Kansas is looking at incorporating the concept of intelligent design in its school's curriculum and also seeks to redefine science in a broader sense - simply as 'a systematic method of continuing investigation'. The object of investigation is not specified. This means that under this defnition, studying paranormal events such as supernaturals manifestations, can be called science as well.
Intelligent design, the concept which the conservative state is looking to incorporate into its education curriculum, suggests that the natural world is so complex and well ordered that there must be intelligent cause behind it. Or an intelligent cause is the best way to explain the complex natural world we see around us.
This is worrying.
