My parents keep saying this is all a joke, and its making me doubtful. How do I convince them the FSM is real?

*blinks* depends if you truly believe in the FSM, doesn't it? Do you actually believe there is an omnipresent being of pasta who created the earth? Or are you in it for the fight against teaching Intelligent Design in classrooms?

It's as real as any religion out there. Just doesn't have recognized places of "worship", other than Italian restaraunts. Depends on your faith and belief system. But, this started out as trying to make a point (Whioch I'm sure was lost on the intended recipients) with the Kansas school board who wanted to teach ID/creationism as a legitiment science in Kansas public school classrooms.

A combination of approaches might be best:

1. Use statistics:

:fsm_yarr: How do they explain the well established link between the decrease in the number of pirates and the increase in world temperature?

2. Use logic:

:? Why don't your parents float off into the air if Hid Noodliness isn't there to hold them down?

3. Use Hard Evidence.

8) How do they explain authentic FSM photographs? http://www.venganza.org/images/wallpapers/pasture1600x1200.jpg

4. Use demographics.

:fsm_ninja: How do they explain the recent explosive spread and current wide support for His Noodliness if the FSM hasn't been guiding us with his noodly appendages?

5. Use a challenge.

:x If none of that convinces them then ask them to supply hard, indisputable evidence that Jesus Christ was not the son of a divine pasta being.

As Dirk Gently would probably have said, "If it looks like a Spaghetti Monster and it flies like a Spaghetti Monster, we have at least to consider the possibility that we have a multi-appendaged pastadeity on our hands."
If it looks like a spaghetti monster, and flies like a spaghetti monster, we have at least to consider the possibility that we have a multi-appendaged pastadeity on our hands.

tell them they have a choice: a son who believes in a deity system based on food......or a system based on logical conjecture with overwhelming evidence to back it up.
