With millions, if not thousands, of devout worshipers, the Church of the FSM is widely considered a legitimate religion, even by its opponents – mostly fundamentalist Christians, who have accepted that our God has larger balls than theirs.
I do not know if I want to become a follower, but he is one cool flying god! Plus their followers are all pirates and Vikings!
How do Pastafarians, the name of followers of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, believe our world was created? They believe the Flying Spaghetti Monster created the world much as it exists today, but for reasons unknown made it appear that the universe is billions of years old (instead of thousands) and that life evolved into its current state (rather than created in its current form). Every time a researcher carries out an experiment that appears to confirm one of these “scientific theories” supporting an old earth and evolution they can be sure that the FSM is there, modifying the data with his Noodly Appendage. They don’t know why He does this but they believe He does, that is their Faith.
Their prophet is Bobby. His occupation when not engaged as prophet of FSM is that of a Hobo. Hobo is one who travels for work. A tramp is one who travels and never works. Also sometimes he is a nerd working on or around computers. Sometimes he can be found writing things for money. You can probably hire him to write something or do computer nerd work for you, probably cheap.
I live in Salem and for me it is easy to believe in tentacle like gods. You know the Flying Spaghetti Monster's cousin was born here, Cthulhu.
