I received this email from Mark Van den Borre. I think this is exactly what the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster is about. I am pleased beyond words that our religion has spread all around the world. -bobby
Yesterday, a friend and I did a tiny procession in front of the Evangelische Omroep (EO), Hilversum, the Netherlands. They believe in creation of the earth in six days. They refuse to recognise evolution theory as an extremely high probability scientific theory. That reflects into them cutting and modifying scenes from BBC animal documentaries.
Our goal was to try and have the Flying Spaghetti Monster touch the EO people with Its Noodly Appendages, so that they too could enjoy the benefits of pastafarianism. Unfortunately, that didn’t work out yet.
Maybe It was just too busy doing other stuff.
We received quite some press attention. We made national radio in Holland, video coverage on the national news television website, two big newspapers in Belgium, _the_ most popular news blog in the Dutch speaking community, and more.
