the Pasta we cook and eat today generally isn't considered to actually BE the FSM, but rather more a representation. some believe the FSM gave us a food in his form as a gift, others say Noodles evolved naturally (wait, what?) and he decided to represent himself in that that form.
whatever the case, Pasta is obviously important. the FSM is a forgiving deity. if you over-cook him, he will understand.
and theres been debate over the FSM's gender. in all honesty I doubt he has one, but its so ingrained in my mind by the general masses of one male god. that its a little hard to stop.
some say the meatballs are more like testicles and the noodles are, y'know. but perhaps the meatballs are breasts?
but really, I doubt he cares what you call him.
But if I stop bugging you I'll have to go back to arguing with Qwerty about whether beauty is truth and precisely what we both mean by 'purple'
