"It's just a statement about religious freedom," Schaeffer told the Observer. "It's a religion without any dogma."

phlegmmo: Eddie Adams from Torrance: We should ban politicians who openly belong to made-up religions.

The question is: who decides which religions are made-up?

I always wondered where strippers came from.



Mostly from dance recitals daddy was too busy to make it to.

Every man worships his own particular brand of spaghetti, my brother.
They just have different names for them.
God, Allah, Yahweh, Bodistvah, Shiva, Zeus, Odin, Rumpsplitter the Magnificent - it's all just spaghetti.

Can people stop pretending that Atheism is an actual thing and not a non-thing? I mean, I'm an atheist and quite a few of you are athists too. But I don't think we have much in common, do we?
I mean, I'm a socialist, cultural imperialist(Norway! YAY!) and academic who loves language, my kids, my work, my wife and playing games (RPG and tabletop) and enjoy a good crime drama (especially about burglary from giant winged lizards) and often overindulge in the use of parenthesis (I know). I think the obsessiveness and hysteria about religious people bog down debates about religion and its validity, the intricateness about religion as a cultural construct rathern than a metaphysical idea. I think there is no absolutes in right or wrong, but that you need to see what your goals (in the widest sense possible) are and act in accordance to them. I think that emotions are good things to have and strive for, but shouldn't be counted for guiding you towards the right action other than in making split second decisions. I'm pro choice.

How much do we really have in common ethically? We don't believe in this one thing? I mean, should I start bonding with other people who think american football is ridiculous? Should I start discussing with other poeple how boring I find watching soccer? Are any of you not particularly fond of having a "rustic" look on things? Think the era of Baroque description should be left dead? Anyone here who also don't prefer the color yellow on t-shirts? Wanna talk about it over coffee?

ReverendJimBobHammer: Mentalpatient87: Prank Call of Cthulhu: Mentalpatient87: Yes, that's the joke. We get it already. So glad you could feel clever by repeating the joke yet again...

Maybe you could pray for divine relief from the butthurt you're experiencing?

But I'm an atheist. So who do I pray to? Oh! You thought I was a Christian who feels offended and threatened by your righteous crusade? How sad for you that I'm just a fellow nonbeliever who's sick of watching people show their asses and call it clever.

So... "stop making jokes I don't like"?

Just so I get things straight, and I have already read that you are an atheist, you think the only good atheists are the serious ones who are quiet and non-confrontational about their non-faith, who don't make waves, who don't make fun of any religion, who hide in the shadows?

You sound a lot like the gay guys in the 50s 60s and 70s who were mad at activists who insisted in being gay and flamboyant in the public eye. Saying that they would be left alone if they were only quiet about their gayness.


You are comparing being an atheist in this day and age to being gay in the mid-20th century? You may want to dial back that persecution complex, chief.

Smoking GNU: DubtodaIll: Ilmarinen: In what way is Pastafarianism more weird or disrespectful than, say, Mormonism or Catholicism? Because I seriously don't see it.

Because satire is always more disrespectful than the genuine article.

Only by those people with whom the satire hit's a nerve, as if their core belief might, just might, be total BS after all.


What's BS about faith?  It's a good thing for the individual.

rebelyell2006: You think worshipping pasta is odd? Look at the Christians. They wear ancient execution devices around their necks to worship an imaginary guy who was executed per Roman law related to brigandage, highway robbery and treason. That shows a distinct lack of maturity and sanity.


Oh look, an uniformed fool.  How delightfully unoriginal.
I bet you think sports aren't scripted, and your video games are good.
You're wrong a lot.

So, athiests only?  Or are you really liberal and open to agnostics?

OTOH, that was quite a hipster little display of attention w***ing.
