    I like this religion.

    It all started 2 months ago with a funny letter created to protest a Kansas State Board of Education decision allowing Intelligent Design to be taught in science classes.

    Here is an extract of the letter:

    You can read the whole thing (highly recommanded) on the website:

    Wikipedia has a great article about the cult:

    I might consider joining:

    Stop blaspheming Turtoltarianism, the One True Religion. I warn you if you continue to make these kinds of heretical statements that you will go to a Louisiana Cajun restaurant when you die and be made into Turtle Soup for all eternity with all the other unbelievers.

    At best I'll compromise and allow your Spaghetti Man to be taught alongside the Turtle. I hear we also will have to share with some people who think a virgin gave birth to the son of God.

    I don't think so.

    Makes one think: Is it theorically and mathematically posibble to burn into an infinite number of hells for an eternal number of years?

    I'm already a confirmed Bokononist, but I really am attracted to the idea of a God with meatballs...

    Of course, but only if you have faith.

    It does beg the question though, of whether The Turtle could make a sandy beach so vast even She could not traverse it?

    I prefer my deity with marinara. A glass of Chianti would be nice.

    mac, beware the schism between devotees of Freshwater Turtle as opposed to Saltwater Turtle! Further, among the Freshwaters, the disagreements between the Hardshell and Softshell sects.

    I tend toward the Primitive Hardshell, myself...

    :D Laughing out loud!

    I like this idea since with my Italian heritage and pasta making skills, I'd be a Demi-goddess in my religion as well as here on MR!
