I hate to be the brazen rookie convert but I really must take issue with the posts in this thread so far.
The Flying Spaghetti Monster (Pesto be upon him) is neither a Trinity nor a Quadity. Pasta, meatballs, sauce and so on are not "three that agree in one" but distinct elements. They are separable parts that together make up the FSM (PBUH). There is no contradiction or absurdity to be found so it's hardly a satisfying theistic doctrine.
(PBUH) is a Binity
. This is because He is Spaghetti (as in Flying Spaghetti
Monster), yet He is also Noodle (as in Noodley
appendage). Let's be clear that in the observable universe Spaghetti and Noodles are similar but not the same; just as a Father is similar to his Son yet not the same.
But in the supernatural realm things are quite different. The FSM (PBUH) is Spaghetti and yet He is Noodley
. Spaghetti and Noodles are two that agree in one. Therefore 2 = 1, the Binity, is a basic tenent of our belief system.
I have faith in the evidence.
