A close up of reality according to Pastafarianism

In a landmark ruling the fabricated religion Pastafarianism, the religion of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, is to be taught in Physics in US Creationist Faith Schools.

"We are quite upset," said leading Creationist, Michael Behe. "For years we have campaigned for Intelligent Design to be taught alongside evolution in school biology classes only to be knocked back time and time again. The first time Rasta Pasta, the head of Pastafarianism, asks for Pastafarianism to be taught along side physics in our faith schools, the governors capitulate."

Pastafarianism maintains that all matter, living and organic, is made of small vibrating spaghetti hoops made from the body of the Great Spaghetti Monster.

"Unfortunately," said Cody Coe, Head of Governs for the Texas State Faith School Board, "when Rasta Pasta came to us and explained that Pastafarianism makes as much senses in physics as Intelligent Design does in Biology, we had to agree."

The Rasta Pasta, the Great Spaghetti Monster's representative on Earth, is quite pleased with the result.

"We put together quite a good proposal," he said. "Richard Dawkins funded it. He was quite open about the funding, and the reasons for the funding. However, there was nothing the Faith School Board could do. Mr Coe had to agree with me."

Behe is challenging the decision in the high court, but as yet, is unable to find a sympathetic judge.

Judge Tempa Mental, who was one of the first approached has no sympathy at all for the ID Movement's plight.

"Let's see how they like it," he said.
