\"In the beginning, there was Flying Spaghetti Monster\"
 
I don't usually post in this forum, but I got a kick out of this article published today in the St. Pete Times (Tampa) regarding the issue of intelligent design being taught alongside evolution in classrooms.

Fun's fun, but this FSM worship has gotten way out of hand.

Time we got back to basics:

Apparently this story was even on Austrian TV.

What the article, and many other opponents of ID fail to see is that design is aying that there may be a designer. Not who or what, just the possibility that life may have been designed.

You're right, and he is saying the Spaghetti monster is a designer so it isn't really an alternative theory.

An alternative to ID and equally credible, is that we weren't designed, the universe was layed from the rear end of the great chicken overlord.

Of course the FSM could be a designer. The who or what can be debated forever, but that's not the point here.

Based on Pascal's wager, I plan to go and buy a full wardrobe of Pirate clothes ASAP.

the point is that science doesn't teach something just because its possible. science teaches whatever model produces the best predictions. if ID ever outmodels evolution and/or produces even slightly competetive predictions, then, the model would be more than welcome in the science room.
