Can I get a RAMEN from the congregation?!

Behold the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster (FSM), today's fastest growing carbohydrate-based religion. According to church founder Bobby Henderson, the universe and all life within it were created by a mystical and divine being: the Flying Spaghetti Monster. What drives the FSM's devout followers, a.k.a. Pastafarians? Some say it's the assuring touch from the FSM's noodly appendage. Then there are those who love the worship service, which is conducted in pirate talk and attended by congregants in dashing buccaneer garb. Still others are drawn to the Church's flimsy moral standards, religious holidays every Friday, or the fact that Pastafarian heaven is way cooler: Does your heaven have a Stripper Factory and a Beer Volcano? Intelligent Design has finally met its match — and it has nothing to do with apes or the Olive Garden of Eden.

Within these pages, Bobby Henderson outlines the true facts — dispelling such malicious myths as evolution (only a theory), science (only a lot of theories), and whether we're really descended from apes (fact: Humans share 95 percent of their DNA with chimpanzees, but they share 99.9 percent with pirates!)

See what impressively credentialed top scientists have to say:

"If Intelligent Design is taught in schools, equal time should be given to the FSM theory and the non-FSM theory." Professor Douglas Shaw, Ph.D.

"Do not be hypocritical. Allow equal time for other alternative 'theories' like FSMism, which is by far the tastier choice." J. Simon, Ph.D.

"In my scientific opinion, when comparing the two theories, FSM theory seems to be more valid than classic ID theory." Afshin Beheshti, Ph.D.

Political Support:

"I think that part of education is to expose people to different schools of thought. You're asking me whether or not people ought to be exposed to different ideas, the answer is yes." George W. Bush, President of the United States of America

"All points of view should be available to students studying the origins of mankind." Senator John McCain

Bobby Henderson really illustrated his point in this book. Ive read it several times and finalized my conversion. From the creation to the tower of Scrapple, he gives a very detailed explanation. Empirical evidence within installs faith in even the most skeptical (and crazy).

Perhaps the best book $14 can buy, though it is a little short.

In this book, we learn that midgets are one of the Flying Spaghetti Monster's chosen people, Pirates created Halloween, and the tailbone is a vestigial horn that humans once had on their butts. By far the most enlightening book I have ever read.
