Hi
Just for something to post on my first occasion I thought a quote by Stephen Roberts might suffice:

I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours

My you be touched by his noodly appendage

First post for me. Please let me know if I should post this somewhere else. I recently became aware of the FSM and after reading scripture, believe I was touched by his noodly appendage in the signs, visions, miracles . . . last year. Here is my testament:

In September of 2010, I traveled on a boat to the Isle of Wight (off the south coast of Britain) to attend a festival called Bestival. I entered and came upon a multitude of pirates dancing (although I had dressed as a pirate in a previous year, I had a different costume this time).

I went to a place called the 'Wishing Tree' where my friend had told me he was the DJ. There (at the base of a hill/very small mountain) I found a group calling themselves "The Siblinghood of the Adjoined Orbs" guarding a large structure they had built in the form of a tree.

They seemed to speak in tongues and perform ceremonies involving two spheres. One of them held a cabbage in each hand. (It is only now that I see they were vessels through which he spoke, that others might feel the power of his balls.) Though I grew impatient with waiting, I felt something draw me closer and in time was given entrance.

The inside of the tree was a small space with only a few people in it and alas my DJ friend was not playing. I stood still, silent, alone and thought I should leave.

Then low, there appeared a midget! Her eyes locked with mine, she approached and began to dance before me.

Then a tap on my shoulder, I turned to see my DJ friend standing next to me (I had missed his set). We stood for a time, while she danced, her eyes still fixed on me. Then we left that place to go have some tea.

It is only after discovering the church of the FSM, that I now believe this miraculous vision was a sign from the creator. For as it was written, he created ""a mountain, trees, and a midget. Remember, we are all His creatures." Perhaps he touched Bestival with his noodly appendage because so many there have honored him by dressing as pirates.

I hope that when Patafarians make pilgrimage to this holy site in 2011, that his sauce will again covereth them; that they may worship at the shrine that is the 'Wishing Tree'.

Also that the faithful will visit the Bestival forum thread 'Tree with a Midget in it' below, that it might be a mountain top from which to shout his word.

rAmen.

I welcome you to the church, spaghead, though as we have previously discovered with SisterSpagnostic, I would have hoped that You had used the holy google and entered "Spag" before chosing this as your name.

Welcome!

How about SiS? It works both for the first part of your name and as (SI)ster(S)pagnostic. And it sounds so familiar ;)

I clearly have much to learn. :) Perhaps should have gone with 'folkhead' since today I've been playing a tune from the 20s on piano, after changing the lyrics into an FSM hymn.

Thanks for the welcome. :)

Ahoy mates, my name's Jason. Until a couple weeks ago I was a Christian, but not a very good one. Now I'm a role model of a Pastafarian! Well, honestly I don't partake in many strippers, and I'm really only a social drinker, but I am spreading the word of His Noodliness any chance I get.

Praise noodles, sauce, and meaty balls.

So long, and thanks for all the fish!
