+ - American Academy of Religon to discuss FSM

Submitted by sbillard
sbillard (568017) writes "The American Academy of Religion is set to discuss the Flying Spaghetti Monster (FSM) at their annual meeting this weekend in San Diego. The FSM, now a college campus celebrity and internet sensation was first brought to us in a letter to the Kentucky school board after they mandated consideration for Intelligent Design in Science class curriculum. While largely acknowledged as a joke, the academy will discuss some of the legitimate aspects of FSM as a religion, and as an adequate criticism of religion. What is religion? When does a clan or cult officially cross the line and become a religion? At what point does religious belief stop being beneficial to an individual or to a society and start to cause more problems than it solves?
