Guess where I won't be retiring?

"TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- 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."
Kansas School Board Casts Doubts on Evolution

The only thing I remember about Kansas was driving through that hellhole when I was a kid with the window down in the car and had a tick fly in and nab me in the back. Thought that sucked, just like I think the idiocy above does. You Go Republicans! (I feel sorry for the moderates of the Republican party - maybe they will get sick enough of this crap and will spin off a 3rd party?) What is it with all this evangelizing? Get a life - I think God would be happier with you if you lived life instead of worshipping him all day long.

It's not as bad as when Indiana officially rules that pi is now equal to 3 :P

National geographic ran an article awhile ago about Darwin "Was he wrong?" Kinda thing... But I think the conclusion was that he was basically right, so... boo to Kansas. I trust the national geo (usually. Except that time they accidently published a tusk prop and claimed it was authentic.)

Sorry for rambling :)

Horrifying thought that Indiana is mixed up in this as well. I grew up there - oh, well - scratch another off the list of retirement spots. Glad National Geo of all mags came to their senses. :)

You seem sypathetic to my current situation, and I swear this is not comment trolling, but could you stop by and provide your opinion?
