I recently send the following email to Professor Dini of Texas Tech:
I recently read an article ( http://www.msnbc.com/news/866452.asp?cp1=1 ) about the outrageous legal complaint Mr. Spradling has filed against you and Texas Tech University regarding your policy on letters of recommendation.
I have read your policy ( http://www2.tltc.ttu.edu/dini/Personal/letters.htm ) and applaud you for your stance regarding evolution, science and the medical field. It scares me that there are doctors and medical students out there who don't believe in Evolution. If they can't grasp this scientific fact and it's relation to medicine, then I would fear entrusting my health to them.
However, I am happy to hear that rationalists like you are out there. You are "fighting the good fight", so to speak.
Other articles can be found here.
It boggles my mind that there are Doctors who don't believe in evolution. Boggles my mind and scares the shit out of me. Shouldn't a doctor BE part scientist? Shouldn't all scientists understand Evolution?
Maybe it's because I'm an Atheist, but I guess I just don't see why Creationists have to be anti-Evolution. (In other words, why not consider that their god had a hand in evolution?) Do they take every aspect of the Bible literally? I doubt it. So why is this different? Some sense of holier-than-thou superiority over other animals that must be maintained?
Any one interested in sending a similar message of support, email me and I will give you his address. I'm not gonna post it here for fear of spambots... and he has enough trouble with mindless attacks. ;)
