The Cave Painting

Postby Scott the Pirate on Fri Jul 03, 2009 2:33 pm

There's a picture in The Gospel of a FSM painted on the ceiling of a cave. The Gospel claims that the painters grew tall enough to reach up there because the FSM couldn't reach them in the cave.

So, if the FSM passes through solid matter with ease, how did the cave painters grow so tall as to be able to paint on the ceiling of the cave? Couldn't He just have reached through the rock?

Is this one of those tests of my faith?

Yep, as it says in the Gospels disclaimer

While pastafarianism is the only religion based on empirical evidence, it should also be noted that this is a faith-based book. Attentive readers will note numerous holes and contradictions throughout the text; they will even find blatant lies and exaggerations. These have been placed there to test the readers faith.


It really sort of covers the entire book with a few choice exceptions, IMO.

Well, that about wraps up the theology part of the programme fairly nicely. Can we get back to drinking and insulting each other now?

I hope she didn't bruise you too badly.
