Evolution is a Myth in Kansas

ThePolack Whose fault is this really? (1503 comments)

I don't agree with the Kansas School Board's decision (being of sound mind), but I hardly see this as something get upset about. I've always believed that education should be controlled (and funded entirely) by states, and not federal govt. If the people in Kansas (the ones who voted at least) want to eliminate evolution from their schools, that is their right.

They're foolish for doing so, but being foolish is their right too. If you don't live in Kansas, get over it. If you do live in Kansas and you don't like this decision, maybe you should vote the next time school board elections come around. The only reason this happened is because those 'backward', 'primitive', 'radical conservatives' were smart enough to take advantage of everyone else's political apathy. If the 'enlightened' people in Kansas had enough sense to vote, this wouldn't have happened. If you neglect your duty to participate in the system, you give up your right to bitch about it. It doesn't take a scientist to figure that one out.
