In 2001, the UK census showed that over 10,000 people had put 'Jedi' down in their religion. If 10,000 British people put down Pastafarianism as their religion, it will be officially recognised by the Government. Then, we can be truly, a religion!
I thought of this because we had a practice RE Question that was taken from the GCSE paper of a few years ago. it was 'Describe a religious view of how the world was created'. I asked if I could describe any religion's beliefs and my teacher said: "As long as it's one of the main religions", which she then defined as Christianity, Hinduism, Sikhism, Judaism, Buddhism and another one that i cant remember. I find this disgraceful! Pastafarianism isn't actually a recognised religion! if 10,000 people put 'Jedi' in the census without any organisation, then surely we can make it!
