Missing the point

Published August 4th, 2010 by Bobby Henderson

I believe many non Pastafarians are missing the point…

I try not to be as condescending as some other pirates on this site, but there are extremists in all aspects of "religion". Deal with it. Truth be told, I get a little defensive too when my thoughts are criticized.

The reason I point out FSM to many people is to bring light to the absurdity that religion has taken. Most of the preaching you seen in the site is merely the regurgitation of other religions BS that we have had shoved down our throats since we were children. All we are doing is repackaging it and sending it back out. If you study religious history you will notice that this is the same way Christianity and many other religions came to be originally as well.

There are many redeeming qualities of the people of other religions and what they believe. I have many things in common with people who just want to do the right thing and “live and let live”. I just wish that people who preach other religions would realize that they, and the people that wrote the religions, are fallible and that there is a highly likely chance that no one here understands why we are here and exactly how we should be conducting ourselves. I would like to be able to live my life in a manner that I see fit without being persecuted. I am being persecuted by the overly religious and when I read this site I find that I am not the only one who feels that way.

Modern regions’ practice and doctrine is based on the brain power of men (no women’s opinions were even considered) who thought that the world was flat, the earth was the center of the universe, and that a good bleeding could pull the demons out of you. I think the human race is smarter and more evolved than that today. I do not know why people are so against thinking for themselves? I guess it is just easier to blindly follow.

I feel this site gives those of us that are tired of being pressured to believe in something that in our heart we have found to be childish and petty a way to finally come together and not feel so isolated in our feelings. Before this site, it was hard to express my frustration. Other religions already have mechanisms for this such as temples, and churches. This is site is a gathering place. I do not go into churches and criticize others for what they are doing. If you do not like this site, then don’t view it. I am sure I would get ridiculed and condemned if I were to walk into a church and start talking about how archaic and closed minded I think the belief system is. The members of the church would get defensive as do the members of this group when they are challenged.

I merely want to talk to and be around those that have the same moral values that I have. This is why we flock together in the same ways the larger “religions” do. So please let us have our space to be who we choose to be.

May the wisdom of the FSM be understood and enjoyed by all. Ramen.

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I
    get three e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service?

    Appreciate it!

      Is there any chance that someone could make a porno film based upon the sexual exploits of the FSM? The plot might go like: Bored housewife can’t figure out what to get for hubby for dinner. Doorbell rings. It’s the FSM in His noodliness. He touches her with His noodly appendage. Cue lots of ecstatic moaning. Then hubby comes home and joins in. Noodles everywhere, lots of licking of sauce. Big meat balls. Tomato and garlic. Salad. A pepperoni sausage for every orifice. The full oral works. Plenty of beer. If somebody made it and submitted it to “Pornhub”, they’d get paid every time somebody watches it. It’s not so weird. The buybull tells us Jehova shafted Mary and made Jebus whilst she was still a virgin. Yeah? Really? So where’s the f***ing video evidence? Makes perfect sense to me.

        Some Japanese porn companies have made tentacle rape movies which is fairly similar, although the scenes involve unwilling participation which the FSM (being kind and loving etc) would not indulge in. See here if you want to know when and where it started. Kids, don’t see here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Dream_of_the_Fisherman's_Wife

    It looks like the COFSM website is abandoned by all but the trashiest of spammers!!!!!! Steve of God, Gabe, Austin, Dude: where are you when we need you???? Where are Keith, Atsap, TFTPTM, Wulff, Birdseye, and all the others???? It’s abject desolation here!!!!!!!!!!

    • Rev. Wulff says:

      Sadly, we’re being buried in spam, our comments being pushed off the front page in favor of irrelevant trash. I hate to say it, but maybe we need to start using Captcha or some other type of filter on here to keep the bots out.

      • Rasputin says:

        What I don’t understand is this: If our beloved deity can fly, how come He hasn’t got any wings? Are all the artistic renditions of the FSM just make-believe? Perhaps He doesn’t look like the illustrations on the website at all. Has anyone actually seen the FSM for real? Maybe He tucks away His wings so that He doesn’t frighten people. I don’t know, it just seems weird that He flies and has no wings. I realise He’s omnipotent, but we don’t want to make our religion illogical and difficult to believe like the buybull.

        • TheFewTheProudTheMarinara says:

          Can Jesus or Allah fly? They don’t have wings, either. Even if they did, they’d be limited in speed. Not so our Noodly Master. He just imagines where he wants to be and – Pesto! – he’s there.

        • Rev. Wulff says:

          It’s well established that there is no such force as gravity; it’s just the FSM holding things down with his noodly appendages. Therefore, it must follow that unless he grabs onto something and pulls himself down to Earth, he must be flying because there’s nothing to hold him down.

        • SillyKiwiMan says:

          Don’t forget, it is clearly written that our Beloved Carbohydrate is an INVISIBLE Flying Spaghetti Monster.

          To see him in his majesty would probably be more than the mortal mind could take. He may have wings, I personally don’t he does, but His Noodliness appears to his flock as fits their needs.

          Yarrgh, and bring on the captcha. I miss regular updates from Bobby, (although I’m aware that he has a life outside of my personal entertainment) and am sick of the bots.

          Quick question, while it’s not strictly FSM related, who’s entertained by Darwin-fish tattoos?

        • Keith says:

          The FSM can probably fly by creating turbulence with his/her/its noodley appendages. He(etc) can also wrap himself into a tiny ball and be shot from a pirate’s cannon. Technically this wouldn’t be flying any more than someone who simply “ascends” is flying but I’m happy to overlook that.

    • Keith says:

      I’m still here Frederick and I still post things. As Wulff says, we are being continually spammed and our comments get buried. My latest comment before this was
      » Keith said You know you are fat if you hang upside down and your belly button hits your chin. [This is a real religion?]

      • Apprentice Frederic says:

        Keith, many thanks for reassuring reply. I’ll suck it up and keep vigil for gold amongst the chaff. And thanks, too, for your post re: fat. I did hang upside down and could still see, so it’s better than I thought.

  6. Rasputin says:

    Makes complete sense to me. My eyes are opened. Thankyou to the wise community of the FSM.

    Greetings! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?

    My web site looks weird when browsing from my iphone. I’m trying
    to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this problem.
    If you have any recommendations, please share. Thank you!
