Redefining the world

I didn't think it would happen. Kansas school board have agreed that all children in Kansas should be taught creationism in schools, and the board rewrote the definition of science, so that science is no longer 'limited' to the search for natural explanations of phenomena. The new 'Kansas' definition of science will be used to develop student tests.

'The challenged concepts cited include the 'theory' that all life had a common origin and the theory that natural chemical processes created the building blocks of life.'

Next week they redefine mathematics so it is no longer limited to 'getting the right answer to sums'.
