This site is frustrating

Published April 29th, 2010 by Bobby Henderson

This site is frustrating because these “pastafarians” just use this mock religion to bash on everyone else’s beliefs. there are pieces in the Bible that seem absurd… talking animals, reanimated corpses, the ground opening up and swallowing people, etc. but nothing that takes THIS great a leap in logic. God isn’t a “bearded man on a cloud” He’s the creative force in this universe. hell isn’t a place where you can “chill with friends, but boy is it hot in here”… hell is a place reserved for Satan, and the people who he deceives into following him there. don’t take all this as “shoving my religion down your throat” take it as a clarification of some misunderstandings some pastafarians seem to have about Christianity. the obvious point behind this website is to say “hey you believe in God without proof, well we believe in noodles, and since they already exist, that counts as proof”… well basically, it’s not proof people should look for in spirituality… it’s doctrine. pastafarian doctrine is an obvious farce. the Bible has integrity. where all these other “religious books” fall short, the Bible stands firm. you guys couldn’t even come up with an original name… it had to be ripped off from the Rastafarians… give the Bible a try, an honest try.

Peace and Love for my fellow humans,
Joe

      Things are easier to read with correct punctuation and capitalization.

    The human brain evolved a spirited sense of humor, which apparently had a survival value.

    Personally I don’t think it’s the spaghetti monster that is the source of creation, it’s the interaction of the water and pasta together. Each separately would be incomplete. And I’m willing to passionately debate the issue.

    Congratulations on making the most ironic ending statement on the site. What is it about FSMism that riles up a group of followers whose lord said ‘he who cast the first stone’ blah blah? It’s so backwards.

    The FSM has a sense of humour, the bible does not. I think i will stick with Pastafarianism thanks

    One of the scarier things about the hate mail to me is that most of the writers are so quick to lash out against someone without even the most cursory exploration of who their lashing out against. It takes all of about 42 seconds to Google the FSM, and read the Wikipedia page, to figure out the source and the intent of the Church. Alot of the Hate Mailers just seem to have a really severe nervous itch to hate someone, and don’t want to be bothered with the truth.

    That seeming inability of some people does beg one disturbing question with me. If some of those hate-mailers fail to see the satire, what about the possibility of other folks who also fail to see the FSM for what it really is, and start to believe in it, hook, line, and sinker. Could a couple of hundred years from now see a Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster on every street corner? Could a future self-serving person write a FSM “New Testament” to bring in more parishioners? Could future FSM zealots blow up other cultures’ restaurants because they offend the sensibilities of pasta? Could Judaism have started out as a parody religion, and after a few generations been morphed into what it is by people who forgot the joke? I mean, have you really read through Genesis?

    Sorry if I don’t give some people much credit, but human nature and history can be frightening.

      I found this website today and I thought the exact same thing– give it a couple hundred years and the cofsm will be all the rage. Ohhh the sweet irony.

    Well said, Lex. Very well said. I applaud your insight :)

    Joe, if you and your fellow Christians really stood for peace and Love for your fellow humans, maybe there wouldn’t be a need for this site. Unfortunately you don’t.

    Your bible is an incredible muddle of ideas, most of which you quietly ignore. Again, that wouldn’t matter, except that from time to time someone finds a verse in there that suits their prejudices and runs with it.

    The result has been:

    Young women being burned to death as witches. Almost a cliché, but can you imagine how utterly horrible those scenes must have been?

    Men being imprisoned or killed because they happened to be born with a different sexual orientation.

    A Christian cult that mocks the funerals of US soldiers because your God is supposedly hot under the collar about homosexuality.

    Another Christian cult that seeks the second coming of Christ via a nuclear war.

    Yet another (rather large) Christian cult that preaches extreme sexual purity, to the extent that it is better that people die of AIDS rather than use condoms – yet has regularly covered up the fact that its priests were abusing the kids that went to its churches.

    A number of vicious crusades that crossed Europe and the Middle East bringing rape, death and suffering to people of all religion and none. The latest was lead by that great US Christian leader, George W Bush!

    Oh wow this kid thinks the Bible has “integrity” and “stands firm” against other religious books like the Quran or the Torah. Goddamn comic books have more consistency than the Bible.
