You dare mock the flying spaghetti monster? He is as arbitrary a construct as the Christian God, and most others. At least the flying spaghetti monster is a somewhat original concept, not taken from the beliefs of religions of millennia past.As an American, you can be whatever the hell you want to be. I know Muslims, and atheists who are more "Christian" than most who claim to be one.
One day, we will all have an opportunity to see which group was right.
It is how you lead your life here, on earth, how you treat and interact with other people that is most important to THE God, whom I believe in. The fact that someone does not believe in HIM does not make him unreal. However, I do feel it is very unwise to mock Him, with comments like on page one of this topic, where they referred to a "flying spaghetti monster."
Again, as an American, it is your right to do so, however, in my personal opinion, I feel that it is very, very unwise to do so.
See ya in the next life! I'll be the one having fettuccini!
