On the origin of (pasta) species

Thanks to reader Nils for pointing out important work by researcher Thomas Schneider, Ph.D., on the Origin of Noodleous doubleous:
Penne Rigate will spontaneously insert itself into Rigatoni (order pasta) under liquid to gas transition conditions of H2O to create the previously unobserved species Noodleous doubleous. The estimated probability of this spontaneous generation event is too low to be explained by thermodynamics and therefore apparently represents intelligent design.
At last, the missing link between the tubular pastas and the wheel pastas.

This is clearly a result of the hybridization of Rigate and Rigatoni with subsequent bindings. The subsequent connections do not require any special explanation, but the initial hybridization requires not only intelligent design, but intelligent pushers. As we all know, the conditions under which this hybrid – "Noodleous doubleous" – formed are highly entropic. Imagine that a Boeing 747 assembled itself when you tossed it into a pot of boiling water. It's clearly impossible, and intelligent processes must be at work.

How could one noodle appear inside a second? Either it passed through the solid outer wall, or some force pushed it through the narrow opening. Those of us with experience in such things know it requires a fair bit of dexterity and intelligence to achieve such a pairing.

At last, scientific proof of supernatural intelligent pushers. The probability that these pushers were pushing down is very low, so the Newtonist fools have no explanation. We in the Intelligent Falling movement know better.

Now we wait for the massive grant from the Discovery Institute to roll in.
