If you’ve ever wanted to do something that makes a real difference in the fight for academic freedom, here is your opportunity. We are gathering signatures on an electronic petition in support of Dr. Ben Carson, the renowned pediatric neurosurgeon and Darwin skeptic at Johns Hopkins University. Take a moment now and send a clear message to academic bullies that we will not tolerate their tactics of intimidation.
Go here now and sign! Tell your friends and email lists to do so as well!
Here’s the background. Emory invited Dr. Carson to deliver the university’s Commencement address and receive an honorary degree this coming Monday. But when Darwin advocates on campus got wind of it, they kicked up a protest, gathering nearly 500 signature from professors and students, and published a letter in the student newspaper distorting Carson’s views on evolution and making him sound like a fool.
(From UD News: Basically, the choice is between any stupe who can write his name on a pro-Darwin petition and a non-Darwinist guy who could save your kid’s life. Up to you.)
