Kansas rejects Science

Kansas education board downplays evolution

Risking the kind of nationwide ridicule it faced six years ago, the Kansas Board of Education approved new public-school science standards Tuesday that cast doubt on the theory of evolution.

I don’t know why I feel somewhat surprised by this, but I am. I suppose, like many people, I expected there would be enough rational people on the Kansas Board of Education that the vote wouldn’t got this way. At least, that’s how I was looking at the issue until I got to this portion of the article:

All six of those who voted for the new standards were Republicans.

After all back in August, Dubyah endorsed the teaching of “Intelligent Design”. That should have been a sign that ID was nonense, but unfortunately it appears these board members voted along party lines rather than for what’s right.

*sigh* What a screwed up world we live in.
