Kansas Kreationists strike again

UPDATED: It’s probably fair to say that evolution hasn’t really helped the Kansas Board of Education:

TOPEKA, Kan. - 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.
The 6-4 vote was a victory for “intelligent design” advocates who helped draft the standards. Intelligent design holds that the universe is so complex that it must have been created by a higher power.
Critics of the new language charged that it was an attempt to inject God and creationism into public schools in violation of the separation of church and state.
… “This is a sad day. We’re becoming a laughingstock of not only the nation, but of the world, and I hate that,” said board member Janet Waugh, a Kansas City Democrat.

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

UPDATE: Back in the real world, it appears that the ca cuoc mien phi 2019good creationist folk on Pennsylvania’s Dover Area School Board ca cuoc mien phi 2019got their Darwinian dues.
