    “...And Tarvu created the Universe, and then the other Universe, and He was tired but happy. For He had created...creation.” (The Tarvunty, Qu*st*ons, 1-2, vv.2)


    Tarvuists Believe

    * Tarvu is our Lord God
    * There are two universes
    * The Tarvunty is the Holy Book
    * We should all "be nice"
    * Men and women are equal (to each other)
    * Tarvu`s Prayer should be said every day
    * Octopuses are holy creatures
    * Everyone has an invisible guardian from Universe A.

    --------------------------------------------------

    All lifted from Tarvu.com

    Now...to those of us with half a brain we know it`s a parody (Its acctually made up by British writers Robert Popper and Peter Serafinowicz who did the "Look around you" shows).

    That said it`s no weirder than any real religion.

    Is this for real? I`m too lazy to check if it`s legit.

    And no thanks. No offense to anyone, but religion in the hands of man is like potassium in the hands of 14-year-old boys who knows what it does when exposed to air or water.

    ...meaning I don`t think mankind needs religion.
