Are there any Pastafarians on the Big Island of Hawaii? Specifically on the East side, Hilo/Puna region?Â Email me, ok? Â [email protected]
I’m a student at the University of Ottawa, and I was walking across campus for an 8:30am class the other day. I was in a bad mood because it was early and because it’s the end of the semester and I’ve been really stressed, when I saw this. It really brightened my day because it reminded me that, wherever I go, the FSM is right there, watching out for me.
FSM sighting in this very creepy Japanese video:
Credit goes to Ashleigh L for finding it.
Hot Cup of Joe has a good article about the recent Pastafarian Suspended From School story and Pastafarianism in general.
The obvious criticism by the religious is that the FSM is concocted and not meant to be serious, but there’s absolutely no more way to demonstrate this than there is the same criticism of Yahweh, Allah, Brahma, Elohim, Jesus, etc.
The North Buncombe school that suspended Killian maintains that it was his pirate outfit which was the reason for the suspension, since it was disruptive. The very outfit that Killian stated was important for his religion and in appropriately representing his religion. I wonder if the school would be willing to extend its disruption policy to yarmulkes and kippas?

Anyone else see Him?
Sorry this is a little late ..Â I’m way behind on emails.
In the area where I live, there are many churches and most of them
have been putting out roadside signs encouraging people to go to
church for Easter.Â Today I saw a new sign alongside the others; I
think I’ll opt to go to THAT church!Â Â (Please see photo attached.)
Dear Mr. Henderson,
Thank you so much for your intelligent and witty challenge to intelligent design. Not only has this new church given me and my daughter (also an atheist) an enormous amount of entertainment, it also allowed me to play what will probably be the best prank I have ever played on my family and friends:
Dear Friends and Family;
I know that all of you have been concerned about my emotional and spiritual welfare, especially since the stroke. I know I have lacked direction, conviction, and integrity. I am writing to tell you that I have admitted to the error of my ways and have reached a turning point in my life.
Many of you feel that my lack of faith is the root of my problems and you were right. But I have been saved and want to spread the word; I hope that you can share in the blissful savior I have found. I love all of you so much, I want you to benefit from my new faith.
So, please take a moment to share in my redemption and go to the website below and rejoice in the truth.
Peace and noodles,
Being, and rearing, an atheist in North Dakota is not the easiest thing in the world. Remember, we are not much farther north of Kansas. I firmly believe that you are walking in the footsteps of the great social commentators of our world – Mr. Swift being the most obvious. So, once again, thanks and here’s to more conversions!
Peace and noodles,
On May 9th the Missouri State University Chapter of the Church of the FSM will be putting on a FREE outdoor concert from noon-11pm. They have 8 bands signed to play already and will be raising money for breast cancer research.
Here’s the flyer:
Noodlefest has four band slots remaining and would love some big-name talent from outside the area.Â Interested bands can contact Rob at 314-378-2202 or [email protected]
