This would be funny
if it weren't so serious:
Scientists have refused to participate in state Board of Education hearings this past week on how the theory of evolution should be treated in public school. . . .
But the boycott has frustrated board members who viewed their hearings as an educational forum.
"I am profoundly disappointed that they've chosen to present their case in the shadows," board member Connie Morris said. "I would have enjoyed hearing what they have to say in a professional, ethical manner."
Evolution is the most important concept in biology and one of the most important in science in general; it is not something that needs to be debated by the Kansas School Board, anymore than gravity or DNA being the genetic material.
