FSM Prayer

Published August 3rd, 2009 by Bobby Henderson

Truly, this be the way we Pastafarians must busy our hands when we pray.

The more fervent our prayers, the more wiggly must our noodly fingers be.

RAmen.

kiva update 7/25 – recruitment attempt

Published July 25th, 2009 by Bobby Henderson

Team FSM on Kiva is at $78,150 of our $100k goal.

It turns out that the largest team on Kiva is the Atheist, Agnostics, and Skeptics group with over 4900 members and nearly $740k in loans. Holy shit.

Not unlike a spy, I infiltrated their team covertly, and left them this message in an attempt to recruit some of those Godless heathens to our team:

Dear Atheists, Agnostics, Freethinkers, etc:

It’s not too late to Believe in something!

I know you have trouble Believing in a Higher Power – we all have these doubts from time to time. You just need to have Faith.

Once not too long ago, I was like you all – Lost, with no direction or hope. Then I had a Vision and He changed my life. I am talking of course of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

Let me ask you something: After a large meal of Pasta, do you feel more at peace? Scientists will confirm that after such a meal, endorphins and other “brain chemicals” are firing overtime. His Noodlyness at work!

I know many of you are academics and base your decisions on observation; before joining our Church, you’ll need a flawless argument. Consider this: the Flying Spaghetti Monster alters our perception of reality such that we can’t see or measure His influence. Thus, lack of observable evidence of His existence is, itself, evidence of His existence. After all, what else but an all powerful God could manage such a feat as this.

You’re all welcome to join our team on Kiva. We are over 500 strong and have raised nearly $80k of our $100k goal. Our kiva team link: www.kiva.org/team/fsm

Every Friday is a religious holiday for Pastafarians, you’ll be entitled to take these off from work.

For more about our religion feel free to view our website: www.venganza.org

Thank you for your time and may the FSM Touch each and every one of you with His Noodly Appendage.

RAmen,

Bobby Henderson

Team member Susie Q is auctioning off 3 Plush FSM’s on ebay, all proceeds going to our Kiva goal of $100k.

They are very nice, please take a look.

Help team FSM raise $100k on kiva

Published July 21st, 2009 by Bobby Henderson

Team FSM on kiva.org is now the top religious congregation. We’ve got almost 500 members on our team and we’ve lent out over $70k.

We’re trying to raise $100k by the end of the summer. Would you take a minute and check out the site and consider joining our team?

Kiva is a non-profit micro-lending institution primarily for the developing world. Typical loan requests are like, $1000 for some cows in Vietnam, or $1500 to open a shop in Cambodia. You choose which of the loans appeal to you, and donate a small amount, usually $25. When the loan is fully funded, 100% of the funds go to the borrower. They pay it back over time without interest. The money comes back to your account and you can take it or loan it out again (I suspect most of us re-loan).

Team FSM has so far provided more than 2100 micro-loans.

Our team page is here. Please take a look and see what you think.

Some example loans:

Please help us hit $100k.

seattle pride sighting

Published July 17th, 2009 by Bobby Henderson

A couple of pictures of FSM at the Seattle Pride Parade. One with my 17yo being touched, for the first time, by His Noodly Appendage. It was so wonderful to see his noodliness out in support of all the queers!

FSM, IPU and Jesus, high-fiving: the tattoo

Published July 13th, 2009 by Bobby Henderson

So here’s my latest tattoo inspired by well, uh, the Almighty FSM. I thought, “what’s cooler than a holy high five between some deities?”

Just wanted to let you know that we’re doing our part to spread the word…We were on our way to a local Pirate Festival in No. California…it’s not a pirate ship, but it gets us around–oh, and people get out of their cars at stop lights and ask us what the little silver crab guy is all about….

Successful Outreach

Published June 9th, 2009 by Bobby Henderson

I ordered the gospel of the flying spaghetti monster and sent the glorious word to a minimum security federal prison in Yankton SD. As a token of gratitude one the the guys spent 2 months in his cell crocheting this blanket glorifying the FSM. I put my guitar next to it for a perspective of size. Who says ex-cons can’t be a productive member of our society!?!?!

All my best,

took control over my body

Published May 1st, 2009 by Bobby Henderson

The holy flying spaghetti monster took control over my body for the last 3 days with one mission: to spread the word!

If I consider the over 100 times he explained the only true religion to the lost souls, the 50 people who touched his holy noodle and convert to pastafarians and the strange but very powerful attraction of his eyes, I would say the mission was successful.

Oh, before I forget: he say hi to everyone!

An elaborate spoof on Intelligent Design, The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster is neither too elaborate nor too spoofy to succeed in nailing the fallacies of ID. It's even wackier than Jonathan Swift's suggestion that the Irish eat their children as a way to keep them from being a burden, and it may offend just as many people, but Henderson puts satire to the same serious use that Swift did. Oh, yes, it is very funny. -- Scientific American.
