Recent news on this case (Sept. 27, 2005): The Good Report of Guillermo Gonzalez, Author of The Privileged Planet

The initial Evil Avalos’ bashings against Gonzalez declared:

We certainly don’t want to give the impression to the public that intelligent design is what we do.

Next is the introduction of the enlightening book coauthored by Gonzalez and of whom Avalos is going against:

Introduction To The Privileged Planet. Guillermo Gonzalez and Jay Richards. Regnery. June 15, 2005

Next is the complete video based on the enlightening book coauthored by Gonzalez and of whom Avalos is going against:

The Privileged Planet: The Search for Purpose in the Universe (Real Player, 60 min.)

Now Avalos and the other 120 signers of the document will deny that they’re doing anything inappropriate, but let’s be serious. This is Scientific McCarthyism in a cheap tuxedo, as other wise men have declared elsewhere:

Let’s do something to prevent those events of discrimination and ‘absurditism’. My way to do it is through this messages, yeah!

“According to Hector Avalos: “It’s becoming increasingly clear to some of us that Iowa State University is being marketed as an intelligent design research center.” So, on the one hand, Eugenie Scott et al. tell ID theorists and researchers to get busy, do the work and get it through the peer-review process. But now we learn that the very idea of a ID research, much less an ID research center, is out-of-bounds. Heads I win, tails you lose.”

Over, on the ARN forum, Salvador poses a good question for Hector Avalos and his 120 colleagues:

Is Guillermo Gonzalez’s position on ID reason to deny him tenure?

Atheistic and materialistic evolutionists already bashed our beloved colleague Richard von Sternberg; please, don’t let them keep doing so with the rest of us!
