Hello, everybody!

I'm a high school chemistry teacher in northern IL. I grew up in a baptist home, attended a baptist church, went to a baptist school (k-12), even spent some time at Pensacola Christian College & Bob Jones University (yikes!). There were always a few things the Bible said that I couldn't reconcile, but finally, around age 22, i read a book from my then girlfriend's (now wife's) Jewish temple about inconsistencies between the OT & NT. Some of the conflicts were questions that I previously had, but this time i realized that the apologetics failed to reconcile the inconsistencies. I slowly began to realize that the Bible neither matches up to itself, nor does it match up to basic morality. I considered myself an adamant agnostic ( :mrgreen: ) until I read about the FSM around this time last year.

Hi I am John Willard, a Pastafarian for two weeks now that lives in Vermont. I am in college and am unsure of a major. I live the Pastafarian lifestyle which consists of lots of top ramen. I've read the gospel and then felt worthy enough to join the ranks! Hopefully here we can openly discuss ideals and beliefs without others becoming offended because that's what I like to do, besides waltzing around in my pirate garb, drinking grog, and having fun with my wenches.
I'm just in it for the pirate garb.

I actually had planned to rally support to get one. I plan to be a lawyer, then a judge. I have been told to go from there and be a politician, but i dont know about that yet.

As I've been spreading the word of the His Noodliness for a while now I thought it was about time that I nailed my colors to the mast, so to speak.

This would be my first post, as I am following the rules.
I am a great lover of FSM....I worship Him......and I like pasta. Yay pasta!
Pirates invade my high school every Friday, because we know that that is the only way to worship Him correctly, and we don't want him to be angry with us.
:fsm:
42 and FSM must have a connection somewhere. Perhaps He has 42 noodly appendages?
