The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster

Bobby Henderson

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was ‘Arrrgh!’” Fear not, loyal worshippers of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, because there is now a good book upon which you may base your beliefs. Following the 2005 movement to counter so-called “Intelligent Design,” considered a teaching curriculum for thinly veiled faith-based science, founder and physicist Bobby Henderson has penned this guide to the spirituality now followed by thousands of “Pastafarians” world-wide. In it, you’ll learn of “The Blunders of Science,” an explanation of Pastafarianism and “The Pastafarian Guide to Propaganda,” as well as many scientific proofs. The disclaimer covers those who may be offended and indicates that while Pastafarianism is based on empirical evidence, it’s a faith-based book and the “holes and blatant lies” in the text have been placed there to test the reader’s faith. The proofs make for good debates over platters at the Old Spaghetti Factory with friends and doubters; for example, the physics of “String Theory” make sense as the Flying Spaghetti Monster “created the matter in the universe in His own quivering [noodly] image!”
