Astronomer Guillermo Gonzalez's appeal denied. - Academic freedom petition launched
In the wake of the fact that Guillermo Gonzalez's appeal has been dismissed by the Iowa Board of Regents (this was expected, actually, and more later), Discovery Institute has launched an Academic Freedom petition:
Across America, the freedom of scientists, teachers, and students to question Darwin is coming under increasing attack by self-appointed defenders of the theory of evolution who are waging a malicious campaign to demonize and blacklist anyone who disagrees with them. You can help by signing the Academic Freedom Petition
If you are an American, you can go here to sign.
By the way, academic freedom is under severe attack in many forums, not just the study of design in the universe. Go to The Fire to find out the rights you no longer have on many campuses. You can see Indoctrinate U on line, which gives you the idea.
Relax, it's actually worse in Canada. But you must hear publisher Ezra Levant's opening salvo against the tyranny of vague "human rights" charges.
Also: Will the Expelled film be ignored by its friends as well as its foes?
Excerpt: "Establishment savvies knows that most people - even those who should make the time to see the film - won't bother if there isn't a big razzmatazz about it in the media controlled by the establishment. And there isn't one."
