Flying Spaghetti Monster * 4

I have read that many people find this to be mocking of religion, but isn't religion self-mocking?

If religious folk can see the absurdity of holy pasta, why are they unable to see the silliness of their own wacky myths?

You present nothing yet OC clearly presents that there is no way to make a distinction between pasta being holy and sacred from anything else being holy and sacred so they are both equally ridiculous.

If you disagree why not post why instead of posting a slight to a belief without backing it up?

holy pasta

Clearly, holy pasta is absurd.

However, holy bread and wine sanctified at Catholic mass is sacred. :yesnod:

Too bad it didn't start out being holy wine and pasta.  I'd turn catholic just for the Sunday brunch.

Im not asking why YOUR beliefs are silly. Im asking you why doesn't everyone think their own beliefs are silly?

probably because they believe in them.

The flying-spaghetti monster is completely arbitrary and isn't even a solid concept while God although unprovable, is.

Before we can refute it's existence you have to outline what it's existence is. Define 'the flying spaghetti monster'.

It is a monster who is all powerful and made of spaghetti. Do you have a definition for "God" that is any better than that?

people don't tend to have visions of the flying spaghetti monster followed by feelings of bliss and purpose. not that i've heard of anyways.  maybe there will be some ultra ironic astral world that starts to develop :lol:

So it is some kind of organism made of spaghetti which has a finite existence within time and space. If it exists in time and space then it cannot be all powerful as it will be limited by time and space.

Quote:

You serious? Your spaghetti monster God is a joke. My God does not exist within time and space because he is the cause of time and space.

The spaghetti God is completely arbitrary and is not a solid concept. This spaghetti monster argument is only made by those who have a very primitive conception of what God is.

Are you serious? How insulting!

His noodlyness is the cause of time and space. He is creator of all there is. He is the beginning and the end.

YOUR god is the joke. He doesn't even have holy sauce. What kind of god doesn't have sauce? All he has is holy water. It is thin and not sacred.

You should stop talking nonsense and insulting the beliefs of millions of Pastafarians around the world. :mad2:
