In those few paragraphs, there’s a great deal of misinformation about academic freedom laws, how they harm science teaching and imperil students and educators.
It’s a blatant untruth that “fetuses cannot feel pain,” as neuroscientist Michael Egnor explains.
Whether the subject is evolution or climate change, the purpose of accusing someone of “science-denial” is to keep that person in line.
If the future of science is really at risk, then surely not debating evolution is folly.
It was a turning point in the effort to secure academic freedom for science teachers.
