Not believe as such. I'm a secular pastafarian. I just KNOW intellectually, by applying a special branch of homecooked 'logic', that the great noodlemaster etc is 'real'....somehow.

I don't mind, if you comment on anything, I'm involved in. Go ahead.

I agree and thank you for understanding my point of view as well. Some people on ATS are total diehards for religion and others are evidence-based gathering for decision-making reasons people. I don't take the dying as a joke and much is to be said for that. On the other hand people need to lighten up a bit and have an open mind to things.

Mankind didn't create leukemia or gravity. Mankind relates to such as best it can. Quote: ["This is why we must ALL work together for the ultimate cause so we may reap the ultimate effect! It took that experience of a nightmare to awaken my family to the fact of WHO GOD really IS and who He isn't."] That sounds sensible, except for the missing part of how any 'god' became a part of the 'equation'.

Ah yes the napkin of truth – who among us, having read it would fail to understand and believe in its message!!1!!1
There are of course some who say they don’t believe - but it’s a well know fact (at lest among those who know the fact well) that they only say that because they want to continue sinning – which is fair enough I suppose
On this subject of sin, I did here of a Middle Eastern carpenter who was nailed to some wood for our sins!!!1!1 – I don’t know much more about this belief system than that, but if he did have himself nailed to something for our sins then its up to us to sin often and long – so as to make his sacrifice worthwhile!!!1!!!

Based on an overenthusiastic interpretation of the 'we', it appears you have converted. I hope un-influenced by either brother superior or by brother me. I'm all for people making their own decissions.

I quoted the above because for me, this is where we find even more Truth. You never stop searching even when you have found the root of Love..... and even IF you wanted to stop...Truth continues revealing itself to you through the Creation. Creation has not stopped. There IS A PLAN that we little grasshoppers cannot grasp. We think in "human" terms and although one can say that is all we know, I say no it's not. We know a lot and we are becoming more aware. Awareness is KEY!
Sadly, It seems as though there are many people who have stopped searching. Did they stop searching or are they just "goat headed" and unwilling to believe that God is indeed "good" all the time?
If one has a heart that is seeking Truth within the reality of soul/spirit/consciousnesses then you find the Creator ...the One within and abroad. For some (me) it is common sense. So ...when I see ones making jokes and simply "not getting it" my mind is boggled. I understand we all experience and we all experience different roads and u turns and so on....but if a heart is sincere about finding the Love of God....He will assuredly find It!
Its not about being right or wrong. Its about positive and negative. A positive can cancel a negative. Two negatives make more negative. Only two positives make more positive. If you divide truth this way, you end up in one of three places: Where you are. Where you might have gone. Where you don't want to be. It is possible to assign polarity to facts. Good and evil, love and hate, humility and bias, altruism and objectivism, liberal and conservative. Hate cannot dispel hate. Only love dispels hate. Simple mathematics can eliminate pride for love. One is a negative and one is a positive. Cling to the positive and life blossoms like a flower.
Pastafarians don't put so much trust in semanticism as you do. We're just "right, because we're right" without all these many flowery euphemisms. So I'm right, right. PS (-2) x (-2) = + 4. Not that it matters AT ALL, but it shows the worthlessness of allegories and especially badly chosen ones.
Regardless of when such an act is carried out, it is still immoral and should be considered as such. Rape 2000 years ago is still abhorrent, genocide carried out 2000 years ago is still repugnant and torturing people forever because they didn't believe something for no good reason, is probably the most immoral (or evil) act ever conceived.
