I believe in the Flying Spaghetti Monster
Here's the best idea yet for fighting the religious fruitcakes who want to teach creationism in school science classes.
Parents in Kansas are combating the pressure for 'Intelligent Design' with this open letter to the Kansas School Board. They are demanding that their belief in the Flying Spaghetti Monster is given equal recognition.
They have some strong arguments.
You may be interested to know that global warming, earthquakes, hurricanes, and other natural disasters are a direct effect of the shrinking numbers of Pirates since the 1800s. For your interest, I have included a graph of the approximate number of pirates versus the average global temperature over the last 200 years. As you can see, there is a statistically significant inverse relationship between pirates and global temperature.Who can resist their demands for a more balanced teaching of science?
I think we can all look forward to the time when these three theories are given equal time in our science classrooms across the country, and eventually the world; One third time for Intelligent Design, one third time for Flying Spaghetti Monsterism, and one third time for logical conjecture based on overwhelming observable evidence.Well, what's wrong? Liberals believe in 'choice', don't they?
Meanwhile, read this latest news report from Kansas.
Pray you get eaten first.
