this is a stupid internet meme

Published September 29th, 2008 by Bobby Henderson

This is a stupid Internet Meme that has somehow turned into some kind of religion. Ranting at them is not going to help.

Before you ask, yes, I am Christian and believed Jesus died on the cross for all of us because he loved us that much.

If I may ask, though, would the FSM willing give up his own son (if he even has one) for a multitude of people who hate him, despise him, aim to obliterate his very existence? Even if this act only saved one person?

    No! – This is a stupid religion that has somehow turned into some kind of an internet meme!

    Why would the FSM (pesto be upon him) need to give up anything to anybody? What kind of sense would that make? Your god seemed to need to sacrifice himself to himself to appease himself for the misdeeds of creatures that he knew in advance would commit “sins”. The FSM was just drunk when creating everything, and really isn’t that fussed about “evil”. Honestly – who hates pasta, anyway? His noodly embrace is reaching out to you – indulge!

    Ummm…. Why would the Great Noodly One need to sacrifice his son in a horrible and painful way? I mean, we’re all going to heaven, you non-Pastafarians’ll just get stale beer.

    I’m really confused by this one. Are you saying that god gave up his son for a multitude of people who hated him, despised him, wanted to obliterate his very existence? Why would he want to do that? How could these people hurt god? How would the death of his son change that? And, how could his death “save” anyone (and from what)?

    The answer for Pastafarians is really very easy. Quoting from the Flying Spaghetti Monster’s First I’d Really Rather You Didn’t, “If some people don’t believe in me, that’s okay. Really, I’m not that vain.” We are already OK with the FSM and so are you.

    Relax. Reread the answers that were posted before mine (if you ever did come back). Have some grog and give this a little more thought. You may find that you have been touched by His Noodly Appendage.

    PS Why is it that these hate mail posters almost never seem to come back? I can only think of Rachel and darkcitymedia and I haven’t seen them for a while either.

    What makes an internet meme any more “stupid” or insignificant than a meme which has been hanging around for the last 2000 years causing oppression and intolerance (witch-hunts, crusades, peresecution, etc)?
    BTW the great FSM is always generously giving his sons (and daughters) to multitudes of hungry people who “aim to obliterate his very existence”… what do you think you do when you eat a plate of pasta? don’t you obliterate a great mass of those made in the image of the FSM just to satisfy your bodily hunger…
    therefore it is abundantly clear that the FSM is more than willing give up his own sons (he has millions) for a multitude of people who aim to obliterate his very existence… and this act has saved not just one person, but hundreds of thousands of people from hunger… so it looks like the FSM goes one better than the stingy old christian god (who only sacrificed one son), dont it?
    as regards those who “hate him and despise him”, they’d better follow another god, like the swimming crumpet monster, or whatever turns them on!
    PS you too Mr Crystos are free to believe whatever you want, but as you youself say “Ranting at them is not going to help”… you dont like the FSM? go elsewhere and leave us to our own “stupid” meme!

    Oh yeah, and that xian didn’t miss the point…they missed the line, the shape, heck they missed the whole page, as I notice that most of them tend to do. May the Great Meaty Balls see fit to reach out and enlighten them and touch them with the Great Noodly Appendage.
