Is our children...

Kansas City Star | 08/15/2005 | Life created by … ‘His Holy Noodleness’?:
According to Bobby Henderson, Kansas school children need to learn about the world’s true intelligent designer: the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

Henderson, 24, is a recent physics graduate who lives in Corvallis, Ore. He created the Flying Spaghetti Monster as a way to parody the intelligent design movement. He sent a letter to Kansas Board of Education members demanding that his “faith” in “His Holy Noodleness” be incorporated in Kansas’ new science education standards.

The board is set to vote this fall on new science standards that call for a more critical look at evolution.

Two board members who oppose the new standards, Sue Gamble of Shawnee and Janet Waugh of Kansas City, Kan., replied. Both thanked Henderson for the humor.
The Flying Spaghetti Monster is not a joke! There are serious, serious holy wars under way between the FSMists and the SPAMationists. All sides must be taught!

Is it pirates or protein consumption that is causing global warming? We must know! Rarely is the question asked, "Is our children learning about spaghetti monsters?"
