. . . as i gazed upon the octopodes
consorting in the waves
i saw between their writhing toes
the one who us has saved.
2500 people at a rally to oppose a new pulp mill here in Tasmania, Australia. 3 people approached me to tell me how awesome FSM is (his noodles be praised!), and 2497 people looked at me like I was a nut-job. The things we do to get the good word out…
My girlfriend and I were exploring the Vancouver Conservatory and discovered this plant, which was clearly blessed by his Noodliness, and believe it to be a sign that he still surrounds us with his blessed appendages in all life.
I accidentally melted pipette tips boxes in a 180°C oven in my lab. I think its a sign!
I do too.
A bunch of groups in Sacramento, including Sacramento Freethinkers Atheists and Nonbelievers, Sacramento Area Skeptics, Atheists and Other Freethinkers recently had a Pastover event.
Among the many pirate events I created this cake to celebrate his noodliness (Red velvet inside, in celebration of tomato sauce). We also ate pasta and meatballs.
Attached is the photo of Princess Beatrice rocking her flying spaghetti monster hat. Way to go you royal pastafarian!
Peace, love and oodles of noodles,
Dear Friends at the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster,
We celebrated last Friday the event of the reference. It took place at the "Plaza de la Paz" [Right in front of the Metropolitan Catholic Cathedral] in Barranquilla, Colombia. Though we were only 25 Pastafarians, the presence of his Noodliness was strong. The opportunity served us to settle an agenda of activities that are planned in order to promote the idea of the separation of church & state, a secular view of the world, and of course, the Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
I´m not sure of how well informed are you about what´s going on here in Colombia, but under the Uribe administration freedom of beliefs was not cherished [measures that undermine the spirit of the Constitution of 1991 were taken, like forcing the teaching of religion again in schools and granting privileges to the Catholic Church]. The previous constitution was adopted in1886, which made Colombia a confesional state, namely, a Catholic one. This means that in the past 9 years we got back over a 100 years on the subject of rights, having to witness cases related to the discrimination towards other beliefs, not to mention those who are agnostic or atheists. The situation is really one to worry about: picture yourself the General Prosecutor boycotting a law that allows women to abort if (1) Malformation of the fetus, (2) Grave risk for the mother´s life & (3) Pregnancy being a result of rape. Guess what? This member of the government is affiliated to the "Legionaries of Christ"[!!!], and offered a number of different phony legal explanations to promote the figure of "conscientious objection of institutions" [Yeah, right, that´s what he argued] so as to allow different hospitals to deny the services to women that requested the practice of abortions under the above mentioned three circumstances [as granted by a Sentence of the Constitutional Court]. In the practice, he has put forward an agenda that implicitly accepts it is good to be first a believer and then a member of the government. Going beyond the discussion on abortion, no matter if one is in favor or against it, it is simply outrageous that a member of the government decides that it is legal to brake the law.
Since some of us got sick & tired of this & other similar cases, we decided to open a FB group called "Primera Iglesia del Monstruo de Spaghetti Volador de Barranquilla". The attached pictures were taken the day of the meeting. We hope to make a small contribution & that you include this news on the site.
May he touch & enlighten us all with his noodly appendage!

Thanks to Ashley for sending the link to this video in which the FSM battles Yahweh. I believe this is more fictional than a historical re-enactment, as the FSM is a peaceful God and I don’t think He’d fight even if provoked.
Here’s the video:
We had a sighting of the FSM at work today. I work in a lab and we heard an awful crash in our stock room. Upon investigation, we found this…
Normally it holds our stickers for labeling chemical bottles, but we feel we have been visited. We’re thinking of turning the stock room into a shrine, charging admission, and turning ourselves into monks of the FSM. Instead of habits though, we’ll wear our Tyvek lab bunny suits.
We think the FSM was trying to tell us not to turn that room into a BL2 lab.
