polytheist pastafarianism

Making pasta; illustration from the 15th century edition of Tacuinum Sanitatis, a Latin translation of the Arabic work Taqwīm al-sihha by Ibn Butlan.Why be a monotheist Pastafarian? You should also honour fusilli, macaroni, lasagna, tagliatelle, vermicelli, ravioli, gnocchi, penne, ziti, strozzapreti and all other forms of pasta. Join the Polytheist Pastafarians.

The illustration is clear evidence that Pasta comes in many forms and is woven by the Great Goddess of Pasta.

Rather like the Three Fates of Greek mythology, who weave our fate and that of the gods, the Great Goddess of Pasta weaves the destinies of all the other Polytheist Pastafarian deities, including the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
