John Sokol writes "In response to the Kansas School Board decision to teach Intelligent design along side of Evolution, Oregon State physics graduate named Bobby Henderson stepped into the debate by sending a letter to demanded equal time for the 10 million followers of a pseudo-deity called the Flying Spaghetti Monster. From the MSNBC article "There's no more scientific basis for intelligent design than there is for the idea an omniscient creature made of pasta created the universe. If intelligent design supporters could demand equal time in a science class, why not anyone else? The only reasonable solution is to put nothing into sciences classes but the best available science." Wikipedia has a good writeup on it also."
