[Kansas] House Bill 2306, introduced last week, says science classes must “provide information to students of scientific evidence which both supports and counters a scientific theory or hypothesis.”

The bill says instruction about “scientific controversies” should be objective and include “both the strengths and weaknesses of such scientific theory or hypothesis.” The only controversy identified in the bill is “climate science.”

Doncha love the way they conflate theories and hypotheses as if they're of equal importance?

Sometimes disco is the only answer:

It's hardly surprising that when scientists make claims that have political implications that they will receive political scrutiny.


Examine the cases where science has made claims relating race and IQ, if you want to see liberals objecting to such claims.

As a matter of fact, the whole area of race and IQ is pretty much a scientific taboo because of political objections to reserach on a controversial subject.

The Bible thumpers will harp on the phrase "scientific evidence" as being discriminatory.
