Thanks for another great year everybody!

I’ll leave you with a link to the website about the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.  We didn’t really get a chance to talk about some of the controversy regarding teaching evolution, however, I think you’ll enjoy this.  It is a spoof on Intelligent Design and the arguments that people make to explain why Intelligent Design is a “science” (it is NOT) and why it should be taught in schools along with evolution (which IS SCIENCE).  You should start by reading the “Open letter to the Kansas School Board”.  The Kansas School Board voted in 2005 to change the science teaching standards and require schools to teach intelligent design in science class.  By 2007, the members of the school board (which had changed by then), voted to revoke their amendment so that the definition of science was returned to “the search for natural explanations for what is observed in the universe.”  No supernatural beings involved.  Yea for science!  Okay, I could go on and on…but here are some links:
