Can I get a “ramen” from the congregation?! Behold the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster (FSM), today’s fastest growing carbohydrate-based religion. According to church founder Bobby Henderson, the universe and all life within it were created by a mystical and divine being: the Flying Spaghetti Monster. What drives the FSM’ s devout followers, a.k.a. Pastafarians? Some say it’s the assuring touch from the FSM’s “noodly appendage.” Then there are those who love the worship service, which is conducted in pirate talk and attended by congregants in dashing buccaneer garb. Still others are drawn to the Church’s flimsy moral standards, religious holidays every Friday, or the fact that Pastafarian heaven is way cooler: Does your heaven have a Stripper Factory and a Beer Volcano? Intelligent Design has finally met its match—and it has nothing to do with apes or the Olive Garden of Eden. Within these pages, Bobby Henderson outlines the true facts– dispelling such malicious myths as evolution (“only a theory”), science (“only a lot of theories”), and whether we’re really descended from apes (fact: Humans share 95 percent of their DNA with chimpanzees, but they share 99.9 percent with pirates!) See what impressively credentialed top scientists have to say: “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. “Do not be hypocritical. Allow equal time for other alternative ‘theories’ like FSMism, which is by far the tastier choice.” –J. Simon, Ph.D. “In my scientific opinion, when comparing the two theories, FSM theory seems to be more valid than classic ID theory.” –Afshin Beheshti, Ph.D. Read the book and decide for yourself!

Are you looking for not just a new religion, but a swashbuckling adventure of a religion? The Gospel of Bowtie, the son of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, brings you enlightenment, critical thinking, and pirates. Toss out all those dusty old scriptures and make room on your bookshelf for scarecrow Nazis, disassembled brain parts, and robotic monks. There is a better book in town, one that does not advocate for genocide, misogyny, discrimination, and slavery. Already a Pastafarian? You can throw away your eyepatch. Bowtie is the new covenant! (Like all good religions, the Gospel of Bowtie is blasphemous in the eyes of other religions. Be forewarned.)

Excerpt: The Flying Spaghetti Monster (FSM) is the deity of the parody religion the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster or Pastafarianism. In 2005, Oregon State physics graduate Bobby Henderson wrote an open letter about a "Flying Spaghetti Monster" as a satirical protest against the decision by the Kansas State Board of Education to permit the teaching of intelligent design as an alternative to evolution in public schools. In the letter, Henderson parodied the concept of intelligent design by professing belief in a supernatural creator that closely resembles spaghetti and meatballs. Henderson further called for Flying Spaghetti Monsterism to be allotted equal time in science classrooms alongside intelligent design and evolution. After Henderson published the letter on his website, it rapidly became an internet phenomenon and a symbol for the case against teaching intelligent design (and religion in general) in public schools. Pastafarian (a portmanteau of pasta and Rastafarian) beliefs-generally satires of creationism-are presented both on Henderson's website (where he is described as "prophet"), and in The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster (written by Henderson and published by Villiard Press in 2006). The central belief is that an invisible and undetectable Flying Spaghetti Monster created the universe. Pirates are revered as the original Pastafarians, and...

In classic Earthworks' easy-to-read style, 50 Simple Things You Can Do to Fight the Right offers inspirational yet practical advice for anyone wanting to reclaim democracy in America, outlining what steps can be taken to restore a balance of political power through everyday actions . . . and why they matter so much. From the simplest efforts (why bumper stickers count) to more committed ones (become a precinct captain) and everything in-between, this small volume packs a punch. Aimed at anyone who is disgruntled with the current political quagmire of lies, deception, uncertainty in Iraq, or anyone who recognizes that our most basic freedoms (free speech, privacy, fair elections, truthful and transparent media, to name a few) are slipping away, this book is a call to action. It encourages readers to stand up for their values, to reclaim patriotism and faith, and, together, to build truly democratic communities. 50 Simple Things You Can Do to Fight the Right outlines a strategy for progressives to strengthen the bonds that unite them and offers concrete steps to express those shared values in the world every day.

Mark Twain's comment that everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it no longer applies: human activities have altered the global climate, and governments are having to act now to avoid more extreme perturbations. Global Climate Change examines the factors responsible for global climate change and the geophysical, biological, economic, legal, and cultural consequences of such changes. The book highlights the complexity of decision-making under uncertainty, contrasting the methods that various disciplines employ to evaluate past and future conditions.

Dr. Darrel Ray, psychologist and lifelong student of religion, discusses religious infection from the inside out. How does guilt play into religious infection? Why is sexual control so important to so many religions? What causes the anxiety and neuroticism around death and dying? How does religion inject itself into so many areas of life, culture, and politics? The author explores this and much more in his book The God Virus: How Religion Infects Our Lives and Culture. This second-generation book takes the reader several steps beyond previous offerings and into the realm of the personal and emotional mechanisms that affect anyone who lives in a culture steeped in religion. Examples are used that anyone can relate to and the author gives real-world guidance in how to deal with and respond to people who are religious in our families, and among our friends and coworkers.
