    “Darwin’s THEORY of evolution isn’t science.”

    WRONG! You show absolutely no understanding of the word ‘theory,’ which doesn’t surprise me at all. Evolution forms the entire base of biology as we understand it, and evolution has countless ‘facts’ to back up the theory, so yes, evolution is considered very sound science. Although I am certain you are also someone who rejects the ‘theory’ of gravity. Go away idiot and read some actual science books on the subject (free of religious dogma) before you spout of any more of your nonsense.

    “theory” is a scientific term, the corresponding laymans term is “fact”

    @ – Alyssa #8,
    This is nothing new; remember that Rosalyn Franklin, who did all of the work, got completely silenced by Watson and Crick. Check-out: http://www.wpr.org/book/090208b.cfm . Recall also that the folks who were being talked about on Maddow’s show are well described here: http://home.cc.umanitoba.ca/~altemey/

    @ – Michael T #12,
    In a show like RM’s, the whole theology of the loose canon cannot all be explained, but it’s all in The Gospel of the FSM. Also remember that the only orthodox dogma to which all Pastafarians adhere is the absolute prohibition of religion in the public schools science curriculum. Beyond that, Pastafarian beliefs are about as unified as a herd of cats.

    As regards the reference to our religion as “satire,” the FSM does not care if people believe in Him or not, so it is of little consequence if we are mischaracterized in Rachel’s report. It is more important that we have received the attention. There will be so many more people who will be touched by His Noodly Appendage.

    The publicity is always great, and I liked the content of her speech, and the explanation. I don’t appreciate her nearly laughing at mention of us.

    @Post 15, Half Nelson

    The fossil record and genetics say quite the opposite.

    Evolution IS science. Are you gonna try and claim ID is?
