Pastafarianism vs. Christianity

Published October 14th, 2007 by Bobby Henderson

I received this email from Pastafarian Chelsea:

The following is direct quote by Mark Coppenger, a pastor who teaches at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, courtesy of the article by Dan Vergano in USA Today, Spaghetti Monster is noodling around with faith.

“I’m happy to say I think FSM hurts the evolutionists’ program since, by mocking the Christian tradition … it reinforces the correct impression that there is genuine contempt for biblical faith in that camp. Besides, the parody is lame, and there are few things more encouraging than cheap shots from one’s opponents.”

I’m sorry if Christians find the belief that the Flying Spaghetti Monster created the universe “lame,” but –correct me if I’m wrong- Christians believe that a cosmic Jewish zombie can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him that you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat an apple of discernment from a magical tree. And they think the idea that a decrease in pirates caused global warming is ridiculous?

The best lesson learned in life is to challenge the limitations of our mental capacities. If knowledge is a sin, let us burn in hell for eternity with the satisfaction that we aren’t superstitous, ignorant bigots.

I think Chelsea makes a good point. Also, I think that Pastafarianism has grown much larger than a response to the ID-evolution debate.

    “How about you buy yourself a Bible and start reading it from the beginning, then you will understand…”

    This has to be the funniest post I’ve seen all week.

      Agreed.

      Funny how many different types of “true” christians there are.

      And yes, I am disrespectful towards religion. What’s the surprise there? I’m supposed to play nice with the retards in case I offend them while they’re condemning me to hell?

    “You said to correct you if you were wrong, and that I shall do. No true Christian believes that they will live forever. Jesus Christ, or the “Jewish zombie” as referred to him by, which by the way is down right disrespectful and insulting of you, he didn’t say you would live forever, he said you would have eternal life. How about you buy yourself a Bible and start reading it from the beginning, then you will understand…instead of criticizing”

    Thankyou! Now it all makes perfect sense. Yes, the phrase ‘jewish zombie’ probably is disrespectful and insulting. If you don’t want to hold beliefs that people are disrespectful about, hold rational beliefs. If you going to believe drivel, accept your beliefs being insulted. As you would have to if you were a peer-reviewed scientist.
