The Flying Spaghetti Monster created the universe


I very much enjoyed reading the column on Nov. 23, “The Bible v. Darwin, 2005,” and would like to offer an alternate theory of intelligent design.

Once upon a time, a very powerful being known as The Flying Spaghetti Monster created the universe (and everything else).

He created everything only to manipulate our scientific findings with his noodly appendage as an exercise in faith.

There are around 10 million of us believers (The Pastafari) but have chosen to remain hidden away from the public, until now.

The debate to introduce intelligent design into the public school systems has forced us to come forward, united and strong (much like the X-Men).

Feel free to research The Flying Spaghetti Monster’s teachings on

I have already written to Chris Buttars with this information, as well as a plan for repentance, but I’m sure he could use more encouragement.

May you be touched by his noodly appendage.
