(Note: I missed this story in 2017. Here it is now. Better late than never.)
A scientist who found soft tissue in a dinosaur fossil, and published it, has won a settlement of nearly $400,000 from the university that fired him, so says his lawsuit, for his religious beliefs (http://godreports.com/2017/08/university-settles-lawsuit-with-scientist-fired-after-he-found-soft-tissue-in-dinosaur-bones/?fbclid=IwAR27_ZK50kAexjYB2mx4BSfvDnNgsD2k7lBBn8WyRaq9cMwOgY55Nv7z13w).
Mark Armitage, who managed their electron microscope lab in 2010, accepted the settlement from California State University at Northridge. The looniversity denied any religious bias, heh-heh. Despite the fact that a biology professor came into Armitage’s lab and announced, “We are not going to tolerate your religion in this department.”
Hmmm… What do you suppose would’ve happened, had Armitage been named Abu Shebet instead of Armitage, and was a Muslim? How many looniversity officials would have had to hang themselves before the Democrats’ wrath was satisfied?
Nowadays, just two years later, Settled Science finds itself stuck with dinosaur soft tissue, it just won’t go away. Now that they know how to find it, everybody’s finding it.
Armitage’s thought crime was seeing soft tissue as evidence that the fossil couldn’t possibly be tens of millions of years old; and that Darwinist dogma, tied as it is to an earth that’s billions of years old, can’t possibly be true. You are not allowed to think that, if you’re on a college campus.
Dinosaur soft tissue offers only two possibilities. Either our whole understanding of fossilization is all wet, or the fossils are nowhere near as old as they’re supposed to be. Either way, Settled Science gets egg on its face. They’re learning toward Door No. 1, Monty… They’ll sacrifice their own credibility to save Darwinism.
Because they’ve got so much invested in it, politically. Without Darwinism, communism and socialism take a major hit. No true academic intellectual would allow that to happen.
