CAN I GET A "RAMEN" FROM THE CONGREGATION?! Behold the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster (FSM), todays fastest growing carbohydrate-based religion. According to church founder Bobby Henderson, the universe and all life within it were created by a mystical and divine being the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
What drives the FSMs devout followers, a. k. a. Pastafarians? Some say its the assuring touch from the FSMs "noodly appendage." Then there are those who love the worship service, which is conducted in pirate talk and attended by congregants in dashing buccaneer garb.
Still others are drawn to the Churchs flimsy moral standards, religious holidays every Friday, or the fact that Pastafarian heaven is way cooler Does your heaven have a Stripper Factory and a Beer Volcano? Intelligent Design has finally met its matchand it has nothing to do with apes or the Olive Garden of Eden. Within these pages, Bobby Henderson outlines the true facts dispelling such malicious myths as evolution ("only a theory"), science ("only a lot of theories"), and whether were really descended from apes (fact Humans share 95 percent of their DNA with chimpanzees, but they share 99.
9 percent with pirates!) See what impressively credentialed top scientists have to say _25E2_2580_259CIf Intelligent Design is taught in schools, equal time should be given to the FSM theory and the non-FSM theory. _25E2_2580_259D Professor Douglas Shaw, Ph. D.

Simon, Ph. D. _25E2_2580_259CIn my scientific opinion, when comparing the two theories, FSM theory seems to be more valid than classic ID theory.
