The Flying Spaghetti Monster. That’s the best they can come up with.
Some idiot writes a satirical open letter to the Kansas School Board and atheists fall at the guy’s feet in hypocritical [and undeserved] worship. Why? Because the fellow states that we ought to teach [concerning origins] Intelligent Design, evolution and his unfounded, newly created Flying Spaghetti Monster story.
And it’s the best they can come up with.
This is better tha Dawkins oh-so-clever “Well, we’re here, aren’t we?” excuse.
I’d like to thank all fans of Pastafarianism for two things:
 The original letter makes a satirical point via a graph that correlation does not necessarily imply causality. [The diminishing number of pirates versus the increasing number of natural disasters does not imply that a decrease in piracy is CAUSING an increase in disasters.] Creationists have been saying this all along. Homology does not imply ancestry. Thank you for conceding this point with all of your noodly appendages.
 This tack proves once again that the only way atheists can combat Creationism, ID or any theistic theory of origins is by creating straw men, even Flying Spaghetti Straw Men. They can never address the real thing. They have to paint theistic theories as devoid of fact and science precisely because they would be forced that atheistic and theistic theories of roigins are on EXACTLY EQUAL FOOTING. Both are unfalsifiable. Both are unprovable. Both are supported by a weight of scientific evidences. One theory comes from the Word of God and is backed by true God-honoring science. One comes from the word of Darwin and is backed by godless scientists. Both require not blind faith, but a faith based on reason and evidences. A reasonable faith.
Inevitably, the Law of Contradiction demands that both theories of origins cannot be true.
Fortunately, the gus who actually use their brains are in the theist camp.
The fool has said in his heart, there is no God. Precisely because He exists. Their presupposition that there is no God, that there must be a purely natural answer for everything, dooms them to failure, for God exists no matter how much they wish and posture to the contrary.
