Do critics of academic freedom have no better argument than this?
Alvin Plantinga led off with a session on “science and theology as ways of knowing.”
His last performance review shows Coppedge’s supervisors and colleagues with (almost) all their knives out for him.

Q: Who wrote this? The new bill doesn’t mention either creationism or its close cousin, intelligent design. It explicitly disavows any intent to promote a religious doctrine. It doesn’t try to ban Darwin from the classroom or order schools to do anything. It simply requires the state board of education, if asked by local school districts, to help create an environment that promotes “critical thinking” and “objective discussion” about not only evolution and the origins of life but also about global warming and human cloning, two other bêtes noires of the right. Teachers would be required to teach the standard textbook but could use supplementary materials to critique it.
