Quoted from a compromise draft of the Kansas state science
standards (posted by Stephen):

Stephen: I've got to dispute this statement. Can variation and natural
selection add or create new information? I think so. And I've
yet to see a reliable and consistent metric of information
proposed by the people who make the claim made above.

The age old "information" ruse used by creationists. When pressed to support it, they fail time after time.
This time it not be different is my guess.
