Flying Spaghetti Monster

A student of mine sent me a link to the Wikipedia page for the Flying Spaghetti Monster, a parody of Intelligent Design that has taken on a life of its own: the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. The founder, Bobby Henderson, gets a lot of hate mail.

As for me, I am still a Militant Darwinist, but I am sympathetic to the Pastafarians, as the followers of the Flying Spaghetti Monsters call themselves.

Flying Spaghetti Monster, I love it! -- in the voice of Rob Lowe in "Wayne's World" saying "gelatinous cube eats medieval village -- brilliant!"

oh but you must read the Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. You'll be an instant convert. Who could not resist a religion whose main festival is "speak like a pirate day"?
