It wouldn't surprise me if other people thought the same way.

Yeah..... I never really understood the point of this thread either... in fact when I joined up 5 months ago I wrote “I don't quite see why I'm supposed to make my first post here… it seems a rather unnecessary Germanic regulation” and you were the first person to reply to me with a very cordial and courteous welcome! But no-one ever explained to me what this thread was about… I guess it’s just a way of getting to know new members and saying hello to them and answering any silly questions they may have ‘cos they don’t know what Pastafarianism is... altho’ many of us have rather different opinions on that topic (see All Things FSM What do we stand for? and the latest comments on All Things FSM A Question from a Christian) and it's just as well, 'cos a range of different opinions is the sign of a healthy demo-crassy! I guess everyone has their own idea of what this thread is all about too..... but no-one as yet ('cept me!) seems to have given you any coherent reply to the question inherent-implied in your post!
Perhaps it's just what Catholics call "mistero della fede" (mystery of the faith!)

But I have a problem. I am the son of two very christian parents, who don't know that I am a Pastafarian. I was wondering if anyone had any advise on how to break the news to them...I don't want them to freak out.
Get them drunk, get them happy. Then do it. And be tactful. Don't yell, stay calm at all times. You'll undoubtedly lose some respect, but at least they'll know and you'll be happy.

Or ye kin whip out yer cutlass an' gut the maggoty blaggards!

So I'm not really a new convert, but I figured it's been long enough that I should post my first here.

Why aren't posts in the "New Convert Thread" considered posts ?

t could be that our faithlessness is a cowering cowardice born of our very smallness, a massive failure of imagination. If we were to judge nature by common sense or likelihood, we wouldn't believe the world existed.

Of course they are considered to be posts...
That sounds to me like a contradiction in terms.... you call them "posts" and then ask why aren't they "considered posts"...
that's like saying "Why aren't fish fish?" or "Why isn't a house a house?"... isn't it?

Hey peeps!
Weeeeeeeee!

I guess you've been getting a lot of time in with your shiny new vagina. (But I guess it's not so new or shiny anymore)

Welcome back! And welcome, everyone else!

EarthRise!

Man welcome back! It's been forever, and you've missed SOO much, we'll try to catch you up.

To begin with, Ken Worley is now the head Admin. Zankou is due to be a father in about 3 months. RRR is writing the official sequal to the Gospel of FSM. BlackBart has left us to become a Scientologist. Turns out WoE is actually a woman. And Capellini and I are going to be married in the fall.

Did I leave anything out guys?
I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.

I did that one already, but I did it better. Nice try, though.

You forgot to mention that I have been unanimously elected Supreme Ruler of the Universe.

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."
