That is one pointy cupcake. Or is it Him?

I was honored to find His Holiness turning up at a bake sale at my nursing home last week… proving that He cares about us through every stage of life.

Pointy foods are more delicious because they have more surface area, and thus a higher flavor density.  –Science

This petroglyph is insurmountable proof of His existence

I found this petroglyph (rock carving) at Newspaper Rock in Utah. These carvings date back thousands of years, possibly even predating pirates.

The evidence keeps mounting.  Nice work, David.

Another pasta Bible, what is this blasphemy?

Published October 23rd, 2011 by Bobby Henderson

When shopping in an organic food store in Leuven, Belgium, I spotted these Pasta Bibles next to Noodle based foods.

I was a bit fearful to read it, as I do not wish to be exposed possible fake literature contradicting the our Gospel.

After a quick review, I realized it was a picture book of His Noodlyness in many different manifestations.

Comes with descriptions in Dutch language on how exactly He was boiled for our sins.

Modern Art sighting

Published October 14th, 2011 by Bobby Henderson

Museum_Sighting

Hi Bobby, I believe that I have seen an admittedly rather lean representation of the FSM in London’s Tate Modern Art Gallery,  I have attached a photo for you.  The ‘work’ was created by Joseph Beuys (1921-1986) and is called Table with Accumulator 1958-85.  What can the mysterious reduction in His noodly appendages mean?  Seeing as today is a Friday, I shall be mostly eating spaghetti.  Ramen.

The meatballs are crocheted

Published October 10th, 2011 by Bobby Henderson

Obviously touched by His Noodly Appendage, my wife Nadine was somehow able to summon the Flying Spaghetti Monster. I never knew it was so cuddly!

The meatballs are crocheted, the eyes are made of Fimo. The noodly appendages are made of plush, some with pliable wire inside. Nadine used HistoryWeaver’s knitted FSM (http://www.historyweaver.org/2008/06/flying-spaghetti-monster.html) as a reference.

Pasta la vista,

Miraculous low tide sighting

Published October 7th, 2011 by Bobby Henderson

It is a miracle!!

While at a marine conservation workshop on the North Sea island of Sylt, His Holiness revealed himself to me.  This is a picture of two forms on the low tide mud flats.  Some people say they are worm burrows, but I know his Noodleyness when I see him.

Keeping up the fight and spreading the word while here in Germany,

Road mark sighting

Published October 5th, 2011 by Bobby Henderson

I was walking with my son one evening last month when we spotted the Noodly one on a road marking.  We gave thanks by eating pasta twirls with cheese and tomato as soon as we got home.

Is this a sign from the FSM or maybe a Pastafarian road worker evangelizing to the passers-by?

Black Rock sighting

Published October 2nd, 2011 by Bobby Henderson

Me and my friend went camping at Black Rock (Australia) and we discovered these carvings of the Flying Spaghetti Monster which appear to be from quite a long time ago. I was very lucky that I had my mobile phone with me to take a picture of this sighting. I hope you enjoy the sighting!

Skeptics might say this looks like a sand drawing but those with faith know better.

Oregon faith-healing couple found guilty of manslaughter

Published September 30th, 2011 by Bobby Henderson

From kwtx:

Dale and Shannon Hickman of Oregon City, Ore., who prayed for their ailing prematurely born son rather than seeking medical care, have been found guilty of felony manslaughter.

Prosecutors claimed Shannon Hickman never sought prenatal care and the couple never considered taking the premature infant to the hospital.

The child was born with a bacterial infection and underdeveloped lungs and died within nine hours after he had trouble breathing.

The Hickmans’ attorney claimed religious persecution and said there was no evidence that medical care would have saved the baby.

Faith healing is one of those areas where I can ignore it as a so long as it’s affecting themselves.  But it’s very sad when parents are making reckless choices for their kids.  I am happy to see this case worked out and hopefully it will cause some religious groups to do some critical thinking.

Some believe this case illustrates how evil religion is. I wavered on posting the article because that is not the point I wanted to make. More to the point, I believe the Church of FSM is not just another anti-religion club. A lot of us have the view that religion is harmful and antiquated, but a lot of us also accept that a huge number of people feel they get something positive out of their faith and their religious communities.

So I am cautious about posting things that promote the idea that the world would be better off without religion. Because, more than anything, I don’t believe it’s in the scope of the Church of FSM to make that statement.

The point I want to make is this: instead of drawing the line between the religious and non-religious, let’s draw the line between the reasonable and unreasonable. Let’s criticize a culture that values faith over reason, rather than religion itself.

Why? We know plenty of religious people and we realize that the majority of Christians do not reject modern medicine for their children. We personally know people who get something positive from their religious communities and yet still act with reason.

These are the people who might believe in some scripture, but they also realize that their faith does a poor job of explaining the natural world. They are not blinded by faith, they are reasonable. We need these people to promote the value of reason within their communities.
