More Pasta! More Pirates!

I was thinking... not very hard, but yeah.
I call myself an atheist as well as a pastafarian.

a⋅the⋅ist [ey-thee-ist]
A person who denies or disbelieves the existence of a supreme being or beings.

s⋅ta⋅far⋅ian [pä-stä-fär-ee-eyn]
A person who is a part of the parody religion, The Church of The FSM, whose deity is a giant, flying, spaghetti monster.

How can I be an atheist and be a part of a religion (that has a deity)? The answer is quite simple, the FSM considers himself a god, but he really isn't one. Gods are perfect, infallible, omniscient and omnipotent. He isn't even close. Have you read your bible (gospel of the FSM) lately? He f*cked up... a lot. He's still f*cking up to this day! Also, he's not the brightest pile of flying spaghetti. But we won't hold it against him... okay, yeah we will. Just consider him a demi-god for now, thereby making it logically tenable to be an atheist, and a pastafarian.
Hurray for pirates!
