Mr. Henderson, who said in an e-mail message that his divine vision was induced by “a lack of sleep and a mounting disgust over the whole I.D. issue,” has wit on his side.

And yet the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster flourishes. It even has schisms. A rival faction, based on SPAM (Spaghetti & Pulsar Activating Meatballs), has formed.
