Was the world created by god, evolution or pasta?

Simon Singh reviews The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster by Bobby Henderson.

The popularity of Intelligent Design over the past decade has been profoundly depressing for anybody who cares about science and rational thought. Supporters claim that some aspects of nature are so complicated that they cannot be explained by evolution, and therefore they conclude the existence of an entity who must have designed living beings. Although the criticisms of evolution are generally flawed and exaggerated, Intelligent Design is being taken seriously by many educationalists.

Richard Dawkins

Published October 4th, 2006 by Bobby Henderson

World-famous science author Professor Richard Dawkins, during an interview about his new book The God Delusion, mentions the Flying Spaghetti Monster. (Around 1:50).

It seems that he’s saying the existence of the Christian God is as likely as the existence of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, and that you can’t disprove either. Perhaps he’s not aware of the evidence we’ve gathered in support of the existence of the FSM, and all the academic endorsements, etc. Or, maybe he’s tentative about revealing his true faith, Pastafarianism.

*update* – I Just found an interesting comment:

Regarding your suspicion of Dawkins’ closet Pastafarianism. I quote from The God Delusion, p53:

“I am delighted to see that The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster has now been published as a book, to great acclaim. I haven’t read it myself, but who needs to read a gospel when you just *know* it’s true?”

I’d say that’s evidence for Dawkins’ Pastafarianism at least as strong as the Global Temperature/Pirates correlation, wouldn’t you?

*update 2* – Further evidence of Richard Dawkins’ Pastafarian beliefs: On today’s NPR Science Friday radio show, Professor Dawkins again mentions the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Link to the radio show.

Here’s another good video of Richard Dawkins.

Barenaked Ladies promotes FSM

Published October 1st, 2006 by Bobby Henderson

The Canadian band Barenaked Ladies, while performing at a bookstore on September 19th (TLAP day), took some time to Spread the Word of the FSM. 

They even signed a few copies of the Gospel.  I wasn’t there, but I’m told that they were very concerned with Global Warming, and played a few pirate songs to do their part to lower the temperature. 

Here’s some pictures:

Clearly true Pastafarians.  In fact, lead guitarist Ed Robertson posted on the band’s official blog: This is so excellent. I am speechless. I’m a believer.

Thank you very much, Barenaked Ladies.  May you be forever touched by His Noodly Appendage.

And thank you, Pastafarian Rudy, for the pictures!

UC Davis Pastafarians

Published October 1st, 2006 by Bobby Henderson

On Sept 19th, a good portion of UC Davis was introduced to the Pastafarian faith. These are the photos of the event.

Thanks very much to Ray and Mario for Spreading the Word.  Ray’s description follows:

100_0718.jpg Looking for potential pastafarians.

100_0719.jpg Still looking …

100_0722.jpg Catching up with this guy.

100_0723.jpg This guy was just touched by His noodly appendage.

100_0724.jpg This dude wanted nothing to do with me, but his girlfriend made him stay.

100_0725.jpg Looking over there…

100_0726.jpg These guys were just as confused about our faith, as they were about my attire.

100_0727.jpg Looking for another convert.

FSM Pumpkin Contest 2006

Published October 1st, 2006 by Bobby Henderson

I’ve decided to have an FSM pumpkin carving contest for Halloween this year. The winner will receive $500 – and possibly more if I can get some donations, or if the contest causes merchandise sales to rise.

pcube1.jpg

Anyone can enter, as many times as you like, and the contest will run until Nov 20th. (Last year I received FSM pumpkin pictures well into November).

To enter the contest, you can use this form or email me.

The winner will be chosen by the viewing public. Voting is already enabled, so you’ll want to enter as soon as possible.There are almost no limitations. Vote as many times as you like, but only one vote per IP Address will be recorded. But, you’re more than welcome to get everyone you know to vote for your entry.

That’s it. All voting,etc, will take place here, at the FSM Pumpkin Contest 2006 page.
