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.
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.
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,
Does anyone read japanese?

hello. I came across your so call WEBSITE as a mistake. ok, I have one question for you. WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU? How can you honestly believe that spaghetti can have legs, arms, and a pulse at the least bit? Your web site is clearly a joke, and anybody that believes a “thing” can have MEATBALLS for eyes, is clearly disturbed and should seek help immediately. How can you people make such vulgar comments about the catholic and Christian religion? saying that we have to accept that God’s balls are larger than ours? that is clearly disrespectful to all Christians. If you wish to disrespect me, i will disrespect you, by saying that you are all a bunch of LOONS with mental disabilities. Worshiping spaghetti is like worshipping Poland just because they make good water! Oh, and one last thing. tomorrow night, while i am enjoying my wonderful plate of spaghetti, ill make sure i enjoy it. But, you can give me a call next time you see the flying spaghetti monster. I would give you my number, but I can guarantee you wont need it.
During the course of my research into condensed stages of DNA my colleague and I came upon this paper.Â “Nanoscopic structure of DNA condensed for gene delivery”, Dunlap et al, Nucleic Acids Research, (1997), Vol 25, No. 15, Pgs 3095-3101.
Please examine Figure 2c, and be enlightened.
In fact DNA seems to naturally condense into nano-toroids reminiscent of his Noodliness.Â Since DNA is the precursor for all life, and His image is seen in DNA, then we must assume that The Most High Pasta is in us all.
May his appendages be ever moist.
wow, this site has to be full of the biggest crackheads i have ever heard of.Â Idiots claiming a flying spaghetti monster, and more idiots complaining about it,Â goddamn.Â let me lay things straight here
1. Spaghetti is a food, i’ll eat your false deity, so screw it, you all can go die
2. The concerned christians who post on this site are just as dumb.Â who the fuck cares about this little site?Â you’re only bringing attention to it by posting.Â and for the record, fuck it i’ll eat you’re deity as well.Â I hate every last one of you.Â and i don’t care if i’m feuling your quest for a lower IQ, ffs, you’re all just a bunch of nerds who decided that it might be funny to listen to the crackhead named Bobby Henderson.
anyways, have fun losers, i’m gonna go to my girlfriends house now.Â i’ll explain what a girlfriend is to you later.
