In praise of an alternate creation theory

Published January 7th, 2007 by Bobby Henderson


Leslie Scrivener has written an excellent article, In praise of an alternate creation theory, in the Toronto Star.

From the department of one scientific theory is as good as another, comes the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

The theory goes like this: the Earth and all living things were created by a Supreme Being, the Flying Spaghetti Monster, and though there are no witnesses to creation, there are written accounts of it.

In time, men and women heard of the spaghetti monster and came to worship him. And as the word spread, a gospel was written and churches were established in his name.

And artists, inspired by his word, drew his image – a tangled mass of pasta, with two generous meatballs, and googly eyes protruding from stalks.

Since the Flying Spaghetti Monster was revealed in 2005, millions have seen his image or read about him and his teachings, on the Internet site www.venganza.org and also in a book published last year, The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

    “Mostly, FSM seems to have the greatest impact among anti-creationist activists, who need the chance to blow off steam, says Branch. “Keeping track of creationist activity and combating it is a tiring and often thankless chore and enjoying light hearted fun at the opposition’s expense is probably healthy.”
