Skeptic Tank!

From: James J. Lippard To: All Dec-16-93 11:59AM Subject: More on Kenyon/SFSU Organization: University of Arizona From: (James J. Lippard) Message-ID: <> Newsgroups:,sci.skeptic After collecting additional information, I have shed my skepticism about whether or not the biology department did the right thing in removing Kenyon from the intro biology classes he was teaching. It is apparent that he was teaching demonstrable falsehoods and nonsense, which is a question of competence, not academic freedom. Specifically, he was giving standard bogus young-earth arguments--the earth's magnetic field decay, moon dust, and even speed of light decay. Further, he has used his classroom as a pulpit from which to argue against the "morality of abortion."
