Absolve Kansas from the Union
- U.S. Congress
On November 8th 2005, the Kansas Board of Education, in a 6-4 vote, voted to absolve the definition of science and redefined it as "no longer limited to the search for natural explanations of phenomena."
This new definition will allow not only the scientific theory of evolution to be discounted, but allow the highly flawed and non-scientific theory of intelligent design to be taught.
However, this is not the first time that the Kansas Board of Education has tried to undermine science. In 1999 they voted to eliminate nearly all references to the highly important scientific theory of evolution from their schools. Luckily, the voters of Kansas were able to retroact this grievous act. Yet, these very same voters allowed the road to be taken again.
It is in this light that drastic measures must be taken to protect not only the citizens of Kansas but the rest of the world.
Due to the recent attack upon science, reasoning, and intelligence perpetrated by the state of Kansas, we the undersigned, do formally request that the state of Kansas be absolved from the Union in order to protect those citizens of the United States as well as the rest of the world from undue harm that is likely to be caused by such a flagrant neglect for the established rules of science.
It is our feeling that the only way to protect rational human beings is to absolve the state of Kansas in order to keep it from further ignoring scientific theory and the definition of science, which will have adverse effects not only on the children of Kansas, but the rest of the world.
