Be fair about theories

Kansas School Board,

If y’all are going to teach Intelligent Design Theory, then really, you should also teach Henderson’s “Flying Spaghetti Monsterism”. It is only fair. At a minumum you must explain to him why your fairy tale is so much better than his. Frankly, I do not see a difference.

In fact, I am inclined to support the Flying Spaghetti Monster over your god, as it is new, fresh, and, let’s face it, fun. I think the kids of these days will flock to it like sheep! But you might want to change it to the Flying “Pizza” Monster, as I think people tend to prefer pizza to spaghetti.

Oh, and a question for the Board: are you going to insist that geography courses teach the “Earth is flat” theory along side that audacious “round” idea?
