Pastafarian


Have you ever heard about a strange religion called The Flying Spaghetti Monster??
I'm not joking, of course it exists!
In fact, it's a parody religion that appeared in 2005 by Bobby Henderson. It was a satirical protest to the decision by the Kansas State to teach "Intelligent design" as an alternative to the theory of evolution. Intelligent design was a movement that used ambiguous references to an intelligent designer of our world, a supernatural creator.
For that reason, Henderson invented a new theory of creation called Pastafarian and he wanted to teach in science classrooms. There are other versions of this idea. The Invisible Pink Unicorn is another satiric parody religion. It talks about a god that takes the form of an unicorn that is paradoxically both invisible and pink. In fact, it wants to argue that supernatural beliefs are arbitrary.
In conclusion, I think Pastafarian is a perfect religion to pass on your kids, behind the other religious beliefs. Are you spagnostic? Please, say yes!!! I think it's better than being religious, atheist or agnostic! (Here, I'm kidding, don't get annoyed with me please!)

Hello Sandy!

The meaning of Carpe Noctum! Well indeed that I thoght would be something natural to you, but then again it is easier than you think. It comes from Latin, as you can see and it just means... mind you, any member of the dead poet's society should know by now!

WELL DONE" WHALLENGING ENOUGH! I HOPE YOU WRITE COMMENTS TO PEOPLE SO YOU GETT COMMENTS ON THIS.

Have a look a these:
-he wanted to TEACH in science classrooms

Have a look at the verb patterns or usages of "suggest" and try to change this sentence:
-I would like to suggest you Pastafarian
(You would never say this in English)

I'm sorry. What's the meaning of "WHALLENGING ENOUGH!" It doesn't appear in the dictionary!
