i’m sure i won’t get a response to this for a while

i’m sure i won’t get a response to this for a while, seeing as you are quite a busy man.
but honestly, where are your facts and such. i thought that this was certainly a mind game. i mean, wouldn’t you just be a hypocrite if it weren’t? i’m not criticizing you, i’d just honestly like to know.
if the fsm is really an idea just to show people how absolutely outlandish and insane they are, then i admire your work.
but if you truly believe a spaghetti monster is your god above all things, then i’m afraid i’d find you to be just as crazy as all the other people in this world living their life according to rules and standards that they have no real grasp of.
you’re either brilliant, or maybe just a complete ass.
again, i’m not criticizing you, i’m just very very intrigued by this whole thing.
thanks, and have a phenomenal day.

    Of course we believe! We are faithful followers of His Holy Noodle! Still, you are intrigued, so there’s hope for you yet. Can’t wait to meet up with you and all the friends you bring to the beer volcanoes!

    Dear Sarah,
    You have several responses already.
    But I must know: how did you not get that this is a satire? I mean, you did seem to think it was a possibility, but you also entertained the notion that there was an actual religion dedicated to a flying wad of spaghetti and meatballs. Please read the Open Letter.

    On the other hand, I shouldn’t get TOO down on you. People do some crazy sh!t.

    Please read the “About” section on this site Sara! Our FSM is verified and our religion is legitimate.
    Why do you have trouble with that? Why do you fight the thought of a Spaghetti God
    crazy?

    “……then i’m afraid i’d find you to be just as crazy as all the other people in this world living their life according to rules and standards that they have no real grasp of”

    No, we’re vastly different. Our supreme being allows “His” followers to indulge in individual opinion and to even question “His” very existence. The eight “Captain Mosey Pastafarian Commandments (or, as they are known to us: The Eight “I’d Really Rather You Didn’ts”) are not considered to be “rules and standards” of life by most followers.
    Our Divine Commandments have been passed to us, more in the form of a loose spiritual guide, rather than as a demand for stricit religious obedience. However, we feel that this does not, in any way, undermine the validity of our religion.
    So you see Sara, our religion and our beliefs are enlightened rather than “crazy”.

    I’ve heard from members of FSM that this isn’t a religon and that religon is the cause of all problems, but yet you guy WORSHIP a fucking noodle monster. If this isn’t a religion then i dont know what to call it. Don’t even try and call it Intellegent Design because it’s not. ITS A RELIGION!

    We don’t worship him he is more like a friend to us. For those who believe he is our best friend and mentor. The FSM is all loving and even forgives you for you rude comment.

    Have you never had a pasta based meal and thought to yourself half way through, “this is fantastic!” well if you embrass his noodleness then you will have that feeling all the time. As you can see it is more than a religion.

    ‘Don’t even try and call it Intellegent Design because it’s not. ITS A RELIGION!’
    .
    What a bizarre statement. It’s almost as though you think Intelligent Design *is* science.

  7. Nowtheworldhasmeaning says:

    Again to The “man”
    .
    There is a major difference in the FSM to other religions. The first is the FSM does not expect us to follow him using blind faith, in fact he encourages us to question belief in him or anything else, even promoting the teachings of evolution. See he is so confident that you will see the truth of his existance that he is willing for you to question every aspect of his noodly being.
    .
    The other thing that puts us far above other religions is the fact that we have a 30 day guarantee, “try our religion for 30 days and if you are not happy then you go back to your old religion. “
