So Kentucky is adapting new science standards for educating younger generations while creationists/science deniers are crying "This will lead to socialism and genocide." This is not surprising coming from a state that features the Creation Museum which is headed by Answers in Genesis front man Ken Kam. However, the idea that people would be scared of educating our children with facts is still a frightening thought.
