Getting tenure at a University is tough. There are a million hoops to jump through, and those hoops can be set mighty high. Even being a brilliant scientist doesn't guarantee you tenure... and certainly, promoting complete and utter antiscientific drivel doesn't help. Guillermo Gonzalez, an advocate of Intelligent Design, has been denied tenure at
the University of Iowa Iowa State. The Discovery Institute claims it's from bias.
I certainly hope so. I want to see scientific departments being biased against antiscience.
