    @ Nikkiee

    Maybe it’s that time of the month. I’ve been dealing with a barrage of bible thumps on another forum and they are getting as thick as thieves. What could it be…oh yes, they have that special holiday thing coming up. Makes them all indignant…I mean warm and fuzzy inside. So Xrist like.

    @ Peter

    Glad I’m not the only one who caught that. For awhile there I thought I was sailing aboard a ghost ship.

    How do you spell ‘que’ Mad John (pronounced ‘kay’… as in Manwel from Faulty Towers)

  3. Mad John Kidd says:

    Que (kay) is Spanish for “that”. Is that what you mean? Or qué as in “what”. They’re both pronounced the same. Depends on how it is used in a sentence.

  4. Wench Nikkiee says:

    I think ‘what’ is the relevent one here. Wasn’t a bad guess on the spelling! Now if I could just do that with the english words…… ;)

    It’s about time we enter the educational system. Here’s a trail-blazing vita to consider:

    Doctor of Flying Spaghetti Monster Missions And Evangelisms Degree

    Course Syllabus

    Each FSM rector must reckoned to have communicated with the Flying Spaghetti Monster. He must be willing to pledge to his group of followers that he/she has been influenced by the voice and vision of the FSM. As a rector in The Church of FSM, you will allow the FSM to speak to your heart and counsel you about the stresses of life. The Flying Spaghetti Monster will replace all your negative emotions with HIS opposites.
    You will learn to teach your flock how to experience the FSM living within and learn to abide in the FSM to the extent that HE abides in our gut knowledge of HIM… especially after a nice pasta meal.
    Your message does overlap, somewhat, with existing neo-con religions by learning how to fulfill your financial destiny. You will immerse yourself in The Church Of Flying Spaghetti Monster’s Scripture and find support for the belief that the FSM delights in the prosperity of HIS children. You will learn amazing ways to teach your pastafarians that it is the FSM’s desire for them to lend and not borrow, to be the tail and not the head. Once they’re true believers that the FSM actually interfered with the Carbon-Dating process, you will be easily manage to teach them the nature and purpose of prophetic revelation and its proper function in the Body of FSM. You will soon become a questioning, visionary, psychic, and creative thinker who questions the status quo.
    Lastly, the FSM belief surpasses creationism and all ID viewpoints simply because it offers a concrete and reasonable explanation of how everything was created in a nanosecond…and recently! With his slick tentacles and all-knowing nature, he obstructed the attempt, via dim-witted human Carbon-Dating, to place things and events in an orderly sequence throughout time. FSM explains how, better than any other organized religion, that the earth was created in 6 days roughly only 6,000 years ago. It explains why the FSM bible is scientifically accurate in explaining why the earth isn’t billions of years old. True FSM believers realize that dinosaurs did not exist millions of years before man, even though thousands of heretic college textbooks say otherwise. The SFM’s tentacles also makes it easy to see why the mountains, oceans, the true location of the Red Sea crossing, and many other events are no older than 6,000 years. Yes, I cannot fathom teaching ID and creationism in America’s science classes without also teaching the Flying Spaghetti Monster theory…it seems to hold up better. I’m awaiting the second coming of the FLYING SPAGHETTI MONSTER!!!

    I was greatly offended when I found this book in the “Humor” section at Borders. After Holiday, I plan on going back and moving all copies of the book into “Religion” possibly while dressed in pirate gear.
