The Ori and another group of beings called the Alterans (Later known as the Ancients), lived once in harmony and peace.
The Ori didn’t like what the Alterans were doing, investing their time and effort into science and reason to ascend, the Ori wanted power and wealth.
Both the Ori and the Ancients ascended after a certain period of time, but the Ori were still not pleased with the Ancients so they tried to wipe them out.
The Ancients created the humans in the milky way galaxy, shielding them from the Ori, but when the Ori finally reached the Milky Way galaxy they did not stop them from converting those who wanted to follow the path of Origin as they called it, or even stop them when they eliminated those who wouldn’t follow blindly to their religion. The Ancients are a remote god, just like Lilla explains in her book The Stillborn God.
This is their bible, like most religions there is a text to what they believe in. They use it to depict the Ori’s path to enlightenment and their ultimate path to ascension.
What the Priors or the other followers of the Ori don’t know though is that the book doesn’t actually explain the right path to ascension because the Ori want to keep their powers to themselves, the followers will never reach that higher level of existence.
One part of their belief system is that the Ori make their followers blind, not in the literal sense but figuratively, not allowing them to fully understand the powers that they possess and that they want it all to themselves.
Another belief held by the Ori is that those who follow the Ori are blessed with knowledge, those who fail to see the path of the Ori must be eliminated.
The last belief that is held would have to be ascension, that anyone can ascend into a higher being that can live basically forever. The Ori try to make it sound like becoming an ascended being is the only reason for living and that this should be your only goal, along with worshiping the Ori.
