Evolution-only president has heart attack

Is this guy getting a hint?

When University of Idaho President Tim White last week banned anything except evolution from being taught in science classes, he made national news.

He made local news in Idaho yesterday by having a heart attack – his third.

White’s edict came as a University of Idaho biologist, Scott Minnich, a supporter of the "intelligent design" theory, was set to testify in a Pennsylvania lawsuit brought by eight families trying to have this theory, branded as a new form of creationism, dropped from a school district’s biology curriculum. Minnich was asked to testify on behalf of the district.

Hours after White’s letter reached students, staff and faculty on Tuesday, the Discovery Institute, a Seattle public-policy group that funds research into intelligent design, blasted the order as an unconstitutional assault on academic freedom and free speech.

About waynem

As a Minnesota based photographer and artist I have been greatly influenced by the Upper Midwest. I focus my skills and energies on portraits, landscapes, cityscapes, architectural and fine art work. My best work comes from images first painted in my mind. I mull over a prospective image for weeks or months, seeing it from different angles and perspectives, then finally deciding what to capture. The result is images that deeply touch people's emotions and powerfully evoke memories and dreams. My images are used commercially by companies and organizations ranging from Financial Services firms, mom and pop Ice Cream shops and The Basilica of St Mary to communicate their shared vision and values. Book and magazine publishers have featured my images on their covers. My photographs also grace and enhance the decor of many fine homes.

    What IS encouraging is that both sides to the argument are set forth…I mean, now we have debate in many places. Hopefully, more to come!

    Unbelievable. It doesn’t get much clearer than this, does it? That is, the flagrant attempt at imposing a materialistic worldview. Naive. lgp
