um, wow. when i was 12 i was more or less handed off to/kidnapped by my extended family, most of whom are southern baptists of the snake-handling, tongue-speaking variety, and that day they were taking part in a large christian booksellers convention. guess who was forced to dress up in the FULL FOAM COSTUME as bibleman and made to walk around the convention center? yup, me.
Wait...are you guys saying that Bibleman was actually on TV in your country? In 2000, no less?
Oh sweet Jesus no (ahem) - droid said he'd looked it up on Wikipedia.

As much as I appreciate FSM humour, I am slightly disturbed by how much His Holy Noodliness resembles a pair of testes, complete with epididymis...
The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, while having existed in secrecy for hundreds of years, only recently came into the mainstream when this letter was published in May 2005.
With millions, if not thousands, of devout worshippers, the Church of the FSM is widely considered a legitimate religion, even by its opponents – mostly fundamentalist Christians, who have accepted that our God has larger balls than theirs.
Some claim that the church is purely a thought experiment, satire, illustrating that Intelligent Design is not science, but rather a pseudoscience manufactured by Christians to push Creationism into public schools. These people are mistaken. The Church of FSM is real, totally legit, and backed by hard science. Anything that comes across as humor or satire is purely coincidental.
