[*] The Flying Spaghetti Monster

The Monday political commentary has set off a rash of internet searches to determine the meaning of the "Flying Spaghetti Monster" noted in one of the photos, and it turns out it has its own church (of sorts). It also has a FAQ, which is something we Christian ought to be jealous of -- whoever you are and whatever denomination or religious splinter group you fall into, Christianity doesn't have a decent FAQ even though the short list (like, the top 25) of Frequently Asked Questions is easily discerned even in the first 15 minutes of entering into the conversation.

There are a lot of really enjoyable parts of FSM's FAQ, but my avorite is this:
4. Are you an atheist/heathen/etc.?

I don't have a problem with religion. What I have a problem with is religion posing as science. Teach creationism in school, fine, but DON'T teach it in a science classroom. Science = the study of repeatable, observable, natural phenomena. Accepting a supernatural explanation is a cop-out. It's faith, NOT science.

Religious nuts: please stop emailing me about that. No I can't "repeat" evolution for you, so stop asking. But if you doubt the science that allows us to guess the age of the earth, then please stop using your computer, cell phones, and TV. The same methods of science that brought you those are the same methods we use for these evil evolution theories. Science is NOT truth, it's the search for truth, fact.

It's a good thing all religions -- even satirical religions -- wind up at the same place, otherwise there'd be a whole lot more people rejecting religion for atheism.
