I don’t think you can have it both ways. Even as the state seeks greater funding for bioscience through its new Kansas Bioscience Organization, the state’s Board of Education is once again taking up the debate again on whether evolution is a legitimate scientific concept or they should be teaching what many call
“intelligent design” (a concept many scientists view as repackaged creationism) which says that evidence exists to prove the universe was designed by a higher power.
There’s no way this ultra-conservative approach is going to co-exist happily with the ever-more-far-out discoveries that science is making which naturally lead to such radical procedures as in vitro fertilization and pre-implantation genetics, let alone the craziness that could be involved with MEMS, particle science, and more.
It seems like a strange argument. I just can’t see how you can argue that the discoveries of science are part of the universe–whether a higher power created it in one piece or as an ongoing process.
