Kansas Rejoins Civilization
« on: January 09, 2007, 02:45:09 PM »
Kansas Board of Education Moving Fast to Rewrite Anti-Evolution Teaching Curriculum

A new majority on the state school board is moving more quickly than anticipated to rewrite anti-evolution science standards adopted less than two years ago...

Though I did enjoy all the great comedy material that resulted from Kansas electing idiots to their school board.

I noticed that someone put "liar" and "unprovable" and such as tags. Now, I know that I am unable to prove that Kansas has indeed rejoined civilization. Certainly one excursion back to sanity does not necessarily "prove" that they have returned to civilization. But please, dear forum members, can we not give Kansas the benefit of the doubt, and assume that they will continue on this path to rejoin the rest of us? I think we owe it to them. We should welcome them back with open arms.

So....you're implying that we are civilized?...

Er... good point.  :) As someone once said, it is not a good thing to be "well adjusted" to an unhealthy culture. But I was mostly just trying to joke, rather than reacting negatively to the anti-evolution tags. If people want to believe that we were first created from dirt after civilization had already began, that's their right.
