Kansas to redefine science
The Kansas board of education today redefined science so that it is no longer limited to the search for natural explanations of phenomena. This redefinition was needed to allow for ‘Intelligent Design’ in Science classes.
The new standards say high school students must understand major evolutionary concepts. But they also declare that the basic Darwinian theory that all life had a common origin and that natural chemical processes created the building blocks of life have been challenged in recent years by fossil evidence and molecular biology.
