Understanding Pastafarianism

It is a satirical religion.

Founded by Bobby Henderson in order to battle against Creationism and the School Board who was trying to have Creationism taught in the school systems.

I DEMAND EQUAL CLASS TIME!!!!!   If you will teach about your God then I demand time be spent on my GOD, even if it is a Gigantic Flying Spaghetti Monster!

It grew from there.   People gravitate to it as a clever way to battle against Creationism and as a tool for argument.     The burden of proof is for YOU to prove WHY my God does NOT EXIST.

It is similar to the “Russian TeaPot.”   Also similar to the “Invisible Pink Unicorn.”

Also, if you are a Pastafarian then you can wear a Pasta Strainer on your head for your Driver’s License photo as a Religious HeadDress.

Instead of being an Atheist, you can choose to be a Pastafarian.

Introduction to Psychology (and Philosophy)

Some information on Psychology and with some Philosophy mixed in.

Psychology is the study of the mind and behavior.   All humans are affected by psychology.     Usually it becomes intertwined with Psychiatry … … which is in regards to mental disorders.

A lot of people think about SIGMUND FREUD.  He is one of the early fathers of the discipline.  He also helped to develop psychoanalysis.   CARL JUNG was also a player with FREUD.       Helping to develop the ideas of the “ID” and the “EGO.”

Freud pushed forward the idea of the “libido.”    How the human sex drive affects the mind.    It’s not too far fetched to produce the claim that Freud just so happened to have sex with some of his older female patients.

Many people find psychology interesting and it leads them to want to understand humans better.  This leads them into the realm of the “Social Sciences.”    Philosophy, Anthropology, Sociology, etc are the social sciences that people will move into when seeking to develop deeper thought on these topics (Also, Economics is an applied business form of Sociology … Thank you to Adam Smith).

This allows you to look into History.  An example is “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.”  It is a novel that became a famous movie.

Also there is the story of NELLIE BLY, who got herself committed to an Insane Asylum just to be an investigative reporter.  http://mentalfloss.com/article/29734/ten-days-madhouse-woman-who-got-herself-committed   (that is the article)

Then hopefully an interest in topics of humanity will make you think, “Did humans before me cause things to be the way they are?”     The answer:  Yes.        Further inquiry may cause you to debate the idea of Capitalism vs Socialism.      And this will lead you to look at “ADAM SMITH” vs “KARL MARX”

Also, the movies:  “Good Will Hunting” and “A Beautiful Mind” as well as “Fight Club” will push forward an interest in Human Psychology.   (Marx seen below)

Noodle World — Entry Feb 7.

White male.  Brown Beard.  Brown hair.  He wore a white robe. Sandals.  His face was calm.

The hairy white male scanned the smooth lake surface.   He slowly closed his eyes … … held them closed for 5 seconds and then opened them.    He placed his right foot forward.

 

On the other side of the lake, their was a pirate.   He was a smelly pirate and he had a beard.   This pirate wore black boots and looked like a smelly pirate.   This pirate enjoyed drinking Rum.  His name was Smelly Alfredo.

Smelly Alfredo looked out towards the lake.    There was a man.    Smelly Alfredo saw this man.

“Garrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr unbelievable.   He be walking on the water.”   Alfredo slurred his words.

The robed man with a beard was standing in the middle of the lake.  His feet were firmly on the top of the lake surface.   It appeared to be a miracle.

Smelly Alfredo reached into his Pirate Satchel (the official carrying sack of Pirate) and grabbed his Colander (Pasta Strainer).  He placed the pasta device on his head.   The colander infused him with Noodle Strength.    As Smelly Alfredo looked out onto the Lake he could see that the white-bearded-man was being held above the water by a large Noodle.   The Noodle was wrapped around his waist and the Noodley Noodle stretched up into the clouds.

“This man has been blessed by His Noodle.”  Smelly Alfredo removed his colander and went back to sleep to dream Pirate dreams.  “R’amen.”

Noodle World — New Entry (Feb 5)

I just don’t know man, I am having doubts… …

It seems hard to believe that this Noodle Monster is the creator!!!     I just don’t feel that there is a connection between Pirates and Global warming.     How do people know that it isn’t just a normally occurring phenomena?

Nobody feels weird about this?     They don’t think that it’s odd for us to worship a Noodle Monster???

Wouldn’t it make more sense for our Diety to be … I don’t know … a man?

“Woah man, you are sounding kind of crazy.”

Wouldn’t a powerful god create man in his image?  Why would a Gigantic Spaghetti Monster create human beings?

I know it’s the popular religion …. … but but but maybe there is an alternative?

I may consider seeking out a cult.

“Woah my man, I am a little bit worried about you.”

The Connected Countries of Western Pangea (A North American Satire)

“In recent news, an innocent man was shot dead.”  The newswoman was talking.  She was a pretty girl, with blond hair and blue eyes (obviously born and groomed to read the news on television).  “The 26 year old man, Michael Johnson, was shot and killed by a 55 year old Timothy Flanders.   The car of Timothy Flanders slid off the road due to ice, as Johnson parked his car and tried to come to Flanders’ aid … Flanders emerged from his car behaving in a belligerent way and fired his automatic pistol into Johnson.   While Johnson was on the ground, Flanders fired 3 more times, killing Johnson.    Flanders then got back into his car.   The Police and SWAT team came to arrest him; he resisted arrest.”  The blond girl looked into the camera, only slightly phased by the story.  “A tragic story indeed.   In recent news, a local bakery produced the world’s biggest cookie … … ”

Over in Eastern Pangea, 26 year old Graduate Students laughed at the stupidity of the people of Western Pangea.    “Can you believe this?”  “It is totally crazy over there.” “This is what happens when anybody can get a gun.”  The Eastern Pangea students laughed and laughed and drank some tea.

In Western Pangea, The supporters of guns were preparing their comeback.

White Leadership candidate #1:  The people of this great nation MUST have guns!  Without them we will be victims of terror!

White Leadership candidate #2: As human beings it is our God-given right to have access to guns!  I have faith that the people of Western Pangea will do the right thing and support our civil liberties!

White Leadership candidate #3:  It is a tragedy for that young man to lose his life, HOWEVER, it can not be calculated how many lives guns have SAVED as a result of the people of this GREAT nation having access to guns.   And once I am elected as your White Leader, I will ensure the supply of guns flows easily to the people!  So we may guarantee our safety on Domestic Soil!   God Bless Western Pangea!

“That’s our man right there,” spoke Bob Smith.   Bob Smith and Alan Ryan sat in high-backed chairs in their local Golf-and-Swim Club.  “White Leadership Candidate #3, I think he has our best interests at heart.”

Alan Ryan spoke up.  “It looks like this is the kind of man that the Western Pangea Gun Association can throw its vast resources behind.”

“All of these damn liberals are going to get up in arms about this young man’s death.  We are going to have to double down and make sure the people of Western Pangea know of the constant danger they are in.”  Bob Smith looked confident.

Members of the WPGA prepared to make numerous appearances on POX News and educate the people of Western Pangea about the Absolute Need for widespread access to guns.  Also, they made sure to prepare arguments in regards to the “Paper of Rights” and the necessary Freedom of the people to own guns.

Meanwhile, the Parents of Michael Johnson mourned the senseless death of their only son.

Noodle World — Entry #3

(Slam Dunk, Basketball)

“Oh yeah!  Big Dunk from B.J Besley!”  The commentator was excited.

Besley, a tall african american male, made a circular motion with his index and middle finger.

“Besley!  Stirring the pot!”

“Cooking up some pasta!”  The commentators maintained their excitement.

Besley made some motions with his hands as if to open up an imaginary can …

“Oh My Noodle!  Besley is opening a can of sauce!”

“Right you are Jim!  Could be Marinara!  He is adding the sauce into the noodles!”

“And he is stirring it up!”

“Showing some good respect to the church.”

B.J Besley reaches into his jersey and pulls out his chain, then he kisses it.  On the end of the chain is a small, golden Noodle Monster.

“He’s a religious man alright!  Without a doubt Besley is an individual who has indeed been touched by His Noodle.”

“So talented.  The power of carbs definitely flows through his veins!”

“R’amen Jim.  R’amen.”

John Every was watching the basketball game on his home television.  He shook his head.

Noodle World – Entry #2

Pastafarians celebrate every Friday as a Holy Day.

John enjoyed his Thursday.  The day was pleasant.  John had some delicious Hibachi shrimp at lunch time and he devoured a succulent lamb kebab at dinner.  Thursday was not a perfect day.  While eating his Hibachi Shrimp at Speedy Japan (the quick japanese food in the strip mall) he was uncomfortable with the wall decor.   There was a poster on the wall of a stout Asian man fishing in a small river with bamboo surrounding him  (which John expected from a Japanese restaurant).  However, next to the eastern influenced poster, there was a representation of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.  The Pasta Deity had one of his noodles around a samurai sword and at the bottom of the poster it read “HE is with Japan.”

John thought to himself, “This seems offensive to me.  Shouldn’t the people of Japan have some kind of native beliefs?”

After a night of sleeping the day had become Friday.  Many people were wearing their colanders.  John usually did not wear a pasta strainer on his head.  He personally thought it was “a little odd.”

He was having a hard time deciding on his Friday Lunch.  As John drove down the road he thought, “Maybe a chicken sandwich.”   He happened to be driving on BlackBeard Road which John remembered had a Chicken Phils.    He became excited as he got closer, imagining the delicious taste of that savory chicken sandwich in his mouth (maybe even with a Phd Pepper [a sweet soft drink]).

As his car came upon the Chicken Restaurant, his heart dropped upon seeing the store lights were not on.  “Damn!  It’s Friday.  Why would a fast casual restaurant see a need to close every Friday?!  Don’t they know I want to eat their chicken?!”  John was not happy.

As he drove to BeauJanes (another chicken restaurant) John thought questioning thoughts  over the influence that religion should have over business … …
