Dembski can't read

In what he seems to think is a major attack on the anti-ID parody sweeping the Internet, he attacks the "Intelligent Spaghetti Monster." Except anyone who reads anything on the topic knows it's the "Flying Spaghetti Monster." That's why supporters refer to the FSM, or are themselves FSMists. It's pretty bad when you get the name of the parody you're mocking wrong. It suggests you don't quite know what you're talking about. Which probably makes sense, since he doesn't link to either major site discussing the topic.

He then asks these questions:

Questions: Does the ISM consist of durum semolina or some other grain? Also, was that grain as well as its processing into spaghetti designed? Since in all our experience spaghetti is designed, who or what designed the ISM?
Shit, man, I don't know. Can you answer those questions about your "designer"? Because it sounds like there's a controversy here. I think we should expose our children to this controversy, don't you?
