Hello all converts! I have decided to post this thread to enlighten you all about the FSM(Flying Spaghetti Monster)! You can learn all about the FSM here: http://www.venganza.org. For now, I'll just highlight a few key points about Pastafarism. -FSMism is scientifically based. For example, this chart shows that Global warming has increased while the number of Pirates has decreased. -Pirates are the FSM's chosen race. Instead of creating life in His own image, He created life in His IDEAL image. -FSMism communion is a heaping plate of spaghetti and meatballs. -The proper FSMism dress is Traditional pirate garb. -The Pastafarian holy day is Friday. -FSM Heaven contains a Beer Volcano and a Stripper Factory. -Shorter people are those most touched by His noodly appendage. -Pastafarians don't accept Dogma. If we are proved wrong, we will accept it. So, I hope you all will be as enlightened as I have been. ^_^ RAmen.
