USA Today on the Flying Spaghetti Monster

I previously blogged about the Flying Spaghetti Monster (FSM) here. Now, USA Today has released a story about the FSM: "Insta-faith: Just add hot water." I agree with Dr. Coppenger who is quoted in the article:

“I'm happy to say I think FSM hurts the evolutionists' program since, by mocking the Christian tradition … it reinforces the correct impression that there is genuine contempt for biblical faith in that camp,” says Mark Coppenger, a pastor who teaches at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville. “Besides, the parody is lame, and there are few things more encouraging than cheap shots from one's opponents.”

If you did your research you would know that "FSM" is not a mockery of your Christianity, but is a mockery of the Christian so called science of Intelligent Design. It makes a commentary that the same pseudo science that is the foundation for Intelligent Design can be used to generate any type of fantastical belief without requiring a shred of proof.
