I stumbled upon this site just now

Published January 13th, 2008 by Bobby Henderson

I stumbled upon this site just now and I’ve read most of the information here…I have to admit that it really disturbs me. I COMPLETELY AGREE that religion should not be taught in a science class at public schools (this debate is going on where I live too). However, I am really offended by the way the Open Letter and the other information completely makes fun of Christianity and the arguments that some Christians have made for intelligent design. Also, the T-shirt designs are blatantly disrespectful of Christianity. As a Christian myself, I find it very saddening that God has become replaceable by an imaginary ball of pasta in the minds of an apparently large number of people.

I only ask this: Please keep your minds and hearts OPEN to God and anything He tells you. God is with you always, and He wants you to know Him and follow His path for your life. Just make sure, as attractive as the FSM-god may be, that you are not worshiping him and placing him ahead of the GOD who is REAL and alive today.

Any comments are appreciated, and may God bless you all.

    @MV (and TimSmood): I completely agree with you about churches that really do waste money that could be used to help people. I just didn’t like the wording of the first statement, that churches “waste” money, because churches also help people. But some have gone overboard and I don’t think Jesus would be proud of that.

    @Miketti: “Did you miss the whole point? There are too many possible ideas to be open to them all.”
    Note that I didn’t ask for anyone to be open to Christianity, I asked you to be open to the possibility that there is a God. That’s not one person’s crazy theory, but a belief that way more than half the world shares. Civilizations all over the world and all through history have believed in God(s), even when they had no contact with each other. I’m not saying their religions were great (human sacrifices aren’t valued in Christianity) but that it’s not just an obscure theory. I don’t think you should be open to everything, but if that many people believe in something, isn’t it worth considering, at least? And if you have seen evidence of something, of course you shouldn’t go against that evidence just because someone else thinks it’s wrong. “Merely having an open mind is nothing; the object of opening a mind, as of opening the mouth, is to shut it again on something solid.” –G.K. Chesterton

    @TimSmood: “After all, religions do not have a monopoly on compassion or love for one another as they would have many believe (i.e. if you’re not for us, you must be against us and therefore evil).”
    Actually, Jesus said the opposite. And as for evidence…go to proofthatgodexists.org. (I didn’t create the website and I don’t agree with everything it says, but there actually is proof that God exists.)
    .
    @Kira: I’m sorry to cause you pain, but maybe it’s a good thing for you to know that there are intelligent and reasonable Christians.
    “…it really pains me to see you struggling to make excuses for an allegedly perfect entity that, if it existed, wouldn’t require neither excuses nor your protection.”
    You’re right, God doesn’t need my excuses or protection. I just don’t like to see people either deliberately ignoring or openly bashing Him, and when I do, I want to respond. Does the FSM need your protection when people say stupid things about him? If I don’t respond to part of a post, it either means that I agree with it, or as you said, I can’t refute it. I figure you’d rather I didn’t waste my time trying. About referring to God as He…I guess my response could have been confusing. If you want me to try and explain it, I’d be happy to, but if you’re just trying to cut down everything I say, then I won’t bother.
    “Yes. And if they don’t give it freely He, in his infinite mercy, tortures them forever!”
    When have I said this? (I haven’t.)
    .
    I’ll respond to the rest later.

    It’s not blatantly disrespectful. It’s flattering your religion. So shut up and be polite.

    Your god is not real, or alive today. Prove me wrong and I’ll convert to Christianity in a heartbeat. Good luck.
