I was talking to god on the internet, and I ended up asking about the White Cult.
quote:
Me:What do you think about the White Cult?
God:
The opposite of black Cult.
What is this black cult? Since they are the opposite of the White Cult, they must be against everything we stand for. Are they ruled by a Richard Black, who is unchanging and makes extremely popular software? We must find out more before this Richard Black and his followers decide to reveal themselves, and it is too late.

Some say Richard Black is another incarnation of Richard White. Others say he is but a heretic, a lowly member of the White Cult who left and founded his own religion, creating a schism. All that is known for sure is that nothing can be known about this cult, because its existence is mutually exclusive with that of the White Cult. Thus, in any given universe, if the Richard White Cult exists, the Richard Black Cult does not. Being omniscient, God knows that.

iGod (who you were talking to) does not though. He is a disciple of Richard Black (who doesn't exist, see above), and is trying to fool you. Don't fall for him.

I hope I made this clear. :)

They can't coexist in a single universe, but might it be possible that there is some other universe where Black exists and White doesn't? In fact, there might even be a good number of such universes. This seems increasingly likely, especially since rumors already exist about Black, and the presence of a disciple (iGod).
So, if we accept the possibility of other universes where Black exists (possibly as a horribly inverted version of White, or an antimatter one) what would the consequences be? They would probably never go to the same universe, as that would destroy them both, and possibly the entire universe, although you can't ignore that as a possibility.(Perhaps there is a univese with two Blacks, and one would force the other into our universe. If the universe isn't destroyed, Black could rule it from his universe)
However, they would be able to send over other things to attack us, such as thier twisted version of needle/ferrets, and whatever other sinister weapons they employ.
There might be millions of universes with Black instead of White,just a few, one, or possibly even none, but if Black does exist somewhere, it would not be a good idea to be unprepared.

Edit: I was interrupted before I could finish.

Richard Black must have better credentials if he works at Microsoft. And shows his picture publicly. And he is verifiably alive.

Actually, if you think about it, a group of his fans would more appropriately called a fan club than a cult.

God was right, whattaya know. :)

This is serious. I was just thinking, if there's also a Richard black, then there maybe also is a Richard yellow, or a Richard.... We must get in defensive positions, bring out the needle/ferret (if that's alright with the creator) and scissor/chickens (alias PTC's) bombs! We must wipe out this threat!

Alway wanted to say that :)

The Supreme Council for the White Revolution and Sunday bruch committee have instructed me via implants to assure fellow Cultists that the rumors of Richard Black are false and malicious slanders designed to separate them from the true path of Needle/Ferret and Ferret/Needle-dom.

Richard Black, as his name implies, represents the absence of light. Richard White (or Ricardo Blanco, as he is known in Spain), is the presence of ALL light. So the reverse universe hypothesis of Richard Black presupposes his existence, which, as can be seen by my first and second sentence, is untrue. Richard Black can only exist if nothing exists, which would immediately annihilate him. The resulting explosion would then flood the world with light, or "White", and restore the Cult order.

In fact, the members of the Supreme Council of Theology and Animal Testing have postulated that the event known popularly as "the Big Bang" was actually just Richard Black, up to his old usual tricks, annihilating himself.

That's quite a relief, although that means I still can't succesfully test my PTC bombs.

Absence of light does not indicate absence of existence. His universe could be devoid of visible light without also bieng devoid of matter. However, that is not even neccisary, as his universe isn't what is black, just him. He might absorb all light and reflect none, thus making him pitch black. He could even be devoid of light in the sense that none reaches him, making him appear bright because of the reflected light.And this is just assuming that black is his state of light, and not a synonym for dark, evil, bleak, or one of the many other things black can mean that are independant of light.

I'm afraid we've missed the boat, friends. The leader/object of the Black Cult must be not Richard Black, but ______ Black, where ______ denotes whatever first name is the opposite of Richard.

Few kids get named Anti-richard, so this is not an easy thing to figure out. It's a quest-for-true-name problem reminiscent of Glen Cook's original Black Company trilogy.

Doh!

Drahcir is apparently a common name in the world of internet monikers, and take a look at http://members.tripod.com/~Drahcir/! Drahcir and darkness. I rest my case.

—Alorael, who isn't sure how Drahcir Etihw relates to Richard Black.

You'll notice that while the White cult and the black cult are opposites they probably aren't complete opposites. After all, they're both cults, and that implies at least some similarity.

This is all blasphemy and I condemn any further talk of Richard Black. He is nothing of concern. None should speak of him without Icshi's direct approval.

I am aware. "Richard" is just what we shall call Mr Black for now, since we do not wish to blow up this universe and replace it by an utterly rubbish one by uttering his true name (even if we knew it).

However, there is a theory which states that this has already happened some time in the past.

Incidentally, the English pronounciation of "vice" corresponds to the German word for "white" ("weiß"). I smell conspiracy.

That's funny - I smell coffee. Of course, I am in the office.

I don't think we should be dissuaded by the "vice-white" pronunciation connection. Besides, if following RW is bad, then I don't want to be good.

I hereby declare that all taking of coffee that is "black" to be un-White, and therefore, un-Cool. Coffee is hot, after all, except when Stug, that half-mad ferret of a man forgets to leave the coffee pot on! Thanks a lot! We LOVE drinking uncarbonated cold water without butter.

Yes, the only coffees acceptable now are flat-whites... and maybe lattes.

But by drinking the black coffee, do we not symbolically destroy the blackness? Or something? There's gotta be some kind of dispensation available, here. Putting milk in espresso is an abominable crime even by the unspeakable standards of the order.

I doubt the Richards care much what kind of coffee you drink. Only your interaction with Spiderweb and Chromite and, um, Microsoft.

Richard Black is merely one of the infinite prismatic aspects of Richard White. There is no cause for alarm. There is no need to panic.

Everything is under control. Everything is as it should be. You are all quite, quite safe.

Do not be afraid. He's not going to hurt you.
