I’m not going to go all apeshit

Published January 8th, 2010 by Bobby Henderson

I’m ont going to go all ape shit on you because I’m a firm beliver of people chosing their own religions or lack of one. HOWEVER I do find if ofencive when you make a mockery of other religions, be it christianity, buddhism, judaism, etc. so I think it fair that you respect other people’s belifes and not posting material that INTENTIONALY offends other people,

thank you.

    Thank you for support in allowing us to choose our own religion, it shows a major step forward from the days when you used to treat non-belivers with the “judas cradle” – which i would like to add, I find very offensive.

    Well, thanks for not going all ape shit on us. I think it’s offensive when people are looked down upon for not praying, as in the military or in school. Also, keep fairy tales out of government.

    Let’s grade this one!
    Profanity – only one.
    Gratuitous use of all caps – only two
    Grammar/spelling errors – nine!
    Bible thumping and quotes – none
    “I’ll pray for you” – none
    Threats of hell – none.

    So you get a twelve. That’s a pretty low score as hatemail goes, but your ratio of typos to content is very high, so you can at least be proud of that.

    And – if you find this kind of thing offensive, what are you doing in our church? If anybody had come into your church preaching His holy Noodliness, then you might have a cause for complaint. This is our church, and we will post what we like.

    I recommend this cartoon to you: http://pixdaus.com/single.php?id=24970 . If you want respect for your beliefs, it must be earned, by showing that same respect to others. Until xianity stops bashing those who do not believe in it, it’s fair game. Same for any other religion.

    I get offended by people who are too lazy to use spellcheck so we are even.

    The point of this religion? It’s to make a statement. Try and figure out what the point is, i’ll give you a hint. Read the open letter to the education board…

    Oh screw it, i’ll just tell you. The point is that this religion will and most likely always have the same backing as any other religion. The sheer ridiculousness of a Giant Fly Spaghetti monster creating the ‘heavens and the earth’ with his Noodily Appendages paralells how we view other religions. The reason why we make this point? Because it’s just simply ridiculous. Anything can be given enough credence if it can avoid empirical evidence. And why should we let that go on? This happens constantly in bogey medicines. Homeopathy, Chiropractics and so on. Can you imagine how it feels like for millions to die due to a faulty belief in something no-one can prove? It’s a shame on humanity as a whole.

    have you ever heard of spell check orthe suitable used of caps? You seem to have missed the fact that the Spaghetti Monster( the parmisan be with him) is just the unity of science and the religious accounts of the world in which we live. I suggest that you get your head out of your backside and use your brain for a change

    @ -Logal ,

    Perhaps if you were smart enough to read and follow the directions that were clearly given to you when you entered our site, you would have had your questions answered. After reading the Open Letter and the “About” tab material, you could have learned:

    1) Our mission is the exclusion of religious mythology from the science curricula of public schools.

    2) Our theology is a satire that neither depends on, nor is derivative of any other religion.

    3) We insist that any school board that includes any religious mythology in their science curricula, must also include ours.

    Carefully read the comments of Southern Ptarmigan (tenth down in the comments section) who has this question fully in perspective. S/He is a well educated evangelical Christian:

    Remember that you believe whatever it is that you do believe, because it’s what your parents or priest believe:

    Do not get trapped in the Authoritarian mold:You will be constantly surprised by unsuspected things.

    I have not posted for a while but this one from Logal is kind of interesting and I think worth responding to. First of all Logal did not quote a verse from the clunky old bible (which is so medieval and passé) and has all the trimmings of trying to promote tolerance, freedom of choice and respect. Logal, I am just wondering though, how can you equate religion with respect, tolerance and freedom? I do not want to be presumptuous but I get the sense that you have Christian beliefs so your God, his Allah and their Buddha are not really the same. Right there you can see the division and every religion in the world has the premise that theirs is the only true one. Where is the respect? Obviously you have not been around and have not been in places where society is predominantly ruled by religion. Religion does not care for anybody except for its own survival and religious zealots grip on power-remember Ahmadinejad. Where is the freedom? The second son in every family is forced to enter the monastery in Buddhism. The pope does not want people to use condoms otherwise they should be cast as the devil (maybe he is not getting any and if he is not getting any, nobody should – besides more poor children, the better for the church). In the Muslim world, they stone women because they can. Logan, look around – countries with strong religious roots are in chaos. It is not poverty or money which is the root of all evil. The root of all evil is religion. Religion does not respect anybody and you are expecting non-religious people to respect it? Why is it that every time religion is being discussed, you find it offensive as if it should be up in a pedestal and nobody should touch it. I bet you find it funny when people poke fun with different cultures of the world but with religion, no it is blasphemy, taboo, off-limits. That is a sign of critical thinking retardation. Religion should stop indoctrinating children of non-sense and crazy ideas which I think this site is all about. God exists and He created Adam and Eve, phew! That is the craziest idea I’ve ever heard.

    Wake up and smell the sweet aroma of meatball sauce with roasted peppers poured over heaping plate of spaghetti. It might alleviate your suffering from critical thinking retardation and impeded thought processing.
