Kansas’ State Board of Education is holding a public hearing this Saturday on the proposed statewide science standards which include a redefinition of the word “science” intended to remove bias towards “naturalistic” (non-theistic) belief systems. Pat Hayes, author of Red State Rabble, writes that the rephrasing — proposed by a group of eight Intelligent Design supporters — would remove the sentence “Science is the human activity of seeking natural explanations for what we observe in the world around us.” The eight ID supporters were are a minority of the 26-member committee that wrote the standards, but make a majority on the state board.
