How can you know God is a FSM

Published April 15th, 2009 by Bobby Henderson

How can you know that God is a F.S.M. if he is invisible? If he is invisible how can you see him?

What is said on this website, in your books and amongst yourselves doesn’t change what the Bible and the real word of God says. Gods word is like gravity, just because people don’t believe in it doesn’t mean it’s not true and doesn’t mean there aren’t consequences to jumping off of a cliff. Someone can easily say “I don’t believe in gravity because I can’t see it, etc..because it’s an old belief….” but that doesn’t change the fact that it is there. This is like Gods laws for all of humanity.

Have any of you ever seen your own brain? Does that mean that it isn’t there? Have any of you ever seen your heart? Does that mean that it isn’t inside your body still beating? Have any of you ever seen your soul? Does that meen that it isn’t there?

The fact is that we do have souls and I heard it put this way “If God did not exist than man would create one” and this is what has been done with the F.S.M. group. You have created a God and the Bible calls this idol worship. Often times groups in the Bible would create an idol to worship because they couldn’t see or hear or touch God.

God’s fingerprints are on all of creation and more and more scientists and peole are recognizing this alike. Antony Flew, one of the worlds most famous atheists has recently said that there is a God and one who is intelligent. The Bible does say clearly that man was created in his image (Genisis 1:27) so we know that God is not a flying spaghetti monster.

On another note, God’s word was written because He loves us and showed his unending love for us through his son Jesus Christs death on the cross and ultimatley, His resurrection from the grave. Romans 10:9 says that “If you declare with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Salvation comes through Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ alone (John 14:6).

I would recommend that anyone who is a follower of this group to read not only the Bible but a series of books from a former atheist called “The Case for Christ” and “the Case for Creator” and from there you can draw your own conclusions. If you are truly seeking for answers in life than I would encourage all of you to search for those answers and don’t just give up by creating your own religion/idol.

Romans 3:23 says that “all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God”. That means you, me and everyone else in the entire world.

Think about it, if all the people in the world were on a boat in the middle of the ocean and the ship was going down and there were no lifeboats, everyone would need a Savior no matter how hard they tried to save themselves. That savior is Jesus Christ. Every other religion in the world is saved through works and Christianity is the only one where we are saved by our faith alone. Once a person proclaims that Jeesus is Lord it is up to that person to live his/her life for Him.

I hope that this has been some help to all of you.

    Wow CD you really are a nut aren’t you. “If God did not exist than man would create one”, perhaps the xtian god is man-made! Flew is 86 now, is said to be mentally troubled, and has also stated “that his God is not the God of any of the revealed religions”. There is absolutely NO evidence for any god. Why don’t we humans just realise that we don’t know everything yet. I am sure, over time, science will answer all the questions we raise which are currently in the realm of philosophy.

    Wow, this one’s got pretty much the whole plethora of tired, clichéd, and irrelevant Christian arguments!

    First of all, we know that He is an invisible Flying Spaghetti Monster, because, like any self-respecting religion, we have PROPHETS and GOSPEL. It’s rather a lot like the way you now that God’s an old bloke with a beard, and that the ten commandments are his idea.

    And then, the ever popular you-can’t-see-it-but-you-can-feel-it argument! Very original. Sadly (for you), God is nothing like gravity. Gravity is a measurable, predictable, laws-of-fundamental-physics-compliant force. God is by definition ephemeral and undetectable. It’s a ridiculous comparison. The FSM, on the other hand, is quite a lot like the wind. I can’t see it, but I can feel it, and sometimes it smells nice.

    I’m not even going to bother with the brain and heart compared to God fallacy. It’s been laughed at and overruled countless times already.

    Next up, that jewel of a line “If God did not exist, man would be compelled to create him.” I hate to break it to you, sweetie (actually, that’s a lie, I don’t hate it at all, I quite like it), but that’s an argument on our side, not yours. We’re by no means the first ones to create a deity. Ours is just made from fresher ingredients than yours.

    Antony Flew is one voice among many very clever people, and he was very possibly going a bit senile when he changed his tune from atheism to deism. Even if he wasn’t, he still didn’t become a Christian, only a deist, and he is definitely in the minority among atheists to even go that far.

    Then we have a lot of dross about how we are all miserable sinners and need to accept Jesus. This is really rather like telling us to be good or the easter bunny won’t come. And if we are all in a shipwreck, let’s eat some chocolate eggs, because they’ll help, just like Jesus will. (Although probably rather less than our piratical life skills learnt from Pastafarianism will.)

    I think the whole Christian thought system in ingrained in some of you so thoroughly that you fail to realize, if one rejects the original premise – We’re all miserable hopeless sinners – then the whole shebang and shebible is moot. We’re not miserable and hopeless, and most of us are even fairly decent people, and so we don’t need a Messiah any more than I need a lifeboat in my 18th floor apartment.

    Anyway, you’re not helping anyone, not even yourself, and in addition, you need to learn to spell.

    Have a noodlicious day.

    Ours is a manmade god, but so is yours. Your evidence, the bible, was written by stoneage desert dwelling nomads who`s relevance to todays world diminishes by the day. I enjoyed reading your post and appreciate the civil manner in which you state your case.

    Dear CD,

    You obviously have not read The Gospel. While the FSM is usually invisible, he does appear to people occasionally. You will even find evidence of his apparitions on Youtube.

    Since you mention gravity, there is also an explanation of gravity in The Gospel. Basically, it is His noodly appendages that keep us on the ground. Incidentally, this is the reason why an increase in population results in taller people. But I won’t explain further…I’ll leave you to read the truth in The Gospel of the FSM.

    The Christian Bible may say that man was created in his image (what about women?), but we know that the one true Gospel says that actually, “we were created in His IDEAL image: that of the Pirate. Since then, we’ve come to resemble other people’s Gods” (The Gospel of the FSM – Unified Spaghetti Theory page 55).

    And yes, we do know that God IS the Flying Spaghetti Monster. You will several proofs…just read The Gospel.

  5. Dan says:

    Hmmm, I think this is fake as the arguments are too silly. On the off chance it’s not…

    Comparing God to gravity or other things we can’t see is a poor comparison. We can see the effects of gravity and brains, we can’t see any effects from God.

    Quoting the bible as fact is pointless without any proof it’s accurate.

    The boat comparison is very poor. If we were all in a sinking boat we’d most likely drown, with no saviour. Let’s drown in style!

    Anthony Flew is no longer an atheist but so what. He was right and he’s now wrong, he holds no authority over me. Even then, he does not follow the bible literally and has said “I’m thinking of a God very different from the God of the Christian and far and away from the God of Islam, because both are depicted as omnipotent Oriental despots, cosmic Saddam Husseins”

    Sorry CD, your arguments are poor.

    Cd…

    First off, your premise is flawed from the start. The “bible” (“God’s word”) that you are quoting from is a collection of fiction (fic⋅tion/ˈfɪkʃən/ [fik-shuhn] –noun
    the class of literature comprising works of imaginative narration, esp. in prose form). I have included the definition, just in case you do not care to look it up.

    This codex of letters, prose, ancient law, and genealogy tables was written by men who claim divine inspiration has been translated into several different languages and back again by scribes, who were working from memory a good portion of the time. As often as not, the actual words used in those translations varied from author to author.

    Then you have the “Church” which has been deciding for centuries what parts of those “scriptures” are “actually the word of God” and which parts are not, the most recognized version of this is known as the “King James” bible. Ever hear of the Apocrypha and the Pseudepigrapha?

    Why should we accept your god and your “scriptures” as true when the only difference between your deity and Zeus, Jupiter, Odin, Shangdi and countless others is simply the number of people who currently choose to believe those writings?

    RAmen.

    Being able to walk on water, Jesus better darn well be there as a savior. I just hope he has the upper body strength to hold all the passengers. Or maybe he has the Flash’s super speed and can rescue them all one by one.

    No help at all, actually. Can’t you think of anything more useful to do with your life ?
