Anthropology Class Evangelism

Published October 13th, 2010 by Bobby Henderson

Is it just me or does this guy look like a real pirate? 

For my college anthropology class we were asked to give a presentation on a culture or religion that we felt strongly about.  I, of course, did mine on the FSM.  I made sure to dress in the formal attire as I gave my presentation.  I gave out fliers and explained the fundamental concepts of heaven (as seen in the picture).  All of my fliers were kept by my peers, and my professor gave me an A.  Apparently Washington State University has FSM supporters in the student body and faculty…
Thanks!

Brisbane airport endorsement

Published June 25th, 2010 by Bobby Henderson

Recently at the Brisbane International Airport to fly out on holiday to the USA I was idly browsing the Airport touchscreen directory and thought I would share with you a curious observation. I can only conclude that the 4th symbol is the wheel of a pirate ship and that Pastafarianism is officially recognized by the Brisbane Airport Corporation.

Cleverly disguised

 

Clear as day.  Well spotted, Simon.

Only a few minutes later, Zlatko sent me this picture of the FSM at Dubai International Airport:

Very interesting.

Pirate boat feedback please

What do you guys think of something like this for the FSM voyaging church? I will tell you a few reasons it appeals to me.

It’s something we can build together.

We can start right away. We have enough money to get started and we can buy more materials as we raise more during the build process.

It’s more realistic and practical. I like 200′ Galleons as much as anyone, but I don’t see a lot of them sailing around. Pirate boats are extremely expensive to buy and maintain, and require a large trained crew to sail. If we get one, it’s going to spend much of its life being rented out to pay for itself.

Something like this is relatively cheap (hundreds of thousands vs millions), simple to sail, lots of room.

The one in the picture is ~65′, I’m not sure the upper limit on sailing catamarans.

What do you guys think? Build or buy?

Obama *not* raised Christian

Published October 23rd, 2008 by Bobby Henderson

*** Breaking ***

Presidential candidate Barack Obama as a child.

This photo just surfaced, showing presidential candidate Barack Obama dressed as a pirate when he was a child. I think it is clear, now, that he was not raised Christian as his camp has claimed. The evidence suggests he was raised not as a Christian, or Muslim – as some have said – but as a Pastafarian.

This begs the question: Is Mr. Obama still a Pastafarian?

Please discuss.

A proud day for Pastafarians

Published September 26th, 2008 by Bobby Henderson

[Pastafarians stage a counter-protest. Photo cred - Brian Chilson]

It was a victory for Pastafarians everywhere.

Last Friday – Talk Like a Pirate Day – the Central Arkansas Pastafarians interrupted and caused the discontinuation of a Westboro Baptist Church hate-demonstration.

Westboro Baptist Church is best known for picketing funeral processions of soldiers killed in the Iraq War, but they hate everyone who doesn’t share their literal interpretation of the Bible.

From Wikipedia:

The church runs numerous websites such as GodHatesFags.com, GodHatesAmerica.com and others expressing condemnation of homosexuality, Roman Catholics, Muslims and Jews, as well as populations it believes are supporting the aforementioned groups, including Chinese, Swedes, Canadians, Irish, British, Mexicans and Americans.

These guys are intolerant assholes; I am so happy to see our fellow Pastafarians ruin their day.

The Arkansas Times had this to say about the Pastafarian counter-protest:

What do you do to make a bunch of soulless nutcases abandon their post at the Convention Center? Send in the pirates!

Yep, the cuckoo Phelps hate group walked the plank this morning after a happy bunch dressed like pirates and holding signs saying “God hates shrimp — Leviticus” and “God hates cotton-polyester blends” stood opposite them at the corner of Markham and Scott streets. The group, made up of Central Arkansas Pastafarians, waved swords and growled “Arrghh!” in a manner that would have made Abbie Hoffman proud.

With cars honking and waving at the pirates and a TV crew giving them all the attention, the Phelps group — with a child in tow, sadly — picked up their “fag” epithets and went away. Pitiful.

A sincere thank you to the Central Arkansas Pastafarians. You made us all proud.

Pastafarian Marc sent us this picture:

Perhaps the Charles Darwin Research Station will see fit to fly the Pirate Fish flag?

Some of you may remember this flag from the Pastafarian invasion of Catalina Island:
