Pastafarians rejoice, the flying spaghetti monster lives! Well, it lives in the media anyway, in this instance in UK tabloid the Mirror: A jellyfish like creature which has a striking resemblance to a parody…
Flying Spaghetti Monster
Thanks for the find from Cory Doctorow on BoingBoing:
Justin Griffith, an atheist in the US military, tells the story of how he ended up with ATHEIST/FSM on his dogtags. It all started when he enlisted as an atheist, only to have his recruiter record his religion as “Baptist.” Even switching recruiters didn’t end up with the error corrected. At boot camp, recruits were only allowed one “holy book” from their stated religion, so he brought The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, which became the most-loved book in camp, much-borrowed and re-read by the other recruits. Even his drill sergeant liked it. Kinda.
Feast your eyes on this, true believers. Via notetoself.net:

On this, the first of May 2010, I am proud to release this piece of sacred art which I commissioned from Sarah Pierce. I welcome you to join me in silent reverence to His Savoriness, the Noodle in the Sky, our Saucy Master, The Flying Spaghetti Monster. May you be forever touched by His Noodly Appendage.
