Nick the Missionary from the ECU Flock of Dodos Screening has made another appearance!
Randy Olson was so pleased with my imopromptu performance at the last screening, that he flew me out to Hollywood for a screening at Graumans Egyptian theater. I had a great time, and spread the noodly word to many. I have attached a few photos from the event. Theres a couple of photos of me posing with the official dodos, a Darwin impersonator, the Director Randy Olson, and his mom and the star of the movie Muffy Moose. One is with the only celebrity I met Matt Walsh from the Upright Citizens Brigade. I also included the greatest photo of the trip! Its of FSM and a particularly buxom pirate wench we ran into. He seemed to be fond of her cleavage. I think thats what many of the strippers in heaven will look like!
More pictures can be found at Nick’s flickr page here.
Thank you very much Nick!
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.
More details of the contest can be found here. Entries must be in by April 1st, 2007. The best video will win a can of spaghetti O’s.
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.
The video can be viewed here
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.
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. “Thereâ€™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.

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.
