Pastafarians in the News in Detroit

Waiting for a leader (Metro Times Detroit):
"Bobby Henderson deserves the thanks of every thinking person in this country. When the idiots on the Kansas Board of Education voted to give "intelligent design" equal time with evolution in class, he formally requested that "Flying Spaghetti Monsterism (FSM)" be given equal time as well. According to his "Pastafarian" dogma, of which he is the prophet, global warming and hurricanes are caused by the decline in the numbers of pirates since the 1800s, and salvation can come only to those who are touched by "His Noodly Appendage."

Worship and learn at

Dozens of scientists have written to say that FSM makes far more sense than Intelligent Design.

George W. Bush, by the way, says he thinks students should be exposed to "all theories," presumably including marinara.

When all else fails, parody is sometimes the perfect antidote."
