I guess the University of Kansas has had enough of local school board in Kansas trying to wedge creationism into the public school curriculum:

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) – Creationism and intelligent design are going to be studied at the University of Kansas, but not in the way advocated by opponents of the theory of evolution.

A course being offered next semester by the university religious studies department is titled "Special Topics in Religion: Intelligent Design, Creationism and other Religious Mythologies.”

"The KU faculty has had enough,” said Paul Mirecki, department chairman.

"Creationism is mythology,” Mirecki said. "Intelligent design is mythology. It’s not science. They try to make it sound like science. It clearly is not.”
