Bobby Henderson’s book, The Gospels of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster particularly ridicules attempts to have Intelligent Design taught as an alternative theory to Evolution by Natural Selection in American schools.
Bobby Henderson proposes there are many other viable theories of Intelligent Design which are just as worthy of being taught.
With the world riven by religious dogma and conflict, Bobby uses FSMism to highlight the absolute insanity of them all.
At times I felt that some of the ideas were too silly and that the parody could have been be more effective if less absurd, but on reflection could it be Christianity was started like the Flying Spaghetti Monster to mock another religion but everyone just slowly started to take it seriously?
Come to think of it, is the Mormon Church any less silly than FSMism? Founder, Joseph Smith, allegedly used a stone to help translate the word of God. Apparently he had to view its emanations in his hat!
“When one person suffers from a delusion, it is called insanity. When many people suffer from a delusion, it is called religion.” And if creationists could be reasoned with there would be no creationists.
