My belief system is torn between the Flying Spaghetti Monster and an infinite number of parallel Universes.

I have seen beguiling pictures of both, heard specious arguments in support of both, but have not come across conclusive evidence of either.

Surely we should teach our kids about both - or about neither.

Perhaps there is an infinite number of possible Flying Spaghetti Monsters and each one has its own universe?

Almost certainly, for is it not written:
"And his noodly appendages are multifold and manifold and they touch all of the disparate and infinite universes"
Or maybe I imagined that,sorry Wink

As the galaxy moves to the center of the cluster, it is stripped by hot gas thus creating a 260,000 light year long tail

It has been argued that the actual figure is nearer to 258,501.

I tried to be a Pastafarian once, but my Shoggoth ate it. Cool

It would take 5,318,008 light years to work it out on my 60 year old trusty friend. Lovely old thing that it is.
