Fringe? (flash fiction)




“So what do you do for a living?”

“I’m a particle physicist. I work at CERN with particle accelerators like the Large Hadron Collider.”

“Wow that’s really fringe stuff.”

“I don’t think so. We’re trying to understand what matter is made up of and how the Universe began. Important things for our knowledge of physics.”

“But we already know how that all started!”

“We do?”

“Yes of course! The Flying Spaghetti Monster created the Universe as we know it in his noodlely magnificence.”

“I’m not really a believer in things like that.”

“That’s okay. His Noodleness still loves you.”

      1. Really? That’s wild. Here’s to hoping people understand the true meaning of FSM, because as a religious person, I think skepticism (from outside or within) can help us all reflect a bit more genuinely in the long run.
