A proud day for Pastafarians

Published September 26th, 2008 by Bobby Henderson

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.

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:

Congrats to Colin for contributing the latest evidence in our Pirates Vs. Global-Warming link:

Somalia has the highest number of Pirates AND the lowest Carbon emissions of any country. Coincidence?

More evidence of the pirates – temperature relationship

Published April 4th, 2008 by Bobby Henderson

The evidence for the relationship between pirates and global temperature continues to mount.

CNN reports, “The International Maritime Bureau, which tracks piracy, said in its annual report earlier this year that global pirate attacks rose by 10 percent in 2007, marking the first increase in three years. ”

Then, BBC News reports “Global Temperatures to decrease“.

The mainstream media may ignore the pirate-temperature link that Pastafarians have long known, but soon the evidence will be so overwhelming that they cannot ignore the Truth.

Further evidence: Google Trends shows a very solid relationship.

That screenshot is remarkable and 100% legit – not doctored. You can try it yourself here.

Congrats to Pastafarians Oliver and Adrian for spotting the CNN/BBC evidence.

FSM preacher claims Napoleontic cannon

Published January 31st, 2008 by Bobby Henderson

I recently worked for a local theatre company, where I stumbled upon this cool looking prop. Instantly I commandeered it to support my argument for the beneficial effect of adopting his Noodly lord, resulting in the convertion of 7 technicians and a couple of actors.

From our friends at neat-o-rama, 7 Myths and Truths about Pirates:

We’ve all got an idea of what it was like to be a pirate in the 1700s – but a lot of it is pure Hollywood hooey. Here’s a few of our most common misconceptions about pirates … and the truth about them.

Argentina billboard promotes Pastafarianism

Published September 26th, 2007 by Bobby Henderson

Thales spotted this giant billboard in the Cordoba, Argentina airport. Notice the Pirate Fish. Lindsay spotted a similar ad in an Argentine magazine several months ago – posted here.

I translated (poorly) the text of the ad as follows:

To Know – The Argentina Cultural Patrimony – To Take, Yes – To Take, No.

Lindsay interpreted the print ad as: The ad sponsored by the Argentine federal government is explaining what things can be taken out of the country, such as tattoos, and what things cannot, such as fossils. Its a cultural preservation type text.

The web address printed, www.cultura.gov.ar (notice the government domain), seems to confirm this. The website appears to belong to a cultural preservation organization.

What is intriguing is that there is no mention of the Pirate Fish on the website. Why did they use our symbol for their advertisements promoting cultural preservation?

Perhaps it’s just a coincidence they used the image of the Pirate Fish – one of our most sacred symbols. But, I choose to interpret it as the first step towards official recognition of Pastafarianism by the Argentine government.

It makes sense; I’m told Argentina is a devoutly Catholic country. The government is smart to gradually introduce a replacement religion; too suddenly, and people would surely protest. The Pirate Fish ad could be explained away as a “mistake” or “coincidence” if trouble arises.

What’s next Argentina? I’m happy to help. I would be pleased to visit your country to help spread Pastafarianism awareness.

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.
