Intelligent Design: Et tu McCain?

The Flying Spaghetti Monster

John McCain has joined other anti-science Repugs in calling for the teaching of Intelligent Design in schools.

"On Tuesday, though, he sided with the president on two issues that have made headlines recently: teaching intelligent design in schools and Cindy Sheehan, the grieving mother who has come to personify the anti-war movement.

McCain told the Star that, like Bush, he believes 'all points of view' should be available to students studying the origins of mankind.

The theory of intelligent design says life is too complex to have developed through evolution, and that a higher power must have had a hand in guiding it. "
Although skeptical at first, I now agree with McCain and Bush that Intelligent Design should be taught. I've become a Pastafarian and I believe that the Flying Spaghetti Monster is our creator and all children should be taught this in school.
