Please do not be alarmed because we come from a Catholic university. We are merely conducting a study on the Church of The Flying Spaghetti Monster for our final requirement in our Sociology and Anthropology course, thus we have no intentions of scorning and misrepresenting Pastafarians. We would like to ask you guys to introduce yourself (optional) and answer these questions we believe would be of utmost help in our study on the Church of The Flying Spaghetti Monster: Why did you decide to follow Pastafarianism? What Pastafarian beliefs do you uphold if any? Are you a member of another religious group? There is no need for formality in your replies, thus you may even use Pirate Speak if you wish to.

Many thanks! ~Jus

Hi. I'm ET.

In support of the initial premise put forth by Bobby Hebderson, to wit, that it is every bit as valid to include the FSM version of intelligent design in a science classroom as it is to include that of any other religion. Turtles all the way down.

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

A fundamentalist managed to get a job as a teacher in my son's school, and started telling the kids that they did not *have* to believe what was being taught in the science classroom, that other interpretations were available, other versions like Intelligent Design...

We disagreed. The teacher was sacked, and a couple of jobs later (after behaving the same way in other schools) was de-registered and can no longer practise. My son graduated with a Masters in Chemistry earlier this month.

My name is Old Git elsewhere; I also sometimes sign myself Captain Spork, Pope Alfred or Griblet.

I joined up because its such a superb and imaginative attack on religious thinking in general as well as a clever spoof on the Kansas State Board of Education's decision to permit the teaching of intelligent design as an alternative to evolution in public school science classes.

Beliefs? No, thank you. And no other religion except reverence of the Invisible Pink Unicorn (bless Her Holy Hooves).

Name DaveL

Why did you decide to follow Pastafarianism?

Why not? Science in the classroom was being dumbed down to accommodate religious beliefs. The Law of Dumbass states 'Science for the classroom and church for Sundays, but never the twain shall meet.' The internet was the perfect place to counter Intelligent Design, plus Bobby's letter was the perfect call to arms for others to start a movement. Oh, I was also confronted by a fundamentalist at work, and found comic relief here.

What Pastafarian beliefs do you uphold if any?
Beer
Wenches
Writing Loose Canon scriptures and pirate lad magazines
Pirate Speak yes and still desperately trying to learn land lubber

Are you a member of another religious group?
Nope (although Church of the Latter Day Dude could win me over, particularly if Roy convinces me to go bowling with him)

Captain Itchy Pirate (yeah, I know, my profile doesn't say "captain", it was a recent self-promotion)

jajajejejuju123 wrote:Why did you decide to follow Pastafarianism?


At first, I thought Pastafarianism was a complete joke dreamed up as a way of combatting Intelligent Design in public schools. I had a few odd experiences over the past few years that have convinced me that, far from being a joke, there may be some truth to Pastafarianism. Maybe I just imagined what I experienced, maybe I didn't, though I am convinced well enough to accept Pastafarianism as my religion.


jajajejejuju123 wrote:What Pastafarian beliefs do you uphold if any?


A belief in a strange and seemingly lazy deity that presents himself to us in the form resembling one of my two favorite foods (why couldn't he have been the Flying Pizza Monster?!)

Lazy Fridays

Tolerance for others

The eternal offer of the FSM for even the worst of the sinners to earn their way to a better afterlife if they are truly remorseful for their sins

jajajejejuju123 wrote:Are you a member of another religious group?


No, though I do believe Pastafarianism to be compatible with most other religions -- it's just a matter of how literal you want to be in the beliefs you accept from Pastafarianism and the beliefs you accept from the other religion.

Pastafarianism seems the most logical and moral of the choices of religions.

jajajejejuju123 wrote:What Pastafarian beliefs do you uphold if any?

We don't have set beliefs- we have flimsy moral standards.

jajajejejuju123 wrote:Are you a member of another religious group?

No.
