It appears one of the major tenets of Pastafarianism is false. For those of you outside of the loop, Pastafarianism is a religion that believes that life was created by the Flying Spaghetti Monster, and that there is an inverse relation between global temperature and the number of pirates in the world.
Lately, we have seen both an increase in mean global temperature and the prevelence of pirates. Can this be a sign of the end times? Or could the Flying Spaghetti Monster be testing our faith in his noodly appendage?
