Flying Spaghetti Monsterism gets national press attention

| 28 Comments | 3 TrackBacks

Flying Spaghetti Monsterism has officially hit the bigtime. See “Spaghetti Monster Stringing Us Along,” in the Hartford Courant. This national press attention obviously proves that there is a scientific controversy over His Noodly Appendage, which should be taught in public school science classrooms in Kansas and elsewhere. Really, the views of Pastafarians are just as legitimate as anyone else’s views on origins, so they deserve promotion at state expense also. Or are you against free speech and academic freedom?

The Flying Spaghetti Monster theory of the universe is gaining national attention. We demand that Flying Spaghetti Monsterism be taught in science rooms! Hell, it has as much evidence as ID. Also, it must be taught in full pirate regalia. (Via The Pa... Read More

I want equal time.

Are you sure that wasn’t the Hartford Currant?

For the last time, get it through your thick heads that it’s His Noddle-A Appendage, not “His Noodle-E Appendage” (which your incompetent and corrupt transliteration from Noddle-ese has somehow led you to render in the form of the homophone “Noodly”).

If you Noodle-Es (and, that’s right, all you Noodle-Bs, Cs, and Ds,and all you other defectors from the True Faith (c)™) don’t desist from your heresy right now, you’re doomed to burn in–horrors!bolognese sauce forever.

Sheesh, “NoodleAst” number one and “NoodleAst” number two!

You fringe sect members are bad enough without posting your kooky slightly-variant texts on a respectable cold-sober science blog!

blasphemers!

the noodly apendages of OUR MONSTER/OUR CREATOR are not formed of spaghetti, but are in fact formed of the most glorious al dente fettucine. OMOC does not look kindly upon those who would mistake his most hearty, scrumptious tendrils for an inferior, weak and spindly pasta such as spaghetti or even GASP! dare i say it? yes i must…angel hair.

you have been warned.

Hey, quit wasting time on the computer again and bring my double-cheese with mushrooms. I’m hungry, dammit.

Sorry, sir! In the future, I’ll defend the ineluctable indubiability of Pizza Shroomism on my own time.

Now, about those measly tips…

When devotees of the Flying Linguine Monster start suicide bombing you, maybe then you will learn the evils of your blasphemous ways.

I believe in pasta…not necessaryly the FSM..but in a heretical ziti sect.…

but look at this

Such literal interpretation is essential, Sharp said, because “If we lose Genesis as a legitimate scientific and historical explanation for man, then we lose the validity of Christianity. Period.”

oh god in heaven extend your flour/water/salt appendages and strike down the blasphemers…

This post must be intended to confirm this one.

It’s not that ID is completely about faith but the fact that they can completely ignore the overwhelming evidence of evolution!

Does any ID’er say, “I believe in a Designer despite the overwhelming evidence of evolution. Crazy, is it not?”

Arr, tis plain ye are ALL backsliders! Ken ye not that the brotherhood takes a dim view of yer inability to speak the true language ‘O the gospel? Tis no wonder that such blasphemy should fear yon black spot!

Aye mateys…

Rules? They’re more like guidelines really.

Arr…

Arr! A proper pyrate. Belike methinks tis time to pop in “Yellow Beard”! Now where’s me pyrating outfitt?

Will there be a schism between those who twirl their pasta on a spoon, and those who use the side of the plate? I predict heavy times ahead.

I abhor how little attention is being paid to the “twice baked” model of spaghetti monsterism (best summed up in Fazolli’s 2004 paper)

I understand your relucatance to acknowledge the heretical non-twirling slurpers.

Re “the heretical non-twirling slurpers.”

I resemble that remark!

Pasta la vista!

Remember, guys: although houses of worship can be found in every town, the very heart, the Holy See of Flying Spaghetti Monsterism, can only be in Italy (maybe not in Rome, possibly in Naples…)

You should start collecting your dues for the construction of a giant Flying Spaghetti Vatican in the shade of Mt. Vesuvius. For every $1,000 collected you’ll receive a Blessed Box of durum semolina spaghetti…

I’m hungery.

Didn’t Marco Polo bring the worship of pasta from China to Italy? If so then he must be one of the early evangalists and should be considered for sainthood.

Nonsense! Flying Spaghetti Monsterism first started in China as Flying Mien Monsterism. It spreaded to Asian countries, as Flying Udon Monsterism in Western Japan, Flying Soba Monsterism in Eastern Japan, Flying Pho Monsterism in Vietnam, Flying Pad Thai Monsterism in Thailand, etc.

It’s so typical of some extremists who are uncomfortable with non-Western origin of Flying Spaghetti Monsterism. They want to mislead the public by deceit and propaganda…

I strenuously object to your requests to include “Flying Spaghetti Monsterism” into the Educational System.

This is clearly a blatant attempt to subvert the education process, and introduce Cthulhu worship by another name.

This is just the way Cthulhu, and he-whose-name-must-not-be-spoken, would sneak the mind bending insanity of Yog-Shoggoth past the innocent eyes of the Kansas Board of Education.

See the nasty tentacles, labelled “noodly appendages”. The tasty meat balls, the alfedro sauce.

It’s a trick, I tell you, a trick!

“burn in—horrors!—bolognese sauce forever.” No, no, no. Bolognese is reserved for lesser sins such as failing to keep your hook properly polished and sharp or wearing your eye patch on the wrong side. True torment comes in the form of… dare I say it.… pesto for eternity!

Robert Leyland, Although some Pastafarians just so happen to believe in the Old Ones and make sacrifices to the crawling choas, that doesn’t mean that the two are related. We just want kids to hear both sides. We have to teach the pastaversy.

Fools! Fools! You all think this spaghetti monster business is a joke when it is really a Taoist plot. It is well known that the noodle in the won ton soup traditionally consumed at Chinese New Year is actually a symbol of mystic All, aka the Great Clod.

Heretics!

Bolognese? Pah! Fettucine? Get real! Examination of the Dead Pasta Sheets reveals his so-called “noodly appendages” are actually made of spaghetti marinara. Popular representations of the Spaghetti Monster featuring meatballs are quite erronious.
