Flying Spaghetti Monster


Okay - this via "The Liberal Dissenter".
The guys looking to teach Intelligent Design in Kansas schools face a bit of a quandry. A group of parents have asked that their belief that the world was created by a Flying Spaghetti Monster is also taught in Kansas schools. In an open letter they have laid out some compelling arguments in support of their views and also shown that global warming is directly related to the decline in pirates.

Have you been touched by his noodly appendage?

15 careful considerations:

Whereas the Jatravartid people of Viltvoddle VI believe that the entire universe was accidentally sneezed out of the nostrils of a being the call the great green arkleseizure. The Jatravatids live in fear of the time they call 'The Coming of the Great White Handerkerchief'.

LOL

Some people truly have too much time on their hands.

Then again, some say that about me. :)

I couldn't bring myself to comment re Intelligent Design and Intelligent Falling but I like the Spaghetti Monster.

May the length of the spaghetti go with you.

I seem to remember that the Jatravartids invented the deodorant before the wheel so that says a good deal about being designed (or evolved) with upwards of 50 arms!

Angie - Be in awe of his meatitude. Pastafarianism is the way!

Kat - you know it makes sense, may you be touched by his noodly appendage!

TRT said...

It is possible that humans also invented under-arm deodorant before the wheel given that some crystals are used for said purpose!

If we were created in God's image, and God IS a flying spaghetti monster, then shouldn't we also have 50 arms? And a coating of Bolognese sauce?

kat said...

Where does it say that the Spaghetti Monster created us in his image? Don't make the mistake mixing up the ingredients. :-)

Poor Leonardo! May he rest in peace.

"May the length of the spaghetti go with you"....lololol

All the comments are so witty I have nothing else to add.

Except maybe to consider whether it sticks to the wall or slides down in a mushy, slimy mess.

Nogbad said...

I'm sure Leonardo would approve! (But I can't remember which Ninja Turtle he was)

Mouse - I hope you feel the embrace of his noodly appendage :-)

TRT said...

It says in the bible that God created man in his own image! Although that's the Christian bible, and not 'Delia's Book of Pasta'.

I prefer to think of God as a giant profiterole so that worship would take the form of covering ourselves in a chocolate sauce. Well, it beats 'All Things Bright and Beautiful' and hanging around the vestry talking to the alter boys. oooerr!

kat said...

ummmmmmmmm chocolate sauce. I like the sound of that.

Nogbad said...

Ooooh! I sense that Kat may be moving towards Profitarolism and smearing herself in chocvolate sauce! :-)

TRT said...

For his services in promoting Pastafarianism I think Nog ought to be crowned the Bishop of Durum.

Nogbad said...

Tee hee - thanks GW :-)
