Devovlving in Kansas

ID - Intelligent Design - Idiot Desire is alive and well.......

In a hearing room packed with high school students, teachers and national media, the Kansas State Board of Education on a 6-4 vote approved a new set of science standards that question the veracity of evolution theory.

"This is a great day for education. This is one of the best things that we can do," said the Board of Education's chairman, Steve Abrams, who is on record as saying evolutionary theory is incompatible with the Bible's version of God's creation of life on Earth.

Hell, this clown even admits his problem is that evolution isn't the Biblical story. And ID isn't science.
Kansas became the laughting stock 6 years ago when it pulled the same stunt in the name of Creation Science. That school board was then voted out. The Christian right has once again gained control and is trying it again.

On the other hand the voters took control in Dover Penn. voted out eight of the current school board members.

DOVER, Pennsylvania (Reuters) - Voters on Tuesday ousted a Pennsylvania local school board that promoted an "intelligent-design" alternative to teaching evolution, and elected a new slate of candidates who promised to remove the concept from science classes.

The board of Dover Area School District in south-central Pennsylvania lost eight of its nine incumbents in an upset election that surprised even the challengers, who had been hoping for a bare majority to take control of the board.

The new board, which includes teachers, opposed the incumbents' policy of including intelligent design in science classes.

Now let's see if Kansas will wise up a second time.
