  1. New Report Exposes Sham of Academic Freedom at Baylor University

    Today’s edition of the student newspaper at Baylor University carries a devastating investigative report http://www.baylor.edu/lariat/news.php?action=story&story=48260
    exposing new details of the university’s shameful treatment of pro-ID engineering professor Robert Marks. Anyone who thinks Baylor science faculty have academic freedom to research and write about ID should read this article, which provides extensive documentation of the lengths to which some Baylor administrators will go to censor and shut down open discussion and research about intelligent design. From reading the article, it appears that the intolerance of pro-ID faculty comes from the very top of the institution. This account makes a mockery of Baylor’s own Faculty Handbook, which promises faculty that


    1. Teachers are entitled to full freedom in research and in the publication of the results …
    Given the heavy-handed efforts by Baylor administrators to stamp out any expression of dissent from Darwinian orthodoxy by Prof. Marks, perhaps Baylor’s Faculty Handbook should be rewritten thus:

    1. Teachers at Baylor University should expect academic censorship and persecution in research and in the publication of results, especially if their research in any way questions the dogmas of Darwinian evolution. Teachers who persist in wanting academic freedom in their research should consider looking for another job.

    Message to Baylor alumni: Does this crusade to suppress Prof. Marks’ research make you proud of your university? If not, what are you doing about it? Every dollar you donate to Baylor helps to enable the continued persecution of Prof. Marks.

    The Left and all their theories cannot survive 1) scrutiny 2) without public funding. Thusly they have taken the only route available to them, that of taking over the university scene and blocking all intellectual scrutiny and curiosity....
     
  3. ok, there is an intelligent designer, so what?, he is as fucked up as his creation, what is this system?, it sucks from ground up

    you go take a dump and then, some bacteria inside your shit starts claiming that this universe (the shit) came from an intelligent being, well ya, it came from a human being who has some sort of intelligence, but so what?, it's a piece of shit anyways

    I don't get what's it with this whole fight to prove or disprove a God

    fuck God, his existence doesn't change a shit regarding anything, he is as lame as it can get
