Pastafarian Bus Campaign!

As a committed and practising Pastafarian, I've been very upset by the recent Atheist Bus project. Those of us that have been touched by His noodly appendage can only be offended and upset by the idiotic claim that 'there is no god.'

Behold!

Now, over a pint with Jon Worth - one of the Atheist Bus activists, he told me that they bought a campaign on London's bendy buses for £5,500. A quick calculation tells me that we need to find 275 people to donate £20. Lets allow for a few extra pints overheads and call it 300.

If only we could get 300 people to commit to donating £20, we could show the blasphemers a thing or two with a campaign of our own.

um, as a fully signed up atheist bus campainer, and committed pastafarian, I have to point out that we said there's "probably" no god - its very important in terms of spaghettification theorics that word in quotes is there. without it, I might have to agree, but with it, I assure you I also have to agree and will happily donate 1 kilo of vermicelli to your campaign.

But surely if there is only "probably" no god, it should be the Agnostic Bus Campaign?

Anyway, I notice that neither of you have signed the pledge yet?

Paulie,
1. I did give to the real atheist bus campaign
2. We Unicornians are considering a counter pledge appeal...

I'm still not sure how the Atheists got away with an Agnostic advertising campaign. Seems to break every rule of truth in advertising.

How much for a lapsed pastafarian?

Tom Freeman said...

It has already begun.

Paulie said...

Tom: Lo! Etc.

Quedula: Twice as much, heretic!

It was interesting that in the Britain, most of the responses to the atheist bus campaign from Christians were very benign. There were comments such as it is good to get people to think about God and then ads will help. I didn't see any angry response at all. If there had been some, then the publicity it would have generated would have been very helpful. I think that Christians in Britain in general are very used to having people express non-christian points of view. And there is a long tradition of free speech.

The atheist buses are probably most needed in areas where religion is stronger, such as Northern Ireland, bible belt USA, Sri Lanka (where the Hindu-Buddhist conflict has raged for decades) or in any Muslim state. Though with apostasy a crime punishable by death in Saudi Arabia and other countries, there would be very strong opposition in some parts.

My own request is that you orthodox pastafarians turn away from your corrupt ways and join us in The Reformed Pastafarian Church.
