Dick DeVolved

From a well-known champion of gay rights, some equally sound thinking on science:

Republican gubernatorial candidate Dick DeVos says Michigan’s science curriculum should include a discussion about intelligent design.
He says including intelligent design along with evolution would help students discern the facts among different theories.
“I would like to see the ideas of intelligent design — that many scientists are now suggesting is a very viable alternative theory — that that theory and others that would be considered credible would expose our students to more ideas, not less,” DeVos told the Associated Press this week during an interview on education.

Michigan voters might like to ask DeVos to list those “many scientists” who “are now suggesting” that intelligent design “is a very viable alternative theory” to evolution.

More evidence that inherited wealth can make you stupid.
