Evolution’s foes lose ground in Kansas

MSNBC reports on the good news that actual science is pulling ahead of superstition in one of the key battlegrounds for the future of American education.

The Kansas state Board Of Education, which approved changes to the state's teaching standards that basically redefined science to allow for the teaching of the so-called Intelligent Design Theory, changed slightly, becoming more middle-of-the-road, and several members who openly fought the teaching of evolutionary theory in schools lost seats.

Pat at Red State Rabble, however, offers a reminder that this is an ongoing fight.

Still, it's encouraging.

I know it's not my fight - I don't even live in Kansas - but it's nice to see that people still put reality above politics.
