God is No Different Than the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
How is a belief in God any different than a belief in the Flying Spaghetti Monster? That's right. There are people who try to argue for the Flying Spaghetti Monster. They call that the deity of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster or Pastafarian. The reality is they think that this is a legitimate argument because they created something. The first we see of the Flying Spaghetti Monster was first described in a satirical open letter by Bobby Henderson in 2005.
So this was never meant to be taken serious. It was something that was a protest to the Kansas State Board of Education's decision to permit Intelligent Design. They would argue that that's a religious View and yet the reality is the difference between God in the Flying Spaghetti Monster is well, the Flying Spaghetti Monster is never actually believed by anybody to exist.
Nobody takes that seriously and really follows that however with God. Well, He is the necessary precondition to any kind of protest at all, when you sit here and argue for things that are immaterial like your ability to reason your knowledge claims all those things. They require an immaterial Source the universe requires a creator.
That is who we call God.
