Kansas & Nonsense=1, Science & Reason=0

So the Democrats kept a couple of governorships, and in California all four of Schwarnegger's special-election initiatives were rejected. But while we in Texas took a huge step backwards, it appers that Kansas has gone even farther.

Kansas Board Approves Challenges to Evolution: "Among the most controversial changes was a redefinition of science itself, so that it would not be explicitly limited to natural explanations."

Can we go ahead and start scouting for real estate on Mars now, please? We'll be safe from these people, I promise. Anyone whose definition of science includes "Because God said so" isn't going to be able to follow us, so we can leave them here to make whatever crazy laws they want.

Does this open the gates for "the devil made me do it" criminal defense? Wouldn't that be a valid reasoning along the lines of criminal insanity?

And if Kansas, or any other state teaches Christian-based "alternatives" to evolution (I can't even write that without feeling like an idiot), shouldn't they also be teaching Hindu-based theories, Taoist, and - hell, why not? - begin teaching Greek mythology not as a literature component but as a component to earth science?
I think an astronomy class based on Hesiod's Cosmogony is equally as valid as what these I.D. creationist dipshits are doing, so yeah? Why not?
