The Flying Spaghetti Monster is a parody that began as a critique of the Kansas Board of Education's decision to allow the teaching of intelligent design in public schools. Arguing that intelligent design was a thinly-veiled attempt to bring religion into the classroom, Bobby Henderson constructed "Pastafarianism" as a new theological system and argued that it too should be taught alongside evolution and intelligent design.[1] on the notion of "teaching the controversy."

Richard Dawkins uses the flying spaghetti monster in his book The God Delusion attacking belief in God. Some people use a purported belief in the Flying Spaghetti Monster and Pastafarianism as a thinly-veiled attempt to mock Christianity by reducing it to the level of an invented religion like Pastafarianism.
