Maybe atheists ought to place this version of the Nativity scene at the state Capitol buildings:
(via Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster)
YES, this is exactly the kind of thing atheists should put up, given the opportunity!
Yes, much better! No words, just a visual representation of how basically silly religion is. And that baby FSM is SOOO cute!
I want one. The pirates are a nice touch.
I would put a few plastic dinosaurs there too. Maybe to replace the lamb.
Also; I’d put a statue of Joseph as a ninja instead. I’m sure there is an apocryphal gospel somewhere about him being a Kun-fu master…
Oh yeah, go ahead and put that up in front of buildings – a sure fire way to win the respect and admiration of all the religious folk.
The middle nativity figurine looks like a snowman/Joker. I can’t tell which.
Judging from the hullabaloo over the bus ads promoting atheism, it is apparent that we cannot gain the respect of (some) believers.
This FSM nativity is just a harmless parody. I like it, but it needs more sauce.
Instead of teens stealing GPS-equipped baby jesii(?) from nativity scenes and risk getting caught, they should just cover him up with the FSM. That way, everyone will be touched by his noodly appendage. (I am totally advocating *constructive* vandalism here) They could also glue in pirate hats to the three wise men
I agree with Simon. Every manger scene needs some dinosaurs. In fact, just take everything else out and put in some dinos. Jesus, Mary, the cuckolded Joseph, the three men of average intelligence, and whatever barnyard excuses for animals there are, just get rid of them all. All you need are dinosaurs.
Does this make Cap’n Jack Sparrow a holy figure?
It’s obvious that Jack’s a pirate saint to Pastafarians.
Norrington: “You are without doubt the worst pirate saint I’ve ever heard of.”
Jack Sparrow: “But you have heard of me.”
