Comment on LSU’s PR Campaign: ‘Evolution is Not Promoted at LSU’ by Casey.

I love Dr. Grismer, Bradley, and McCloskey. They are such intelligent, funny and caring professors. They made my time at La Sierra worth the dinero. I wish I could have gotten to know Greer too. He seems like a cool guy. It’s so funny to read all these negative comments about them from people who’s opinion comes from “he said she said” third party statements. Seriously people, they are awesome professors and good hearted men. It’s also ridiculous that teaching evolution has become an issue. Seriously? is this what we are going to waste our time on? What about loving each other and communing with each other. Why are you so afraid of this scientific concept that you would dedicate so much time and effort into slandering and demonizing those who teach it. It is clear that your faith is so week that you believe the teaching of a legitimate scientific theory could be the downfall of the SDA church. Couldn’t your time be better spent showing unconditional love, upholding peace and unity? The Educate Truth movement reminds me of the Westboro Baptist Church. They get hung up on trivial issues while people starve, suffer from disease and disaster, fight wars and such.

LSU’s PR Campaign: ‘Evolution is Not Promoted at LSU’

First you appear to argue that it is “demonizing and slandering” to admit that these LSU professors are actually teaching evolutionism as the right answer for a doctrine on origins of the complex genomes that we see in nature today — and then you appear to turn around and play the other side of the lane as well by making a statement claiming in effect that “teaching evolutionism is a good thing”.

You completely twisted my words. I never said it is demonizing and slandering to admit teaching evolution. I said that they are being demonized and slandered for teaching it. Stop trying to make me look like I contradict myself just because you feel threatened by my comment. That is the problem with people arguing against evolution. The only good argument they can come up with is in response to a twisted version of their opponents words.

@mrs1329: Thank you, I was starting to feel pretty lonesome on this thread. I am sorry that you and the rest of the bio students have to finish your college careers without Dr. Bradley. My experience there would have been much less fulfilling without him. We can honor him for standing up for what is right and follow in his footsteps. Good luck with finals!

@shayne: When did I ever say that following the Bible story of creation is unloving. I said “Educate Truth” is unloving. Not because they believe in the literal translation of the Bible. But because they are so vehemently and hatefully against those who don’t.

@Jonathan: Like I said before, regardless of the reasons for the resignations, this site is wrong and petty. You can read my above comments as to why. This is a public thread so I can rant and rail all I want. I don’t have to wait till evidence supports any claim. I’m taking advantage of my freedoms so excuse me. Hilde can ban me or erase my messages if he really wants to. In addition, I never stated my stance as a Christian or not or my faithfulness to the Bible or not. So you are speculating as well. I clearly have a different view than most on this board so I expect the wave of comments against my favor. Which is fine. But why is it small for me to attack Hilde? He puts up a controversial website and expects no one to disagree? and now you are attacking me as well. You are being hypocritical. But I welcome your “attacks”. I’m not afraid of whatever you have to say. And I respect your belief in the literal translation of the Bible but it really leaves little for us to even argue…

@Shayne: I didn’t say creation is absurd. I said to teach it in a science class is absurd. And I didn’t say believing in it is ignorant. I said insisting it should be taught in a science class shows ignorance for what science is. Surely I disagree with your literal translation but I don’t think you are absurd or ignorant. I believe that people should be left alone to have their beliefs in peace. But, a science class only has room for science. And I don’t have to go to a state university to learn the theory of evolution. La Sierra does a great job of teaching it as they should.

@Shane: What educate truth is doing that is wrong and petty: trying to get people fired over upholding academic integrity, when these people indeed care deeply about their students and are quality teachers, trying to turn people against La Sierra with your campaign, putting a lot of time and effort into crying over the fact that La Sierra biology teachers teach evolution when in fact they would be unfair and dishonest teachers to leave it out. Insisting that creation be taught in a science class which is completely absurd and screams scientific ignorance. Seriously? an entire website dedicated to smear a good school and teachers within. Truly pathetic and whats more amazing is that it’s starting to work. If you need more reasons I think rereading the comment of “City Lights – Mon, 06/13/2011 – 20:11” on the spectrum website is very accurate
