How did you learn of His Noodly love?

Postby Cpt Celle » Thu Aug 14, 2008 6:09 am

My job at the theatre gives me ample chance to reach out to those oblivious of his Noodly love. Many Antwerp Pastafarians wil answer this question thus: it was captain Marcel that showed me the true path. :)
I read about the FSM in Richard Dawkins' book 'the god delusion', I googled it and converted instantly.

Well, like many interesting things, I found this while surfing the web at work. Found a link off a link off a link for however many generations, from either the freedom from religion website, talk.orgins.com, or religioustolerance.com. Really, sometimes I follow so many links at once my whole computer rebels.

Anyway, all of this particularly line of web-surfing came about because I was looking for some historically-based arguments for the latest person who told me that this is a 'Christian Nation" or, when I pointed out the 1st amendment to the US Constitution "you can't deny that the country was based on Judeo-Christian values". (Somehow, they never really seem to understand my actual interest when I ask them which American values are specifically Judeo-Christian).

So, I suppose, you could say that an evangelical xtian (or, rather, a series of them) led me to the FSM.

I was touched in my sleep. I'm sure it was the FSM, even though everyone says it was my cousin, Bobby. He even went to prison for it. They also found a ton of child porn that he got off of the internet. But I'm sure it was the FSM, because I don't think Bobby could get me there with just a rub. Hail Xenu. Now leave, Xenu, for you must do the laundry of the FSM.

I came across a mention of Bobby Henderson and his Open Letter while browsing through the James Randi Educational Foundation website.

I first heard about the FSM from my mother, actually, and decided to look into it more on my own.

xD Same here. My mom was talking with my grandmother about it and I did more research, and I found my perfect religion.

It's a broken hearts parade
And I'm putting my heart out on display
There's no masquerade
Just a funeral march for love today
The band strikes up and they're playing a song
Dressed in black, and we're singing along to the
Broken hearts parade
I've never been better then I am today

I found the book in the "humor" section in a store. I believe it was His will for me to find it there, He is wise enough to put it in the sections of the stores where those who would most enjoy his blessings were looking.

I was googling "atheism" and read about His Noodlyness on religioustolerance.org. From there, Wikipedia, from there, vengaza.org.

I first heard of his Noodly love through a friend of mine, And after being bugged and nagged for years by christian friends about how I was gunna burn in hell for not having a old man splash water in my face I felt compled to research what my friend had told me of The church of the flying spaghetti monster.

What I found interested me greatly, especially the parts about pirates. And thus it was, I felt touched by the great noodly appendage and thus became a Pastafarian. :worship: :fsm_float:

I heard of the FSM in Rolling Stone magazine, they had a tiny blurb about the fight to put the statue of the FSM up in Crossville, TN. I then googled FSM and then, I WAS HOME! :D

I first found Pastafarianism on Wikipedia when I was reading the article on creationism. I cloicked through on an article about some "Flying Spaghetti Monster" that I thought would be funny. (Little did I know that I was in for the biggest spiritual revelation of my life . . .)

Anyways, I read something about pirates on that page which I'd like to ask the community here about:

Their image as "thieves and outcasts" is misinformation spread by Christian theologians in the Middle Ages and by Hare Krishnas. Pastafarianism says that they were in fact "peace-loving explorers and spreaders of good will" who distributed candy to small children, and adds that modern pirates are in no way similar to "the fun-loving buccaneers from history."


This would be somewhat disappointing since it would make sense to me that none but a swashbuckling sort of bloke would have any impact at all on global warming.

Anyone?

Swashbuckling fits the ‘fun-loving buccaneers from history’ part: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swashbuckler

Pastafarian pirates are more mischievous than evil; more ‘Cut-Me-Own-Throat Dibbler’ than cutthroat.
