holy city

I was delighted to see this manifestation of His Noodleness in in the Tower of David adjacent to the Jaffa Gate in the Old City Walls of Jerusalem. Awesome, don’t you think?

    Ohmmoose (#13): are you trying to skirt the issue? Happy Talk like a Pirate Day, all you swabbies!

    I’m not so happy about the colour in which his noodliness has been depicted. That’s more of a stringy, snot colour, rather than freshly worked pasta. I think perhaps a fatwa-rrrghh should be called on this Chihuly apostate…

    They have a similar one in the Victoria and Albert Hall in London, England. Our god is everywhere. :)

    Guys… Im really sorry, but you need help. Your worshipping PASTA. Pasta that has 2 random meatballs! How do you even know it’s a HE? what evidence do you have to support your religion. Also, who created it? Cause Im guessing it was a really bored geek that thought it would be “fun”.

    Please, just take a step back and look at yourselves.

      @ WHOA.,

      Perhaps if you were smart enough to read and follow the directions that were clearly given to you when you entered our site, you would have had your questions answered. After reading the Open Letter and the “About” tab material, you could have learned:

      1) Our mission is the exclusion of religious mythology from the science curricula of public schools.

      2) Our theology is a satire that neither depends on, nor is derivative of any other religion.

      3) We insist that any school board that includes any religious mythology in their science curricula, must also include ours.

      I’m sure that you fundi wingnuts will never tire of mis-reading and mis-interpreting our website. Now please go away and find a web site that accords with your prejudices and intellect, and leave the adults to talk.

      Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public.

    WHOA!! Emphasis on SATIRICAL religion–There is absolutely no requirement to believe in the Flying Spaghetti Monster to be a Pastafarian. Pastafarians are mainly atheists/agnostics. The agnostics may occasionally assign the FSM to be the face of their Undisproven god, but all good Pastafarians realize that this religion was largely INVENTED to be fundamentally RIDICULOUS.
    If you’d read the Open Letter, About, or FAQ page, then you’d know that our group is made up of people who a) Disapprove of teaching Intelligent Design in schools, b) Are Logical, Open-minded people with a sense of humor, and c) Like to dress up like pirates, eat pasta, and hang out with a bunch of other Logical, Open-minded people with a sense of humor.

    PS. We don’t know for sure that he is a He. This is the gender noun that the Prophet Bobby Henderson used to designate Him, but many contend that he is in reality genderless, and that it’s the English Language’s fault for not having a neutral singular pronoun. As we know that our prophets are fallible, and probably just making everything up, there is also no problem with saying that Bobby is wrong and the FSM is a female.
    He does have an astounding number of “Noodley Appendages”, which seem to suggest he is quite male. The Meatballs are another clue we have, but they could go either way–breasts OR testes.

    PPS. The meatballs are not random. They are intelligently placed within the divine mass of Spaghetti.

    PPPS. The religion was created by Bobby Henderson, in response to the Kansas State Board’s decision to redefine science so that they could teach Intelligent Design. Our primary evidence is contained within the Open Letter, which is the correlation between the decline of Pirates and the rise of Global temperature. As Pirates are his chosen people, the our “logical” explanation must be that he gets extremely angry when their numbers start declining and his hot temper is the cause of global warming. (You may be interested to note that Somalia has the greatest number of pirates, AND the lowest CO2 emissions of any country.) Another evidence is the fact that all evidence points towards evolution happening, which coincides perfectly with the theological doctrine that he meddles in scientific testing to test his followers’ faith. So every time a scientific test gets inconclusive results, that is conclusive evidence that he has been messing with scientific data.
    It’s all nonsense, really, and we know that. We are mimicking Intelligent Design’s stance that utilizes every little “evidence” that can be found for it and completely disregards the mountains of evidence that exist against it.
    Again, you would know this if you’d taken any time at all to study what we REALLY believe before posting >:-(

    We do NOT, if you want to get technical about it, worship pasta. We worship the all-source from which all pasta is derived! The Original Tangle. The Noodley One. All things which derive from His form are considered at least somewhat sacred- spaghetti, polymer chains, superstring theory, etc. We’re very inclusive.

      Don’t you mean the ‘all-Sauce’? Sorry, it’s not your fault…our sacred texts can be mis-translated just as the rest.
