Even the Catholic World News confirms the widespread reports that "Vatican Astronomer Rips Intelligent Design Theory."
Nov. 18 (CWNews.com) - The director of the Vatican Observatory has lashed out at proponents of the theory of Intelligent Design, the Italian news service ANSA reports.
"Intelligent design isn't science, even if it pretends to be," said Father George Coyne. He said that if the theory is introduced in schools, it should be taught in religion classes, not science classes.
So now that that Kansas School Board has crippled their science curriculum, they're moving on to other critical subjects. According to The Kansas City Star, the Board intends to restrict sex education classes to students whose parents specifically demand them, in writing (eventually resulting in, I fear, more Kansans). As for literature, the Board's Chairman Steve Abrams has been aggressively advocating the banishment of "pornography" in schools, such as the novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.
