Republican Fail

Kentucky's proposed new education standards tests require students to know evolution.  The Kansas City Star reports that Kentucky State Rep. Ben Waide, (R-Madisonville) objects:
"The theory of evolution is a theory, and essentially the theory of evolution is not science — Darwin made it up," Waide said. "My objection is they should ensure whatever scientific material is being put forth as a standard should at least stand up to scientific method. Under the most rudimentary, basic scientific examination, the theory of evolution has never stood up to scientific scrutiny." [Emph. added]
