The Flying Spaghetti Monster

This is going to get complicated, so remember that the link is here.

Dr. Kent Hovind is so sure that Intelligent Design (the 'science' that disputes the theory of evolution, claims that God designed just about everything, and is now being taught in the Kansas Public Schools and elsewhere) is true, that he's offered $250,000 for anyone who can produce empirical evidence that the theory of evolution is true.

Enter an open letter to the Kansas School Board, that asks why the theory of creation according to the Flying Spaghetti Monster is not taught in schools. You know, right, The Flying Spaghetti Monster, or, his Pasta Holiness.

And now, enter Boing Boing, which is also offering a $250,000 award to anyone who can produce empirical evidence that Jesus is not the son of The Flying Spaghetti Monster.

No joke.

There is also a Wikipedia entry about "Pastafarians," who are followers of the Big FSM.
