CAN I GET A “RAMEN” FROM THE CONGREGATION?!
Behold the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster (FSM), today’s fastest growing carbohydrate-based religion. According to church founder Bobby Henderson, the universe and all life within it were created by a mystical and divine being: the Flying Spaghetti Monster. What drives the FSM’s devout followers, a.k.a. Pastafarians? Some say it’s the assuring touch from the FSM’s “noodly appendage.” Then there are those who love the worship service, which is conducted in pirate talk and attended by congregants in dashing buccaneer garb. Still others are drawn to the Church’s flimsy moral standards, religious holidays every Friday, or the fact that Pastafarian heaven is way cooler: Does your heaven have a Stripper Factory and a Beer Volcano? Intelligent Design has finally met its match–and it has nothing to do with apes or the Olive Garden of Eden.
Within these pages, Bobby Henderson outlines the true facts– dispelling such malicious myths as evolution (“only a theory”), science (“only a lot of theories”), and whether we’re really descended from apes (fact: Humans share 95 percent of their DNA with chimpanzees, but they share 99.9 percent with pirates!)
See what impressively credentialed top scientists have to say:
“If Intelligent Design is taught in schools, equal time should be given to the FSM theory and the non-FSM theory.”
–Professor Douglas Shaw, Ph.D.
“Do not be hypocritical. Allow equal time for other alternative ‘theories’ like FSMism, which is by far the tastier choice.”
–J. Simon, Ph.D.
“In my scientific opinion, when comparing the two theories, FSM theory seems to be more valid than classic ID theory.”
–Afshin Beheshti, Ph.D.
Read the book and decide for yourself!
Bobby Henderson holds a B.S. in physics, and although he has received several job offers from Las Vegas gambling interests (really... we're serious), he currently supports himself as a full-time prophet. Bobby got his start as a prophet in 2005, shortly after the Flying Spaghetti Monster appeared before him and disclosed that He was the true creator of the universe. The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster is his first religious tome. --このテキストは、ハードカバー版に関連付けられています。

As far as religious texts go, this is probably the most entertaining gospel I have ever read. The book clearly defines the religious practices and beliefs of the followers of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, along with contrasts to other currently popular religions. Many current debates that have our society separating church and state are discussed in clear and logical ways to bring the reader to the conclusion that the Flying Spaghetti Monster is a loving and caring deity who wants humans to be happy and live fulfilling lives.
Some things I learned from this book:
1. Gravity is actually the result of the FSM (Flying Spaghetti Monster)'s invisible noodly appendages lovingly holding everything down on Earth where we are safe.
2. Heaven awaits the faithful with beer volcanoes and a stripper factory.
3. Ramendon, Pastover, Holiday (a.k.a. December), and every Friday are religious holidays that should be celebrated by consuming carbs and intoxicating beverages.
Much of the content is available for free if you search for "Great Spaghetti Monster" and visit the main website.
Anyone interested in religion - especially the battle over evolution teaching in the schools - will find this book interesting.
