Pastafarianism: Flying Spaghetti Monster cult grows

Two months ago, Cory was among the first to blog about "Flying Spaghetti Monster" -- the overlord of a new parody religion created to protest a Kansas State Board of Education decision allowing so-called Intelligent Design to be taught in science classes.

The FSM cult now has a Wikipedia entry, with details that indicate that followers of His Noodliness -- Pastafarians -- are growing in number, like so many meatballs accumulating on a plate of linguini. A few of the facts I learned:

Codes of conduct:
# Prayers are ended with the word RAmen rather than Amen.

Benefits of conversion:
# Like the great noodles they worship, Flying Spaghetti Monsterists have flimsy moral standards.
# Promise of a stripper factory and a beer volcano in Heaven.

A rival faction, based on SPAM (Spaghetti & Pulsar Activating Meatballs), has formed and is calling for a Holy War against FSM. SPAMation claims to have the One True Letter to the Kansas School Board.

So, here's a question. If some people see Jesus in a tortilla, or the Virgin Mary on a grilled cheese sandwich, where does the Flying Spaghetti Monster show up to avoid redundancy?

  1. If you are looking for evidence of the great Flying Spaghetti Monsters existence as in the grilled cheese or the tortilla, just check out the tibetan painting showed at the churches homepage!

  2. Parody? The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster is real and I garrentee you completely serious! R’Amen!

  3. Cory could not have been among the first to blog about it 2 months ago.

    I’ve had a FSM on my car for at least 2 years.

    FYI – I’m in it for the Beer Volcanoes, and to stop global warming, of course. Yarrrr.
