    Three years ago, Austrian Pastafarian Nico Alm— adherent to the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster— showed up at his local police station to apply for a new driver’s license. In line with an Austrian law which stipulates that the only headgear allowed in official photos is required religious headgear, Alm wore a pasta sieve on his noggin, handle cocked to the side.

    In the letter, Henderson asked the Pastafarian version of intelligent design to be taught to schoolchildren as an alternative to the Christian theory, demanding that it receive equal attention to evolution and intelligent design. Henderson published the letter on his website, earning a wide response from good-natured atheists and agnostics who related to his point.

    Since then, Pastafarianism has grown into a “real” fleshed-out religion. Their core belief is that pirates are divine beings who have been slandered over the years by Christians, but who were originally “peace-loving explorers and spreaders of good will” who distributed candy to small children.

    Their data are wrong. There are large numbers of Pirates in Somalia, Yemen and the Malay straits.

    and Wall St.

    Of course, the fact that the data are wrong never stopped any religion before.

    Now hang on there mods..... are you sure this should be in the humor thread?

    It sounds like a religious argument to me.
