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.

  • Greatest new Religon

    This is the greatest new religon for those who don't trust religon. What a great parody & a great read. Makes you wonder about other "hate filled religons" and why they do what they do. The link between global warming and pirates make more sense than any other explanation out there. Please to enjoy this great little book.

  • The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster

    The book is a cute satire attacking religion in the school systems. Know your audience well before gifting it. Otherwise, if you are open minded and have a sense of humor I thinik most people can enjoy this. I know the person I got the gift for certainly did.

  • AVAST! Ye Scurvy KBE!

    Those who fight to repeat the mistakes of our distant forefathers will be condeming their children to repeat the battles that got us out of the dung heap (or face the future in ignorance and poverty). Rejecting scientific reality in favor of "What I wish to be true" may have been fine when progress was measured in centuries, but with the breakneck speed of innovation, a society that opts out of the scientific method is locking it's children into a future of being menial laborers who have to save for years to buy the latest luxury items from advanced countries ... like Pakistan, or Nicaragua.

  • Interesting but why make it like a coloring book?

    This was entertaining to read, though I think the author should have put the book down when he was "done" and come back to it a few weeks later. There are some great arguments but some parts are to much like grade school poopie humor. Much like other reviews complained about, this book is made like a grade school coloring book. Same low grade paper with a normal grade price.
