The Flying Spaghetti Monster (FSM) is the deity of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, or Pastafarianism. Pastafarianism (portmanteau of pasta and Rastafarianism) is a social movement that promotes a light-hearted view of religion and opposes the teaching of intelligent design and creationism in public schools. According to adherents, Pastafarianism is a “real, legitimate religion, as much as any other. In New Zealand, Pastafarian representatives are authorized to officiate weddings.
However, in the United States, a federal court has ruled that the “Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster” is not a real
In August 2018 the Dutch Council of State also ruled that Pastafarianism is not a religion.

The Flying Spaghetti Monster (FSM), which is said to be invisible, is depicted as a floating mass of spaghetti noodles with a large meatball on either side of its body and two centrally located eyestalks.
How do you pray to the Flying Spaghetti Monster?
Thy noodle come, Thy sauce be yum, on top some grated Parmesan. Give us this day our garlic bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trample on our lawns. And lead us not into vegetarianism, but deliver us some pizza, for thine is the meatball, the onion, and the bay leaves, forever and ever.

In fact, Pastafarianism is an officially recognized religion in three countries—first in Poland, where it became an officially registered religious community in 2014 thanks to a legal technicality, then in the Netherlands this past January. And just this weekend, New Zealand recognized the first legally-binding Pastafarian wedding, officiated by “minestroni” Karen Martyn. The happy couple were wed in the customary pirate’s garb, and Martyn is ready to perform additional ceremonies for any legally eligible adults, explaining to the BBC, “I’ve had people from Russia, from Germany, from Denmark, from all over contacting me and wanting me to marry them in the church because of our non-discriminatory philosophy.”
In Czechia and Lubbock, Texas, Pastafarians have been allowed to wear their traditional headdress—a colander—in state ID photos, according to the New York Daily News. Actually, getting permission to wear a colander in official photos is one of the adherents’ favorite evangelical strategies, judging by posts on the official site and elsewhere. Basically, this goofy-sounding belief system is full of enthusiastic followers who are eager to see their religion legitimized.
Will Pastafarianism’s religious status be debated by the Supreme Court any time soon? Cavanaugh and his legal team have not indicated publicly that they intend to appeal the District Court’s ruling, but some Pastafarians are calling for further action. Right now, we’ll have to wait and see but if past efforts are any indication, we might be taking Pastafarianism a lot more seriously in the future.
