Meatball Flight

Experimental aircraft that creates lift with giant meatballs
  (+1, -3)
(+1, -3)
  [vote for,
against]

Let us first get past the long resolved argument over whether our deity is a physical being. I think this is beyond dispute. And he flies.

Now, I fully accept that he is able to and does override the laws of physics and alter the results of scientific experiments with his noodly appendage, but I think it is worth trying to build an experimental aircraft without wings or ailerons or any other conventional means of creating lift, and equip it only with two giant meatballs, so we can see if these are what gives him his flight capability. Plus, you never know, the acknowledgement alone may move him to touch our craft with his noodly appendage and grant it flight.

Ramen.

       Another possible power source for you, methinks.

       is it like - you understand quantum physics? um, no you don't!

       I would have voted yea for a meatball fight. This is just a flying spaghetti monster thing. The faithful get intransigent when you make fun of them. There has to be a better way.

       [bungston], I would use the term "remain" where you use "get".   

       (and if I were [Treon], I'd delete your anno and recopy it, replacing the word, and putting a note at the top of it about it being a "pro" word, or something)   

       P.S. Beyond making fun, the FSM is the single most convincing argument ever devised against ID, in my opinion. Sure it is satire, and great satire at that, but at its depth, I find it to be a very serious and irrefutable ad absurdum approach to the question. All of this is to say, in my opinion, no, there is no better way, because it is so much more than simply "making fun".
