Halloween is a prime Pastafarian evangelism opportunity, the one night of the year that pirates and wenches can walk around in traditional regalia free from persecution.
Here’s a collection of Halloween Missionaries, and below that a collection of Propaganda Pumpkins. These are from the last few years. Please send me your photos from this year’s festivities and I’ll add them here.
The attached images were captured at the Columbus Museum of Art. Whether this drawing was left by a devout Pastafarian or placed by His Noodly Appendage, I do not know.
Basking in the florescent glow of the grocery store pasta aisle, the Flying Spaghetti Monster’s Noodley appendages shimmered like diamonds.
From this article on NPR it appears material scientists have stumbled upon the fundamental Truth of nature at the molecular level.
But perhaps not yet undertand what they’re seeing.
There’s one part of the molecule that doesn’t like the other part,” Bates says. So the one part of the molecule folds up into a sphere, forcing the other part to the outside, where it makes little tendrils. It resembles a hairy sphere.
I think what this work does is that it makes contact with something that is more universal than just plastics. It has the capacity to teach us how nature works,” he says.
And understanding how nature works is something all scientists strive for.

Tony found this Pastafarian shrine in Ft Worth, Texas.
I was fishing along the Sacramento river and when I walked out I saw the truck parked near my car.
Love and Pasta,
Hey does anyone know who owns this truck?
I came across an interesting LA Times article:
Organized religion’s increasing identification with conservative politics is a turnoff to more and more young adults. Evangelical Protestantism has been hit hard by this development.
During the 1980s, the public face of American religion turned sharply right. Political allegiances and religious observance became more closely aligned, and both religion and politics became more polarized. Abortion and homosexuality became more prominent issues on the national political agenda, and activists such as Jerry Falwell and Ralph Reed began looking to expand religious activism into electoral politics. Church attendance gradually became the primary dividing line between Republicans and Democrats in national elections.
