FSM advocate [Oct. 9th, 2007|04:28 pm]
Douglas Spencer
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.

I should think so too. About time somebody came up with a sensible, balanced approach. Hear, hear!

Re: Missing the Boat

It's a theory, perhaps not a very scientific one.

Good to see the FSM beginning to take it's rightful place alongside creationism. :-)

Re: Missing the Boat

"CREATIONALISM"

You seem to have added some extra letters to that word. Take out the "AL", then the "A" and the "O". There you go; now you have a word that accurately descibes the belief that a magic space pixie created the world in 6 days around 6,000 years ago.
