"He Does Good Science, Great Science."

"He does good science, great science."

Given the claims of evolutionists today that those who doubt Darwin's claims cannot produce science--let alone "good science, great science," it is safe to assume that the above quote describes an evolutionist--perhaps one on the edge of a major breakthrough in evolutionary thought.

That quote, however, is from Dr. Jon C. Boothroyd, a professor of geological sciences at the University of Rhode Island. The quote is describing the research of Dr. Marcus Ross, a professor at Liberty University who just received his Ph.D. geosciences at Rhode Island. Ross, for those who don't know, is a well-known intelligent design proponent and also a young earth creationist. The full article in today's New York Times can be found here.

I'm happy to hear of Ross's success--both because he is a friend and a great scholar. Others, however, aren't too thrilled (because higher education in the hands of non-Darwinists is just too dangerous). Dr. Eugenie Scott of the National Center for Selling Evolution Science Education (NCSE) claims that people like Ross will "miseducate the public." Dr. Michael Dini of Texas Tech University refuses to write letters of recommendation for graduate programs for any student who doesn't subscribe to Darwinian evolution. These people would like nothing more than for people like Ross to fail miserably.

But such is not the case and a very warm and heartfelt congratulations is in order for Dr. Marcus Ross.
