Make Way for the FSM!

Why was Dorothy so eager to get back to Kansas, anyway?

The Kansas Board of Education voted Tuesday that students will be expected to study doubts about modern Darwinian theory.
Thankfully, at least one member of the Kansas Board of Education has the good sense to be ashamed:
"This is a sad day, not only for Kansas kids, but for Kansas," said Janet Waugh, who voted against the new standards. "We're becoming a laughingstock, not only of the nation, but of the world."
Obviously not everyone on the Board felt this way:
"This is a great day for education. This is one of the best things that we can do. This absolutely teaches more about science," - Steve E. Abrams, the Kansas Board of education Chairman - also a Creationist.
"Idiot!" - Napoleon Dynamite
However, apparantly eveolution is good enough for penguins:
What I find most interesting about this article is the following: "Because it is so well documented, even people who don't believe that evolution can lead to the creation of new species accept that microevolution occurs."
Except on the Kansas Board of Education.
Its obvious to me that these people who believe in MICRO-evolution but not evolution proper have not completely thought this through. Thankfully, I have the answer to this conundrum.
Clearly these penguins were lucky enough to be touched by His Noodly Appendage.
