I, Pastafari: A Flying Spaghetti Monster Story (2020)

With millions of believers worldwide, The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster is the world’s fastest growing religion. Followers of the faith, Pastafarians, have been preaching the message of the Flying Spaghetti Monster (FSM) since The Prophet Bobby Henderson’s ‘Open Letter to the Kansas School Board’ went viral in 2005. In response to a decision to teach evolution alongside creationism as equivalent theories in science classes statewide, he argued that it would then only be fair to teach other creation beliefs in science as well. Specifically, his belief: that a Flying Spaghetti Monster created the universe. I, Pastafari is a story about a few brave Pastafarians evangelizing the message of the FSM, while confronting intolerant skeptics for the freedom to access privileges in law granted to other “real” religions. In a time of anti-vaxxers, flat-earthers, fake news, and alternative facts, the Pastafarians may be the savior the world has been waiting for.
