Artist's rendition of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

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. The Flying Spagetti Monster is a thinly veiled attempt to mock Christianity by reducing it the level of some fictional religion like Pastafarianism.
