The Official Pastfarian Discussion Thread

The one true religion




Place of worship

The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, while having existed in secrecy for hundreds of years, only recently came into the mainstream when this letter was published in May 2005.

With millions, if not thousands, of devout worshippers, the Church of the FSM is widely considered a legitimate religion, even by its opponents - mostly fundamentalist Christians, who have accepted that our God has larger balls than theirs.



After the obvious flaming that has begun in this thread, I have posted the 8 "I really rather you didn't"s in an effort to keep the peace


Some claim that the church is purely a thought experiment, satire, illustrating that Intelligent Design is not science, but rather a pseudoscience manufactured by Christians to push Creationism into public schools. These people are mistaken. The Church of FSM is real, totally legit, and backed by hard science. Anything that comes across as humor or satire is purely coincidental.


Quote:

The Eight "I'd Really Rather You Didn'ts"

1. I'd Really Rather You Didn't Act Like a Sanctimonious Holier-Than-Thou *** When Describing My Noodly Goodness. If Some People Don't Believe In Me, That's Okay. Really, I'm Not That Vain. Besides, This Isn't About Them So Don't Change The Subject.
2. I'd Really Rather You Didn't Use My Existence As A Means To Oppress, Subjugate, Punish, Eviscerate, And/Or, You Know, Be Mean To Others. I Don't Require Sacrifices, And Purity Is For Drinking Water, Not People.
3. I'd Really Rather You Didn't Judge People For The Way They Look, Or How They Dress, Or The Way They Talk, Or, Well, Just Play Nice, Okay? Oh, And Get This In Your Thick Heads: Woman = Person. Man = Person. Samey - Samey. One Is Not Better Than The Other, Unless We're Talking About Fashion And I'm Sorry, But I Gave That To Women And Some Guys Who Know The Difference Between Teal and Fuchsia.
4. I'd Really Rather You Didn't Indulge In Conduct That Offends Yourself, Or Your Willing, Consenting Partner Of Legal Age AND Mental Maturity. As For Anyone Who Might Object, I Think The Expression Is Go F*** Yourself, Unless They Find That Offensive In Which Case They Can Turn Off the TV For Once And Go For A Walk For A Change.
5. I'd Really Rather You Didn't Challenge The Bigoted, Misogynist, Hateful Ideas Of Others On An Empty Stomach. Eat, Then Go After The B*******.
6. I'd Really Rather You Didn't Build Multimillion-Dollar Churches/Temples/Mosques/Shrines To My Noodly Goodness When The Money Could Be Better Spent (Take Your Pick):

1. Ending Poverty
2. Curing Diseases
3. Living In Peace, Loving With Passion, And Lowering The Cost Of Cable
I Might be a Complex-Carbohydrate Omniscient Being, But I Enjoy The Simple Things In Life. I Ought To Know. I AM the Creator.

7. I'd Really Rather You Didn't Go Around Telling People I Talk To You. You're Not That Interesting. Get Over Yourself. And I Told You To Love Your Fellow Man, Can't You Take A Hint?
8. I'd Really Rather You Didn't Do Unto Others As You Would Have Them Do Unto You If You Are Into, Um, Stuff That Uses A Lot of Leather/Lubricant/Las Vegas. If the Other Person Is Into It, However (Pursuant To #4), Then Have At It, Take Pictures, And For The Love Of Mike, Wear a CONDOM! Honestly, It's A Piece of Rubber. If I Didn't Want It To Feel Good When You Did It I Would Have Added Spikes, Or Something.

Why would you do that? FSM provokes a great deal of good religious discussion.

I still need to get me the the Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

I'm debating to start a church in Phoenix where we worship is noodliness in proper pirate attire and eat Spaghetti, and drink beer.
As long as it's non-profit or no money is involved, it should work just fine. I would set up youth groups and saturday night dances.

Hey, when did we sprout a religion forum?

Pastafarianism makes an awful lot of sense when you look at it. Not to mention that the "Eight I'd Really Rather You Didn'ts" are more amusing than some other divine forms of guidance.

Edit - aw, crap... if I'm getting reports in here, then that means.........

Ive only posted the picture in this OFFICIAL THREAD, and in one other.

Edit, and that other reference was already edited and appoligized for, i posted that pic first, then realized that we need an official thread

In that case, I deleted my previous posts. I wouldn't consider this one thread spam.

In one thread, the subject at hand was "What religion are you?"
Reasonable reponse was "Pastafarian."
Another thread, he posted a picture of "His God" , which was FSM.
I fail to see spam.

A lot of people see this religion as a serious one and see the fact that this religion has no enemies as a plus. I would be one, but I try not to define God. Do you guys feel serious about this religion, or are just mocking/being sarcastic.

A tolerant religion is fine by me, but I'm just supporting these followers, I'm not just yet a true believer.
