Man Prays To Flying Spaghetti Monster

PORTLAND, Ore. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A man in Portland, Oregon, is praying to a higher power he’s dubbed the “flying spaghetti monster.”

Bobby Henderson founded the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster more than two years ago, and has been preaching the gospel of “Pastafarianism” ever since.

The meaty religion was founded on the idea that something called the “Flying Spaghetti Monster” created the Earth a few thousand years ago, but just made it look like evolution is responsible for human existence.

Henderson says, “The spaghetti monster came to me in a dream and told me to spread the word. We’re not very different from most religions, except no one’s been killed in the name of this religion.”

Henderson says devout Pastafarians eat spaghetti as a form of communion, though other types of pastas are acceptable.

The spaghetti monster has also been known to pop up in strange places, just like images of Jesus and the Virgin Mary tend to appear on pieces of toast.
