Dudeism is essentially a modernized version of Taoism which uses the film The Big Lebowski as its primary liturgical vehicle. You can visit Dudeism (The Church of the Latter-Day Dude) here.
While its followers content that Dudeism has existed since the dawn of civilization in one form or another, Dudeism was coined and founded in 2005 by American journalist Oliver Benjamin. As of March 2019 the Church of the Latter-Day Dude (its official name) has ordained over 500,000 “Dudeist Priests” all over the world.
Dudeists follow Daoist and Epicurean principles, trying to avoid unnecessary worry and effort and going with life’s flow. More about Dudeist philosophy can be found on its website: www.dudeism.com/whatisdudeism
