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.
Cheers,

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 ;)

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.
Oh, sod it.

I think it's safe to assume you won't come across it in your lifetime... ;)

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.
