Welcome! Maybe you can help us make a legal argument for FSMism being taught in school.

Pittfan34: Glad to have another eastcoaster here. In New Jersey (you know - that place across the river) there aren't too many Pastafarians.

Being a somewhat tall man I fear I have never been touched by noodly appendages. I have been searching for my saviour for sometime but have never felt the presence of one. Being only recently pointed in the direction of the FSM I've begun to notice signs that beckoned me to post here. When I first visited the sight it caused a hearty laugh which made me accidently spill my ale and as I reached under the desk to retrieve it, there the FSM was! some may write my vision off as the twisted cables of an ancient computer that have long been neglected but I swear I saw the image of his most holy noodlyness! Several days later I was going about my work, I was driving around listening to the radio (yes truck drivers are as lazy as they look) when my second vision appeared. A seemingly innocent pothole struck the right front tire of my truck and then he appeared! A twisted mass of divine tentacles flailing about in front of me! I reached for them but alas when I touched them it seemed to be it was only the coax cable from my roof mounted CB, apparently it had fallen from its neatly stored location. Am I not worthy of a simple touch from him?! Am I doomed to an eternity of washing dishes and 2nd rate beer? I humbly ask for salvation and to be touched just once by his most wonderous noodle. Show me the PASTA!

PS. Given that I'm tall, if I'm touched and get a bit shorter, where does the height go? One can only pray that it goes into the noodle.

integrating FSM into family worship cycle

Postby pmk » Thu Jul 20, 2006 2:55 pm

I worship my wife. She worships our German Shepherd puppy. He worships me. None of us are midgets. I just want to make that clear. Not that it matters. But we're not. Anyway, if I begin to worship His Glutinous Glory, will our family's cycle be broken, or can I somehow secure a guarantee that He might occasionally worship our cat, who might be cajoled to worship my wife, thereby making the circle once again whole? Perhaps atheism was simpler, but it just lacks too many holidays for my lifestyle. That is all; return to your duties. --pmk

Perhaps the three of you are like the three corners of a piece of trenne, and all a part of His Noodlyness. Be sure to share a little pasta with your puppy (if it's a canine-healthy recipe) and I think the FSM will be pleased. There are a few men here with their own personal Goddesses, and He doesn't mind at all.

Welcome aboard!

Wotcher! My name is Rachel and I'm here to pose a few questions on the FAQ thread, get a less nebulous idea of what His Noodlyness expects from a proper Pastafarian, and look up to you all for better-worded pleas against unnecessarily blinkered curriculums in the sciences.

Hello.

What a refreshing attitude to discussion you have. I tend to frequent motorcycle forums where the debate tends to be a bit robust. Nice to find somewhere relaxed and polite.

I have to say that I'm ashamed that I have never done what's going on here - making it possible for people to say that they want religion kept out of science education. I could have built this sort of site, but was too lazy to do anything about the scary behaviour of some religionists, so just kept ranting in my blog, which no-one else ever reads.

My bike should look really good with its Pirate Fish sticker, when it arrives. Got to try to find a Pirate themed crash-helmet now :D

ajberrow...

Cool bike. Yours, or wishful thinking? I haven't had a bike for a long time. Used to have a Kawasaki 650 that I loved to ride.

A Ninja? You should get along well with Duke.

Hi all...

I'm Steve.


I just recently stumbled across your (our?) religion; and I must say, I am in awe!

None of the other, more "traditional" religions made any sense at all to me...

I had always considered myself an atheist, until I read of your belief system!


I'm a body piercer for a living, have been for almost 10 years now (Pirates like earrings, right? :fsm_yarr: ).

I swear like a sailor.

I have pirate tattoos.

I like spaghetti.

I like midgets.

I like strippers.


It's like I have been a true Pastafarian my entire life, but I never knew there was a "name" for it, or that there were more like me!


Thank you sincerely for enlightening me. :fsm:

I'm wondering if the proper way to make my introduction is just to say hi, or to say how I came about my decision to join the Church or something else? I guess I'll stick with a plain old hi. Can't go wrong with hi, can you? :mrgreen:
