#20 - Burden of Proof

The Flying Spaghetti Monster was created in 2005 as a riposte to a decision by the Kansas State Board of Education to permit the teaching of intelligent design as an alternative to evolution in public school science classes. See also Russell's Teapot and the Invisible Pink Unicorn

A lonely teapot orbiting the sun
is unobservable from anywhere
created by intelligence for fun,
impossible to prove that it's not there.

She calls to us, and we cannot evade
the paradoxes into which we sink
a goddess out of naught and colour made,
a unicorn invisible and pink.

His noodly appendages reach out,
enfolding everyone in pirate cheer,
as he proclaims to circumvent all doubt
"Just tell me to my face that I'm not here!"

Three entities connected by one truth
it isn't science if it's beyond proof.
