Evolution, Faith, and Ignorance

A little bit late with this post, but Lawrence Krauss wrote an excellent editorial a few weeks ago in the New York Times on why the Kansas school board victory was only a minor one, and why a larger battle must be waged against scientific ignorance.

As Krauss puts it, "We must hold our elected school officials to certain basic standards of knowledge about the world. The battle is not against faith, but against ignorance." I certainly agree. And I wonder, as I've wondered so often in recent years, just how long it will take before evolution is left in peace, not just in Kansas but across the entire country.
