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.

My fiance and I laughed ourselves silly reading this book. Yes, Henderson does intend for this to be a mockery of religious fanaticism, but it's also so funny you could pass out from laughing at it. I have decided that my kids will be raised up in the church of the flying spaghetti monster.

This book was hilarious from the very first page and kept growing. Honestly this was a very funny and interesting book, amazed at the creativity and how it goes about spoofing upon current date theories and other religions it proved to be very funny. With a heaven all about a beer filled volcano and a stripper factory, and theories as to how the FSM (Flying Spaghetti Monster) guides us along this world we call Earth and how us humans came about (From pirates..) This book was incredible and would recommend to anybody with a great sense of humor and the time to read a spoofy book. Two Thumbs Up :D

I bought this book for my daughter Jewell, who is a happy, well-adjusted atheist, honor student, cellist and Pastafarian. May she be forever Touched by His Noodly Appendage and bask in the warmth of His Sauce.

and by the time you finish reading this, you will pray to become touched, also. Course, friends and family will think you Have become a bit 'touched'... Wonderful bit of satire, thought provoking, a semi-serious discussion of the whole ID-Creationism red herring the Republicans are using on the US to distract us from the real problems facing us now. This book is something to really smile with, to stop the tears for just a bit. RAmen

The gosepel of the Flying Spahetti Monster will explain all there is to explain about Him. Join our church. Ramen. In the name of the noodle, the sauce, and the holy meatballs.

The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster explains to us how we came to be. Beleiving it is just as good as any intelligent design theory. You too should read about our Noodley Master and become touched by His Noodley Appendage...In a very private way. Arrgh, Flying Spaghetti Monster bless you all. Ramen.

I highly recommend this Book. I hope it changes your life as it has mine. May you forever be touched by the dangling of His Noodly Appendage.

This was a very good book that has caused me (an atheist) to seriously consider converting to FSM. Not alot of religions-Not even the Church of Captain Falcon of Later-Day Brawlers-have been able to grip me as well as Pastafarianism does. RAmen.

This is a great book! It is funny while still pointing out the illogical thinking of religion. Can I get a RAmen from the congregation?

The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster exposes once and for all the truth of human creation (that is if you view creation with Pastafarian eyes). It also shows the glories of Heaven (the Beer Volcano was my favorite) Can I get a Ramen?

The Flying Spaghetti Monster is the one true path. To suggest otherwise is to question the all-mighty nature of the FSM. How dare someone question the FSM, HEATHENS!

I am a devout pastafarian and it is my prayer that all will read the word (or have it read unto them by pirates) and obey the noodly master. Ramen.

This book will save you from the Borg-agains. Convert to Flying Spaghetti Monsterism Today. The First United Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster is a pasta loving group of pirates who have been touched by his noodly appendages. You too can be touched and discover the truth. Ramen!
