Another (?) proof of the FSM

Postby daniel on Sun Jun 04, 2006 12:48 am

I used a question mark in the subject line because I don't know if this is new, or if someone else has already pointed it out. This is another proof that life on earth was created by a spaghetti monster (Probably The Flying Spaghetti Monster, cuz what other is there?)

I've been listening to the lecture series Biology: the Science of Life from the Teaching Company (teach12.com) and here is what particularly struck my notice. The following information is from the above mentioned course:

Proteins are the molecules that do almost everything that makes living cells alive. They synthesize the materials of life, they mediate the chemical reactions, they convert food to energy in animals and energy to food in plants, etc. They are both the chemical messengers that allow cells to communicate with each other, and the chemical receptors that receive the messages. Proteins are what make living things alive. There is a humungous number of different proteins, but each is a very long strand of amino acids. Remember this: long and thin. But as soon as a protein is synthesized, it begins to curl and wind up on itself, forming a globby sort of thing, and it's its particular globbed-up shape that give it its characteristics. Some proteins are actually several strands all globbed up together.

The above is all basic science.

What struck me is that it is obvious that these most basic building blocks of every living thing on Earth were designed by an intelligent creator to mimic spaghetti: long and thin when its manufactured, and then all globbed up in a general mass of wiggley, twisting interlaced strands.

Proteins are made in the image of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

And if that was not enough, the genetic code is contained on DNA, the famous double helix, which is exactly like those spiraly noodly pasta things.

I trust that pointing this out to any unbeliever will be sufficient to convert them.

Wowzerness. That is truly remarkable. If it has been pointed out it is new to me as I was only recently Touched. Thank you.

I never really thought of the proteins themselves. Just further proof!

DNA itself I had thought of though.

When the DNA is in the nucleus, it's chromatin...which is about as spaghetti-like as you can get. When I was tutoring a (grade 10) science student, spaghetti-like was the exact word I used to differentiate between that and the chromosomes formed during cell division.
I admit, it crossed my mind to tell her about the FSM and all his holiness, but there were slightly more pressing matters at hand (like getting a pass).

In DNA there are also some meatball-like structures that the spaghetti curls around. They are called histones.

Proteins don't just gobble up to form their structure. Their form lies already in the structure of the spaghetti. Once transcribed and after other post-translational effects, like adding sugars for taste and phosphates for fun, they assume their divine position, intended by the FSM.

In this small image you see the microfilament structure of a cell. Involvement of the FSM is evident. The spaghetti in it's original rigid strong fom is protecting the meatball inside that is the core of the cell.

There is a technique used to visualise microtubules (also noodley) called Fluorescence Speckle Microscopy, which uses a low concentration of fluorescently marked tubulin monomers to show treadmilling.

This is clearly another sign. :)
"Ankh-Morpork people, said the Guild, were hearty, no-nonsense folk who actually preferred chocolate made mostly from milk, sugar, suet, hooves, lips, miscellaneous squeezings, rat droppings, plaster, flies, tallow, bits of tree, hair lint, spiders and powdered cocoa husks. This meant that according to the food standards of Borogravia and Quirm, Ankh-Morpork chocolate was formally classed as 'cheese', and only escaped, through being the wrong colour, being defined as 'tile grout'."

A good point indeed, one which Bobby Henderson himself touched upon in the Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, by comparing DNA to pasta.
