It's catching on. How long will it take to hit mainstream?
'Austrian "Pastafarian" has been issued with a driving licence that shows him wearing a colander on his head after he finally won the right to wear the kitchen implement in the photo on the grounds of religious freedom.
In a post on his blog, Niko Alm said he received his licence yesterday after a psychologist passed him fit to drive after three years of trying.
"Today I was able to get my new driving license, and in it you can clearly see that I'm wearing a colander on my head to demonstrate my allegiance to the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster," Mr Alm wrote, describing himself as an entrepreneur and activist against church privileges.
The spaghetti church was founded in 2005 to protest against intelligent design theory being taught in school biology classes in the US.
Since then the church has continued to campaign against religion using humour, attracting followers from around the world.
Pastafarians believe the world was created by the Flying Spaghetti Monster, who was inebriated at the time, resulting in its flawed design.
Followers also believe there is a beer volcano and stripper factory in heaven.
I was reading the "hate mail" on the FSM webpage...WOW!!! for people that claimed to be "christian" there was some pretty strong vulgar type language used to insult. And then the ever popular "you are going straight to hell and I am praying for you" added as an extra bonus.
The late, great George Carlin once said, "We pray to God to destroy our enemies. Our enemies pray to God to destroy us. Somewhere along the line somebody's wasting their time. Could it be . . . eveyone?"
Man destroys enough. I am curious why they would need a god to impart even more destruction. There has been alot of good and bad done under the guise of "gods will". But, have you ever heard that one bad thing will undermine all the good you have ever done. Or the phrase "one bad apple destroys the bushel". Whenever something is done that is viewed as wrong and then is associated to God, Christians, Muslims, white, black, man or women, it is then preceived that everything associated to that is bad. At least, until something else takes the limelight. Or until enough good is done to fade the memory of the bad.
if you believe in the god as shown in the bible then death and destruction is probably the right way to go, if you are praying for peace and love chances are you have been deceived by satan and God is pissed at you.
Ok! How many of you would like to see these two seemingly opposing (or are they one?) battle it out for supremacy. Who do you think would win? Personally, I think the FSM would kick the crap out of the...
