judge state's commissioner for higher education has ruled that the Institute (heh) of Creation (heh heh) Research (HAHAHAHAhahahaha) can't award Masters of Science degrees.
I mean, duh. The
judge commissioner said, basically, that religion isn't science.
But then the
judge commissioner said:
Religious belief is not science... Science and religious belief are surely reconcilable, but they are not the same thing.
Perhaps some aspects of religion are reconcilable with science, but not the idea that the Earth is 6000 years old. That's just wrong.
The money quote is here:
"What they are calling science education has as much to do with science as reality television has to do with reality," said Paul Murray, a geophysicist from Austin.
Man, I'll have to remember that.
And to the ICR, I say: <Nelson>HA ha!</Nelson>
