Hindu questions about FSM

Published October 17th, 2007 by Bobby Henderson

Some Questions sent by Ram. I am putting it in this section just because I want to (maybe you guys can help me answer his questions):

Iam a student. Iam from india. I am a Hindu. I am quite happy with my religion and respect all other religons. But your Spaghetti monster? I don’t understand. i visited your website, but it says so little of your religion.

i want to know the foolowing things?

What or Who is this Spaghetti monster?

What is this monster up to? what does he want? (according to you)

How did he contact you?

Does he Talk?

Do you have any proof? if show please show me.

Why do you use ‘ironic words’? Preachers don’t really use such words. they are polite and atleast sound enlightened one. you sound more like a minister demanding for votes.

This monster of yours is made of pasta?

Is this monster a good monster or is he spreading evil?

Why a pirate ship? pirates do have 99.9 % dna similar to humans. well, my great great grand father had 99.999999% DNA similar to humans. so what? What i mean to ask is Pirates were evils, they plundered and killed. if at all they are extinct today. it is cool. with time they will. everything will. But why pirates . Why?

I believe in God, sir and i have no intentions in hurting you, but it is silly to believe in what is not so clear. I don’t really believe in scientific evidences, but yes i do have my own way of finidng things out. some sort of spirituality involved.
Coincidently, Indian lores have many written records of universal birth that resembles to big bang theory. they have perfect calculations of earth’s rev. and rot. all this was written more than a thousands years which also includes physics, maths, geo, medicine and spirituality. But there is no mention of Your monster. you know and the world knows Hindus have the longest written history and records than any one else. Not even eygptians. And all of them are accurate till date, some are under research. American scientist have also discovered a man-made birdge dated thousands of yrs ago called ram-sethu (in india) which also has written records in ancient books, including the man who built it. if it is all this. How come they miss your monster?

Iam not preaching my religion Sir. please answer my question. i shall me thankful to you as my questions haunt me than the ghosts? Ghosts? don’t dont haunt me at all !

God bless you

I would like to extend a handshake

Published October 16th, 2007 by Bobby Henderson

from tony:

I would like to extend a handshake for this incredibly imaginative satire on ID that you have created and although I am a Christian and hold my own beliefs about God and creation. However, being a current engineering student, I completly agree with your views on science and how it should be taught in the classroom, however crudly stated they may be at times. With that I would like to extend a quote from my satire teacher from highschool that he said a few years back: “Satire is meant to seperate those who get the joke and the jackasses.”

Here’s to putting up with those jackasses some more. Good work. I hope to buy one of those sweet shirts soon.

Greetings and Yarr

Published October 14th, 2007 by Bobby Henderson

Greetings and Yarr, Mr. Henderson.

I have realized I have been too confused to see the light and have recently decided to reform from my heathen ways as an atheist. I found light in the holy FSM while making a bowl of lime & shrimp ramen at approximately 1:36 AM. I recalled a thread on a forum speaking of FSM and His Noodly Appendage, and it all seemed to make sense.

I have now become a child of FSM and graciously accept His Noodly Appendage and all His glory into my life. However, I have a few questions I couldn’t find in your marvelous, eye-opening site.
1) Is an eye patch or hat required every day or just every friday? It will be hard to explain to my English teacher why I am wearing a divine head-piece every morning.

2) Are we required to wear such clothing in all posed photography? If so I will need a signed letter from the prophet speaking of His holiness and need of such headgear for my school.

3) Do I have your permission to pass out FSM pendants, rings and brochures around my school to spread the good word? I recently discovered that a fairly accurate model of His Noodlyness can be made out of 22 gauge wire and 4 beads (2 copper, 2 silver), and it gives me something to keep with me whenever I have moments of doubt or weakness.

Thank you, and may His Noodly Appendages be with you.

FSM bless,
Myranda (Yarrr)

While I was learning about this wonderful religion

Published October 14th, 2007 by Bobby Henderson

While I was learning about this wonderful religion of yours, and while I was reading about how the number of pirates affected the climate, there was a flash of light. There standing in my room, was our Spaghetti God himself. He told me something that would allow us another chance to rectify the global warming issue. First, He told me that marriages were actually just between two or more people, regardless of sexual preference. Marriage actually does not have to be between a man and a woman. He told me that every time we allow such marriages to be legalized in a new country, the rate of temperature increase decreases. The more countries legalize it and the more marriages of the same sex that we have, temperature increase will slow down to the point where there will be a reversal.

Thank you for leading me the proper way.

Published October 12th, 2007 by Bobby Henderson

Thank you for leading me the proper way. I have finally realized what the true meaning of life is! I have stumbled upon your site and received the noodley grace that I have needed all along. Thank you!
-Luke

P.S. After I’m done with school, I’m becoming a pirate!

Good luck, Luke. Welcome to Pastafarianism.

I’m a Catholic.

Published October 7th, 2007 by Bobby Henderson

I’m a Catholic.
But before you get ready for hate-mail, wait a minute.
Because really I think you’re brilliant. Not that me thinking you’re brilliant is that high a compliment.
Teaching ID in schools as science is completely ridiculous. No religion should be taught in schools.

Facts are important.

I just want you to know that not all catholics are … um… crazy.
But something to consider, they do believe that their religion is true so in their eyes they are merely spreading the truth, not hurting anyone.

May you be touched by his noodly appendages,
or god bless you but that’s probably a bit hypocritcal at this point,
Allison

you rule

Published October 6th, 2007 by Bobby Henderson

You rule. I still don’t understand how people can think this idea is stupid, or obviously wrong. There is exactly the same amount of scientific evidence for FSM as there is for any other god, probably more in some cases. The intelligence to make these connections requires higher brainpower than most of the people in the “hate-mail” section of your website have. I am now converted from a proud atheist to a proud pastafarian. Thank you for showing me the true light and may you be touched by his noodly appendage.

In praise of an alternate creation theory

Published January 7th, 2007 by Bobby Henderson

logo_torontostar.gif

Leslie Scrivener has written an excellent article, In praise of an alternate creation theory, in the Toronto Star.

From the department of one scientific theory is as good as another, comes the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

The theory goes like this: the Earth and all living things were created by a Supreme Being, the Flying Spaghetti Monster, and though there are no witnesses to creation, there are written accounts of it.

In time, men and women heard of the spaghetti monster and came to worship him. And as the word spread, a gospel was written and churches were established in his name.

And artists, inspired by his word, drew his image – a tangled mass of pasta, with two generous meatballs, and googly eyes protruding from stalks.

Since the Flying Spaghetti Monster was revealed in 2005, millions have seen his image or read about him and his teachings, on the Internet site www.venganza.org and also in a book published last year, The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

Read the article HERE.

I made a spaghetti monster tree topper and took a picture with it for our “Happy Birthday Frank Sinatra Party”….you can see Frank’s ornament in the picture. I have also begun small spaghetti ornaments. I will let you know if those are ever finished.

happy Holiday season everyone

Published December 1st, 2006 by Bobby Henderson

Happy Holidays!

A Holiday message from me:

It’s that time of year again. Many will be celebrating Christmas, some Hanukkah, some Kwanzaa, whatever. Pastafarians will be celebrating our holiday, named “Holiday“. And it’s not a specific date so much as it is the Holiday season, itself.

I hate to go into specifics as to what and how Pastafarians celebrate/worship. The rituals and ceremonies are not important. What is important is that Pastafarians reject dogma and formalism (the emphasis on form over content). So, there are no specific, handed-down-from-above sort of specific rituals or ceremonies. Pastafarianism is more of a state of mind than a set of rules to follow. So enjoy the Holiday season, and celebrate it in a way that is pleasing to you and those around you.

That said, I would like to point out how much Pastafarianism has spread in a remarkably short amount of time. A few years ago, you’d be wished a “Merry Christmas” by everyone. Now, by our schools, businesses, goverment, on tv – everywhere – what do you hear? We’re not offered the Christian greeting “Merry Christmas“, but instead a happy “Holiday” season. Holiday, is of course OUR Pastafarian holiday, and it’s amazing to see how it’s been accepted, embraced even, by so many people.

Consider this: the Washington Post reports that a few people are upset with the White House “Christmas” cards, because they fail to mention Christmas. Instead, and not surprisingly based on President Bush’s presumed closet-Pastafarianism, the 1.4 million recipients of the White House “Christmas” card are wished a happy “Holiday season”. Say what you will about our president, but to send a Pastafarian propaganda message to over a Million people, in defiance of the Christian Evangelists who are supposedly his base – that took a huge set. I was so Touched that I took the time to write Mr. Bush a note. Click to read it, if you want.

So, that’s all. Have a safe and happy Holiday season. Remember that Flying Spaghetti Monster merchandise is not only fashionable, but also serves as propaganda.

Purchase the Gospel

An elaborate spoof on Intelligent Design, The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster is neither too elaborate nor too spoofy to succeed in nailing the fallacies of ID. It's even wackier than Jonathan Swift's suggestion that the Irish eat their children as a way to keep them from being a burden, and it may offend just as many people, but Henderson puts satire to the same serious use that Swift did. Oh, yes, it is very funny. -- Scientific American.
