Flying Pasta Monsters Part II

A while back I blogged about John Rennie's concerns over the flying spaghetti monster and how it is 'supposedly' derisive of religion. He has recently seen the light (pasta?) and posted a follow up over at the Scientific American blog.
I'm now more comfortable with the argument that the FSM generally focuses its satire enough on its intended "creation science" targets for reasonable devout people to take its point without offense. Properly used, it can do a lot of good.
Well, Ramen to that.
