Fight For Professor Gonzalez!

Senator Brownback is doing his part to help Professor Gonzalez keep his tenure; why shouldn’t we?

“When I was informed that Professor Guillermo Gonzalez was denied tenure, I was puzzled given his excellent academic record of achievement and faithful service. I understand that now two of Dr. Gonzalez’s colleagues have indicated that Gonzalez’s interest in intelligent design theory was, at least in part, responsible for this denial of tenure. This is rather alarming.”

Dr. Guillermo Gonzalez is currently an Assistant Professor of Astronomy at Iowa State University, and has authored more than 65 scientific papers and articles. Dr. Gonzalez developed the concept of the Galactic Habitable Zone and co-authored “The Privileged Planet: How Our Place in the Cosmos is Designed for Discovery, which was published in 2004.” The Privileged Planet provides scientific evidence for intelligent design theory, which challenges neo-Darwinism’s claim that the development of the universe is the result of an unpredictable and purposeless process. Intelligent design theory rather explores recent discoveries in the fields of physics, cosmology, biochemistry, genetics, and paleontology that logically point to an intelligent cause in the development of life and the cosmos.

Brownback continued, “Observation, testing, and the development of reasonable hypotheses have long been integral to good science. Scholars, such as Professor Guillermo Gonzales, ought not to be intimidated nor silenced by those in the academic community who would rather dismiss a well-reasoned hypothesis than debate it on its merits. Such an assault on academic freedom does not bode well for the advancement of true science.”

The treefrogs who whine incessantly about Helioleftism and Darwinism are conspicuously silent on this professor’s status. We should do our part to let ISU know that Professor Gonzalez’s departure will not be viewed kindly by those concerned with True American science. (Hat tip ec1009.)

  1. These libtards all love freedom of speech until somebody says something that’s true.

  2. It’s high time we demand our equal freedom of speech rights in the classroom, the faculty lounge, the newsrooms, the media, and in the international community. We’ve been quiet too long.
    We should not relax until every time some French…I mean some international “science” community member gives his opinion, he is countered with the good news view of a reality based True American scientist. If the current “popular” universities aren’t going to cooperate in producing True American scientists then maybe we should put the weight of the presidency (Sam Brownback in ’08!) behind scientists coming out of such esteemed educational programs like Bob Jones University and Regency. In fact, Answers in Genesis should go to the next logical step and start a university as well.
    One question though, why was the professor teaching the fictional science of astronomy in the first place? (I realize he may be an infiltrator for the cause and under NOC status so you may not be able to answer that question openly.)

  5. He’s bad at his job. Those papers were dreck, pure dreck. He can always get a job at a fourth-tier school, like Regent or Liberty Community College.

  10. I am shcoked and appalled that radical leftists were able to do this to one of the shining lights of Biblical Creation Science, and that our President George W. Bush did not step in with a brigade of Nationalized Guard Troops and FORCE the admistration of this hotbed of satanic idolotry to instate this genius as a full professor, with tenure.

    Is it because he has been drinking again and is off his game? or is it because “tenure” itself is a devilish socialist perversion of good scholarship and a gross distortion of a good employer/employee relationship?

  11. It’s a good article, ec1009.

    Joe Blow- President Bush’s hands are tied by Congress. Unfortunately, there’s little he can do to bypass their liberalism.
