David Awbrey, former editor for the Wichita Eagle, was hired earlier this year as press secretary for the Kansas Board of education. Earlier this month, Awbrey put his foor in his mouth at a Kansas City Press Association event. Awbrey argued that evolution proponents are practicing a religion. Supporting evolution, he said, is metaphysical speculation.
“Anyone see the origin?” he said. “Anyone see the Big Bang? Anyone see the dinosaurs? These are metaphysical speculations.”
Awbrey and the KBOE ought to make a trip to the Sternberg Museum at Fort Hays.
