FFRF writes to Ball State about creationist "astronomy" course

Jerry Coyne posted the letter and some commentary on his Why Evolution is True blog:

http://whyevolutionistrue.wordpress.com/2013/05/16/the-freedom-from-religion-foundation-to-ball-state-university-cease-and-desist-your-religious-indoctrination/

I doubt a lawsuit will have legs, but I'm glad to see them taking action on a phony professor who does a bait-and-switch number on students who register for a science course and get a religion course.

Thank you, FFRF and Jerry Coyne!

Given that this is a university and that those courses are voluntary the only problem I see is that the course itself is misrepresented as and astronomy course.

It is actually nothing more than ID proponents trying to force feed their nonsensical faith based doctrines on the rest of society.

If he insists on teaching intelligent design then maybe he should consider teaching at a Christian university. Where that garbage is believed and promoted.

He used to teach at the fundy college a few miles from here.

Absolutely -- I hope he gets set to a Christian University where these opinions will slowly die.
