Yes. Yes you should.

You are who you worship.

In what sense to you mean the word "should" here?

If it's in a moral sense then I can see no justifying reason for why there would be a moral ought conferred on one to worship the thing... what is it about the monster which makes it worthy of worship?

Surely we can conceive of a being which is greater than a thing dependent on an Italian dish for its existence.

I meant ontologically greater, not epistemologically greater.

Why not? People will worship anything, even pedophilia. But if it truly speaks to your heart and mind then that's a reflection of who and what you are.

Honestly, Lordgrae, that seems like a waste to me, not unless you truly do believe it exist and has an effect on your life.

I think it would be wiser to pursue philosophies, solutions, and even supernatural entities (if you believe in that sort of thing) that can make your life and life on Earth better. Worshipping and promoting the FSM just seems like a waste of time to me.

I think pursuing the truth is more nobler and more useful.
