Quote of the Day (substitute Darwinism for Global Warming)

“One of the reasons research is being stifled in the U.S. is the pressure from the left for conformity to their agenda. How many scientists have been threatened with the loss of their grants because their work questioned the left’s Global Warming mantra? The decline in science is directly related to its politicalization.”

  1. Dr Dembski asks us to ponder:

    How many scientists have been threatened with the loss of their grants because their work questioned the left’s [Darwinist] mantra?

    So, how many? Can we get any concrete cases of this loss of grant money?

  2. Mivart: Let me suggest you start here. This one is great because the grant was in fact procured, signed-off on by the Baylor president, and then returned — an unprecedented act of the university.

  3. Another good quote for the day it too was in relation to environmentalism but also applies to Darwinism (http://www.crichton-official.c.....igion.html):

    “Most of us have had some experience interacting with religious fundamentalists, and we understand that one of the problems with fundamentalists is that they have no perspective on themselves. They never recognize that their way of thinking is just one of many other possible ways of thinking, which may be equally useful or good. On the contrary, they believe their way is the right way, everyone else is wrong; they are in the business of salvation, and they want to help you to see things the right way. They want to help you be saved. They are totally rigid and totally uninterested in opposing points of view. In our modern complex world, fundamentalism is dangerous because of its rigidity and its imperviousness to other ideas.”"
