Creationism and intelligent design are going to be studied at the University of Kansas, but not in the way advocated by opponents of the theory of evolution. A course being offered next semester by the university religious studies department is titled "Special Topics in Religion: Intelligent Design, Creationism and other Religious Mythologies." "The KU faculty has had enough," said Paul Mirecki, department chairman. "Creationism is mythology," Mirecki said. "Intelligent design is mythology. It's not science. They try to make it sound like science. It clearly is not."
This is in reaction to the state Board of Education’s recent vote to allow the teaching of Intelligent Design in biology classes alongside with the Theory of Evolution. If that wasn’t bad enough, the BOE also chose to redefine science by no longer limiting it to natural phenomena. (see also this ongoing https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=99060")

Kudos to U.K.

Hooray - there is intelligent life in Kansas afterall, well besides Evo and family. :biggrin:

Actually, I have quite a few friends and colleagues who work and live in Kansas. It's an interesting mix of people.
