In praise of an alternate creation theory

Published January 7th, 2007 by Bobby Henderson


Leslie Scrivener has written an excellent article, In praise of an alternate creation theory, in the Toronto Star.

From the department of one scientific theory is as good as another, comes the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

The theory goes like this: the Earth and all living things were created by a Supreme Being, the Flying Spaghetti Monster, and though there are no witnesses to creation, there are written accounts of it.

In time, men and women heard of the spaghetti monster and came to worship him. And as the word spread, a gospel was written and churches were established in his name.

And artists, inspired by his word, drew his image – a tangled mass of pasta, with two generous meatballs, and googly eyes protruding from stalks.

Since the Flying Spaghetti Monster was revealed in 2005, millions have seen his image or read about him and his teachings, on the Internet site www.venganza.org and also in a book published last year, The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

    I love it!!!!

    I generally find the best way to expose these Clowns like Bush & Pat Robertson & these fundamentalist Moroons is to just let them open their stoopid yaps.

    I never really paid any attention to this Religious Baloney growing up – everybody in our small Southwestern Ontario town seemed to be doing it. Even well-respected members of the community. The teachers, the lawyers, the fireman, the cops, the shopkeepers, just one big, happy Town buying into this crap.

    I can see this happening back in Medieval Times or somewhere over in Taliban Land but in America & Canada is beyond belief. We’re talkin’ FUBAR!!


    Atanyrate thanks for the brilliant article Leslie Scrivener & thanks Bobby Henderson fer yer Joyous Creation!

    Cheers!! Billy ;))

    I’m hoping this will inspire new members, spread the anti-creationist word and produce new hate mail. If we keep this up, we’ll be an officially recognised religion soon!

    If you guys at FSM really believe this crap, you’re as crazy as the Christians.

    And if you don’t, you’re just being insincere and mocking religion without being brave enough to admit it.

    This whole site is ridiculous.

    Please read the open letter. There is a link on the home page here at venganza. And we have already stated that we are opposing religion, so please do a little more research before you post again.

    “these fundamentalist moroons…”
    Finally, someone solved what we should do with them, and in a very piratical way too!
    Have a volcano…

    Gnocci Man:

    I have read that. What about it? “I and many others around the world are of the strong belief that the universe was created by a Flying Spaghetti Monster.”

    I guess you guys ARE as crazy as the Christians, is that what you’re trying to say?

  8. Mike says:

    Gnocci Man:

    Again, if you are OPPOSING religion, why are you doing it by creating a new religion? And if you don’t believe it, why do you pretend that you do?

    Be honest and use honest arguments. And most of all, don’t pretend to be hurt when Christians accuse you of mocking them. That is exactly what you do, so why go through this whole charade of saying you’re not?
