Steve Abrams, the Arkansas City veterinarian who chairs the Kansas State Board of Education, is leading the fight to inject criticisms of evolution into state science standards so kids can weigh the supposedly competing evidence and make up their own minds. But Abramsâ€™ mind sure sounded made up in a speech last week in Independence, as reported by the Lawrence Journal-World:
“At some point in time, if you compare evolution and the Bible, you have to decide which one you believe. Thatâ€™s the bottom line,” Abrams said.
At the same event, board member Iris Van Meter asked the crowd to “pray for six of the conservative members that God will use us to see some life-changing things happen for the children of the state of Kansas.”
More evidence that what the state of Kansas really needs is some changing of the board.
