Scientists Take Their Ball and Go Home

An article in the New York Times grabbed my attention. Apparently some scientists feel the state board of education in Kansas has displayed its philistine pig ignorance for:

...singling out evolution as a controversial theory, and also for changing the definition of science itself so that it is not restricted to natural phenomena.

Having been educated in science I can see the problem here. But it seems these particular scientists have decided that the students in Kansas had better be punished for their board of education's sins and so they should just stay ignorant.
