All hail the Flying Sphagetti Monster ! RAmen !

The religion, Flying Sphagetti Monsterism, was created by Bobby Henderson, a graduate of Oregon State University with a degree in physics, in opposition to the decision by the Kansas State Board of Education to allow intelligent design to be taught in science classes alongside evolution.

Check out some of the beliefs of this "religion"...especially the second one:
  • The Universe was created by an invisible and undetectable Flying Spaghetti Monster. All evidence pointing towards evolution was intentionally planted by this being.
  • Global warming, earthquakes, hurricanes, and other natural disasters are a direct consequence of the decline in numbers of pirates since the 1800s. A graph showing the inverse correlation between the pirates and global temperatures was also provided. This was presumably intended to highlight the logical fallacy of correlation implying causation.
  • Bobby Henderson is the "prophet" of this religion.
Prayers end with the word "RAmen" rather than Amen !

A great way to make a point...apparently this "Religion" has caught on a lot on the net...
