From the proposed House Bill 2454 by State Rep. Bill Zedler:
An institution of higher education may not discriminate against or penalize in any manner, especially with regard to employment or academic support, a faculty member or student based on the faculty member's or student's conduct of research relating to the theory of intelligent design or other alternate theories of the origination and development of organisms.
You can almost say you believe anything in academia without as much as a hiccup, until you mention intelligent design. . . then the storm troopers are released.
Baylor University Professor Bob Marks revealed his own research that challenged Darwin's theory of evolution a few years ago, and the result was that he was ordered to take it off the Internet by his employer. What is even more amazing is that Baylor is supposed to be a Christian institution.
Fact is, university administrators are fearful of the Darwinian Machine. In fact, there is an incredible system of entrenched censorship of intelligent design research by established scientists.
David Coppedge, an information-technology specialist and systems administrator on the NASA Jet Propulsion Lab's Cassini mission to Saturn, contended he was discriminated against by managers and demoted because he shared intelligent design videos with co-workers.
Darwinism is kept in place as the sole choice because of intimidation tactics that rival those used in dictatorial government systems.
