Kansas Leglislators strikes another blow!!!

Postby Peg-Leg the Zealus on Thu Nov 30, 2006 4:25 pm

The un-educated & un-enlightened masses in Kansas have spoken again! That particular state's elected representatives have now outlawed the practice of evolution within the state's borders. Check it out for yourself:

http://www.theonion.com/content/node/55807[/url]

How can we, the Pastafarian community, contain this new threat from the most foul state in the Union? Furthermore, how can we stop this foul practice from spilling over to other states or countries? I suggest we find as many pirates as we can who are willing to go on a pillaging mission to Kansas, via river or '76 Cadillac (a.k.a - "Road Yacht"), and set siege to the state capital. Other ideas anyone?


P.S.- the story is fake, its The Onion, duh! BUT, the story IS plausible, unfortunately.

Aint the Onion grand!

To enforce the law, Kansas state police will be trained to investigate and apprehend organisms who exhibit suspected signs of evolutionary behavior, such as natural selection or speciation. Plans are underway to track and monitor DNA strands in every Kansan life form for even the slightest change in allele frequencies.


Ha, that'll learn all those danged organisms to stop spitting in jesus's face!

"From now on, the streets, forests, plains, and rivers of Kansas will be safe from the godless practice of evolution, and species will be able to procreate without deviating from God's intended design," said Bob Bethell, a member of the state House of Representatives. "This is about protecting the integrity of all creation."


Just a small reminder to whomever said that, there is a small clause in the CONSTITUTION that has the slight intention of creating a separation of church and state. I don't know, maybe I'm crazy, but I kind of had the small idea that making a law to ban godless natural occurances kind of had the tiny similarity to a conjuction of church and state. I don't know, maybe these are the ramblings of an old man of 14, but that's what I always thought.
During the Space Race, American astronauts were faced with the problem that ink from their pens would not stay on the pentip.
After spending millions of dollars and a few years in research, they came up with the ballpoint pen. This solved the problem.

The Soviets, faced with the same problem, used a pencil.

What in FSM's name are you rambling about? Are you inferring that a fake news piece is violating the separation of church and state? Maybe give it another readthrough.

Oh, I didn't read the all of the first post. But still, the fact that I believed it really says something. You can ask Duke, he knows me IRL.

Your association with Duke warrants forgiveness! But as pennance I think it is only fair that you be forced to read no-less than 10 back issues of the onion!

I only wish that someone would have exposed me to the satirical brilliance of the Onion when I was at such a tender age as thee!

Go forth and laugh with great glee!

Yes...I must talk to Duke about his negligence of telling me of this "Onion"...

No it don't! Remind me to give this guy a hearty whupping next time I see him! :wink:

But I agree with the sentence: Read the Onion. Ya hear? :)

I'd like to write for the Onion someday (I say that sort of thing a lot, don't I?). Then ya'll would really have to read it! :fsm_rock:

Perhaps we should legislate an article about the FSM from them. Something titled "Flying Spaghetti Monster Comes to Earth", you know.

We could add "Kansas School Board kills themselves, then realize that that is against God's will in FSM heaven."

Naw, they don't deserve to die, although I do think that said legislators should get real jobs.

And, remember, the school board that put "Intelligent Design" into the classrooms have since been replaced by more sensible candidates in the last elections, but I'm not sure if they still teach ID in the public schools in Kansas.

Well, that's OK, though I still can't believe that if they could vote it in once, then one election will get rid of it.
