A religious experience or an unpardinable sin???

Postby Herbwoman on Mon Jan 12, 2009 11:55 pm

As I am new to the faith of the Pastafarian, I have a question that I must pose.

Is eating pasta a religious act or is it an unpardonable sin? Also, if I make pasta from scratch, am I giving birth to a new god? If eating pasta IS a sacred act, is grated Parmesan also a sacrement? This is all so very confusing.

Last year at DragonCon I was blessed by the actual TOUCH of His Noodly Appendage and I do not want to Offend Him.

So if any of the Faithful could advise me, I would be very grateful.

I'm pretty new here too, but it is my understanding that the eating of pasta is entirely symbolic of the FSM and is highly encouraged. The FSM isn't found in the pasta we eat!

Pastafarians don't believe in transubstantiation therefore eating pasta is just eating pasta, tasty and scrummy though it may be.

As opposed to the dry wafer and little sip of wine you get in some religions.....Pastafarians have communion as a full pasta meal....a far more filling way to worship His Noodly Goodness. Fang is right, we are not eating our god....just His tasty likeness.

FSM is not a savior, but it is savory......LOL

Is beating a pinata an act or animal cruelty? Is calling someone a Pastafarian likely to offend anyone (except Elijah? :D ) I think not!

It's entirely symbolic. So knock yourself out and eat pasta by the bucket load.

Speaking of which, there is a noodle eating ritual in Morioka Japan, called "Wanko Soba" (yes interesting name!) which involves eating buckwheat noodles in large amounts.

It's a bit like a hot dog eating contest, only going hard on the nooodles.

Now if that doesn't make the Great One pleased, nothing will!!

That would explain why we use the word RAmen as the end of all prayers.....Ah, very tasty item indeed.

On the contrary, I would be disappointed if I didn't get to see His image every time I enjoyed my Pasta.

Also DaveL's post just gave me another reason to go to Japan. Which is a very large lists of reasons.
