Having just come from Kansas, where Evolution and Intelligent Design are duking it out over meme space in the public schools there, I couldn’t help loving this alternative theory. It seems as scientific as ID yet more imaginatively compelling — the Flying Spaghetti Monster: “He who created all that we see and all that we feel.”
Count me in with the FSM crowd. If we’re going to open up Science class to alternatives to evolution, let’s really open it up. And if overwhelming observable scientific evidence is no longer the sole criteria for what’s taught as science, then the field of alternatives should get very crowded indeed.
My questions: Who created the Flying Spaghetti Monster? What kind of sauce? Does this make Italians, not Jews, God’s chosen people?
