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.

    Beastly. That flickr site seems ok!
    I haven’t uploaded anything yet but have joined it. You need a yahoo id though. Still it’s free (or $25 per year if you use a lot of space)

    Hey, that thing is pretty cool. It downloaded everything really fast.

    Good! I’m going to upload some of my pics there soon. I’ll send you an invite. Be warned though, they aren’t too interesting. Unless you like Cairn Terriers, landscapes, sunsets, arty farty stuff, plants, insects and spiders etc.

    Nice, I like coastal scenes. I saw a cloud formation that looked like the FSM a few days ago. Typical luck, I didn’t have my camera ready :(

    Well, better than a cloud formation, I saw the image of the FSM in a piece of toast! I almost fainted. Of course, that was from hunger which was substantially diminished when I spread the toast with butter and jam and ate it. *Urp*

    I saw FSM in my tea today.
