Revisiting a topic that exposed Kansas to nationwide ridicule six years ago, the state Board of Education approved science standards for public schools yesterday 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.
Nobody seems to follow genetic studies close enough to care that these studies cast serious doubt on macro-evolution as espoused by the conventional wisdom. If a person doesn't want to believe in a higher power, fine. But science should be based on observable, reproducable data. Evolution is a nineteenth century idea that is still adhered to fanatically by conventional wisdom. It's not science.
Evolution may have its gaps but it is still by far the best theory we have. Of course it should be questioned as should all other scientific theories but claiming that it is all the work of a higher being? That is not science, it's admitting you don't know something and thinking that is okay. Science isn't stationary it's constantly evolving when new discoveries are made, but the minute you say a higher power is responsible that all ends.
