Its intent is to satire all theistic religions.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

A joke that some people take seriously and some people just don't get.

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

Satire: the use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people's stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues.

It's to make a point about unfalsifiability, and how the claim of a flying lump of spaghetti and meatballs creating the universe is no less valid than anything Christians believe...

In a way, the FSM is to demonstrate how atheists view belief in God... As something ludicrous and crazy.

It's a made up religion... wait a minute... It's a fake religion... wait... never mind, they're all made up and fake. Facepalm

It's just satire to make fun of religions. I use it like this:
Theist: Prove that god doesn't exist!
Me: Oh yeah? Prove that the Flying Spaghetti doesn't exist!! Thumbsup

its confusing for me because being in India I have very little knowledge of what goes on in the west, and catching up on it all is taking up a lot of time
