Intelligent design?

Now this kind of thing always frightens me:
Kansas looks at redefining science

Now I don’t want to get too deeply into theology here, since my own beliefs are ambivalent at best. But like the old separation of Church & State (itself eroding as of late) I think there needs to be a separation of Church & Science.

Why not offer theology classes where children can learn about “Intelligent Design”, and let the science classes keep teaching “Evolution”?

Kids get old fast these days; let them explore topics that they’re drawn to.

In the meantime, I’m going to thank Articulus (y’know, the being from Tau Ceti that created Earth) that I don’t live in Kansas.
