In summary, the website venganza.org was mentioned earlier, but the original thread could not be found. However, in the feedback section of the current issue of New Scientist, it was reported that the site is now receiving 200k hits a day. This provides a logical explanation for the correlation between Global Warming and Pirate population, as shown in a graph previously encountered. The phrase "all hail the spaghetti monster" is also referenced.

Now I have a logical explanation for the correlation between Global Warming and Pirate population! I had encountered this graph before but without the underlying context. Science is great.

1. What is the Flying Spaghetti Monster?

The Flying Spaghetti Monster, also known as the FSM, is a satirical deity created by Bobby Henderson in 2005 as a response to the teaching of intelligent design in schools. It is often used as a symbol for the separation of church and state and a critique of organized religion.

2. Is the Flying Spaghetti Monster a real religion?

No, the Flying Spaghetti Monster is not a real religion. It was created as a parody and has gained a following as a symbol of religious skepticism.

3. What are the beliefs of followers of the Flying Spaghetti Monster?

The beliefs of followers of the Flying Spaghetti Monster vary, but they generally reject organized religion and promote scientific and critical thinking. Some followers also engage in charitable work and community service.

4. Why is the Flying Spaghetti Monster often depicted as a giant spaghetti creature with meatball eyes?

This image is based on the original description of the Flying Spaghetti Monster in Bobby Henderson's open letter to the Kansas State Board of Education. It is meant to highlight the absurdity of teaching intelligent design in schools.

5. Can I become a member of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster?

Yes, anyone can become a member of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. The "official" website of the Church allows individuals to become ordained as Pastafarian ministers for a small fee. However, many followers of the FSM consider it more of a cultural movement and do not require official membership or ordination.
