true faith

Flying Spaghetti Monsterism is amusing me beyond all reason. I had heard about it before, but a few days ago I was doing some research for work (really) and came across James Randi's page on the phenomenon. I don't know why the whole thing strikes me as so funny. Perhaps it's the ridiculousness of the image, or the outrage with which the parody has been greeted by the fundies, or the amusement of the media. Whatever the reason, it's bringing me a great deal of merriment.

Well, if one must follow a religion, why not choose one that makes you laugh? Anything that inspires "Der Spiegel" to publish an article entitled "Mein Gott! Ein Nudelmonster!" has to be a force for good in the world. Plus, followers of FSM got a five-day weekend last week. Or would have, were it not for the depth of religious discrimination in this country. For shame. If you wish to learn more about His Noodleyness, Boing Boing has an extensive list of links.
