Flying Spaghetti Monster Created World

I haven't had much time for this blog lately, but here's a report the FSM in the news. This report appeared ona television news report WXII12 in Roseberg, Oregon:

"A recent Oregon State University graduate has created a Web site which makes fun of the intelligent design movement.

The Web site has drawn more than 30 million hits in recent months. It features a tongue-and-cheek theory of how the world was created. It wasn't God -- but rather, a Flying Spaghetti Monster.

Bob Henderson is the 25-year-old creator of the Web site. He and his legion of 'Pastafarian' followers say they believe the universe was created by a giant Flying Spaghetti Monster -- a clump of tangled spaghetti with two eyes and 'noodly appendages.'

The Web site shows the monster seated at the table of the Last Supper.

Pastafarians say if alternatives to evolution, such as intelligent design, must be taught in schools, then the Spaghetti Monster theory, which is just as well thought out, deserves equal time."
