Pastafarians Marching For Science — Contradiction?

Published April 24th, 2017 by Bobby Henderson

Congratulations and thanks to everyone who took part in the March For Science Rally. I’m relieved to see democracy in action by a sensible group of people.

Even though we Pastafarians are skeptical of “science” and “logical conjecture based on evidence”, we respect the idea of science – its search for knowledge – and we admire the people who dedicate their lives to the cause.

How then is it not a contradiction for Pastafarians, a faith-based group, to support science, or at least support scientists?

We Believe an all-mighty Flying Spaghetti Monster alters the universe in a way that makes it *appear* that the scientific method is sound, that humanity’s knowledge and its advancement out of caves and into spaceships is a direct result of this process. It appears that we can deductively infer conclusions through experiment and reason.

We can’t fault Scientists who have not yet seen the Light – they are doing their jobs, and they are intellectually honest. The same can not be said for some groups, including many groups who have a Belief structure that stems from faith.

So why is Pastafarianism correct, when it sometimes contradicts reason? Because the FSM says so, and we Believe1.

1. Circular Logic is allowed in religion.

Note — the FSM was spotted in Greenville, North Carolina — article here.

      Beware, folks: “loans without no upfront fee” means “loans with upfront fee”. Only you probably have to put it upside down to see it before you get trapped.

        Don’t worry, basicdesign, no Pastafarian is so gullibly-stupid to fall for a Nigerian scammer any more than they would believe a Mormon. If they are, they deserve to be shot.
        Anyway, I offer doubloon loans at only 1% interest with no up-front fee.

        • basicdesign says:

          what, chocolate ones? I take.

        • Captain Birdseye says:

          Chocolate, unlimited gold, whatever type of doubloons you want. How about 0.5% interest? Simply collect your loan from my ship moored off the tranquil Malacca Straits.

        • basicdesign says:

          Huh, sorry got side-tracked. Forgot to say : we didn’t use to shoot ppl onboard. We only strung them up. Powder was harder to get than ropes. You’re a parvenu pirate, lol.
          F’s sake, geography now. Ok, i’ll look up ggle maps.

        • basicdesign says:

          ah, ok. Never gone beyond Madagascar. We only did the Atlantic coz that’s where the slave trade was. Needed to renew the crew regular like. They had the choice: stay & fight with us or get dropped at the next decent stop. As for the crew that had taken them, the guys also had a choice : stay & fight with us or get to feed the fish head first (the body followed a few seconds later). The trick was spontaneity, they had about 1/2 sec to make up their minds coz in fight you don’t need procrastinators & we cldn’t afford to let loose potential grass-ups. Not the officers, them suckers all went to the fish – never liked self-called superiors.
          i don’t want a loan thank you but I cld do with a hand. Wld you be interested in helping me get my box back? I buried it smwhere 400 yrs ago and now have no fucking boat to get back to it. I’ll give you a nice necklace wth pretty stones on it for your trouble.

        • Captain Birdseye says:

          Ahhh, now, locating missing boxes does require a small up-front fee. For your convenience, I have trustworthy agents anchored off the Ivory Coast. Remember to take lots of gold, rum and cabin girls for the journey.

        • basicdesign says:

          lol it doesn’t need locating (so it’s reduced fee :-), I know where it is to a few tens of sq.ft. Just need transport…. and one pick/shovel guy coz the ground is hard and I’ve passed the age for that. Upfront fee is on its way in the wake of the king-size colander mentioned elsewhere. Rum will be rationed til the task is completed and then they can have a full fountain of it. Girls not my pbm but don’t pick them as trying to be too clever for their own good, same for the crew, and xtra witnesses is ill-advised. Gold at the outcome. If interested and have the needed gear try this with no spaces,
          f point pee or he see why at hot! mail point co point uk.

        • Captain Birdseye says:

          Sorry, but said box was raped and pillaged by my great great grandpappy, Captain Codface. You wouldn’t want it back.

        • basicdesign says:

          lolol that’s an outward lie. Aïe, too bad…

    I lost my job a couple of months ago and I had just a few hundred bucks to my name. I was searching for ways to make money real fast and i bumped into this page from google. At first I was upset but I gave it a try anyways. I ordered for a $10,000 blank atm card and I got my card delivered here in CA. I was curious so I got up and went quickly to the atm and to my surprise I was able to withdraw $2500 that day. My card stopped working after a couple of days but I managed to withdraw $8,000 in total. Thank you so much, I will order a bigger amount. Am grantful Donard. email: [email protected] if you are in need of finance help.

    • Captain Birdseye says:

      Danny, I didn’t know that prison inmates were allowed to scam-spam. You should have spent your last few bucks on bus fares to job interviews.
