Apparently Pastafarians don’t have any rules about idolatry, because over on ebay, a a Handmade Flying Spaghetti Monster Plush Doll has received 36 bids and is currently selling for $242.50. I don’t even know who is running the auction, but evidently all proceeds (which will be matched by the dollmaker’s employer) will be donated to NCSE, which by the way is something you should consider doing anyway if you support our mission.

That looks like it would make a great doggie toy. But not for $250. Oh well, maybe they’ll have a $10 version out next year. In the meantime, the dog will have to be satisfied with the plush tree stump filled with squeeky squirrels.

Man, I wish I had enough bucks to throw at something like that. I think I’ll just get a Steve Steve instead.

BTW, All Things Considered just ran a promo for an “ID sparks culture wars in academia” (paraphrase) story tonight.

Here’s the spot for all thing Pastafarian:

Where’s my crochet hook?

I feel some creativity coming on…

He’s so cute! For a deity, that is.

“cute” is a subjective term, very much like “irreducibly complex”.

er, which begs the question: which subjective term do folks think FSM would prefer applied to his holiness?

If the FSM ever produces an epistle then the DI will have incontrovertible evidence for ID.…oh wait.

FSM blatantly wants to be considered “edible” as evinced by His Holy Food of long thin pasta. So Bob Davis had the right idea here :)

It’s a serious offense to mock the Flying Spaghetti Monster!

Yes I agree, are you mocking pseudo science or is this some sort of joke

.…hang…on

i get it

your mocking pseudo science AND it is this some sort of joke

@#$%^&*(‘s!

One up on the trinity! Divine Noodles Holy Meatballs Sacred Sauce AND Angelic Cheese Sprinkles!

Unless Philip Johnson is right that evolution is a world view in competition with christianity (and he isn’t), then parodies of creationism should be carefull not to cross over into parodies of religion. That is a difficult path to walk, and flying spaghetti monsterism fails completely. It in fact has become a parody of Christianity, as Just Bob’s post shows.

Those who indulge in flying spaghetti monsterism should be aware that neutral Christians, ie, Christians only lightly adhereing to creationism because they have not yet been presented with the evidence for evolution will view flying sphaghetti monsterism as a mockery of their religion. As a result they will be less open to an objective examination of the evidence; and regard claims by evolutionists to be opposed to creationism, but not to religion to be lies.

AND Angelic Cheese Sprinkles!

where do the red pepper flakes come in?

tom_kbel makes a good point. As I wrote to a private email list yesterday upon revisiting veganza.org, “FSM seems to have slipped a bit from its original mission of making fun of ID, to commenting on religion generally, which is not always as silly as ID.”

Someone should really start marketing that FSM doll to museum giftshops. I think they’d sell quite well, and they wouldn’t have to put up explanatory info that would offend people.

Alice from the “Vicar Of Dibley” TV show made pasta soft toys. But hers had real pasta as the stuffing - cooked and wet for squidginess.

FSM seems to have slipped a bit from its original mission of making fun of ID, to commenting on religion generally, which is not always as silly as ID.

Since intelligent design is a religion, it’s not really hard to see how something making fun of that specific religion could “slip” to making fun of intelligent design’s parent religion - Christianity.

This of course is one of the “authoritative markers” behind the DI they know that their wedge has at least some sort of “divine imprimatur” read “natural sympathy” from main stream religion.

The Catholic Church correctly identifies this as Dangerous Fundamentalism because it derives part of its energy from an intolerant, bigoted, egotistical and Oedipal opposition. The very things the DI is using to kill knowledge and replace it with ignorance.

Attack their substance not the their feelings.

OPEN EPISTLE TO KANSAS SCHOOL BOARD November 8th, 2005 I write with joy and thanks in my heart for your bold decision to teach Kansas schoolchildren of The Intelligent Design GOD IDio. Finally, The Church of The Intelligent Designer needs no longer cower behind a façade of science.

Now that your establishment of IDio has rendered the Constitution’s first amendment inoperative, we can proudly proclaim in every Kansas classroom, “There is but one Intelligent Designer and His Name is IDio!” Thanks be to the taxpayers of Kansas for donating their money to proselytize for His church. May IDio mutate you all intelligently.

Just seen an advert on TV over here in the UK. It was for “Bachelors noodles”. Creatures exactly resembling the FSM was dancing around on forks.

Does that count as a sighting, or does it being TV negate that claim?

The FSM cult movement seems to be spreading.

Not was; but were
