tree-topper

Published December 11th, 2006 by Bobby Henderson

I made a spaghetti monster tree topper and took a picture with it for our “Happy Birthday Frank Sinatra Party”….you can see Frank’s ornament in the picture. I have also begun small spaghetti ornaments. I will let you know if those are ever finished.

happy Holiday season everyone

Published December 1st, 2006 by Bobby Henderson

Happy Holidays!

A Holiday message from me:

It’s that time of year again. Many will be celebrating Christmas, some Hanukkah, some Kwanzaa, whatever. Pastafarians will be celebrating our holiday, named “Holiday“. And it’s not a specific date so much as it is the Holiday season, itself.

I hate to go into specifics as to what and how Pastafarians celebrate/worship. The rituals and ceremonies are not important. What is important is that Pastafarians reject dogma and formalism (the emphasis on form over content). So, there are no specific, handed-down-from-above sort of specific rituals or ceremonies. Pastafarianism is more of a state of mind than a set of rules to follow. So enjoy the Holiday season, and celebrate it in a way that is pleasing to you and those around you.

That said, I would like to point out how much Pastafarianism has spread in a remarkably short amount of time. A few years ago, you’d be wished a “Merry Christmas” by everyone. Now, by our schools, businesses, goverment, on tv – everywhere – what do you hear? We’re not offered the Christian greeting “Merry Christmas“, but instead a happy “Holiday” season. Holiday, is of course OUR Pastafarian holiday, and it’s amazing to see how it’s been accepted, embraced even, by so many people.

Consider this: the Washington Post reports that a few people are upset with the White House “Christmas” cards, because they fail to mention Christmas. Instead, and not surprisingly based on President Bush’s presumed closet-Pastafarianism, the 1.4 million recipients of the White House “Christmas” card are wished a happy “Holiday season”. Say what you will about our president, but to send a Pastafarian propaganda message to over a Million people, in defiance of the Christian Evangelists who are supposedly his base – that took a huge set. I was so Touched that I took the time to write Mr. Bush a note. Click to read it, if you want.

So, that’s all. Have a safe and happy Holiday season. Remember that Flying Spaghetti Monster merchandise is not only fashionable, but also serves as propaganda.

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).

[youtube]kfnDdMRxMHY[/youtube]

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.

Absolute genius

Published June 22nd, 2005 by Bobby Henderson

Absolute genius.

Clearly you are doing the work of HIM and should be praised.

We need more schools in the world promoting the truth that the first sentient being HE created was a midgit in full pirate regalia.

May his noodly appendages shine down the light of his invisible ways to you.

I ran across your letter

Published June 22nd, 2005 by Bobby Henderson

Quite by chance, I ran across your letter to the Kansas School Board. I thought it was fantastic! With each passing day, one wonders if there is any logic left in this country, as the fundamentalists gain more and more power with government. Each and every Bible waver seems to believe they “know” what’s best for all of us. Of course, each has their own interpretation of what “God” says. And, we should “know” it is fact, since they use the very same source to substantiate their “facts.” Of course, any attempt to point out the many inconsistencies and flaws in their might book are countered by how we have “taken it out of context.” Yet, there is no explanation from them for the inconsistencies.

If they believe their theory with such resolve, one would think they would be willing to allow science to explore all avenues and perhaps prove their theory for them. I suppose they don’t want to waste time with that!

Your letter reminds me of a time, many years ago, when I was a student in a college anthropology class. We had a student, Jehovah’s Witness….who challenged everything taught. One day, sitting there holding a fossilized dinosaur bone, she argued that not such creature ever existed, but was merely a “trick” by the devil. Reason? Dinosaurs weren’t mentioned in the Bible. Yet, there she sat, dinosaur fossil in hand. The professor finally asked her why she was wasting her money and our time, occupying a seat in a university, since she had all the answers to the universe in her hand.

Again, thank you for a very refreshing point of view. It’s good to know there is still some who chose reason and logic over blind belief. Long Like The Spaghetti Monster!!!!!

Regards,
Stan

Nicely done.

Published June 22nd, 2005 by Bobby Henderson

Nicely done. I also recognize that if you are able to write such a clear satire that you are intelligent enough to realize that the little minds you are attempting to have some impact on…with, what to most of us is so patently obvious … i.e. that their pathetic, but fearsome (based on fear, not love) beliefs are plainly stupid … will not have the desired effect. They will not get it.

But, thank you for the entertainment for the rest of us.

Regards,
Bob
