In case you didn't know about the FSM . . .

So I was talking to Jenn today, and it occurred to me that there still might be quite a few people were not familiar with the Flying Spaghetti Monster (FSM).
From the Wikipedia page:
The Flying Spaghetti Monster is a deity of a parody religion founded by Bobby Henderson in 2005 to protest the decision by the Kansas State Board of Education to require the teaching of intelligent design creationism as an alternative to biological evolution. In an open letter on his website, Henderson professes belief in a supernatural Creator entity that resembles spaghetti and meatballs called the Flying Spaghetti Monster, and calls for Pastafarianism to be taught in science classrooms, essentially invoking a reductio ad absurdum argument against the teaching of Intelligent Design.

The followers of The Flying Spaghetti Monster (FSM) call themselves Pastafarians, a play on Rastafarians.
