“If Intelligent Design is taught in schools, equal time should be given to the FSM theory and the non-FSM theory.”
—Professor Douglas Shaw, Ph.D.

It all began in June 2005 when Bobby Henderson of Oregon wrote an open letter to the Kansas School Board proposing a third alternative to the teaching of evolution and intelligent design: the teachings of The Flying Spaghetti Monster (FSM).

The FSM appeared to Bobby as a giant ball of spaghetti, with meatballs for eyes, and touched Bobby with "His noodly appendage"–resulting in the revelation that the FSM is the real creator of the universe. The FSM faithful look to Bobby as their prophet and spiritual leader. They call themselves FSMists or "Pastafarians."

What would be comical if it weren’t conceived as a real challenge to the decision to teach Intelligent Design alongside the scientific theory of evolution, Bobby’s letter and “movement” sparked real worldwide interest and ignited academics and Kansas School Board members alike to write in with words of support. Students also began “proselytizing” across campuses nation-wide, and it was all-too-clear that there needed to be a book to lay out the FSM scripture, rites and observances, proofs, and answers to the Big Questions. So here is that book: a humorous and tongue-in-cheek read albeit a serious, and Intelligent, subtext.
