I'm more of a clown then a scholar (not a lot of scholars wear muffin hats)
Basically what I'm trying to say though is that the FSM is a bad and poorly thought out metaphor which is a glorified strawmen taken by many to be a serious argument without consideration.

Do you think the wikipedia article on the Flying Spaghetti Monster is conspiratorial? I can't tell whether you're being facetious or earnest - Poe's Law is rearing its head.

Um...wikipedia? Really?
There's an article on psychic powers too and the Loch Ness Monster.
I'm being quite earnest but clearly you and every one else I've talked to are not.

Why do you think I'm not being earnest? Have I been impolite or dishonest? Sorry if I came off that way.

Is the FSM article improperly sourced? It seems very well sourced to me. Some of the cited sources are:

* the Harvard Civil Rights-Civil Liberties Law Review
* the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe
* the National Academy of Sciences
* the Guardian
* the New York Times
* USA Today

The article isn't hugely biased against theists — it features criticisms of Pastafarianism drawn from:

* the Discovery Institute (an intelligent-design advocacy group)
* Answers in Genesis (a young-earth creationism organization)
* Ph.D Phil Fernandes (a conservative pastor and professional apologist)

I'm not suggesting that the Flying Spaghetti Monster is real. It's obviously a parody. I mentioned the wiki article because it makes this clear. Pastafarianism wasn't created to be a profound thought experiment. It was created to highlight the absurdity of intelligent design because the Kansas State Board of Education — made up largely of right-wing conservative Christians — was attempting to get creationism taught in Kansas high school science classes alongside evolution.

It is the official stance of the US Academy of Sciences that creationism in all forms is not science because it cannot be tested by the methods of science. This is true — creationism should not be taught in science classes.

I do however think high school juniors or seniors be forced to take a semester or half-semester religious studies course, much like they're usually required to take economics and/or US History. A bit of exposure to comparative religion would do Americans a lot of good, because there's far more to faith than the Christianity which is dominant here. Exposure to culture would engender tolerance and openness and it would also, I think, lead people away from dangerous and/or inflammatory fundamentalist views like "teach the controversy" and "God hates gays" and that sort of stuff.

The FSM was conceived by a mind; it's not mindless. It may or may not be cynical depending on how it is used.

(Wow, all notable instances of a specific kind of agenda. Fancy that)

Yep; that's why I pointed out that the article features some of the other side's views.

(Like me. Thanks for insulting me)

My intention was not to insult. The preponderance of empirical evidence and reliably-supported theories are incongruous with all but the weakest "god of the gaps" type intelligent design arguments, which themselves are nothing at all like the creationism arguments the Kansas folks were promoting. Young Earth-type creationism is disprovable by a simple radiocarbon dating of any sufficiently-old substance.

(Like modern education would ever do that)

You're right. It's a pipe dream. But it would be nice, wouldn't it?

(Except where those evil republicans and Christians are concerned...)

Some Republicans and Christians seem evil. But some Democrats and atheists seem evil as well. Politics and religion (or lack of it) do not make any person innately terrible. That's a pretty horrible, hateful, cynical assumption. That sort of assumption is at best otiose and at worse demonstrably harmful to society.

(But you do support inflammatory views like all religion is preached by crazy and stupid people which should be mocked, rebuked and ignored?

That's cruel and libelous. Do you have evidence for this accusation?

Nothing can be "more equal" than anything else. Equality is a binary quality: either things are equal or they are not. Some views are better than others, though. For example, a view that promotes hate of people is better than one that doesn't.

(The FSM is nothing but pure cynicism)

(First of all those reliable theories more often then not rely upon 'evidence of the gaps' like evolution. Second of all, fancy diction and everything but you can't just make unsupported objective statements)

which themselves are nothing at all like the creationism arguments the Kansas folks were promoting. Young Earth-type creationism is disprovable by a simple radiocarbon dating of any sufficiently-old substance.

(Fine and dandy. They and FSM devotees alike could stand to learn more about evolution and religion alike)

You're right. It's a pipe dream. But it would be nice, wouldn't it?

(So you admit that the school system is ideologically skewed? Refreshing)

Some Republicans and Christians seem evil.

(Hmm...how can anything be evil in secular moral relativism?)

(You support the FSM which was invented to silence and rebuke people of religion and is used daily to persecute me and my family)

Nothing can be "more equal" than anything else.
Equality is a binary quality: either things are equal or they are not.

(That's the point. I'm pointing out how people who claim to believe in equality invariably only believe it up to the point they disagree with.)

Some views are better than others, though. For example, a view that promotes hate of people is better than one that doesn't.

(According to...what? Secular reasoning? Law?
Religious authority?)

I wouldn't. We apparently perceive different connotations of the word mindless.

(The FSM is nothing but pure cynicism)

The FSM is a silly, lighthearted parody. It's not purely cynical.

(Other side?)

??

(First of all those reliable theories more often then not rely upon 'evidence of the gaps' like evolution. Second of all, fancy diction and everything but you can't just make unsupported objective statements)

"God of the gaps" is the vague theological notion that "god" is the thing that's always just beyond the bounds of all current knowledge. Evolution isn't comparably vague — it's supported by great masses of physical evidence (thousands of transitional fossils, intricate similarities between all organisms' genetic codes, observations of speciation, etc). More than a century's worth of collected evidence and refined theory suggests that evolution is the best scientific explanation for life's complexity. Of course, the theory of evolution says nothing about how life got here in the first place - that's the question of abiogenesis, which is nowhere near as well-understood.

(Fine and dandy. They and FSM devotees alike could stand to learn more about evolution and religion alike)

I know no FSM "devotees" — only people who casually reference the FSM. The people I've known to reference the FSM are well-educated about evolution and religions.

(So you admit that the school system is ideologically skewed? Refreshing)

Yep! Science belongs in science classes and religious talk belongs in religious studies classes. Creationism and intelligent design are not scientific and should not be taught in biology classes as "alternatives" to the theory of evolution.

(Hmm...how can anything be evil in secular moral relativism?)

In most forms of moral relativism, nothing can be innately evil. I'm not a moral relativist, and I don't know why you're in the habit of making baseless accusations towards me. You're being kinda mean. Have I offended you or something?

(I'm very glad you realize this.)

:)

(You support the FSM which was invented to silence and rebuke people of religion and is used daily to persecute me and my family)

More baseless accusations! In what sense do I "support the FSM"? Is the FSM really used to persecute you? It is a laughable parody. It's so silly, in fact, that I often chortle at the mere thought of it. I don't know how anybody could feel persecuted by mention of an absurd spaghetti deity. Perhaps you could explain?

(That's the point. I'm pointing out how people who claim to believe in equality invariably only believe it up to the point they disagree with.)

Right. Not all views are equal, though. People should be able to say whatever they want, but just because somebody says something doesn't mean it has to be taken seriously or respected. Some views are so disgusting that they deserve to be mocked and derided (e.g. "slavery is ethically acceptable" or "homosexuals should be discriminated against").

(According to...what? Secular reasoning? Law? Religious authority?)

Secular reasoning. I'm a social animal; I benefit from and depend upon a thriving society. It is thus naturally in my interest to promote and sustain society. Hatefulness neither promotes nor sustains society so it is to be avoided.

Watch, I'll use all the thought needed to make the FSM to dispute science.

Mr. McFrankenstien is a scientist. He once analyzed his own snot and determined it changed the polarity of the earth's magnetic fields. Also he lies about facts...just like a REAL scientist would.
Am I right people, huh?
See? See how ridiculous science is? See?
No of course you don't. You're just a stupid science lover.
