Here’s yet more examples of the idiocy of darwinian fundamentalist nerds.
As can be found here : “Robert Pennock is being paid by UCSD’s Council of Provosts and the Division of Biological Sciences to speak against intelligent design in a lecture that is free and open to the public in UCSD’s RIMAC Arena (which holds about 5000 people). Of course, these groups are all taxpayer-supported. Not only is this free event open to anyone, but TritonLink, the UCSD student website, on its main home-page, reports that Professor Pennock’s lecture is mandatory attendance for all freshmen: “All first-quarter freshmen are required to attend the event, which is open to the public”
Mandatory indoctrination. Good move huh? These people seem to have no end of the ridiculous, “hunt the witch” tactics they use to debunk contrary scienitific thought.
And to show there is no end of this glaring stupidity and censorship from these educated fools: Evoultion fundamentalist and bio text book author Larry Moran says,
Flunk the IDiots
Casey Luskin over at the Discovery Institute reported that University of California, San Diego Forces All Freshmen To Attend Anti-ID Lecture. Apparently, the university has become alarmed at the stupidity of its freshman class and has offered remedial instruction for those who believe in Intelligent Design Creationism.
Salvador Cordova has picked up on this at Dembski’s blog, Uncommon Descent in an article titled “Darwinian indoctrination required at UCSD? Or will the other side be heard someday?”. He notes that 40% of the freshman class reject Darwinism.
I agree with the Dembski sycophants that UCSD should not have required their uneducated students to attend remedial classes. Instead, they should never have admitted them in the first place. Having made that mistake, it’s hopeless to expect that a single lecture—even one by a distinguished scholar like Robert Pennock—will have any effect. The University should just flunk the lot of them and make room for smart students who have a chance of benefiting from a high quality education.
Worse still from this Moron : “Until you IDiots learn something about science you don’t deserve to take up space at a decent university. However, there’s still hope for you. There’s nothing in your comment to suggest that you’ve even reached the age of adulthood. Maybe you’ll get educated before you graduate from kindergarten. “
Here we are once again with the out-dated, easily falsified, BS that says ID scientists know nothing of science. Pure moronic drachenfutter. This guy should be thrown out on his butt and given a one way ticket to Baghdad.
Sore losers to say the best of these “scientists”, if one may abuse the term.
Hopefully none of them will be smart enough to figure out that these repressive actions will bring their own downfall. This kind of publicy funded brain washing and ill behavior, historically speaking, always tends to bring the opposite of the effect hoped for. So far, not only are none of them smart enough but they just keep making it worse!

PS - Since I first wrote this article a lot has happened to confirm it’s truth.
I suppose one of the main widely publicized events is the denial of tenure at Iowa State to Guilmero Gonzalez – a highly respected astrophysicist with numerous peer-reviewed articles and awards. Denial based on prejudice entirely on Guillmero’s ID penchant – as can be seen on many articles across the web.
Evangelical atheist Hector Avalos started a smear campaign against him because he supports Intelligent Design theory. Avalos is an atheist and professor at ISU (head of the religious studies department… go figure) without the intellect to compete with the likes of Gonzalez.
