i have finally found religion - the church of the flying spaghetti monster
i am now officially a pastafarian!

it's a poke at organized religion by a teacher from kansas who didn't want to discuss intelligent design in his classes. it is very clever. i haven't found out what the eight "i'd really rather you didn'ts (commandments)" are. guess i need to obtain a copy of, and study, "the gospel of the flying spaghetti monster."

they have an article on wikipedia that makes me smile. i must get a monster-shaped car emblem (to recognize like minded individuals, if any...)

6. why thank you! i lurk a lot but post very little
guess i've been touched by the "noodly appendages"

still sounds kind of dirty to me, but i guess that's the point!

7. thanks for the tip - what an awesome website!
i didn't think it was possible to have a religion for scientists! i have a lot of interesting reading to do. i was sorry to see that wikipedia has removed information on it. i assume the fundies put up a squawk. they really fear thought most of all, don't they!

i appreciate the heads up. thanks again!

up too late again -- sleep deprivation is the du lifestyle! night...
