Flying Spaghetti Monster on Ebay

Yes, that's right - the Flying Spaghetti Monster (plush toy) is now up for sale on ebay. The seller has promised to donate the proceeds of the sale to the National Center for Science Education, and his employer has promised to match any donation up to $1000 US.

For those of you who don't already know, the Churchof the Flying Spaghetti Monster was formed in response to the decision of a certain school board in Kansas for insisting that Intelligent Design be taught in schools, alongside the theory of Evolution. The idea has certainly taken off in a big way, with the author of the original letter to the school board being given a hefty advance to write a book.

It's important to note that even the Pope has given support to the theory of evolution, distancing himself from Intelligent Design. It just goes to show that not all Christians are threatened by Darwin and his theory.

Greetings iTripped, you have a pretty cool blog here. I was searching for home internet work. I just started my home business and you can see it at this link - home internet work. Your post title caught my eye - Flying Spaghetti Monster on Ebay. I'm just looking for tips on how to be a better mentor. I know that’s not what you’re going on about in this post but I am trying to expand my vocabulary phrases so I can talk to many different personalities. I mean I have to talk to a lot of people and I need to be able to connect with everyone.

Anyways iTripped, this helped. Keep it up, I'll be back.

Darwin died doubting his theory. Read what some of the latest physicists are writing now about the inherant desing implicit in the universe. Carl Sagan and others are not agnostic, repudiating evolution.
Sorry Dave, not threatened, just disagreeing with you, (and the Pope).
