    The Pacific Justice Institute reports the following: “A scientist was terminated from his job at a California State University after discovering soft tissue on a triceratops fossil, and then publishing his findings. . . . While at a dig at Hell Creek formation in Montana, the scientist, Mark Armitage, came upon the largest triceratops horn ever unearthed at the site. When examining the horn under a high-powered microscope back at CSUN, Armitage was fascinated to see the soft tissue. The discovery stunned members of the scientific community because it indicates that dinosaurs roamed the earth only thousands of years in the past rather than going extinct 60 million years ago.”

    The Pacific Justice Institute is suing CSUN for religious discrimination. If Armitage, a published scientist for more 30 years whose micrographs have appeared on the covers of eleven scientific journals, was only making religious claims, that’s one thing, but if his analysis was questioning the science behind evolution, well, that’s what’s science is all about.

    Armitage’s problem is that he is critical of the entire Darwinian paradigm. It’s one thing to question bits and pieces of evolutionary science; it’s another thing to call the entire scheme into question. There are evolutionary scientists who admit that some of evolutionary science is very week, but they remain evolutionists. That’s acceptable to the guild.

    "Diversity" and "intellectual honesty" are apparently good things ...

    ... right up to the point they conflict with the "faith" of the scientific community, which is placed in evolution.

    I think that American science is controlled by the federal government and the Democrat Party. Both evolution and global warming are really just government lies.

    If Dinosaurs lived millions of years ago and before man ever entered the picture (according to Darwin) then why do we have drawings of them by man before man discovered dinosaur fossils?

    A couple of things:

    1. The discovery of soft tissue on the fossil may or may not indicate that dinosaurs roamed the earth only thousands of years ago.

    2. Who were the members of the scientific community that were stunned by the discovery?

    3. It's a shame they fired this guy.

    Seems to me there's lots of evidence that points to them living recently and only theories that tell us they lived only 65 million years ago and beyond.

    Here's a local news story on this: http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2014...-discovery-of-soft-tissue-on-dinosaur-fossil/

    If these claims are true than the professor certainly has a case. There's quite a movement growing in the academy right now that is pushing back against this kind of discrimination. For too long there has been a growing political and humanist leadership that is attempting to seal off any dissent of their positions. There is also a group in Christian fundamentalists who this, but it is in the opposite direction.

    The point of the academy is the open exchange of free thought and testing of ideas. We're losing this in the West and it will, ultimately, destroy us.

    I'll be sure to be following this case.
