All hail Flying Spaghetti Monster!

Behind the Controversy: How Evolution Works
By Ker Than LiveScience Staff Writer

Evolution is well supported by many examples of changes in various species leading to the diversity of life seen today. But others would invoke a higher being as a designer to explain the complex world of living things, especially such specimens as humans.

As a hypothetical example, Darwin used North American black bears, which were known to catch insects by swimming in the water with their mouths open:

"I can see no difficulty in a race of bears being rendered, by natural selection, more aquatic in their structure and habits, with larger and larger mouths, till a creature was produced as monstrous as a whale," he speculated.

I've got to say that at least the religous people keep it entertaining. Intelligent Design - only they could come up with that! It's outlandish, yet almost believable if you just have to know right now where we all came from. We already know 'why' we're here - it's to bow down and give praise to the man. We just didn't have any proof as to how we got here so intelligent design fits nicely.

It is scary to think that this stuff is going to infiltrate science class - I feel really bad for those kids and hope one day, Designer willing, they get a proper education.
