because we're all touched by his noodly appendage

Here's the petition to get FSM (Flying Spaghetti Monsterism) theory to get taught along side evolution and inteligent design in Kansas schools. Also, the site shows concrete evidence that global warming is caused by a decline in Pirates. You can help! go check it out ;)

All this talk of alternative theories of evolution is well and good, but what about the fact that children aren't learning about alternatives to other theories? For example, the Theory of Intelligent Falling.

I think to make FSM truly convincing, they need to add "intelligent" to it somewhere. IFSM or FISM should do it. Let's face it, without intelligence, FSM is just religious mumbo jumbo.

Seriously though, the state of U.S. education is quite worrying enough even without all the Intelligent Design nonsense. Are we on the brink of another anti-science, anti-arts neo-dark age or is this just a minor speed bump? Is India or China or Eastern Europe going to eat our lunches? And I mean that quite literally because we may end up becoming primarily an exporter of agricultural products (as we once were) if we can't compete in other ways.

Nice, another great onion article! First Qian's Moby Dick post (which I put outside my cube for awhile) and now this one. I've got to start checking out the Onion more often...

I wouldn't worry about education in the US, no child left behind will come to the rescue!
