Read the front-page story in today's New York Times, and you'll have no trouble discerning which side of the Kansas educational battle represents "the good guys." The Times account is distinctly unsympathetic to the "conservatives," who are opposed, of course, by the lib... wait, check that, by the "moderates."
Having won a key vote, the "moderates" have promised, the Times tells us, "to work swiftly to restore a science curriculum that does not subject the Biblical account of Creation to critical attack."
Oh wait; that's not what the story said. They want a curriculum "that does not subject evolution to critical attack."
So it's OK, you see. Questioning the accuracy of the Bible is scientific reasoning. Questioning the accuracy of evolutionary theory is blasphemy.
