If I am Created in God’s Image, Then He Probably Thinks This is Funny Too

The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster was founded during the Intelligent Design Debate of the Kansas School Board.  Their Open Letter to the Kansas School Board is nothing short of a work of art.  My personal favorite part is this:

Furthermore, it is disrespectful to teach our beliefs without wearing His chosen outfit, which of course is full pirate regalia. I cannot stress the importance of this enough, and unfortunately cannot describe in detail why this must be done as I fear this letter is already becoming too long. The concise explanation is that He becomes angry if we don’t.

If you need me to tell you that this is a spoof, then I fear for your mental health.  The point was to highlight just how inappropriate it is to introduce Intelligent Design into science classes as an “alternate theory”.  After all, there can be many alternate theories.  To open the doors to one religion’s alternate theory of how Man came to be, would be to open the doors to every religion’s alternate theory.
