Im theghostofdarthvader. Im new to FSM-ism, but am an avid believer. I've shared pasta with several people and through calm, intelligent conversation, I have converted three people and am very excited about spreading the gospel.

Thanks!

Welcome Ghost, but I feel I have to slip into super Star Wars geek mode here:

Darth Vader does not have a ghost. Upon his death, he was redeemed, and restored to his pre-Vader Anakin Skywalker-self. There is therefore a ghost of Anakin Skywalker, but not a ghost of Darth Vader.

Regardless, we can always use another Star Wars geek!

Have fun while you're here, and if you have problems or questions, speak up!

Just doing my civic duty as a good pasta lover and putting my first post HERE. Myself and a couple of other weird people at my workplace have been following this site religiously(?) for a while, no pun intended. I have even ordered the Bible. Can not WAIT for it to come in. We are all waiting for the day when one of us has to go on a witness stand in a Ontario Courthouse and use OUR bible (which we are supposedly allowed). Will post the pictures on that truly great day of days.

Welcome to the ship! We may be experiencing some rough waters the next few days, but hang in there. Seasickness meds are available if needed.

thats my unobservant, lazy teenagerness and arrogant americanism coming together to not have read that, and not associate India as being Asian.

I apologize.

Floating Breadstick Creature

Postby FBC_lovesyou » Thu Sep 21, 2006 6:33 pm

Bobby, you have done a great job spreading the word of FSM, but you have only told half the story. Just in case you are unaware of Floating Breadstick Creature, I will procede to tell you of his wonders.
Over two thousand and six years ago in a time commonly refered to as "Before Creature" or B.C., FSM took one of his very own noodles and fried it in the furnaces of the sun. This fried noodle was then converted into the very first breadstick ever. FSM gave his followers this amazing wonder so as to guide them in the ways of Pastafarienism. The people were amazed at the breadsticks ability to rest on the ocean without sinking and thus called him the Floating Breadstick Creature or FBC. FBC then lived amung pirates for many years teaching them the appropriate way to articulate their arrrrrrs and also how to live under the great FSM.
After many great years FBC was discovered by the evil carb haters known as intolerentass (pronounced as in_toller_ent_tays). They killed all of the pirates and held FBC captive. FBC pleaded to his creature FSM to help him but FSM was so excited over his new invention of parmesan cheese that he did not hear FBC's cries for help. The intolerentass then decided to boil FBC to death in a great pot of garlic sause. Sadly, FSM was too late to save his one mortal noodle from death.
However, all is not lost, for all of FBC's teachings still exist today in the great Gospel of FSM version 2.0.
Thus is the story of Floating Breadstick Creature concluded
Floating Breadstick Creature is the way

please make sure you'v read the FAQ

Q: Hey! Wouldn't it be funny to say that the FSM has spoken to me/come to me in a dream/I am the FSM, and demand that you follow my ignorant, unsubstantiated schism or else be wrong?

A: No.


nothing wrong with writing scripture to this, just pre-emptively warning you that if you attempt to impose this belief upon others, you'll most likely be reprimanded. or generally ignored.

welcome anyway! :wink:
