Hey, I discovered the great FSM on Wikipedia, and after reading about it, I was an instant convert. I have been thinking for a while about ID, and you guys have the perfect way of showing how non-scientific it is. I am now a proud Pastafarian.

Greetings from Shanghai, PRC.


I'm now a small condiment to this great pirate meatball sauce.

Peace, Pasta and Marinara.
Tasty Cheese !

Hello

I am an educator who calls upon the power of the FSM when beset by the minions of various flavors of fundamentalism as regards evolution and human behavior. And I have always been a PIRATE!

An educator! Wonderful! Check out the Cause forum, and who knows, indoctrinate all the kidz?

You should also speak to Al Dante, another one of our members. (Just because of the name, really.)

Welcome!

I will do that. My son is studying to be an educator as well, he and many of his friends at W&M are converts to the cause. Though I am unsure as to my son's true belief as he seems to be surrounded only by pirate wenches....woe that I was not enlightened as an undergraduate many years ago

Alright, I'm OMG He's Jewish!. But you can call me 'The Jewish Kid'. I'm actually only half Pastafarian *gasp*, because I can't completely give up being Jewish (at least not until I cease to be a minor). I found out about this after a friend read me and some other kids, the School Board Letter. I have 1 week of pirating experience. So... Yeah... Here I am...

You can be 100% Jewish - the FSM only requests that you have no Monster before Him, but He doesn't particularly care about gods or such.

:twisted: I'M INside! Helllooo
Very glad to be accepted into the fold. It took a while and perhaps a small gratuity. Not complaning , grateful.
Here's the letter to SR Henderson that may have tipped the scale .
I was turned over 2 months ago and will do my best to influence others. Saxon

How do I address you ,
Sir ?
Father?
Abbot?
Gastronome?
I am humbled , both because I don't know how to begin this letter and also because I evidently don't know how to join a group.
Twice(because I Want to believe) I have tried to register for
Discussion. I want to believe and learn.
Still no go. I cant get a confirmation letter or link.
So I'm feeling humbled and unworthy. Is it that I am meritless,insalutary,unsuitable or that I don't know how to fill out a form.
I have tried with the name Saxon , an oddly descriptive tag ,and this e-mail address. But I'm very willing to go with any other moniker you might prefer. I love the word Balsamic in pretty much any context.
Please send guidance wisdom counsel or perhaps a link .
I know lots of words, live on the side of a mountain, maybe even
The mountain ,like some little people and am willing to pander and bribe my way in.
My brother is reluctantly willing to take a picture of the FSM on his old Land Rover in Salisbury with some grumbled possibility of in front of Stonehenge.
?? Yes ?
I Want to be touched by his noodly presence
(not my brothers , eeww)
Thank You for being here and there
SSB

Hi

I'm monkey boy or mboy for short...

...I'm a vegetarian pastafarian (that has a nice ring to it)...so I am still wrestling with the meatball issue...

That aside I am very excited to be here and and hope I make a worthy pirate...guess I have really been a closet pirate all my life..... :fsm_yarr:
