Basic principles of Pastafarianism:
Pastafarianism bases all its faith and belief on the holy books . There we can find our beliefs.
Our faith centers on the Eight Condiments , which are the teachings that MonEsVol left us humans for a full spiritual life. In addition to these, we have Suggestions that make our faith a little easier and perfectly complement the Condiments, as a good sauce does to some noodles.
From here, and in a personal way, each of us can offer prayers and even practice some of the sacred sacraments , although without a doubt, among the most important matters is the celebration of all possible festivals .
Finally, when the MEV considers that it is time to leave this planet, you will undoubtedly be able to enjoy life in the afterlife, with Beer and Strippers .
The core belief is that the invisible and undetectable Flying Spaghetti Monster created the universe after drinking heavily. The monster's drunkenness explains the imperfections of the created world.
All the evidence that "wrongly" supports evolution has been intentionally "planted" by this being to test the faith of his faithful, 2 parodying the position of those who believe in biblical infallibility . Thus, the Flying Spaghetti Monster makes everything look older than it actually is. For example, when a scientist performs a radiometric dating process on an archaeological object, the Flying Spaghetti Monster is there to change the results with its noodle appendage without the scientist noticing. 10
The monster continuously and invisibly guides the behavior of every human being, believer or not, by means of its "noodle appendages."

The Pastafarian belief in heaven emphasizes these two points: 31
It has beer volcanoes as far as the eye can see.
It has a factory for striptease dancers.
Instead, in hell: 32
There are also beer volcanoes, but it's hot and flat.
Striptease dancers suffer from venereal diseases .
The holy day of the Pastafarians is Friday. 2 Devoted Pastafarians must dress fully in pirate attire.
Although the Flying Spaghetti Monster has a name, it is so beautiful and difficult to pronounce that it kills not only whoever tries it, but also everything within a radius of 6534 kilometers (a distance greater than the radius of Earth by a few 150 km). This radius doubles (and thus the resulting sphere encompasses the entire planet) when one tries to type or type the name. This was done on purpose by the Flying Spaghetti Monster just for entertainment.
The Flying Spaghetti Monster revealed his message to the pirate captain Mosey and Bobby Henderson who are prophets of this First United Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
The main symbol is a cross that, instead of having a crucified Jesus, has a fork to eat spaghetti.
Small description of Pastafarianism.
The Flying Spaghetti Monster (derived from "neologism paste " and " Rastafarianism ") or religion of the Flying Spaghetti Monster (FSM MEV) is a social movement, recognized as religion officer for some countries, 4 5 and rejected as such by others, who consider it a parodic religion . 6 7 emerged as a protest social in the United States to denounce and oppose the spread in schools hypothesized the intelligent design , driven by political groups and religious conservatives during the mandates of President George W. Bush , and currents opinion that they intended to be equated with theories accepted by the scientific community such as that of biological evolution .
The Pastafarian Religion or Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster (Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster) or Pastafarism, is an international religion revealed first to the pirate Mosey and later to the prophet Bobby Henderson in 2005 when he was denouncing the decision of the Kansas State Board of Education by the diffusion of the hypothesis of intelligent design, promoted by conservative political and religious sectors, and by the currents of opinion that sought to equate it with theories accepted by the scientific community such as that of biological evolution. Henderson sent an open letter to the Council, in which he expressed his faith in a supernatural creator deity, similar to a huge ball of spaghetti and meatballs. Consequently and after the revelation, he requested that the theory of intelligent design defended by Pastafarism be also taught in science classes.
In 2006 the first writings of the Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster appeared , revealed to the prophet and which are the main scriptures to follow in religion. In them we find demonstrations of the existence of MonEsVol, in addition to The Eight Condiments that establish that you must not be a religious fanatic, that you must be a good person, that you must not judge others and that you help others. In addition, Pastafarism is an inclusive religion, which allows you to belong to any religion or another, in addition to being a Pastafarian.
To be a Pastafarian you only have to proclaim that you have felt being touched by its noodle appendage. From that moment on, you will have 30 days to try Pastafarianism, and if you don't like it, we are convinced that your old religion will welcome you back with open arms.
