I've never laughed so hard at creationist dishonesty:
|Two of the five active tenured astronomy professors in the department that denied tenure to Guillermo Gonzalez at Iowa State University are connected to a widely-publicized statement that denounces intelligent design as "creationist pseudoscience."|
Iowa State University has made much of the fact that Dr. Gonzalez's tenure application was rejected starting at the level of his department. Now we know that at least 40% of the tenured faculty in astronomy in his department are connected to a statement that regards intelligent design as "creationist pseudoscience" and insists that "it is scientifically inappropriate and pedagogically irresponsible" for it "to be introduced into… science curricula."
For anyone who doesnt know the statement actually reads:
ie nothing to do with teaching at university whatsoever.
|It is scientifically inappropriate and pedagogically irresponsible for creationist pseudoscience, including but not limited to "intelligent design," to be introduced into the science curricula of our nation's public schools.|
I did some investigation of my own and it turns out the project Steve statement also says:
So it turns out it's a pro-ID statement after all.
|Evolution is ... a major ... inappropriate and pedagogically irresponsible ... curricula|
