Once again the IDEA club at GMU may get more press coverage. We made the cover story of the April 28, 2005 edition of the prestigious scientific journal Nature, and another excellent story is in the making.
A reporter from an important news agency interviewed our IDEA group at George Mason University a couple hours ago. The reporter covered our meeting which featured Caroline Crocker as the main speaker.
It was a little heartbreaking to see some of her former biology students come to the meeting offering their interest, gratitude, and support. Caroline Crocker was removed from teaching biology because she spent 20 minutes in one lecture discussing well known problems with Darwinian evolution.
She had believed Darwinian evolution all her life, but began to reconsider as she was bewildered by the complexity of the immune system which is her field of specialty. She paid the price for having an open mind and encouraging her students to have an open mind as well.
Several biology students reported on the unscientific dogmatism of their professors in the classes. I’m glad their voices will be heard. I asked the reporter to be careful reporting the names of the students as they could be targets of an ensuing witch hunt. The biology students boldly declared there names, and stood up for what they believed!
It will be about 2 weeks before the report is aired . (I’d ask those of you who know what agency is involved not to disclose any more details than what I ‘m disclosing here.)
Perhaps for the first time in history, reporters will be airing the concerns of ID biology students as well as faculty at the same university suffering abuse from Darwinists!
