Touched by his Noodly Appendage

Author: Helen


Most of you know that many states in the US are demanding an “equal time” law between teaching evolution, and intelligent design, in schools. (An excellent development that may reach our shores via Hillsong Church, Assemblies of God or whoever.)

Kansas citizen Bobby Harrison decided to do something about it. Here’s his letter to the Kansas School Board (via Alas, a Blog).

I am writing you with much concern after having read of your hearing to decide whether the alternative theory of Intelligent Design should be taught along with the theory of Evolution. I think we can all agree that it is important for students to hear multiple viewpoints so they can choose for themselves the theory that makes the most sense to them. I am concerned, however, that students will only hear one theory of Intelligent Design.

Let us remember that there are multiple theories of Intelligent Design. I and many others around the world are of the strong belief that the universe was created by a Flying Spaghetti Monster. It was He who created all that we see and all that we feel. We feel strongly that the overwhelming scientific evidence pointing towards evolutionary processes is nothing but a coincidence, put in place by Him.

It is for this reason that I’m writing you today, to formally request that this alternative theory be taught in your schools, along with the other two theories. In fact, I will go so far as to say, if you do not agree to do this, we will be forced to proceed with legal action.

Now read on

Bobby, so far, has had two responses from the School board.
