pastafarian i looked it up and has a picture of rip. i do like the reason that the spegetti monster came to be. i agree 100 percent.
"I think we can all look forward to the time when these three theories are given equal time in our science classrooms across the country, and eventually the world; One third time for Intelligent Design, one third time for Flying Spaghetti Monsterism, and one third time for logical conjecture based on overwhelming observable evidence."
i can't stop laughing.
Henderson proposed many of the beliefs in reaction to common arguments by proponents of intelligent design
beliefs of Flying Spaghetti Monsterism are set forth by Henderson in the Open Letter, the Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster
, and on Henderson's web site,
where he is described as a prophet
The central belief is that there is an invisible and undetectable Flying Spaghetti Monster, who created the entire universe
"after drinking heavily."
The Monster's intoxication was supposedly the cause for a flawed Earth. All "evidence" for evolution was planted by the Flying Spaghetti Monster, in an effort to test Pastafarians' faith — a form of the Omphalos hypothesis
. When scientific measurements, such as radiocarbon dating
, are made, the Flying Spaghetti Monster "is there changing the results with His Noodly Appendage."
The Pastafarian belief of heaven
stresses that it contains a beer
volcano and a stripper
is similar, except that the beer is stale, and the strippers have STDs
Henderson uses parallel concepts from religious texts when describing the FSM, poking fun at those who literally interpret the Bible. The religious text of the Pastafarian religion is called the Loose Canon instead of the formal Canon
. In place of the Ten Commandments
, it contains the Eight I'd Really Rather You Didn'ts
The official conclusion to prayers is "RAmen", contained in certain sections of The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster
, and so on. It is a portmanteau
of the Semitic
" (used in Judaism
, and Islam
); and Ramen
, a type of noodle
. While it is typically spelled with both a capital "R" and "A", it is also acceptable to spell it with only a capital R.
