I'm interested in becoming a Pastafarian, because it has pirates, and everyone loves pirates.
Also, I hate Intelligent *cough* design. One thing I need to make sure of though is that this religeon is just a joke right? I heard there were people who actually believed this stuff. Just making sure.
Yes, it is just a joke. But, you know, I'm an Atheist and a Pastafarian, and if atheism is nothing and Pastafarianism is something, then something cancels out nothing, so something is the only thing and nothing is naught. So by that reckoning Pastafarianism is my only religious belief.
Seriously though, I commend you for the courage it must have taken to ask that. By joining the forum you do not join the "religion," and since it's impossible to join a religion without dogma and FSMism has no dogma, I'd say you're set. It's a joke, but when you tell random people on the street that you're a Pastafarian, tell them it's real. That's what I do. Especially with Bill the Evangelical, that guy with the pamphlets outside CVS... man I love that guy.
Oh, and to whatever Pastafarian Pirate will inevitably respond to the "This is just a joke" part with, I resolutely quench my face up.
I am anti-"txt talk." I support good grammar. I am part of the "Save the Vowels" movement. For your sanity and mind, type out your damn words.
