Intelligent Design Or Flying Spaghetti Monster?
Yes, this is where things lead when you try to mix religion and science.
From the Floridian:
If President Bush and Kansas public schools believe intelligent design should be taught alongside evolution in classrooms, Bobby Henderson says it is only fair to include his deity du jour.
Flying Spaghetti Monster.
Henderson, a 25-year-old with a physics degree from Oregon State University, saw a vision of a tangle of spaghetti noodles with two eyestalks and an affinity for worshipers wearing pirate garb. He believes his god is as valid as the one alluded to in intelligent design, a theory which contends some features of the natural world are just too special to be due to evolutionary roulette.
The website that details the Flying Spaghetti Monster is pretty damn hilarious. Sure, it can be seen as offensive, but I believe that if you’re secure in your faith, I’m sure you’ll see the humor.
It also features a graphic that shows as the number of pirates declined, the average tempature of the earth went up?
Coincidence? You decide.
