MSU Has Been Touched By His Noodly Appendage

Pastafarianism - that is, the church of The Flying Spaghetti Monster - is the number two religious group at Missouri State University.

Watch this video for a news coverage. To me, the saddest part of this is the final statement made by the reporter about threats the group has received.

Ya just gotta love a good satire - and lament the humorlessness of some christians.

Is Norway's Princess Any Nuttier Than the Average God Believer?

Ever heard of Princess Martha Louise of Norway? She thinks she can talk to angels. And she claims to be able to communicate with horses (and not just by pulling on the reigns).

Now this may sound crazy to you... and it does to me, too. These things, in and of themselves, are ridiculous. But I'm an atheist and I don't "believe" in supernatural horse shit. However, why should a christian (for example) think this is nuts? If you are a christian, mull that around in your cranium for a minute or two...

Christians believe plants were created before the sun existed, that a man named Noah lived for more than 500 years (and, oh, by the way, he built a boat and put pairs of ALL the world's animals on it and sailed it around the world during a global flood), giants used to walk the earth (Genesis 6), and that Abraham had more than a half dozen kids after he was 100 years old... and that is all from just the first chapter of the christian "holy" book. Christians also believe in a man/god, a virgin birth, talking animals, and on and on and on....

I think you're all nuts... just like Princess Martha Louise!
