The Florida State School Board is holding public hearings to talk about changes to science standards.
New standards were written by scientists and educators, but some evangelical Christians want Creationism and Intelligent Design taught as well.
Clearly, this is an issue that concerns us. Are there any Pastafarians in Florida willing to give us a first-hand report?
They’ve held a meeting in Jacksonville already. There’s a meeting in Fort Lauderdale next week.
You can read the article from First Coast News, though it does not say much.

The meeting in Ft. Lauderdale is scheduled for:
JANUARY 8TH from 5:30-7:30pm at Everglades High School
Can anyone make it? A prize to anyone who shows up in pirate regalia and asks – respectfully – if the new standards will be inclusive of the beliefs of Pastafarians.
