FSM: Meatball theology or starchy savior?
If religion is the opiate of the masses, then Pastafarianism is surely their starchy diabetic coma.
According to the main text of the religion, the Flying Spaghetti Monster (also known as the Spaghedeity), created the universe with its noodly appendage after a night of heavy drinking. Those who would follow its teachings hope to reach its Heaven, full of beer volcanoes and a stripper factory (it’s hell offers similar accoutrements, except that “the beer is stale, and the strippers have VD.”). And instead of bestowing upon the world a list of commandments for righteous living, FSM offers a list of 8 “I’d rather you didn’ts”.
