Why should this Agnes Buchan get all the $$$? As they say in Australia, "Unfair, Unfair". It's time for me to get religion again and enter Agnes' market.

I'm thinking tomatoes. Faith like Tomatoes. Way fewer carbohydrates. Packed with vitamins. A heart-warming tale of a barren woman, a barren veggie patch, faith, redemption and ultimate salvation. Suitable for the whole family.

I'll work on a plot outline. Suggestions welcome.

Google her if you're really interested, she just pisses me off solidly. She's Angus's female alter ego. Preaches to all the good little wives to bow down to their husbands and annoint them with oil as they are the "head" of the home and one should be subservient to him.

Had a "worthy woman" conference on the 8th and spoke to 7000 women at R175 a pop and told them to be subservient to their husbands cos Eve came second to Adam and was fashioned from his rib (huh ya), but she conveniently neglect to mention Lillith.

You like women that offer no mental stimulation? That agrees with absolutely everything you say? That offer no challenge or resistance, nor any input or opinion? You ask her if she wants to go on holiday and she replies "whatever you deem right oh-great-and-worthy-one?" - Where do you feel like going? "anywhere you might want to oh-great-and-worthy-one".  Huh? Sounds horrible.

From my point of view, I'd think that would be a soul-destroying relationship. Nothing nicer than a lovely difference of opinion and lenghty debate with your partner with the understanding that you'll end up to agree to disagree.  Grin

Selling existing faith is the small money. Go big Like L.Ron Hubbard and just create an entirely new business.

Jip, Scientology is the second largest growing religion in Africa, second only after the Catholic church.

Ironic actually, where the RCC promotes condomless sex, the schientologists promotes faith healing, so the one side encourages the diseases and the other side kills 'em off. Sorta justice in a sick way.  Tongue

I'm actually a bit of a fan of Scientology in a strange way (while at the same time being appalled by the damage it does).

Firstly I suppose because I like science fiction so I find a religion based on science fiction pretty cool (even if it is crap science fiction, beggars can't be choosers).

But more importantly because it is such a great way to point out to believers that their "way of knowing" is nonsense. I mean if you can accept Jesus on faith, why not the imprisoned souls of space aliens? Just because it sounds ridiculous to you, doesn't mean you can condemn others for believing it, if that's how you think knowledge can be obtained. Scientology is like the FSM, but with genuine believers (apologies to any committed Pastafarians out there, but we know you don't really mean it).

Oh and rwenzori, much as I applaud your idea, I think Faith has to be a root vegetable. Unseen until the harvest and all that. How bout Faith Like A Carrot. Faith that gives you better night vision Smiley

The Flying Spaghetti Monster (FSM) is the deity of the parody religion[1][2] the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster or Pastafarianism.[3] Created in 2005 by Oregon State physics graduate Bobby Henderson, it was originally intended as a satirical protest against the decision by the Kansas State Board of Education to require the teaching of intelligent design as an alternative to evolution in public schools.

Mmm,
The FSM, Reformed FSM and rwenzori's tomato church could perhaps form an ecumenical society where the wives anoint their hubbies with spaghetti bolognese.

Great plan! Rwenzori's Discount Cheep-Cheep Pasta Emporium will offer special deals on said spaghetti.

BTW is "ecumenical" a type of cheese?

Actually it is a type of antipasta made from the holes in the macaroni.   It pops into and out of existence like no-stamp collections and is popular with spirits.

Tweefo, I love that image you have used as your avatar. Awesome. The "Hand Of God", teehee. Or maybe the hand of the big blue guy from Watchmen.

No but seriously, I am so grateful to be alive at a time when we are able to explore the universe like this, and be able to know just how immense and beautiful it is. Hooray for the Hubble Space Telescope, I can't wait for the new space telescope to come online. Go science!

Sorry to derail this very serious thread, please feel free to return to discussion of our glorious FSM, and his beneficent manifestation in the form of pasta and antipasta.

Most of which presumably annihilated each other shortly after the Big Bang.
