While the Kansas School Board is trying hard to dumb down it’s science classrooms, the Board in Utah voted unanimously to continue teaching real science to it’s students. Good for them. They understand what this witness was saying at their hearings.
"By definition, science does not attempt to explain the world by invoking the supernatural," University of Utah bioengineering professor Gregory Clark told the board.
"Intelligent design fails as science because it does exactly that – it posits that life is too complex to have arisen from natural causes, and instead requires the intervention of an intelligent designer who is beyond natural explanation. Invoking the supernatural can explain anything, and hence explains nothing."
Unfortunately, one state senator is threatening to place a referendum on whether to force this crap into the schools on the ballot.
Buttars insisted that all he wants is equal time in the classroom – and it doesn’t have to be the science classroom.
"Whenever anyone challenges the evolution people, they go berserk," he said. "[Evolution] is not a fact . . . We’re dealing with censorship here. If we only taught Shakespeare in English class, that wouldn’t be fair."
More people need to go berserk when idiots like this guy attempt to substitute faith-based science for the real thing.
