Was the world created by god, evolution or pasta?

Published October 5th, 2006 by Bobby Henderson


Simon Singh reviews The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster by Bobby Henderson.

The popularity of Intelligent Design over the past decade has been profoundly depressing for anybody who cares about science and rational thought. Supporters claim that some aspects of nature are so complicated that they cannot be explained by evolution, and therefore they conclude the existence of an entity who must have designed living beings. Although the criticisms of evolution are generally flawed and exaggerated, Intelligent Design is being taken seriously by many educationalists.

    I now believed that men are created by supreme being.you can call him God.but from every other culture and language people have name for that supreme and invisible being.we are created by someone more superior than us.but some how in the image of that person called God.

    I think ID guys are just trying too hard to prove something that is obvious to any rational being… Darwin lived in an illusion that he found the secret of life, while he only named God’s will as Natural Selection and overblown the ability of the living (given by God) to perform minor adaptations as means of conforming to new environmental conditions. Evolution in the way Darwin described it is impossible. If it was possible, we’d be way smarter and healthier then ancient Greeks with no need for medicine. And just what did the camels do in the hot sand for thousands if not millions of years without shoes… They waited evolution to give them a pair of natural once?

    Great, I’m gonna spend the rest of my life waiting for evolution to make me a super-man! And what’s science anyway? A sort of American Idol where contestants spit their theories in front of oh my omnipotent judges with the accreditations a la ‘now gimme yours and i’ll give you mine’. I am sure God found our quest for ourselves tragic at first. But it just got plain ridiculous. Today’s scientific elite is nothing short of religious dogma of the middle age. Both are explaining this miracle before your eyes through some man-made scribblings. I seldom go to church, so I am not really religious. But I am what people would call a believer. I myself would call me a human aware of his Creator.

    May God bless you all! Good thing everybody discovers the truth at the end of their path…

    Engrish. I LOVE Engrish.

    Seriously, how in the name of carbohydrate does anyone follow any of the links these bots post? (Even though strictly there was no link in this case)

    If one were paranoid, one could wonder if our beloved site had been targeted by those who object to our way of life. Much like the time I put a mate’s email into every “word of the day”, “inspirational quote of the day”, “fact of the day” etc. I could find. It got a little out of hand…

    The worst I’ve heard of was a bloke in the US who told his local army recruiters about a “friend” of his who was interested in a career change. The friend was a professor in his 50’s. Evidently the recruiters were incredibly persistent. It seems that all they cared about was numbers and still harassed him even when he pointed out he walks with a cane. Fun for all involved!
