By design, the only dogma allowed in the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster Australia is the rejection of dogma.
Try Pastafarianism for thirty days! If you don’t like us, your old religion will most likely take you back.
“With millions, if not thousands, of devout worshipers, the Church of the FSM is widely considered a legitimate religion, even by its opponents—mostly fundamentalist Christians, who have accepted that our God has larger balls than theirs.”
What do we believe?
What are we for? All that is good!
What are we against? All that is not good!
Although “the only dogma allowed in the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster is the rejection of dogma”, some general beliefs are held by Pastafarians. Pastafarians believe that the universe was created by the FSM while very drunk, the effects of which can be seen in the resulting imperfections and contradictions in the universe.
The Flying Spaghetti Monster is depicted as a tangle of spaghetti with many Noodly Appendages, flanked by two delicious meatballs, and with a pair of googly eyes upon stalks. Such a depiction is merely a guess, of course, as the FSM is understandably invisible to all known forms of scientific detection. Although the exact airspeed velocity of an unladen Flying Spaghetti Monster is unknown, it is widely believed that it is more than likely to be faster than a cheetah. However, this is not the answer you are looking for. You need to think for yourselves!
Whether or not the FSM is actually made of pasta is the subject of intense theological debate, with many claiming that the FSM is not made of pasta, but just appears to be, while others believe that to be a Flying Spaghetti Monster, the FSM must be made of pasta. The FSM is neither male nor female, but completely genderless, as the idea of a Monotheistic deity needing a gender or genitals is pretty silly when you really think about it. The genderless term Pastafarians refer to FSM as is ‘Quob’ – as in – ‘May you be Touched by Quob’s Noodly Appendage’ instead of referring to our deity’s Noodly Appendages as ‘his’ or ‘her’ Noodly Appendages.
All followers of the FSM hold that pirates are sacred and were the first Pastafarians. Climate change, earthquakes, hurricanes and other natural disasters are directly linked to the declining number of pirates worldwide. Many Pastafarians therefore choose to wear full pirate regalia as a means to help the environment and belay natural disasters. Other Pastafarians just like wearing colanders on their heads.
The system of Pastafarianism ethics is based on the “The Eight I’d Really Rather You Didn’ts” – a series of suggestions on how to live your life in a happy manner without infringing upon others rights to do the same with their own lives. The 8’s outline a morality which is based on harmonious co-existence, non-judgemental conduct and generally not being a dick. Worship of the FSM is not commanded or even expected. In many ways, Pastafarians believe that this ethical system is superior to all other mainstream religions.
While the beliefs professed by Pastafarians may often be accused of being a joke, satire or even a parody, (especially by the media) this is explicitly and strenuously denied by the church.
“It’s not a joke. Elements of our religion are sometimes described as satire and there are many members who do not literally believe our scripture, but this isn’t unusual in religion. A lot of Christians don’t believe the Bible is literally true – but that doesn’t mean they aren’t True Christians.” Bobby Henderson
A wide variety of people are drawn to our religion for diverse reasons, but our love of all things Noodly, our constant celebration of life, eating, drinking, our ability to laugh at ourselves, to have fun and to still be good people, usually means people stay once they have joined us.
The congregation of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster Australia is currently in the process of establishing an official Australian religion in His Noodly honour. We are currently seeking fellow Pastafarians to join us in this venture.

The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster NZ believes that FSM is a SHE – with large gonads = we have published our Aims and Purposes on our FB page and we are looking forward to creating a website as our Sister Church In Australia has done.
Love You! CFSM NZ
Since the above statement, the CFSM NZ has reviewed the evidence and concluded that the FSM is in fact gender-neutral – as no deities reproduce or have any other use for genitalia – our doctrine now reflects this new insight into the FSM’s Being thus removing the hormonal-threatening irrational sexist dialogue (our god has bigger balls) and replacing it with rational, inclusive, peaceful understandings (the original pirates were peaceful explorers not the violent sexist villains portrayed by some).

Fab news on the licence photo today.’
Long live fettucine and linguini.
Finally a faith that treats religion exactly as seriously as it should be treated. This really speaks to my better self. I hereby adopt The Flying Spaghetti Monster to be my new imaginary friend. I look forward to many enthralling conversations with this magestic, ethereal being.

your religion is so outdated
I’m in.. The only religion that truly makes sense.
It’s good to see that Atheists are finally admitting that their faith-based beliefs also require a church just like all other religions. We all knew Atheism was a religious organisation from the start, it just took some time. An organisation like most others that also require financial donations – it’s good to see Atheism fighting for their religious rights with it’s legal proceedings. Well done on officiating that fact to the world and coming clean with it. When will your next genocide event take place? Sorry. Was that too soon…?
Isnt satanism an atheist religion?
Hardly. Just a different deity.
I am aready a pastafairian and i would like tobecome captain but how us this so please advice
I love spaghetti bolognaise, that’s Amore. And fuck pizza, if you get Italian it’s spaghetti or nothing.
I’d like to start a branch of the church of the flying spaghetti monster in my predominantly catholic home, the Philippines, which constantly and blatantly disregards the separation of Church and state. Anyone I can reach out to for help?
is there a spaghetti hell and a spaghetti heaven?
hell is defined as a place or state that separates you from the love of Glob, therefore, Pastafarian hell is a place lacking any form of pasta! Heaven Forbid!!!
My name is Mohammed Is this acceptable?
Absolutely Mohammed. The Flying Spaghetti Monster loves all his children.
His noodly appendage has touched me! From this day forth I shall bear the honorific title ‘noodler’!
All hail our spaghetti monster, he boiled for our sins!
– Josh El’Dante
The FSM is male (our holy gospel sets out the argument for this) No woman would “fuck up” while drunk as much as the FSM, clearly he is male.
Thank you FSM, I’ve been saved.
In the name of the Pasta, the Son and the Holy Gnocchi
I wanted to write the definitive ‘Book of Colander;’ a treatise on FSM and ‘spaghetti dogma.’
But alas, the arguments I put forward were riddled with holes.
Have just read the 2016 census results and disappointed to know only 26 registered pastafarians Australia wide . Myself and 2 mates are part of the 26 and are queenslanders .
Who else is out there ?
We must remember
” He boiled for our sins ”
Dear my friend, we lack Bible for our references. An church under tree. Pray for us. For get tent.
There is indeed a book of truth. The Gospel of the FSM is written by Bobby Henderson who’s hand was guided by His Noodly Appendage.
I hope you find comfort food in its teachings
Good work fellas, I believe 100% in this and keep on doing what u like and believe in!
Hey, sent through a membership request a while ago. How do i know when i have been officially welcomed into the noodley goodness of this church?
To err is human, to arr is seriously pirate.
Need a place to worship.
I really want to show my to the Flying Spaghetti Monster but I am very upset that my faith is still not accepted in Australia. I wish there were a place like Christians, Jews and Muslims have where I can proudly worship my god.
HAPPY MEMBER AND STRIVING TO ENCOURAGE MORE….
Minister Brock here, keen to know about QLD driver licence. Can I wear my religious hat in the photo?
Hail the one true Noodly GOD.
Spaghetti Monster is love. Spaghetti monster is life.
do you have to love pasta to join
Shouldn’t it be frowned upon to engage in the consumption of pasta or spaghetti as that would therefore be the eating of the flesh of your deity?
I am the only member of the breakaway Marinara Sect. Seafood rules.
This sect sounds interesting . Can I get more details .
My father and uncle have just seen the noodly appendage light and the Dutch government is deciding whether having colanders on your head in passport fotos is legal or not http://www.telegraaf.nl/e/29142937
Happy Victorian member who is encouraging others..
