The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster
By Bobby Henderson

Estimated Length:
8.2 hours

It all began in June 2005 when Bobby Henderson of Oregon wrote an open letter to the
Kansas School Board proposing a third alternative to the teaching of evolution and intelligent
design in schools. Bobby is a prophet of sorts, the spiritual leader of a growing, world-wide
group of followers who worship the teachings of The Flying Spaghetti Monster (FSM). The
FSM appeared to Bobby as a giant ball of spaghetti, with meatballs for eyes, and touched
Bobby with "His noodly appendage"--resulting in the revelation that the FSM is the real
creator of the universe. The FSM faithful look to Bobby as their prophet and spiritual leader.
They call themselves FSMists or "Pastafarians." Shortly after Bobby's revelation and his
letter to the Kansas School Board, a website (www.venganza.org) came into existence to
promote the word. Then came the articles, which were worldwide: The New York Times, The
Washington Post, The Guardian (UK), Die Welt (Germany), Surprise (Austria), and many
others chimed in to report the existence of the FSM. Bobby received letters of support from
academics and Kansas School Board members alike--not to mention a couple million hits per
day on the website. Then students began proselytizing across campuses nation-wide, and it
was all-too-clear that there needed to be a book to lay out FSM scripture, rites and
observances, proofs, and answers to the Big Questions. With its loose moral standards, and
the offer of a heaven featuring both a stripper factory AND a beer volcano, Pastafarianism
will only grow in numbers. Those people are going to want to read this book.
