SPAGETTI DO-IT-YOURSELF RELIGIONS

f
Picture from Earl Bockenfeld

By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Like myself, readers of this blog like to plumb the mysteries of space and science. Earl has a breaking news story (ahem):from his blog
This picture shows the nebula IC 8675, which as you can see is filled with Noodly structures! Not only does this image scientifically PROVE the existence of the FSM, I believe it shows His home in space." snip

The board for Beebe School District in Arkansas voted on 12 July to remove from textbooks stickers promoting an "intelligent designer" over evolution. Feedback wonders if they were influenced by an open letter to the State Board of Education in neighbouring Kansas circulated by Bobby Henderson, a "concerned citizen".


"Let us remember that there are multiple theories of intelligent design," is its crux. "I and many others around the world are of the strong belief that the universe was created by a Flying Spaghetti Monster," Henderson affirms. "It was He who created all that we see and all that we feel. We feel strongly that the overwhelming scientific evidence pointing towards evolutionary processes is nothing but a coincidence, put in place by Him."


He writes "to formally request that this alternative theory be taught in your schools, along with the other two theories [creationism and evolution]." The full text is at Venganza.org and includes the argument that global warming correlates with the diminishing number of pirates. There is also a discussion forum and letters of endorsements from academics and leading scientists. Below is a small sample.
The Venganza url is a funny sight (site).

It is quite possible that we really could do a class action suit concerning Intelligent (sic) Design. After all, the real debate ceases to be evolution and immediately becomes "what is the Entity that created humans out of mud or spagetti or whatever junk was lying around the Creator's messy bedroom?" That seems to me to be a very pressing question and no teacher's manual should be without the long list of probable suspects and what things they used when making that disasterous creature, the ultimate Frankensteinian monster, humans.
