This doesn’t bode well for Myers’ upcoming tenure review. If enough of his peers start viewing him as a liability to science and the University of Minnesota then they’ll give him the bum’s rush just as quick as they did Guilliermo Gonzalez. And PZ Myers’, unlike Guilliermo Gonzalez, has no impeccable publication record to fall back on in protest so it won’t be difficult or unseeming for the tenure committee to give him a thumbs down.
This is very, very bad for us. If PZ Myers didn’t exist we’d have to invent him. Myers does more to give Darwinists a bad name than any man alive. If he’s denied tenure we might be forced to put together a “Save the Myers” foundation to solicit donations to keep his blog alive.
Like DS can even remember what the inside of a university looks like. And if we're going to talk about "liabilities to science" I suggest you start with Dembski and Behe. Do they also have an "impeccable publication record to fall back on" ?
Someone might want to inform DaveScot that it takes more than being outspoken to get tenure revoked.
And, of course, there is the slight diffrence that Gonzales never had tenure, and did not meet the requirements. PZ is already tenured.
To rebut creationism you pretty much have to be a biologist, chemist, geologist, philosopher, lawyer and historian all rolled into one. While to advocate creationism, you just have to be an idiot. -- tommorris
