Darwinist Suppression Exposed on the Big Screen
Everyone knows about Galileo’s suppression.
Galileo’s championing of Copernicanism, particularly the heliocentric model of the universe, was controversial within his lifetime. The geocentric view had been dominant since the time of Aristotle, and the controversy engendered by Galileo’s opposition to this view resulted in the condemnation of heliocentrism in 1616 by the Catholic Church as contrary to Scripture. Galileo was eventually forced to recant his heliocentrism and spent the last years of his life under house arrest on orders of the Inquisition.
But many don’t realize that suppression of dissenting views in science continues today. No, it’s not the Catholic Church doing the suppressing. It’s a different “church” and a different dogma. It’s “high priests” are high profile atheists and evolutionists like Richard Dawkins. It’s apologists are activist professors like P.Z Meyers who run anti-creationist blogs. And it’s “god” apparently is Charles Darwin. And quite frankly, anyone who disagrees with Darwinism and flirts with Creationist/ID ideas is in danger … not of house arrest … not of getting burned at the stake … no, no … we are more sophisticated than that. You’ll just be denied tenure, or you won’t get promoted, or you’ll get demoted or some such thing. See the “Smithsonian Darwinists Harrass Competent Scientist for Publishing a *Gasp* Intelligent Design Paper” for a perfect example of such harrassment.
Thanks Ben Stein and company for doing this much needed work! I hope your movie is a great success.
(I recall that Michael Behe once said that he didn’t dare publish “Darwin’s Black Box” until AFTER he got tenure. Does anyone have a link for that quote?)
