Banned ID content at Ball State U features Oxford math prof John Lennox

This from John Stonestreet at Breakpoint,
The two required books for the course are a noncontroversial, standard text on the Big Bang and a book by John Lennox called “God’s Undertaker.” Lennox argues that the claim that science has disproved the existence of God is greatly exaggerated, to say the least. And by the way, Lennox has three doctorates, is professor of mathematics at Oxford, and has an incredibly long and impressive academic resume—hardly a lightweight, you might say.
Lennox is just the kind of alternative voice you’d expect to find in an interdisciplinary honors seminar on philosophical questions raised by science. You’d think Professor Hedin would be praised for giving his students a range of opinions, or at the very least that his academic freedom would be respected.
Haw. To the extent that human beings are regarded simply as one species of primate, academic freedom is a meaningless concept. And making it so is a key achievement of materialist atheism. See, for example, Materialist philosopher Daniel Dennett rushes to defense of scientism.
