Comment on LSU Board says ‘we apologize’ by Ron Stone M.D..

This so-called “report” is nothing more than a smokecreen to avoid any action. Take simply one statement: “In order to get the most accurate and objective assessment…the group went directly to the source.”

Unfortunately, the “source” they went to was not the “objective” and easily obtained information which we are discussing on this website, but students’ perceptions about what they thought was taught.

Why didn’t the “the group” actually to THE source, which is the actual materials taught and used during the Biology classes in question, some of which has been printed on this website?! Then they could all see exactly what was taught and what was not.

This report by the Board is a total embarrassment.

LSU Board says ‘we apologize’

When NPUC decided to solve the problem at Walla Walla – significant changes were made in the staffing of the WW religion and biology departments.I don’t see anything close to that level of resolve in the Pacific Union.Hopefully I am Christ,Bob

I don’t think you’re wrong, Bob. Nothing in this thing speaks of any signigicant changes at LSU. A few “adjustments” as Graham spoke of last year, but nothing else.

Ron Stone M.D. wrote:Ron, I wish you were more respectful of church leadership.

I would give more respect to our leadership when and if they start deserving respect. I still don’t see much to “respect” them for when they have almost totally smokescreened the real issues involved. Sure, they have had their “survey” and “interviews” without addressing the underlying issue(s) we have been discussing on this website for well over 1 1/2 years.

The real reason we have these problems in the first place is that the so-called leadership from Wisbey on up through Graham and the Board have avoided doing their jobs.

You may think, like some on this website, that the problem is just with a few “rogue” Bio profs. It goes much higher than this. The denial of this fact will certainly perpetuate the problems into eons of time into the future.

LSU Board says ‘we apologize’

Sean Pitman wroteUm, could you be more specific? Since you are comfortable calling out names, why don’t you do so now? It would help us to understand who “gets it” and who we need to shrug off.

Well, Prof, I’m called by Shane the “most” censored and deleted, so I’ll add my name myself. The fallacy of Sean’s argument is that when our “opponents” such as those over at Spectrum actually quote people from this website, they quote….Shane and Sean! Of course, this is done in a way to denigrate and criticize, not only them personally, but this website in general.

So, for Sean and Shane to say a “so and so” other person is “hurting” their cause is pure baloney!

The ANN Highlights LSU’s Dr. Lee Grismer – An Evolutionary Biologist

Faith: Prof Kent:How do you figure that this site keeps biology profs with integrity out of LSU? Any professor that is following the Bible, supporting creation, and the SDA church has nothing to hide and nothing to fear.When you say “quality” applicants, just how do you judge their credentials?As far as I am concerned, it is far more important that these professors have a firm grasp on the teachings of creation and the teachings of the Bible than any credentials the world can offer. If that had been the criteria used as a guideline for hiring, we wouldn’t be in this mess now. And that goes for all our SDA institutions.

I agree, Faith. However, the type of leadership (Guy,Geraty,and Wisbey)LSU has had over the past two decades shows why we have evolutionists teaching “evolution as fact” at LSU and those supporting any type of creationism being intimidated, both students, and I would suspect faculty as well.

Does the LSU Board even care about this deterioration in our biblical beliefs. Well, their inaction, ineptitude, and apathy in finding any solutions tell me they don’t, at least the majority who control the Board.

BTW, If you’re a beer or ale drinker, the best are the “darker” and more “robust” varieties, as these have more antioxidants and phytochemical.

Or, you could just eat some oatmeal, barley, or similar whole grain!

Blasphemy of a Different Kind

Shane&#032Hilde: @Ron Stone M.D.: I agree. LSU has not been a shining light for our church. That’s unfortunate. That might be the case for other schools as well.

I have much more knowledge of PUC, and it has as many or more problems as LSU, although these have been, so far, ignored by most. PUC thrives on its “high ratings” from U.S. News and World Report, etc. But, it would get much lower ratings if someone knowledgeable from an SDA rating agency actually did a thorough investigation of the school.

[6/17/11 UPDATE] Two administrators, one biology professor, and one board member resign

Adventist&#032kid: @Ron Stone M.D.:Continue to believe that if you want. Not a scientific sample to say the least, but I just asked roughly 80 high school graduates from this year whether they chose which school they were going to or if their parents did. I didn’t even get ten who said their parents limited their choices or prevented them from going to their first choice.

I’ll continue to believe what I actually see and hear, not some biased opinion from you.

[6/17/11 UPDATE] Two administrators, one biology professor, and one board member resign

David&#032Bee: @Ron Stone M.D.: Tenured professors have a formal protective process before they can be terminated. Both resigned possible from their tenured positions as well.

Do you know this or just a guess? I certainly hope they’re gone from LSU completely!
