i don’t understand

Published August 9th, 2006 by Bobby Henderson

Bobby,
    I don’t understand.  I have recently read your article to the KC school board.  You seem to be arguing that the FSM created the earth.  I believe the God of the Bible created the earth.  Your argument states that schools should teach evolution, intelligent design, and FSM creation.   

Both the Christian belief and yours state that something intellegent created the universe (and it didn’t just happen by accident).  Is the spaghetti monster not intelligent?  Is that the argument for teaching both.

The teaching of Intelligent Design does not promote my God any more than yours or anybody elses for that matter.  It shouldn’t even promote a god as the creator.  All Intelliegent Design promotes is another theory about the beginning of the universe.  That as complex as this universe is that it could have been (in theory) created.

Your letter gives the impression that you want your religion to be taught.  I beleive that is wrong.  We may have different beliefs about how the universe came into existence but we both believe in Intelligent Design.   

Thank you for your time,
    -GM

    The idea that Intelligent Design does not promote any God at all is rediculous. Of course it does. Intelligent Design by definition is a hypothesis that proposes something or someone designed all life on Earth. This something or someone is by definition a God.

    This warrants a “no duh”

    1) Please see my earlier post.

    2) Many religions have ‘revealed’ scripture: this does not means that the New Testament is ‘not particularly a Christian’ work. The claim that philosophy of design in other religious traditions absolves ID of an evangelical Christian nature is a non-sequitur.

    THIS movement, at THIS PARTICULAR TIME, as funded by a Young-Earth Creationist who favors scrapping the Bill of Rights and imposing Mosaic law, and as promoted by fundamentalist evangelical Christians, is ‘particularly a Christian’ work.

    Just sayin’. :-P

    I guess all these Christians still don’t get it. The point is that religion should not be taught in science classes. Why?

    1) religion=BELIEFS

    2) science=FACTS

    So maybye, just maybye, there is a god. But that would still not be a fact, because there is no certainty about it. Therefore everything in religeon is belief, and everything in science is fact.

    Teaching intelligent design does not promote god? Wait you actually believe this!

    Two words: Discovery institute.

    haha. did you really totally miss the point? it’s a joke. it’s making a statement about why it’s stupid to teach things other than evolution in schools. smack your forehead and say you understand. honestly. by all means…don’t take it seriously. no one ACTUALLY believes spaghetti created the world. it’s the principle of the thing. please try to recognise these types of sarcastic points in the future. uffdah.

    WHAT?! Damn you for a fool, sir! There shall be no Volcanoes of Beer for you in OUR noodly Heaven! Denying the Almighty Pasta Lord will get you whacked with a wet noodle for all eternity in the fiery abyss of Christian Heaven, sir! Repent and accept His meatballiness into your heart so ye might be saved. Ramen.

    An intesting contruct from a comic book… Hellblazer (with John Constantine as the main character) goes as follows.

    Religions are based on faith. Faith is belief without proof. (There is a difference the believing and knowing.) Therefore knowlege excludes faith and cancels out religion.

    Just another way of looking at it.

    I like the FSM concept. And I believe in God.

    “Bobby,

    This poor clumpball thinks the FSM is a serious, threatening, competing religion. He takes it all seriously! Doesn’t realize it’s a spoof.

    Taking jokes seriously seems to be a common feature among the fastidiously religious. Maybe that’s why they’re so obsessed by sadistic myths like hell and devils. Their senses of humor left them long ago.
