Apparently the citizens of Dover, PA are trend-setters. Yesterday Kansans voted out enough pro-intelligent design folks to create a 6-4 evolution-supporting majority on the state school board. This will likely lead to a reversal of the current Kansas science standards, which now recommend teaching alternatives to evolution.
According to the NY Times, one of the school board members (a former teacher!) who was voted out had described evolution as “an age-old fairy tale” and “a nice bedtime story” unsupported by science.
Now this is a trend I can support.
