If this bill is voted on, and pass it will exempt private grad schools like the Institute for Creation Research from government control pertaining to allowing which private school will be state sanctioned to give out degrees in the state of Texas.
Controversy sprang up when ICR moved it’s headquarters from California to Texas. Under Texas law, the board decided it would deny ICR from giving out a masters degree in science. Previously, ICR was able to give out a master’s degree in science under California’s laws for many years. The Texas board decision was largely influenced greatly by special interest groups including some educators who rallied last year to voice their opposition.
Requirements for being eligible for this exception in this bill includes the following…
1) The private school does not accept state funding of any kind to support its educational programs.
2) The private school does not accept state-administered federal funding to support its educational programs.
3) The private school was formed as or is affiliated with or controlled by a nonprofit corporation or nonprofit unincorporated organization.
4) The private school offers bona fide degree programs that require students to complete substantive course work in order to receive a degree from the institution.
I believe Institute for Creation Research meets this requirements. The bill is great news which keeps the government and some educators who claim imperialism on science no matter if it’s a private funding school or not out of the private sector. But it isn’t science some what claim…Well that give out degrees for people to conclude some of the strangest things ever invented by the human mind as noted as an example in a recent science daily article…
“Evolution might have played an important part in the human hankering for salt. Humans evolved from creatures that lived in salty ocean water. Once on land, the body continued to need sodium and chloride because minerals play key roles in allowing fluids to pass in and out of cells, and in helping nerve cells transfer information throughout the brain and body.”
“But as man evolved in the hot climate of Africa, perspiration robbed the body of sodium. Salt was scarce because our early ancestors ate a veggie-rich diet and lived far from the ocean.”
This is like saying suppose one hears a huge bang from a distance, and one asks, “what was that big bang and where did it come from?” And gets a reply, “Nothing, it just happened otherwise we wouldn’t be here, right?” Just to think of the foolishness of claiming humans like the good taste of foods with salt (which is claimed to be “Nature’s Antidepressant”) because it’s our so-called inner fish. Quite frankly people like sugar more than salt, I wonder how that fits in with this fish story they call science.
Here is another one, yet to be discussed in science daily but could be in the future by some evolutionist, the color blue is most pleasing to the human eye, is that because we supposedly evolved from a blue ocean? Is blue another antidepressant in nature? I don’t know about you, but this sort of research is not science, I’m so glad that there are places like ICR which teaches sound methods for science!
