Pastafarianism, a wonderful religion created by Bobby Henderson in 2005 under the control of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. You can try to prove me wrong but you will fail.

This is absurd! They take the name of our good god and make a parody out of it! Every pastafarism will BURN in hell!

According to to your statement of us making a parody of your religion, which is presumably Christianity, is false as this religion have been taken into many countries such as U.S.A and Canada and that many people practice this religion. One day a man walked into a D.M.V. to get his drivers licence and he had a strainer on his head, he was confronted and was told to off. After many minutes of fighting he won the right to wear the strainer on his head for religious reasons, http://www.telegraph.co.uk.... How do they take the name of your God if our religion is almost completely different than yours, the only similarities are that both followers go to heaven which is the case of many other religions. This religion can also stand on it's own as it has it's own bible and their own churches. Other reasons why this is a legit religion is that they have their own religions. I have even takes a faceoff if it should be a religion and 15 out of the 17 (88%) said that it was http://www.debate.org....

Since that was the only thing that you can come back with, than I think we could agree that I won and that Pastafarism is a religion.

I meant exactly what I said- they have lots of ego and no logic.
Ego- "we all have IQs a hundred points higher than any of yours"
Logic- "I can prove your god isn't real because of the flying spaghetti monster"

The "logic" is simple, just straw man everything like a good atheist- or shall I say, Pastafarian.

Honestly I really don't understand why someone would love God so much and not capitalize His name. And then blow up on someone... Just saying.

If you're a proud Pastafarian, raise your hand so I see the insane side of DDO.

"lots of ego and no logic" - you're saying this about a group of people who created a "religion" which is making fun of people with... lots of ego and no logic...?

"Pastafarianism," strictly defined, is a weak straw-man used by people with lots of ego and no logic.
