Respectful Insolence is a repository for the ramblings of the aforementioned pseudonymous surgeon/scientist concerning medicine and quackery, science and pseudoscience, history and pseudohistory, politics, and anything else that interests him (or pushes his buttons). Orac's motto: "A statement of fact cannot be insolent." (OK, maybe it can be just a little bit insolent.)
I want one of these!
Apparently this Flying Spaghetti Monster answer to the antiscience of "intelligent design" creationism is taking off more than anyone could have anticipated, so much so that Boing Boing is now offering Jim Leftwich's Flying Spaghetti Monster T-shirt for sale at its store. All proceeds will go to the National Center for Science Education, which defends the teaching of evolution in public schools. One neat thing is that you can customize your own T-shirt with different color illustrations and backgrounds to make the shirt as cool as you like! (For me this is an issue, given the large number of black T-shirts I've accumulated over the years; a red or blue T-shirt would be nice once in a while...) I also like the rather abstract nature of the logo. It has no words, which is likely to induce people to ask what the picture is supposed to be, allowing the wearer to educate the curious in the ways of His Noodliness.
Check it out, and while you're at it, there's nothing like this logo as well, which is a bit less abstract and more classically artistic.
