I've been a atheist for a really long time because, well, I hadn't seen convincing evidence for God's existence. Until today. I just found out about some really amazing miracles while I was reading the website of the Church of the FSM.
When I clicked on the site, there was a post about the image of the FSM appearing in a sand dune, and the dune in question was none other than the Dune of Pyla, which is near where I live!!! I've been there!!!
When I saw the Dune of Pyla right there on the front page of the Church of the FSM site, I felt like the Flying Spaghetti Monster was talking directly to me. (although hopefully not touching me with his "noodly appendage" as they say because that's kind of creepy...)
Even more convincing is the miracle of the fact that the expanding universe and mouse neurons are both seen to have the form of FSM:
Now, that can't be a coincidence or have a natural explanation, can it?
So, I was thinking of converting to Pastafarianism. I figure it wouldn't be much of a lifestyle change for my family since my kids already like pirates.
On the other hand, if I'm going to join a religion, I have to be sure I'm picking the right one (otherwise that whole "Pascal's wager" thingy doesn't work), and there was one other contender that caught my attention: Thor. The Thor-worshipers like to say "You believe in Jesus? Well, I believe in Thor. Your god died nailed to a cross. My god has a hammer. Any questions?"
That's a pretty convincing argument since if you're going to be "God-fearing" it makes sense to pick a God who really inspires fear. So I'm torn.
Of course it may already be too late to steer my kids off the atheist track. My little Leo loves this evolution of Homer video we found posted at Pharyngula -- he keeps watching it over and over and laughing.
So which should I go with? FSM? Thor? Or should I just keep on atheizing?
