    Last Thursdayism is the belief that the universe was created Last Thursday. It was originally created as a discussion point in philosophy, but has faded into obscurity and been claimed by the Internet, meaning it was taken to some odd places.

    It has become a phenomenon among Last Thursdayists to question people's beliefs upfront. This has led to general distrust of them, as some believe last Thursdayists actually believe the universe was created Last Thursday. After all, it's possible. But most Last Thursdayists are just philosophers with an excuse. A really good one.

    So thoughts? Is it no different than the Flying Spaghetti Monster, or does it hold some sort of worth? I'd love to discuss this, as I myself LOVE Last Thursdayism.

    Personally I think it's worth more, seeing as it was created as a focus for philosophical questions and not merely as some parody of religion.
