Melbourne counter-demonstration: Muslims and Pastafarians Vs. Atheists

Published June 11th, 2012 by Bobby Henderson

During lunch break on Sunday April 15th  at the Global Atheist Convention in Melbourne, a group of 20 or so courageous Muslim extremists gathered in front of the convention center filled with 4000 Atheist unbelievers. They were quickly joined by two Pastafarians and shoulder to shoulder they demonstrated against those ignorant Atheists who do not understand Creation nor fear God. Islam and Flying Spaghetti Monsterism have the same core beliefs in common; we believe (and truly know) that the universe and all living beings were created by a deity and a Prophet spoke in His name. We just have different opinions about  the name of that god and Prophet and also treat our wenches slightly differently. Apart from that, Islam and Pastafarianism: Same struggle!

In the attached pictures you will see the Muslims demonstrating in full Islamic regalia together with Pastafarians in colander head gear holding up the Gospel and a fresh pack of Spaghetti. On the windows in the background you might see the reflection of a Pirate Ship. Coincidence??

Pesto be upon all Believers,

    I see the reflection of the pirate ship in the window. It looks like you docked just in time!

    Oh yeah, a big thanks to the Pastafarians (blending into the group of Atheists, disguised as members of the Humanist Society of Singapore) who handed me over the wonderful image of His Noodly Appendage!

  4. Randy says:

    Thank you, brave souls, for doing the bidding of the FSM. May His Noodlyness continue to “bless” you!


  5. TheFewTheProudTheMarinara says:

    We’re proud of our brothers and sisters in Pastafarianism!

    By the way, if atheism is a religion, as some trolls have suggested, would it be right and proper then to reverse the message from one of the signs to read “Islam is the cancer, ATHEISM is the answer”? Would that be acceptable?

  6. Brent says:

    One of the signs reads, “ISLAM The Only Monotheistic Religion.” Aside from being of dubious veracity, can someone please explain to me how this is a selling point?

    • Omnipotent Zombie says:

      It’s obvious really. Everybody tries to emulate the one true god, his Noodliness the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

    • TheFewTheProudTheMarinara says:

      Believing in ONE omnipotent, unseen person is slightly easier than believing in a horde of them.

    • Bill T. says:

      1. There is only one god
      2. all other religions are false

        Grrrr, hit “Enter before finishing my brilliant comment:

        1. There is only one god (postulate)
        2. I read in a book that all other religions are false (how could something I read in an old book be wrong?)
        QED: This is the only monotheistic religion

    Is that a spaghetti strainer on their heads? I was unaware of Ayaan Ali Hirsi, prior to reading the name printed on that protest sign. What an inspiring individual.

    According to wikipedia, she has been appointed the

    ‘ Moral Courage Award for

    commitment to conflict resolution, ethics, and world citizenship ‘.

    Naturally, her name would be appearing on a protest sign against Atheism? The pictures would not load earlier. They point better to what transpired, there now that I can finally see them. It is tragic this individual is being protested against, while she clearly is a humanitarian intent on generating only peace.

    Thank you for this posting. We had not heard of her before nor this news item.

  8. Jared says:

    Awesome. Wish I could’ve been in Melbourne for this. It takes some meatballs to stand among that crowd as a Pastafarian – bravo.

    By the way, Bobby, I’ve emailed a few times but no response. Hate to keep pestering and start commenting here, but I’d really love to discuss / hear back, even if it’s a no. Any word?
