fsm appears in Israeli painting

Published February 15th, 2008 by Bobby Henderson

The FSM has recently revealed Himself in an Israeli high school through a painting depicting the pre-creation state of the universe as portrayed in Genesis 1:2.

The high school students were given the assignment of creating an artistic work related to one of the stories from the Book of Genesis. A couple of students chose to paint their interpretation of the appearance of the universe before the biblical Creation (or, as literally translated from Hebrew, “chaos”). The noodly Lord was easily spotted in the painting only after it was hanged on the corridor wall. The work’s creators claim that the painting did not originally include the FSM:

“We didn’t paint Him, I swear. I have no idea how He got there,” one of them says.

This divine act of the Flying Spaghetti Monster has made many students recognize His existence, and many have converted to Pastafarianism. Some of the recently converted Pastafarians even believe that Israel is in fact the Holy Land of Pastafarianism, and they are already contemplating methods to eliminate the all Jews, Muslims and Christians in Israel who won’t agree to convert.

The FSM’s message is obvious. For many years the state of Israel has forced the Jewish religion and its studies upon Israeli students of Jewish descent by making it a compulsory subject for receiving a matriculation certificate. The school system in Israel starts teaching students the concepts of the Old Testament when they are very young and innocent, and every student must continue studying these religious stories, regardless of his beliefs. The Holy FSM, clearly, just wishes for Israeli students to be taught the true religion, Pastafarianism.

May we all be touched by His noodly appendage,
RAmen.

    Please, first buy the gospel and read the 8 I’d-really-rather-you-didn’ts. Elimination of non-believers is not what the FSM would want! Offer them some good pasta instead.

    I find your tongue firmly in cheek outlook encouraging.

    As long as you don’t resort to violence. Let everyone see the truth of His Noodly Appendages for themselves.

    The fact that His Noodliness has been spotted in Israel is indeed a positive development, however…

    “Some of the recently converted Pastafarians even believe that Israel is in fact the Holy Land of Pastafarianism, and they are already contemplating methods to eliminate the all Jews, Muslims and Christians in Israel who won’t agree to convert.”

    Please, let’s not follow this path. There is no need for a Pasta-Inquisition or Noodly Crusade. This is exactly the kind of behavior that religious fundamentalist nut-cases around the world advocate. This is the sort of thing that leads to religious extremism and repression, which is not what the FSM is all about. May his noodly appendage bring peace to the Middle East with its touch.

    WHOAH! Please refrain from eliminating the non- and/or other-believers. Pastafarianism is a peaceful system, more akin to Jainism than those others you mentioned, and as such, opposed to the sort of Ausrotten you seem to be advocating. Please pick up a copy of The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, and become one with our noodly master. Oh, and welcome.

    Wrong, very wrong. What happened to the tolerance that pastafarians have prided themselves on for centuries past?

    Miraculous indeed! I’m not so sure however, that His Noodeliness would want Israel to be occupied soley by Pastafarians. First, it would be a mighty small population since so few of us have seen the light and would want to move there. Second, I would think the FSM would rather pick someplace like Jamaica or Hawaii for a homeland.

    The Holy City of Pastafarianism can’t be Jeruzalem. It’s Bologna, so obvious!
