FSM in MSM

| 39 Comments | 1 TrackBack

The mainstream media is finally coming to terms with the truth of His Lord, the Creator.

One woman even wrote in to say that she had “conceived the spirit of our Divine Lord,” the Flying Spaghetti Monster, while eating alone at the Olive Garden.

“I heard singing, and tomato sauce rained from the sky, and I saw angel hair pasta flying about with little farfalle wings and playing harps,” she wrote. “It was beautiful.” The Spaghetti Monster, she went on, impregnated her and told her, “You shall name Him … Prego … and He shall bring in a new era of love.”

But has anyone ever converted to a parody religion?

I understand Jedi Knight has done well in a few censi (censuses?). I would also be willing to categorize Scientology as a parody religion.

But, is Phillip Johnson laughing?

Is the Kansas SBOE desperately trying to get theologians to answer the challenge?

Amen to that… or should I say: RAmen. It’s funny to see how the Pastafarian thing has taken off, but it’s nice to see that more people out there than just us think this whole “teach the controversy” thing is ridiculous.

Hey, could somebody post the email addys of the conversatives on the Kansas board of education. I seriously intend to write them and demand that they teach about the FSM.

Already been done. See here for details. This site includes contact info for the whole school board.

Don’t forget Tom Robbins’ theory that mankind was invented by water as a means of transporting itself from place to place.

“But has anyone ever converted to a parody religion?”

Clearly the author is not a Discordian. Except that, of course, she is a genuine certified pope of Eris.

“You shall name Him … Prego … and He shall bring in a new era of love.”

How dare she!!!!!

His real name is Ragu.

Schismatic witch.

Parody? What parody? The flying spaghetti monster is no parody - although he does have good press. And its adherents I’m sure are quite serious. Pasta is serious business in this country, and some European ones too. And I quote, “And they shall eat of the fruit of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, and they shall have filled bellies and feel full and satisfied.” Truer words I know not.

Any excuse to dress like a pirate and run around sayig “Arr, ye scurvy dogs” is good enough for me- serious business or not. In honor of the FSM I’ve penned a short psalm, for a parody deity requires parody scripture as well.

That should be “saying”, not “sayig”.

Arrrr!

It’s about time FSM got some mainstream media coverage. As a Pastafarian and follower of the One True Religion, I am appalled at the constant persecution and censorship of Flying Spaghetti Monserists. You can’t even see full frontal noodlety on TV except late at night on cable. It is disgusting! How can we spread His sauce and teach the pastaversy under such oppression?!?!

Of course, you realize that if we theologically disagree on whether His Name is Prego or Ragu, something like this (heavily plagiarized) conversation will take place.

REG: Listen. If you really wanted to join the F.S.M., you’d have to really hate the IDers. BRIAN: I do! REG: Oh, yeah? How much? BRIAN: A lot! REG: Right. You’re in. Listen. The only people we hate more than the IDers are the fucking Spaghetti-Flying Monsterians. F.S.M.: Yeah… JUDITH: Splitters. F.S.M.: Splitters… FRANCIS: And the Intelligent-Falling Spaghetti Monsterites. F.S.M.: Yeah. Oh, yeah. Splitters. Splitters… LORETTA: And the Flying Spaghetti Monsterians. F.S.M.: Yeah. Splitters. Splitters… REG: What? LORETTA: The Flying Spaghetti Monsterians. Splitters. REG: We’re the Flying Spaghetti Monsterians! LORETTA: Oh. I thought we were the Spaghettian Fliers. REG: Flying Spaghettarians! C-huh. FRANCIS: Whatever happened to the Spaghettian Fliers, Reg? REG: He’s over there. F.S.M.: Splitter!

That settles it. Now that PT features fisking of creationists, FSM discussions, and Monty Python references, I really don’t need to visit any other blogs. Yep, its all right here. I’m gonna set my firewall to block everything else.

… except Pharyngula of course.

A pasta-related religious experience in the Olive Garden? Surely you jest. Olive Garden is to Italian food what Taco Bell is to Mexican.

Unless… surely not…

… Perhaps this is the first sign of the wily ways of the dreaded Anti-Flying Spaghetti Monster! The Great Deceiver, Bringer of Botulism, Intestinal Malefactor! Saints preserve us, the end is nigh!

Do not be fooled! His lies are too many be counted, like flakes of Parmesan upon a mountain of unholy arrabiatta! (Okay, I got nothin’.)

No, the name of the Great Deceiver is Chefboy Ardeee.…

RE: Scientology as a parody religion

Years ago a friend of mine who was a scholar of obscure SciFi said that L. Ron Hubbard early in his career had written a story in which the VILLAIN had invented a bogus religion to gull and exploit people. I’ve never been able to chase down a confirmation of this. Does anyone have a clue?

W. S. Wilson, the best place online to learn all about Hubbard and Scientology is here

Must you engage in blasphemy? Is this really necessary?

I have always found that using Hubbard’s first name, Lafayette, is a sure-fire way to annoy scientologists. As creationists are calling scientists “Darwinists” these days, perhaps “Behemoths” could be a useful name for IDers.

You know, some IDists won’t be able to tell where the parody starts or ends … watch Dembski’s blog!

Is there one particular deity you don’t wish to see blasphemed, or are you concerned about all of them? If the former, why should your preferences receive higher considerations than anyone else’s?

Must you engage in blasphemy? Is this really necessary?

“Blasphemy”? What on earth does science have to do with “blasphemy”?

And here I thought you were just a crusading scientist, out to rescue science from the hidebound orthodoxy that unfairly rejected your long-dead heroes.

Turns out you’re just another preacher after all, huh Blast. And just like every other IDer I’ve ever seen, you’ve no compunction at all about lying about it.

Uh-oh, there goes that whole “monotheism” thingie . … .

Unless … WAIT !!!!

Surely the Bringer of Botulism is NOT really a Spaghetti Monster, but just LOOKS and ACTS a lot like one . …

Maybe just a failed noodle that was cast off the plate and condemned to the floor, along with the meatball that fell from the top of Old Smokey?

So the Great Deceiver and His Host are NOT really spaghetti noodles — just vermicelli’s. Just little bitty spaghetti noodles.

Monotheism is saved !!!!

Bless us all with your noodly appendage.

OK, let’s try to wind up this thread.

How does ID differ from FSM?

It seems to me that they are the same except that FSM has the meatballs to name the [choral_moment] Designer. [/choral_moment]

One could argue that ID is serious, but seriously…

Check out the FSM website and what do they have: pictures, t-shirts, mugs, car stuff and a theory.

Check out the ID website and what do they have: *crickets chirping*

I’d say that all things considered, being even stephen, in a gould sort of way, that FSM has a slight edge over ID.

R:amen

The Messiah’s name is Al Dente, and there’s an end to it!

Well, to be fair, they have some of the t-shirts, mugs and car stuff.

The evidence for design is everywhere. Noodly strands of DNA, galaxies that spiral like glistening pasta, life itself originating in a bubbling primordial marinara sauce! It all points to the divine strand of the great Flying Spaghetti Monster.

None are so blind as those who will not see.

Ay! AAAAAAARRRRRRRRR! Tis becoming a parody society, methinks, so all seems shipshape and proper. What think ye, Polly?

AAwk, Know what I mean? [nudge,nudge]”Dubloons” Arrk!

Here are some clues for the clueless: People don’t restrict their behavior to what is necessary, nor should they. Every religion blasphemes against some other. If God exists, he’s not so petty as to mind my saying that he sucks donkey dong.

Where’s the Ecclectic Assembly of the Products of All Grains? They have kick-arse pasta-and-beer nights.

Rustopher.

And at Pasta and Beer night, you literally eat the Body of FSM.

Hey Blast -

Lighten up and get a fucking life. (sorry for the F-bomb everyone, but this jackass deserves it.)

This is getting out of hand. FSMs are everywhere and nowhere and on T-shirts too. That’s enough evidence for me. ID is nowhere and nowhere and there are no good T-shirts. That’s also enough evidence for me.

If those theoretical physicists would just rename string theory to spaghetti theory, maybe it would catch on.

Perhaps this is the first sign of the wily ways of the dreaded Anti-Flying Spaghetti Monster!

Are you speaking of the evil antipasto?

Check out this album:

Spaghetti Theory

A Google search turns up many other instances of spaghetti theory. String theory still beats spaghetti theory by 770,000 to 178 in a googlefight

Pasta la vista!
