Battle Over Darwin Hits the Ballot Box Again

The recent decision of the Kansas State Board of Education to teach creationism along side science may have political ramifications in November.

Several moderate Republicans and Democrats are running against the conservative evangelicals who decided to re-write the science curriculum so as to add creationism. As we saw with Dover, Pa., where the conservative school board members who changed the curriculum there and were all tossed out of office, the majority of Americans can separate faith from science.

There is nothing wrong with believing in creationism. It is a personal choice. But when it comes to science class, it just does not fit.

It will be interesting to see what happens in the upcoming election.
