The Flying Spaghetti Monster is the deity of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. The religion is also known as Pastafarianism. Bobby Henderson coined the FSM name in a satirical letter protesting the Kansas State Board of Education decision allowing the teaching of intelligent design as an alternative to evolution in public school science classes.
I firmly believe an individual’s answer depends on their belief system, the values they hold and the experiences which impacted them the most. The meaningfulness of things which etch themselves into their being, sometimes even harmful exposures, these provide for the variety of answers that can be expected.

At the end of the story, Elam states “But I thought why none of them said: “GOD. Or in these hard days, maybe ‘Patient’ would be the correct answer.” This line is what got me thinking, as would any statement about the existence of a god. It prompted my comment on Laleh’s blog.
I don’t think it’s god. In my mind, what is better than everything is imagination. When sad or disappointed in reality, we can escape for some joy. When inspired, imagination creates. It gives us room to breathe when we’re feeling oppressed, and awe when it’s lacking in our reality. So yeah, it’s not god.
