What the heck is a Pastafarian?
The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster is a satirical book written by Bobby Henderson that embodies the main beliefs of the parody religion the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster or Pastafarianism.The Flying Spaghetti Monster was created by Bobby Henderson in an open letter to the Kansas State Board of Education in which he parodied the concept of intelligent design. After Henderson posted the letter on his website, it became an internet phenomenon and was featured in many large newspapers, which caught the attention of book publishers. Released in March 2006 by Villard Books, The Gospel elaborates on Pastafarian beliefs established in the open letter.

After seeing some references to it I started to look into this “religion”. After being presented as an alternative view it has really gotten some of the people and groups to take a second look at their beliefs and motivations. It was a very enlightening experience. I must say it fits my personal beliefs on religion in today’s world to a tee! Captain Mosey and the Eight “I’d Really Rather You Didn’ts” really gets you to thinking. But after reading the book i’m in!
