With the debate raging over whether Creationism (or “Intelligent Design”/ID, as it’s often called) should be taught alongside evolution in science classrooms, Bobby Henderson proposes a third alternative – FSM did it.
Gospel pokes fun at the debate from every angle – from a mock Templeton Foundation, promoting science papers proving the existence of the FSM, to ways for the reader to test the claims for themselves. And he does it all with pirates.
Lots and lots of pirates.
I enjoyed reading Gospel. It’s a hilarious book – especially since I’ve been following some of the debate, so I “got” the references. Of course, sometimes Henderson’s sense of humour gets a bit cruel and over the top (sorry midgets, fat chicks, et al).
