A pastafarian’s conversion

Published April 11th, 2007 by Bobby Henderson

Dear Mr. Henderson,

Thank you so much for your intelligent and witty challenge to intelligent design. Not only has this new church given me and my daughter (also an atheist) an enormous amount of entertainment, it also allowed me to play what will probably be the best prank I have ever played on my family and friends:

Dear Friends and Family;

I know that all of you have been concerned about my emotional and spiritual welfare, especially since the stroke. I know I have lacked direction, conviction, and integrity. I am writing to tell you that I have admitted to the error of my ways and have reached a turning point in my life.

Many of you feel that my lack of faith is the root of my problems and you were right. But I have been saved and want to spread the word; I hope that you can share in the blissful savior I have found. I love all of you so much, I want you to benefit from my new faith.

So, please take a moment to share in my redemption and go to the website below and rejoice in the truth.


Peace and noodles,

Being, and rearing, an atheist in North Dakota is not the easiest thing in the world. Remember, we are not much farther north of Kansas. I firmly believe that you are walking in the footsteps of the great social commentators of our world – Mr. Swift being the most obvious. So, once again, thanks and here’s to more conversions!

Peace and noodles,

    Nice work Laurie! Although somewhat below the belt, it should be a very funny prank.

    ND Pride! -makes 701 sing with fingers-

    In all seriousness, it’s great that there’s other people that think on the same lines as me around here. I’d never do that with my family, though.. they’re catholic.
