Legal: Atheism is there. Am I allowed to...

Postby watbeliever » Fri Jun 29, 2007 1:10 pm

I'm an atheist, born christian. Am I allowed to write down my religion as pastafarianism in official documents?

How about agnosticism? Or other convictions?

Do I have to officially change my religion, like my homeplace?

Pastafarianism won't be accepted as a real religion. You can try, but I doubt it will be recognized.

A lot of people put themselves as Pastafarians on the last Australian census after an e-mail got around, but they were all put under the category "Not defined". same with the jedi.

the next time I have to put a religion down I plan to put "Discordian Pastafarian Apatheist Unitarian Universalist." That should rightly mess with the minds of the data entry people.

That is the problem, and being pirates does not sit well with the establishment. Nor should what the establishment decides should sit well with pirates.

You see the paradox of wanting to be recognized by the very forces a good Pastafarian should be renoucing?

An elipsis has 3 dots, not 1 (hmm... Not hmm), recognized, not recognised, two m's in commie, and that's it.

Be kind Shasta50, he is from eastern Europe. Most of the time his spelling is better than mine, which isn't difficult.

Well, actually...

Saying "Hmm" and ending with a period rather than an ellipsis is perfectly alright. Adding the ellipsis only serves to make the sound longer.

"Hmm..." is a thoughtful noise while "Hmm." is a noise of disagreeance.

"Recognized" is the American spelling, and, although "commie" is spelt with two M's, Engllish is not AZN Pride's first language, so he is given some leniance.


Also, YOU spelt ellipsis wrong. And you left out the word "Nazi".

I thought it was standard procedure to sterilize our grammar nazi's. How are they procreating?

And apparently that egoistic condescending self righteous mutation on chromosome 14 has gotten worse.

Isn't there some forum for english lit grad students who teach ENG 101 to freshman, where you all could convene, discuss punctuation, how cool Joyce was, and get this shit out of you. I mean ..... seriously!

This has been Bob Barker reminding you to always have your grammar nazi's spayed or neutered!

Shasta, did ya see how Zank was able to totally pwn you, while all the time keeping his cool, never being dickish.

Thats constructive grammar criticism. You could take a lesson or two.
