    If people spent more time listening to God, whatever their religion, and talking to God rather than lecturing folks on their religion, this world would not be so uuck fped.

    +1 Seasoned Oak. Also, most have an overwhelming cultural component.

    Fair cop, though the scientology one should have had an additional box about being spoiled and famous and jumping up and down on couches......
    looking back it did say the rich and insane thing, thereby making the Cruise point.

    As you may know, Christianity, in its singlemindedness, cleverly skirts around the "multiple gods" question by allowing for different names for their one god. So they would say that Flying Spaghetti Monster is really just a pseudonym for Jahweh, the one true god, jealous beyond all others to the point that he denies their existence.

    Additionally, religious scholars acknowledge that the very concept of a Flying Spaghetti Monster is problematical. Anyone who eats that much spaghetti is unlikely to ever be able to become airborne. :lol:

    De Georgio: Uh-uh. Too much linguine. I'll find another way.

    One of my all time favorite experiences with Jesus freaks was this guy I used to work with. He was always spouting scripture and telling people they were going to be thrown into the lake of fire. Meanwhile, he was one of the laziest, rottenest human beings on the face of the earth. Anyway, he had Jesus saves stickers all over his lunch box. One of the guys ate his lunch and left a note that said "why didn't Jesus save you any?"
