The hell is all this then?

Postby Of course » Fri Aug 22, 2008 10:55 pm

Is this really what Matt Parker and Trey Stone had in mind?

One thing I find interesting however, is the fact that the hate mail is put up so the whole little community here can take shots at it through comments.

So let me get this straight anyway...the entire purpose of this is to emphasize the little factoid that the existence of a god is non-falsifiable, somehow rendering it impossible?

Originally, the purpose was to highlight that it would be illogical to teach ID in Kansas public school science classes if they weren't also willing to teach other creationist 'theories.' A self-consistent theory was put forth that the Flying Spaghetti Monster created the universe, the stupid parts of said universe being evidence that he was sometimes drunk.

The KSSB eventually dropped the effort to include Intelligent Design in science classrooms. The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster has taken on a life of it's own outside the ID debate, and these forums are merely a place for people with both senses of humor and an interest in either Pirates or Science to enjoy the thoughts and comments of the rest.

We discuss all sorts of things, including the existence or nonexistence of God. But mostly it's just a fucking joke man.

Yes, this is absolutely what Matt Parker and Trey Stone had in mind! Who are they again?

And no, the whole purpose was to show that teaching ID in science class is retarded.

So I wouldn't seem as retarded, I actually read about 60 pages of specific areas in the forums, so I actually know a lot of people, whether or not they know me.

Translates roughly to:

and your pretty quick off the gangplank, as well.

so come on, then. Let's have a ...boo... the list!



Not sure what he means by have a boo. might be have a bout, or have about... not sure.

sounded like a challange from the "So come on, then." part.

I am not too familiar with the meaning of those words either... I know what a gangplank is, but... quick to walk off one, that is a bad thing, and could easily be taken an insult couldn't it?

Past expieriance, I just got here, and it's not that I feel I am bein insulted, it's that I may have my defenses a bit high, just by instinct. You guys, however are majorally different then...everyone else I meet online, and I rather like it.
The difference being, you guys understand.
