The FSM Book
Review from Scientific American
An elaborate spoof on Intelligent Design, The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster is neither too elaborate nor too spoofy to succeed in nailing the fallacies of ID. It’s even wackier than Jonathan Swift’s suggestion that the Irish eat their children as a way to keep them from being a burden, and it may offend just as many people, but Henderson, described elsewhere as a 25-year-old “out-of-work physics major,” puts satire to the same serious use that Swift did. Oh, yes, it is very funny.
The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster was nominated for the 2006 Quill Awards in the Humor category! We didn’t win, unfortunately (religious discrimination, maybe), but it is an honor just to have been nominated, etc.Â Thanks very much to everyone who voted.
