Kathy Martin: Science Advocate Extraordinaire

If you want to read about the latest Kansas Board of Education outrage on science teaching in all its gory detail, read the poorly headlined but otherwise excellent "Evolution criticisms win more support" by Barbara Hollingsworth in the Topeka Capital-Journal.

Here's an hors d'oeuvre to whet your appetite:

"We want scientific evidence," says Kathy Martin, board member and young earth creationist from Clay Center, Kan. who is supporting the intelligent design redefinition of science. "We don't want any other kind of evidence."

"I think we are perilously close with this document of finding ourselves in court, but I'm in the minority," says Sue Gamble, a Republican moderate on the board who has been a consistent supporter of real science. "I'm not going to prevail, so the sooner the six votes pass the better."
