You may have heard about the biology professor whose contract was not renewed (that’s corporatese for “who was fired”) for questioning evolutionary dogma. You may also have heard that scyence heretycks must hereupon and forthwyth be denyed tenyure.
Rumor has it – well, it is more than rumor to me, since I have seen the actual powerpoint presentation – that the graduate molecular biology class at a major east coast university ends with a capstone slide – the very last powerpoint slide of the course, summing up the essence of the course for the Faithful, I mean the students – featuring Da Vinci’s painting The Last Supper. The painting has been altered, though, and in the place of Christ is a picture of the flying spaghetti monster.
No agenda there.
