Troy sent me a link to this level in Bloons, a really addicting game where you pop balloons (“bloons”) with arrows. It definitely looks like the FSM. And the level is called named “Noodly Appendage”. So it’s probably not a coincidence.

Here’s the link to the game.



Live Traffic Map

On the top right corner of the page, you will see a live traffic map that Mark Maunder created. It shows where the last 100 visitors came from. Hold the mouse cursor over a dot, and you can see their exact location. I think it is very cool.

You can get your own live traffic widgets from www.feedjit.com

Thank you very much Mark!

My friend Becky recently celebrated a birthday, so as a fellow Pastafarian i decided to make her a Flying Spaghetti Monster cake. I thought you might enjoy it, so here’s a slightly fuzzy picture!

It’s a 3 layer half round chocolate cake, with buttercream filling. It’s covered in fondant, and there are two types of noodles – rolled fondant and marzipan. The eyes were made from icing, styrofoam and wire, and the thing was extraordinarily heavy. It took a few days, but i’m positive i’ve never had so much fun making a cake before.

Here‘s another good article. Esquire takes a look at the Creation Museum in Kentucky. I’ve always wanted to go there. Someday I will make it.

From the Creation Museum website: The Creation Museum presents a “walk through history.” Designed by a former Universal Studios exhibit director, this state-of-the-art 60,000 square foot museum brings the pages of the Bible to life.

But that doesn’t really explain it. It’s more like a bunch of evangelical, young-earth, bible-literalist, Christians got together and said, “what if we made our OWN museum”, and then did it, somehow. That’s what happened.

Esquire’s Charles Pierce is clearly biased against Creation theories. He finds it unlikely that we lived alongside dinosaurs a few thousand years ago *1*, for instance. Despite his close-minded views, it’s a very interesting article and provides a glimpse of the museum and these people who visit.

The dinosaurs are the first things you see when you enter the Creation Museum, which is very much a work in progress and the dream child of an Australian named Ken Ham. Ham is the founder of Answers in Genesis, an organization of which the museum one day will be the headquarters. The people here today are on a special tour. They have paid $149 to become “charter members” of the museum.

“Dinosaurs,” Ham laughs as he poses for pictures with his visitors, “always get the kids interested.”

AIG is dedicated to the proposition that the biblical story of the creation of the world is inerrant in every word. Which means, in this interpretation and among other things, that dinosaurs coexisted with man (hence the saddles), that there were dinosaurs in Eden, and that Noah, who certainly had enough on his hands, had to load two brachiosaurs onto the Ark along with his wife, his sons, and their wives, to say nothing of green ally-gators and long-necked geese and humpty-backed camels and all the rest.

(Faced with the obvious question of how to keep a three-hundred-by-thirty-by-fifty-cubit ark from sinking under the weight of dinosaur couples, Ham’s literature argues that the dinosaurs on the Ark were young ones, and thus did not weigh as much as they might have.)

“We,” Ham exclaims to the assembled, “are taking the dinosaurs back from the evolutionists!” And everybody cheers.

It’s actually a very long article that explores not just the museum, but this whole faith-based subculture. It’s interesting, read it if you have time. i.e. if you’re at work.

The link to the article is here. My footnote is below. Read that, too.

*1* – Pastafarians believe that not only were dinosaurs living amongst us a few thousands of years ago, but that they were tame and sometimes lived inside with us, like pets. The FSM has removed any evidence of this, however, for reasons that we don’t understand and don’t question. If I had a pet dinosaur, he would eat anyone I didn’t like.

Scott from the Netherlands writes:

I was amused today when I sat down in the train and the man opposite me was reading one of the popular free daily-papers intended for commuters — on the cover was an article about “God” and lo, the picture they used was His Noodly Appendage himself!

The title of the article is “What is your God called?”

For added amusement, the article down and to the left from FSM’s appearance is about Bush censoring a report on climate change — the only thing missing is a reference to pirates!

Religion beat became a test of faith

Published August 14th, 2007 by Bobby Henderson


I just read this article in The Los Angeles Times. A religion columnist for the Times questions his faith after the stories he covered deeply affected him: ex-Mormans ostracized by their friends and family for leaving the Church, the Catholic Church molestation and cover-up scandal, exploitation of the desperate by TV evangelists, etc.

Part of what drew me to Christianity were the radical teachings of Jesus — to love your enemy, to protect the vulnerable and to lovingly bring lost sheep back into the fold.

As I reported the story, I wondered how faithful Mormons — many of whom rigorously followother biblical commands such as giving 10% of their income to the church — could miss so badly on one of Jesus’ primary lessons?

I sought solace in another belief: that a church’s heart is in the pews, not the pulpits. Certainly the people who were reading my stories would recoil and, in the end, recapture God’s house. Instead, I saw parishioners reflexively support priests who had molested children by writing glowing letters to bishops and judges, offering them jobs or even raising their bail while cursing the victims, often to their faces.

TBN [Trinity Broadcasting Network]’s creed is that if viewers send money to the network, God will repay them with great riches and good health. Even people deeply in debt are encouraged to put donations on credit cards.

“If you have been healed or saved or blessed through TBN and have not contributed … you are robbing God and will lose your reward in heaven,” Paul Crouch, co-founder of the Orange County-based network, once told viewers. Meanwhile, Crouch and his wife, Jan, live like tycoons.

I highly recommend reading it. These are issues that caused a lot of people to lose faith in their religion – or at least faith in members and leaders of their religion. Happily, many have found a home here. I find these sorts of articles way more interesting than those by atheists and the anti-religious. Anyway, read it if you have a chance.

Purchase the Gospel

An elaborate spoof on Intelligent Design, The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster is neither too elaborate nor too spoofy to succeed in nailing the fallacies of ID. It's even wackier than Jonathan Swift's suggestion that the Irish eat their children as a way to keep them from being a burden, and it may offend just as many people, but Henderson puts satire to the same serious use that Swift did. Oh, yes, it is very funny. -- Scientific American.
