Flying Spaghetti Monsterism

I would like to introduce you all to the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, to which I am now a subscriber. The head of the church has written to the Kansas City School Board (apparently controlled by a six-member Majority of Stupidity [think "Axis of Evil" only less likely to invade France, South Korea or Iran]), informing them that, if they are going to teach the so-called "theory" of intelligent design alongside evolution, they should also teach the theory that the universe and everything in it was created by the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Because, after all, if it's better for students to hear two ideas about the Origins of Species, three would be even better. And we wouldn't want the students to not get a well-rounded education, would we?

Of course, if they used these 'theories' to teach critical thinking skills (they won't), then it might have some justification.
