason given)edit on 11/17/2010 by TopherWayne because: (no reason given)
the worship of Eris (also known as Discordia), the Greco-Roman goddess of strife. It was founded circa 1958–1959 by Gregory Hill, under the pseudonym Malaclypse the Younger, with the publication of its principal text, the Principia Discordia.
The Original Snub is the Discordian name for the events preceding the Judgment of Paris, although more focus is put on the actions of Eris. Zeus believes that Eris is a troublemaker, so he does not invite her to Peleus and Thetis's wedding.
This is “The Doctrine of the Original Snub”. Having been snubbed, Eris creates a golden apple with the word kallisti (Ancient Greek: καλλίστῃ, to the prettiest one) inscribed in it. This, the Apple of Discord, is a notable symbol in Discordianism for its inclusion in the Holy Chao. The apple is traditionally described as being made of gold
When the female wedding guests disagree about who the apple is meant for, Zeus decides to leave the decision to Paris of Troy. Aphrodite bribes Paris, leading to the Trojan War, which “is said to be The First War among men.”
