Found this on the train: Independent, 9th October, page 30, Letters to the Editor.
    Sir: I agree that creationism should be discussed alongside the theory of evolution (letters, 8 October). It is important for students to hear multiple views [...] and the reams of scientific results proving the existence of evolution are a result of the Flying Spaghetti Monster changing the evidence with His Noodly Appendages.
    [...]
    Perhaps, one day, we can look forward to the time when all three theories are given equal emphasis in our science classrooms: one third of the time for creationism, one third devoted to Flying Spaghetti Monsterism, and one third for the teaching of logical conjecture based on overwhelming observable evidence.
