      This "Onion" report, in the usual style of the publication, is hilarious. Even though the report didn't say so, I'm pretty sure Representative Bob Bethell is a Republican. As political force, this group of public figures appear to be intent on setting society back a few hundred years at least.

      The Kansas evolution hearings were a series of hearings held in Topeka, Kansas, United States May 5 to May 12, 2005 by the Kansas State Board of Education and its State Board Science Hearing Committee to change how evolution and the origin of life would be taught in the state's public high school science classes. The hearings were arranged by the Board of Education with the intent of introducing intelligent design into science classes via the Teach the Controversy method.[1][2]

      The hearings raised the issues of creation and evolution in public education and were attended by all the major participants in the intelligent design movement but were ultimately boycotted by the scientific community over concern of lending credibility to the claim, made by proponents of intelligent design, that evolution is purportedly the subject of wide dispute within the scientific and science education communities.

      The Discovery Institute, hub of the intelligent design movement, played a central role in starting the hearings by promoting its Critical Analysis of Evolution lesson plan[3] which the Kansas State Board of Education eventually adopted over objections of the State Board Science Hearing Committee, and campaigning on behalf of conservative Republican candidates for the Board.[4]

    The Onion does a great job of sprinkling elements of truth into their satire. I can imagine 50,000 years from now the devolved species of Homo kansans will be a popular house pet.

    Well, I guess this would be a perfect example of stupidity run amok in America.

    Satire? It's not even funny.

    However, it does demonstrate government lack of vision of the future and it shows that "separation of church and state" is a problem within this particular state.

    Not to mention, it would put a law into place in which it(state officials and police) would be unable to enforce.


    WOW! What a joke! lol

      How can you say that?  As they mutate and evolve they will be collected and spend the rest of their miserable lives in jail!  Animal cruelty, that's what it is. lol
