Robert Anton Wilson (January 18, 1932 – January 11, 2007) was a Discordian and SubGenius author who popularized Discordianism in the 1970s through his and Robert Shea's The Illuminatus! Trilogy of books, and he made everyone a Discordian Pope. He boarded the pleasure saucers in 2007, fucking Alien Sex Goddesses and smoking frop en route to Planet X.
