Congratulations and thanks to everyone who took part in the March For Science Rally. I’m relieved to see democracy in action by a sensible group of people.
Even though we Pastafarians are skeptical of “science” and “logical conjecture based on evidence”, we respect the idea of science – its search for knowledge – and we admire the people who dedicate their lives to the cause.
How then is it not a contradiction for Pastafarians, a faith-based group, to support science, or at least scientists?
We Believe an all-mighty Flying Spaghetti Monster alters the universe in a way that makes it *appear* that the scientific method is sound, that humanity’s knowledge and its advancement out of caves and into spaceships is a result of this idea — that we humans can deductively infer conclusions through experiment and reason. So we can’t fault Scientists – they are doing their jobs, and they are intellectually honest. The same can not be said for some groups, including many groups who have a Belief structure that stems from faith.
So why is Pastafarianism correct? Because the FSM says so, and we Believe.
