In the world of special interests, you may attack anything which is not politically correct, but show any weaknesses in Darwinian theory then it becomes an abomination!
In a University at Amarillo Texas, Professor Stanley Wilson was teaching a course called, “Evolution vs. Intelligent Design” using a textbook written by “two microbiologists, two philosophers of science and a technical writer present for students a concise introduction to the cases, both pro and con, regarding major aspects of neo-Darwinian evolutionary theory.” The name of the textbook, “Explore Evolution.”
This course was authorized by the administration for Dr. Stanley to teach through the adult continuing program which means it wasn’t a regular course for students. One of the fears of special interests is that it may be offered that way. An atheist who wasn’t even taking the class nor could he, began a protest which got so intense that it lead to police action. He is a leader of a group called, “Freethought Oasis” where people are free to learn about all kinds of information, well except for intelligent design.
It was funny how one of the school’s administrators, viewed the name of the organization in light of the protest.
“He gave me a card about the organization, the link to their website is below. I don’t know where the free thought comes in though, seems more like the lack of…“
Like any of these special interests, they use disruptive protests in order to intimidate people. This also follows along the line with certain political protests as well. Although, some of those were not as successful.
Due to my accident until my hand heals, I cannot type much more, it’s not easy doing this with mostly one hand…but I want to say this…Farren the leader of this protest used falsehoods to scare the university…His emails and a facebook comment went public even though he claimed he never went public with the case, showing how low he went and his ally…
“Thanks for the heads up. I don’t think the article was referring to you and your group; rather, anonymous phone calls promising disruption.“
