Do you know the Flying Spaghetti Monster? If not, may his noodly appendages rap you up in his carbohydrate goodness. The Flying Spaghetti Monster, or FSM for short, is a being that is a monster, that flies, and oh yes, is made of spaghetti. What, absurd, inane, idiotic?
How dare you? The FSM made you to worship his noodly goodness. FSM is no stranger then any other god and like all supposed gods, it is man made. (I wonder how many gods were actually made by women?).
Now, I am sure you are well aware of Kickstarter, if not, it is a website that allows you to fund with your own hard earned dollars various projects.
Some of the projects are wacky and some are absurd, but some enlighten while they entertain.
So, that brings me to a project at Kickstarter to make an animated video of the genesis of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. FSM started out as a satire by a Bobby Henderson to the Kansas state school board that wanted to promote Intelligent Design or creationism in public schools.
Indeed, there exists a "church" of the FSM. Those who are members, are Pastafarians!
His position was that if you are going to teach the bible, you might as well teach about the FSM. By the way, the FSM does not order anyone killed, unlike the deity of the bible, but he does allow himself to be sacrificed for you in boiled water, especially if you have some parmesan cheese.
So you have until November 4, 2013 to help fund this project. It needs a cool 75 thousand, and of when I am writing this it has less then $17,000. If it does not meet the $75K amount, there is no charge to you.
Finally, Ramen everyone.
