FSM vs IPU youtube contest

Published February 13th, 2007 by Bobby Henderson

I just received an email from a Pastafarian named Brian who is putting on a quirky youtube contest:

I’m encouraging people to make and upload videos about a battle between the Invisible Pink Unicorn and the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

Ideally, I would like some to point out the insanity of religions (i.e. christianity & muslims) killing each other over imaginary creations.

The Limp Noodle documentary

Published February 11th, 2007 by Bobby Henderson

A couple of weeks ago, a few of my friends and I participated in a campus movie festival (http://www.campusmoviefest.com) and created a short documentary about someone following the wise teachings of the FSM. Seeing as your work in spreading his noodly word, especially the Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, directly inspired the creation of the film, we decided you might like to see it.

Have You Been Touched – painting

Published February 9th, 2007 by Bobby Henderson

John Cracknell created this FSM masterpiece

The painting is entitled “have you been touched” and comes from my later (circa thursday) Magic Realism Figurative Period. It depicts His Noodlyness, The Flying Spaghetti Monster, reaching down from the sky with his invisible noodly apendages to embue his all creations with the life force. It is not possible to show all his noodliness’s creations in a canvas of this size so they are represented here by; grass, a flower, a bird and of course a man.

Religion Class

Published February 9th, 2007 by Bobby Henderson

I just found this article in the San Luis Obispo Tribune discussing whether or not a religion class should be allowed in school.

The Atascadero school board voted Tuesday night to reconsider a controversial resolution allowing students to attend a church class during school hours.

And then farther down …

Santa Margarita lawyer Michael Blank offered a different viewpoint. “There’s a lot of cults and sex out there that may be unattractive to this board,” he said.

He asked school board members how they would react if the “Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster,” a parody religion, wanted to offer a class for students.

I’m not sure which category we fall into. Probably cults.

My view is that religion classes should be allowed in school but that they shouldn’t be taught by any member of that particular religion. Unless we’re talking about Pastafarianism, in which case the teacher should be a devout Believer, dressed in Pirate Regalia.

You Atheists are so arrogant

Published February 6th, 2007 by Bobby Henderson
You Atheists are so arrogant. Don’t you ever consider that you’re wrong about this whole ‘There’s no god and 90% of the world’s population are just dumber than us.’ thing, and admit you havn’t even considered christianity to be what it is, the truth? Don’t you realize why everyone hates you? Beecuase you’re ignorant+arrogant, not a nice combo.Oh well….you’ll have your time to pay. Unfortunately it lasts an eternity and consists of a lake of fire, a guy in red with a pitchfork, and a few pineapples (Don’t act like you don’t know what they are for).

As for me, i’ll be chillin with Jesus. Have fun for the rest of your godless, pointless lives…cuz that’s the last bit of joy you’ll ever have.

I’m very against this site

Published February 3rd, 2007 by Bobby Henderson

I’m very against this site. I know you’ve stated that it’s not a spoof
of Christianity, though I don’t know why you bothered saying that bit.
It’s as though you’ve reverted to high school- If athiests and
intellectuals don’t have anything better to do than make fun of people
with genuine beliefs, maybe they ought to go back to their evolution
books and take comfort in the big bang or primordial soup. It breaks
my heart that this is what the world has come to. As if there weren’t
enough religious controversy and war in the world… why can’t you
work toward promoting understanding between people, rather than
exploiting idiots and making fun? It’s this kind of mockery that
caused the crisis with the Danish cartoons.

The basic premise of religion, especially Christianity, is a God who
cannot be seen or fathomed in our normal way of seeing. If we could so
define Him, He wouldn’t be God, but an idol we had made. If Jesus
could be defined intellectually, He would just be another man.
Clearly, religion doesn’t always pan out as God intended it to. When I
claim to have a real relationship with Jesus, do you think I’m making
it up? That My Jesus is just a figment of my imagination, and the
things He has done for me are pure coincidence? I guess it comes back
to, unless you believe, you will not understand.

You are clearly a smart man with a lot of creativity. I want to
encourage you to put that brilliance and work ethic into doing
something positive for the world as it is now… perhaps helping in
the fields of medicine or diplomacy, or combatting poverty and
disease. Until people’s basic needs are met, it doesn’t signify much
to ask them to believe anything.

Sincerely,
Kate

Shocked and Appalled

Published February 3rd, 2007 by Bobby Henderson

Dear Mr Henderson

I have recently come across your web site regarding the Flying Spagetti Monster and I am shocked and appalled to say the least.

It is my considered view that you are poisoning the minds of the worlds youth with your outrageous claims that a Flying Spagetti Monster (“FSM”) created the universe and not our Heavenly Father.

I did observe in your “Open Letter” that your position regarding the FSM would appear to be satirical or fancyfull in nature, however, in the “About” section of your website you claim, “Anything that comes accross as humor or satire is purely coincidental”.

I can appreciate the mirth of good satire as much as the next man but as a Christian I am deeply shocked that young people are turning from the wisdom and light of the Lord to this heinous worship of an imaginary flying monster. Your monster has all the credibility of a Walt Disney character and should be regarded purely as entertainment and not as a basis for religious belief.

You sir are a disgrace, and your energy would be best spent recanting these ridiculous assertions.

Yours faithfully

Peter H.

jesus loves you bobby

Published February 3rd, 2007 by Bobby Henderson

I am writing this letter to you not to argue your point against mine but to let you know that it is so sad that people argue about their beliefs instead of just letting God’s love flow thru them to those who don’t believe. I do not believe in your theory, but I would like to tell you about my experience with God. Jesus loves you Bobby. It is sad that there are many people out there who believe in God/Jesus, but do not have a personal relationship with Him. It is sad that we have to get called names and cursed when we express our beliefs.

I John 1:5-10 – This is the message which we have heard from Him (God) and decare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him (God), and walk in darkness, we lie an do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we hae fellowhsiop with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.

I am a 36 year old female that believes in God the father, Jesus the son, and the Holy Spirit. I do believe that the Holy Bible is the inspired word of God. I asked Jesus to come into my heart and save me at the age of 7 and I have never regretted that decision. No one made me make that decision, it was my own decision. The fact is that I don’t just say a prayer to God at bedtime or when I need help with a problem, BUT I daily talk to Him in prayer and read the Bible. God speaks to us through the Bible. The problem is, there are so many people in this world that think because they go to church on Sunday or they say a prayer at bedtime that this makes them a christian. I am not a judge and only God knows their heart and if their name is written in the Book of Life (Revelations 21:27 ). If you only talk to your parents/spouse at bedtime, then do you have a relationship with them? Jesus is my spiritual Father and I love those times that I spend with Him. The fact is that God created the world, this includes the universe as well, God created all living things. God created man to praise Him. Adam and Eve sinned when they disobeyed God. If you have kids, do you punish them when they disobey? God punished them by throwing them out of the Garden of Eden, a perfect place where the lamb and lion would lie together. I believe everything the Bible says. God sent Jesus to die on the cross for everyone because HE LOVES EVERYONE!! Jesus loves you, Bobby. Jesus was mocked and beat and died on the cross for you and me. (Hebrews 7:22-28) Now we have the freewill to choose of deny God, we no longer have to offer sacrifices for our sins. This is Grace. God forgives us of our sin when we ask and repent. God is a god of love and mercy. God doesn’t want anyone to go to hell, but he has given us the freewill to choose. He isn’t going to make us serve Him. I know and believe that Jesus is real and I believe that one day He will blow a trumpet and those that are saved will rise to meet Him. I believe that there is a place that He has prepared for the saved called Heaven. I cannot wait to bow before my Lord and Savior and thank Him for all that He has done for me. Does He speak to me in an audible voice? No, but He does answer my prayers.

So what do I get out of believing in Jesus? I get a peace and joy that is unexplainable. Do I have trials and problems? yes, I do, but because I have Peace that only comes from Jesus and Joy that is unspeakable, and I have Jesus that I can talk to about anything anytime, I can make it through those problems. God is so awesome. I am a sinner saved by grace, the grace of God and I would die for it. If I were asked to deny Jesus or die, I would die. That is how much I believe in Him. He is so precious to me.

So why does God not like sin? He is my Heavenly Father and as my earthly father doesn’t want me to do things that are wrong because they hurt me or are bad for me, that is why Jesus doesn’t like sin and wants us to flee from it.

Do I believe in Hell? Yes.

Do I believe in Satan/Devil? Yes. He is like a roaring lion, seeking whom he can devour. He hates God and therefore, we are in constant spiritual battle because Satan likes to remind me of my past, but with God’s help and the scriptures from God’s Holy Word, I can keep him away. (1 Peter 5:6-7). Satan will be cast into Hell. Hell is not a fun place, it is a place of torment and gnashing of teeth, and I will be so sad for those who refused to believe and go there. (Revelations 20:10, 15) The way I look at it is this way:

If I am wrong and God is not real and there is no Heaven or Hell and I have spent my life believing in it, then I have lost nothing.

BUT, If I am right (and I believe I am) and you are wrong and don’t believe in Jesus , then you have everything to loose. It will be a sad day for you and all of those people you have worked so hard to be against Jesus. (Revelations 21:7-8)

Please, if you have any questions, or if you want to know more about what I believe, email me. You have the right to believe whatever you want, but wanted to let you know why I believe in Jesus.

In Jesus love and service,

Sherry
