Today, Guillermo Gonzalez wrote:

“Things may look pretty bad for me right now, but there have also been some positive developments. In early September, the university president issued a statement reiterating the university’s strong stance on academic freedom. He also decided that ID would be handled by individual departments as they saw fit, rather than university-wide. I considered this a victory, as my academic freedom had been my greatest concern.

One professor who signed the petition told me in an email that he was having second thoughts about it. He didn’t realize this was going to create such a hostile climate for one of the faculty on campus.”

The good report of Guillermo Gonzalez is in sharp contrast with the venom of the main promoter of hate at the Iowa State University, Hector Avalos.

As we stated before, we emphasize it again: Don’t Allow Evil Avalos to Bash Gonzalez!

Update:

Robert concluded with the next encouraging words:

“Dr. Gonzalez: Please do not let these pretentious mediocrities discourage you. Unlike the above individuals, I am actually in a remotely relevant field, and I appreciate teleological arguments.”

Thanks for the update fdocc. It is amazing how some can still deny the witch hunts of ID scientists by religious Darwinians. They justify their persecution with claims of protecting their tyrannical view of materialistic science. Darwinians want to stop science at the altar of Darwin. Any science that does not conform to Darwinian evolution is considered heretical and therefore unscientific.

I wish Guillermo well. It must be extremely difficult to have one’s work and integrity denigrated for just speaking out against an entrenched philosophical mindset. And the Darwinians continues to question why aren’t there more scientists who would come out in support of ID. Who would want to have their name dragged through the mud?
