Tampa Tribune featured the FSM Holiday display

Published December 24th, 2013 by Bobby Henderson

Tampa Tribune front page

The Tampa Tribune featured the FSM Holiday display in today’s paper, front page.

The sign says “A closed mouth catches no noodly appendages.”

And here’s the Christian nativity display that started all of this:

What do you think — next year, will the Florida Capitol allow any religious displays?

Thanks to Jay Nelson for the photos.

Florida Capital approves Pastafarian Holiday display

Published December 22nd, 2013 by Bobby Henderson

Equality

Great news! The Florida Capitol building has endorsed our religion by allowing an FSM Holiday display on its grounds.

The Florida Capitol building just made a move that Sarah Palin is likely to interpret as a hostile affront in the so-called “war on Christmas,” approving a religious statue from the Pastafarian group of their deity the Flying Spaghetti Monster to be included in the Capitol’s holiday displays.

He has Risen

Published March 31st, 2013 by Bobby Henderson

My friend Gooeld spotted this egg with an uncanny likeness to the FSM. 

Because it is Easter, I want to share a link to a debate on “Did Jesus Really Rise From The Dead?” between Michael Horner and Dan Barker.   Horner is Christian scholar and Barker is a reformed Christian preacher and now an atheist activist.  It is an engaging debate and I suspect no matter your beliefs you’ll find reading this time well spent.

Here’s the link:  Did Jesus Really Rise From The Dead?

Merry ChriFSMas and happy Holidays everyone

Happy Holidays everyone! I want to share a collection of my favorite displays this season.

But first, check out what is to my knowledge the first ChrisFSMas song, composed by Rade – who, incidentally, makes his home in the same town (Hallein, Austria) as F.X. Gruber, who composed Silent Night.

Now that you’re in a Holiday mood, here are the displays:

Possibly my favorite this year, here’s Scott and Jeanette’s knitted tree-topper.

It would not feel like ChrisFSMas without a festive and historically accurate Nativity scene – this one, courtesy of Dmitry:

Here’s an ornament spotted on Dmitry’s Holiday tree:

Abbey found this Holiday stocking at her house:

And the FSM perched atop her tree:

He was also spotted in Holiday lights in a window:

and here He is in a yard:

Halloween Evangelism

Published October 31st, 2012 by Bobby Henderson

It is that time of the year again, when Pastafarians can dress in official pirate regalia and Spread the Word without fear of religious persecution.  And while some may be wearing these costumes for other reasons, I have to believe that some day they too will be Touched by His Noodly Appendage.

Please send me your Halloween Evangelism photos and I’ll post them here.  As always, pirate girls are encouraged to send in their photos. For academic reasons.  Or maybe some sort of equal opportunity thing, I don’t know.

Below are some photos from this year and some of my favorites from previous years. Keep them coming.

It’s Talk Like A Pirate Day

_Obama_pirate

President Obama sent out this tweet for Talk Like a Pirate Day.
Is this proof that he is really a closet Pastafarian?

I’m not 100% sure this is accurate but I have Faith it’s true.

Microscopic Effigy

Published September 6th, 2012 by Bobby Henderson

SmallButMighty

I stumbled upon this microscopic effigy of the FSM.  His Noodly Appendages are made of gold nanowires, 100 nm in diameter, and His Meatballs are silicon nanoparticles, ~1500 nanometers in diameter, coated with gold.

Photo source: nanowerk news

May you all be touched by His (tiny) Noodly Appendage.

RAmen,

Adam

PS – the description of the photo from the website:

Nano Spaghetti and Meatballs Colorized and overlaid scanning electron microscope images of Spaghetti and Meatballs made out of Au and Si. The ‘spaghetti’ is a collection of electrodeposited Au nanowires, 100 nm in diameter, that have released from the substrate and bundled together (Thomas Cornelius – GSI Darmstadt). The ‘meatballs’ are Si nanoparticles, ~1.5 um in diameter, with Au nanocrystals on the surface that were grown on carbon-coated substrates using ultra-high vacuum molecular beam epitaxy (Gunther Richter – MPI Stuttgart). These images highlight some of the many varied structures that can be formed at the nanoscale. (Image: Blythe G. Clark and Dan Gianola)

Bathed in the holy light of a desk lamp

Published August 16th, 2012 by Bobby Henderson

2011-11-22 FSM

My coworker, Max, made the body on a lark using the paper shredder. Weeks later, His Noodly Appendage touched my heart and helped me decide that it should become an homage to the FSM. We began construction immediately and this was the end result. Bathed in the holy light of a desk lamp.
RAmen!

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.
