    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'm not sure to be honest.  I thought Mark Knowles was a cousin of the FSM, does that count?

    Ramen!

    The FSM makes as much sense as any other religion does, except it offers more proof.

    My licence is coming up for renewal so I may be wearing a colander on my license photo as well. smile

    Yes, Jesus is a regular visitor to my Beer Volcano and Stripper Factory.

    In fact, I'm partnering with him in his new promotion, where he wants to get his followers to stop preaching so much.

    Ramen.

      Your eminence, I am so blessed that you should visit this lowly forum.   I am sure to go to stripper heaven now and forever drink from the beer volcano fountain of immortality.

      Forever inebriated.

    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.

        (Just piggy backing on your comment)

          If they are praying for more destruction, they are not praying to God.

          Who are they really praying to?
          Any guesses?
          Anyone . . . anyone?

            Hmm...well all the "evil" is blamed on the Devil/Satan.. so I wonder indeed.

    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.

    This story is picking up some traction.  This morning I heard it reported on the Bob and Tom show, a nationally syndicated morning drive program in the U.S.

    Now millions of commuters can be brainwashed and end up burning in Hell for all eternity.

    The Christian God's justice is swift and merciful.

          Alternatively, you might go to the spaghetti monster profile.  It has an account here (couple of years old) and has written several inspirational hubs.

              Question - does the HP building have a steeple?  Is it covered in pasta? 

              It could be significant...
