I am an recently converted Pastafarian form the SE part of Norway, I am also a registered Minister (no 207-200).

My username "Smart58" is one I am using on various forums, the name don't really mean anything except, that I humorously claim that the word got smarter in the morning of august 3 1958, then I made my appearance the first time. :drinking:
May His Holy Nodelnes, brighten your day.

Welcome, Little Red.

I am a great admirer of your Riding Hood, your Rooster, your Schoolbook and of course your Corvette.

Post often, earn kudos, stature and a title. Or something like that. Excuse me, it's Saturday night and I may have had a small refreshment.

Welcome!

Sorry, didn't notice Zacrotus there. Are you a midgit, Zacrotus? That could be why I didn't see you. Apologies, welcomes, beer volcanoes and stripper factories...

Postby Gnocchic on Thu Oct 10, 2013 9:54 am

Greetings fellow Pastafarians! I am a recent convert to the Gnocchic sect of the FSM. Gnochic (from gnostikos, "learned", from Ancient Greek: γνῶσις gnōsis, knowledge; Arabic: الغنوصية‎ al-ġnūṣīh) is the belief that the material world should be shunned and the Pasta world (FSM's world) should be embraced. Gnocchic ideas influenced many ancient restaurants and cuisines which teach that Gnocchis (variously interpreted as satiety, fullness, hunger free, etc.) may be reached by practicing pasta making to the point of personal poverty, sexual abstinence (as far as possible for hearers, completely for initiates) and diligently searching for wisdom by helping others consume pasta. However, practices vary.In Gnocchicism, the world of the demiurge is represented by the lower world which is associated with matter, flesh, time, molecules and more particularly an imperfect, ephemeral world. The world of the FSM is represented by pasta and sometimes meatballs, and is associated with the soul and perfection. The world of the FSM is eternal and not part of the physical. It is impalpable, and time doesn't exist there. To rise to the FSM, the Gnocchic must reach the "knowledge" which mixes pasta making, sauce preparation, cheese expertise, and the secrets of history and the universe.

Welcome, Gnocchic! Didn't see much about beer and strippers in that post, but I'm sure you'll get to that part.

You may have Gnoccicism confused with another sect.

If the words “ethics” or “morality” are taken to mean a system of rules, then Gnocchics are opposed to them both. Rules generally become perverted by the human application of them and do not serve the higher purposes of the FSM. If, on the other hand, morality is said to consist of an inner integrity arising from the illumination of the indwelling spark of perfectly prepared pasta, then the Gnocchic will embrace this spiritually informed existential ethic as ideal.

Gnocchicism encourages non-attachment and non-conformity to the world, a “being in the world, but not of the world”; a lack of egotism; and a respect for the freedom and dignity of other beings. Nonetheless, it appertains to the intuition and wisdom of every individual “Gnocchic” to distill from these principles individual guidelines for their personal pasta recipes.

So in the end, both Strippers and Beer are fine.

Unlikely - I don't understand other people's distinctions between one form of religion and another because I try to avoid thinking about such things at all. So far, fairly successfully.

Welcome again! :welcome:

Also, welcome Husky! :welcome:

Pieces and Mods- I do not seem to be able to PM you yet but yes I did mistakenly create an account under the name "Gnocchicist" I also e-mailed forum@venganza.org and asked that that account be killed. I have no explanation as to why I erred so completely except that I was clearly not feeling the noodly appendages very well at that time. On the plus side I did immediately make Capellini in an attempt to reconnect.
