Anti-evolution group sues to block Kansas school science standards

TOPEKA, Kan. — An anti-evolution group filed a federal lawsuit Thursday to block Kansas from using new, multistate science standards in its public schools, arguing the guidelines promote atheism and violate students' and parents' religious freedom.

The group, Citizens for Objective Public Education, had criticized the standards developed by Kansas, 25 other states and the National Research Council for treating both evolution and climate change as key scientific concepts to be taught from kindergarten through 12th grade. The Kansas State Board of Education adopted them in June to replace evolution-friendly standards that had been in place since 2007.

Can't argue with their concern. Trouble is, "evolution-friendly" guidelines are just the messengers, and killing the messengers doesn't kill the bad news, when the bad news is the real world.

Not only is it sad for those whose minds are kept in the dark- it's sad for all of us when some choose to not believe that the Earth is finite and that we need to take better care of Her if we want a future for our children.
