The Netherlands recognizes Pastafarianism as an official religion

Published February 1st, 2016 by Bobby Henderson


Great news, The Netherlands has recognized Pastafarianism as an official religion. There are efforts for recognition in a bunch of places — I find it interesting (and telling) the reactions from the various governments. Clearly The Netherlands is a great place.

The Metro has a nice article about the successful Netherlands effort here.

Nice work guys.

      Why should I be looking for B.O.? I spend a lot of time trying to get rid of it.

        Keith, Possibly to stay (or get) tuned with the afore-itered language?

          togelpelangi sounds the one of the villages one cleans out in “Just Cause 2”.

          Huh, another thing I had to look up. Last time I played such a game was some 5 yrs ago when my son got addicted to… can’t even remember the name now, some warry-cum-building thingie. Got worried that he wasn’t doing anything else for 4 solid months, then got angry as he started bragging, registered in, built up the 6th largest army (the young brat was quite advanced, I had to go high to get him) in about 3 very intense wks, smashed his and all his villages to smithereens in 28 hrs non-stop, got him totally disgusted, gave my army to interested bodies, disappeared from that stupid game and went to sleep for 1 3/4 day. Got told off by most players coz of my aggressive ways. One’s gotta do what one’s gotta do.

          There’s a tribe in Terry Pratchett that speaks a bit like that too.

          Just Cause is a single player shoot-em-up franchise. JC2 is set in a fictional island nation ruled by someone who bears a startling resemblance (in attitude but not appearance) to beloved leader Kim. It is addictive but it doesn’t sound like the game your son played.

          Disabled toilet.

        • basicdesign says:

          Keith, as you say, it wasn’t. I read the wiki article summary on it, this one looks more up-to-date with present political concerns.

        • Keith says:

          Patroller: The game does not involve the use of toilets, so your comment is irrelevant. If you want to comment on toilets and games I would suggest “Toilet Kids”

        • basicdesign says:

          Keith (comment to Pt) : and it starts with “push run button”, how appropriate.

        • Captain Birdseye says:

          I suggest this for playing said game and posting comments:

          basicdesign: Ha ha! I imagine there is a diarrhoea level. For more interesting Japanese games please see here:


          I have the Katamari games and Muscle March.

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems
    of plagorism or copyright infringement? My website
    has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either written myself
    or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it
    up all over the web without my agreement. Do you know any methods to
    help stop content from being ripped off? I’d certainly appreciate it.

    • Captain Birdseye says:

      Yeah, Darcy, learn how to spell plagiarism, read the Internet copy-write laws and fuck off from spamming. When you’ve finished that, fuck off again.

      • Captain Birdseye says:

        … that should of course have been ‘copyright’.

        • Keith says:

          And “having”.

    What you posted was actually very logical. But, what about this?
    suppose you typed a catchier post title? I mean, I don’t want
    to tell you how to run your blog, but suppose you added a post
    title that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean The Netherlands recognizes Pastafarianism as an official religion « Church of the
    Flying Spaghetti Monster is a little boring.
    You should peek at Yahoo’s home page and note how they write article titles to get people to open the links.
    You might add a video or a pic or two to get people excited about everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it might make
    your blog a little bit more interesting.

      Marcelino, do us a favour and go back on the dole.
