This might come as a shock to a lot of people but talks of this religion named “Pastafarianism” has been going around on the internet for quite a while since 2005 to be precise.
Pastafarianism is a parody movement that mocks orthodox religious practices. For instance, the group’s prayers finish with the word ‘R'Amen’, instead of ‘Amen’, in tribute to the Japanese noodles.
Pastafarians don't believe in forced religionism, even though in the early years when it was not an officially recognized religion, some of the followers were charged with vandalism for spraying "Praise the FSM" outside Christian Churches. Later Ordained Ministers of the FSM(Flying Spaghetti Monster ) started a fundraiser to pay for the cleanup and fortunately enough managed to raised $2500, for which the Christian Pastors acknowledged and appreciated the gesture.
"Prove Your Religion Right And I Will Stop Practicing Mine"
According to the practitioners of Pastafarianism, The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, or Pastafarianism, is the religious following of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, commonly abbreviated as FSM. According to Pastafarianism, FSM is a benevolent supernatural entity who created the world some 4000 years ago while very drunk, although the world is intentionally built to make humans think it's older than it really is.
Most of the people that practice Pastafarianism are either Athiest or Agnostic.
