    and this is just...hard to find the right word--

    Unbelievable?  Nope, maybe not.  Scary?  Outrageous?  

    Well, ACLU, come on down...we need a Kitzmiller-style smackdown here, obviously.

      to challenge this law as people might think.

      There will be plenty of statements in the record that indicate the true intent of the law.

      The fact that the law specifically mentions just a few theories, one of which just happens to be evolution, will be telling.

      And when the law starts being implemented in the manner it was obviously intended to, it will be in a hamfisted way that will make things even more clear.

      Demand to teach Marxism in highschool economics classes, since after all free market theory is "just theory."   Push this hard and with full seriousness, and see about getting some Marxist professors to come in and teach it.  

      Also look into the case where someone attempted to get Flying Spaghetti Monster-ism into school curricula under the intelligent design loophole and ended up getting it overturned in at least one school district.
