Is this serious or is it just making fun of religion?
No, it's not a serious religion, and yes, for sure it's making fun of religion... but with a serious aim. The founders of Pastafarianism (see the venganza link in Paul's post) are making a very serious point about the push from elements of the American religious right to teach Creationism/Intelligent Design as part of the school science curriculum, in an attempt to give their beliefs equal weight with evidence based real science.The Followers of the Flying Spaghetti Monster are attempting, in order to point out the absurdity of the scheme, to get their religion included too on the basis that there's as much supporting evidence for their "beliefs" as those of the ID proponents.
No it's (in the words of Al Gore) super serial. I'm sure Richard Dawkins will be most proud!
