Ahoy there matey!

Well it depends by how you define a religion. We are essentially here to parody ID being taught in classrooms, so in essence not really an organised religion.

However, there are some who wish to make it an organised religion and good on them for that!! I'm not aware of any attempts to get formal religious recognition in Australia. But hey, if Scientology can do it, there is no reason why we can't!

Given your circumstances, I'd say you have every right to start preaching your own doctrine right back at those sanctimonius dimwits. Get your best pirate gear, copy of Bobby's book and midget friends together - and unleash pasta hell!!

Bible at the window - man that is so lame. Those guys have got loser tatooed on their foreheads.

I'm in Australia, and I recently had to go into hospital; I put 'Pastafarian' in thr 'religion' slot on the form, but my wristband was printed Rel: OTHER. :furious: Next time I'll try Church of FSM (CoFSM) and see what they put! :wink:

I have a shrine in my room (a pirate ship children's tent with a model FSM made from big polystyrene balls and hair noodles) and I have a little pirate ship (bath toy) and FSM (made from little polystyrene balls and coloured pipe cleaners) attached to my mobility walker for everyone to see when I go out! :cool:

I also have pirate flags everywhere.

I'm sure you could retaliate by putting a copy of the FSM gospel in your window. A religion does not have to be officially recognised anywhere for it to be a valid one for you!

WIkipedia knows everything, so it doesn't seem as if any are (though I suggest all should be).

Looks like someone had a go at Scientology, though:
