It’s crunch time for the Kansas BOE elections. I find it curious that Intelligent Design claims to have no religious ties, but only one of these meetings will be held at a school. The four others are at christian churches.

I’ll do my best to get my extremely poor self to as many of these meetings as possible in search of a valid scientific argument and to try to keep things honest.

  1. That school is a parochial school.

  2. unbelievable. Good luck and I hope you make all the meetings.

  3. As silkworm pointed out, the 5-town IDNet tour playing Kansas during the last week of July will be held in 4 churches and one school.

    That school is a top-notch Catholic (Capuchin) high school, but whoever put together the IDNet brochure is either not concerned about spelling, or doesn’t know beans about Catholicism.

    It’s Thomas MORE Prep School, not Thomas MOORE.

    The school isn’t named after the Irish poet (Moore), but after the Catholic martyr . . . and patron saint of lawyers – Sir Thomas More.

    Likewise, if the purpose of the IDNet roadshow is to promote the new state science standards, why aren’t they appearing in public school auditoriums, state university facilities, libraries, fairgrounds, or any of the other plentiful public gathering sites in our state?

    As silkworm so ably asks, why are they choosing churches and a private school to make their case to the electorate if these new standards are motivated solely by science?

  4. Brock,
    I finally read your blog(?)(not sure if I spelled that right) Anyway, I was impressed…  …and you know even though I’m not as active as you in this “SCIENCE IS THE TRUTH” movement I’m on your side.One thing I grasped more after our discussion last night and reading your blog is that this id movement is gaining political power and possibly corrupting my sons in school. That makes me MAD.
