Although most religions revere the principles of harmony and order in the [[Universe]]<ref>[http://www.worldreligions.psu.edu/world_religions15.htm World Religions<!-- Bot generated title -->]</ref><ref>[http://bahai-library.com/introductory/warwick/newworld.html The New World Order<!-- Bot generated title -->]</ref><ref>http://www.johnankerberg.org/Articles/_PDFArchives/new-age/NA1W1199.pdf</ref><ref>[http://www.iep.utm.edu/d/design.htm#SSH2c.i Design Arguments for the Existence of God [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]<!-- Bot generated title -->]</ref>, Discordianism can be interpreted as a belief that disharmony and [[Chaos (principle)|chaos]] are equally valid aspects of [[reality]]. The ''Principia Discordia'' often hints that Discordianism was founded as a dialectic antithesis to more popular religions based on order, although the rhetoric throughout the book describes chaos as a much more underlying impulse of the universe. This may have been done with the intention of merely "balancing out" the creative forces of order and disorder, but the focus is certainly on the more disorderly aspects of the world — at times the forces of order are even vilified.
