It is a satirical religion.
Founded by Bobby Henderson in order to battle against Creationism and the School Board who was trying to have Creationism taught in the school systems.
I DEMAND EQUAL CLASS TIME!!!!! If you will teach about your God then I demand time be spent on my GOD, even if it is a Gigantic Flying Spaghetti Monster!
It grew from there. People gravitate to it as a clever way to battle against Creationism and as a tool for argument. The burden of proof is for YOU to prove WHY my God does NOT EXIST.
It is similar to the “Russian TeaPot.” Also similar to the “Invisible Pink Unicorn.”
Also, if you are a Pastafarian then you can wear a Pasta Strainer on your head for your Driver’s License photo as a Religious HeadDress.
Instead of being an Atheist, you can choose to be a Pastafarian.
