There’s a movement to Reestablish the Sanhedrin, and renew animal sacrifice in Israel. (It’s important to note these are extreme fringe Rabbis, but it’s nice to see they aren’t talking about blowing up the Dome of the Rock, and are only interested in building The Temple next to it. Not that the Muslims are OK with that. And while generally accepted Jewish tradition states the Temple won’t be rebuilt until the Messiah comes, I’d say the moment Islam accepts the reconstruction of The Temple is a good sign of the Messiah. As long as these extremists are willing to wait before they start hammering, they can sacrifice as many animals as they want. Sure, I feel a little for the animals, but I’m not a vegetarian.)
A student has been suspended for dressing up like a pirate. However, the student complains he was practicing his religion – Pastafarianism. Pastafarianism began in Kansas as a parody argument against Intelligent Design — the creator arguing that his religion had to be taught alongside Intelligent Design. But it’s taken on a life of it’s own. Possibly like Discordianism, though no one is certain about the intent of the creators of Discordianism.
Previously I blogged about the relationship between Pirates and Global Warming without realizing the graph was part of Pastafarianism.
