Today I learned the pastafarians are really, really materialistic about religion. Like, they chide people for thinking mainstream religions are more legitimate than praying 5 times a day facing reddit, but at the same time their way of "legitimizing" their "religion" is incredibly superficial. They wear colanders on their head as religious headgear...except only for special occasions or at the dmv because this thing is really uncomforta-I mean uh sacred and for special occasions. They wrote a bible, explicitly so none of them could ever read it except in a weird telephone game way where one of them reads it and the rest of them quote him forever. They talk about how much they hated being indoctrinated as children, but as soon as they have their own cursed spawn, they're jumping at the chance to name them Fusilli or some shit. This episode turned my brain into red sauce.
