The Flying Spaghetti Monster (FSM) was created to be a god of the Church of The Flying Spaghetti Monster; and his disciples are called “Pastafarians”. In 2005, a Kansas School Board tried to change teaching curriculum and decided to teach ‘Intelligent Design’ in conjunction to evolution in science classes. Intelligent Design is defined, "certain features of the universe and of living things are best explained by an intelligent cause” In response, a student (Bobby Henderson, a 24 year old Oregon State University Physics major) wrote an open letter to the school board about the Flying Spaghetti Monster, and requested that it’s “Noodly Appendages” be taught alongside evolution and intelligent design.
It has been said that the Flying Spaghetti Monster created the universe after drinking heavily. In result, his intoxication is the reason why the earth is so flawed. Pastafarian beliefs suggest the FSM’s first disciples were pirates, peace loving explorers, spreading their good will. Their theories have caused them to believe that as the number of pirates decreased, the global temperature increased, causing global warming and natural disasters such as earthquakes, and hurricanes. Pastafarians celebrate on Fridays, which is their Holidays (Holy-days). Prayers end with “Ramen” (in contrast to “Amen”) and their heaven (The Great Pasta Bowl) consists of a stripper factory and a beer volcano. Their hell (The Freezer of Doom), is the same as heaven but the beer is stale and the strippers have STD’s.
Before researching this pseudoscience theory, I thought it was the most ridiculous thing I had ever heard. After reading this pseudoscience, I was right, it was the most ridiculous thing I had ever heard. Some of its beliefs seem rather dark, which may cause it to be offensive to some people, but I am able to find some humor in it.
