Frisbeetarianism is the belief that when you die, your soul goes up on the
roof and gets stuck. - George Carlin

"Frisbeetarianism is a parody religion of obscure origins. The basic tenet
is that when you die, your soul goes up on a roof and you can't get it down.
A lesser known aspect is the holy event known as "The Ascension", which is
where someone comes along with a ladder and collects all the souls.

Frisbeetarianism is similar in spirit to Pastafarianism, but has not gained
nearly the same popularity. It is a fairly obvious portmanteau of
Presbyterianism and Frisbee; one of the most common fates for a Frisbee is
to end up out of reach on a roof or other high object. However, the worst
possible punishment that could happen to a frisbee is to be cracked on
impact with the roof and later collected and burned. The best thing that
could happen to a frisbetarian is to be collected and join the great
ultimate game in the sky. This religion is most popular among players of
Frisbee-related sports, such as Ultimate and Disc Golf.

Origins

Frisbeetarianism was created in a 1975 skit from The Jim Stafford Show.
George Carlin is also credited with inventing it. In his column in the San
Francisco Chronicle in the early 1980s, Herb Caen also mentioned this
offshoot sect.
James Sherman, the Chicago, Illinois playwright, revived the joke of this
mock religion in his 2002 play The Old Man's Friend as some comic relief in
the context of a daughter reconciling with her father when the doctor
diagnoses her dad as having cancer and gives him six months to live."

Now Pastafarianism is based on

"The Flying Spaghetti Monster is the deity of a parody religion called the
Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. The religion was founded in 2005 by
Oregon State University physics graduate Bobby Henderson to protest against
the decision by the Kansas State Board of Education to require the teaching
of intelligent design as an alternative to biological evolution. In an open
letter sent to the education board, Henderson professes belief in a
supernatural Creator called the Flying Spaghetti Monster, which resembles
spaghetti and meatballs. He furthermore calls for the "Pastafarian" (a
portmanteau of pasta and Rastafarian) theory of creation to be taught in
science classrooms.

Due to its recent popularity and media exposure, the Flying Spaghetti
Monster is used by atheists and agnostics (known by Pastafarians as
"spagnostics") as a modern version of Russell's teapot"

According to the Pastafarian belief system, pirates are "absolute divine
beings" and the original Pastafarians.Their image as "thieves and outcasts"
is misinformation spread by Christian theologians in the Middle Ages.
Pastafarianism says that they were in fact "peace-loving explorers and
spreaders of good will" who distributed candy to small children.

The inclusion of pirates in Pastafarianism was part of Henderson's original
letter to the Kansas School Board. It illustrated that correlation does not
equal causation. Henderson put forth the argument that "global warming,
earthquakes, hurricanes, and other natural disasters are a direct effect of
the shrinking numbers of pirates since the 1800s." A chart accompanying the
letter shows that as the number of pirates decreased, global temperatures
increased; this is a farcical demonstration of how statistically

Roxy knows a lot about Frisbees ... she hides them so I can't throw them for
her any more!
She is far too young and I am far too old to know anything about the Flying
Spaghetti monster!

That's if you're "good."

If you're bad, your soul lands in a neighbor's yard to be savagely
chewed and mangled by their slobbering pitbull.
