He polled his audience at the San Antonio Convention Center, starting by asking how many considered themselves politically liberal. A sea of hands appeared, and Dr. Haidt estimated that liberals made up 80 percent of the 1,000 psychologists in the ballroom. When he asked for centrists and libertarians, he spotted fewer than three dozen hands. And then, when he asked for conservatives, he counted a grand total of three. This is a statistically impossible lack of diversity, Dr. Haidt concluded, noting polls showing that 40 percent of Americans are conservative and 20 percent are liberal. He "concluded, but presents no evidence. In fact, check out this one student who is basically saying, "They would laugh at my conclusions so why try?": I avoid the topic of politics around work, one student wrote. Given what Ive read of the literature, I am certain any research I conducted in political psychology would provide contrary findings and, therefore, go unpublished. Although I think I could make a substantial contribution to the knowledge base, and would be excited to do so, I will not. ----------------------------------- Intercollegiate Studies Institute I was checking out what science conservative schools teach. Now come on people. How can you insist that there must be more than 6% of scientists who are Republican when you attend such, I hate to use the word, "schools"? If you want a real hoot, check out, "Liberty". Creation Studies - Official Page - Liberty University The Creation Studies minor The minor in creation studies provides a flexible program with a broad training in scientific disciplines that relate to origins as well as the Bible. Students in science or non-science majors can benefit from the in depth study of creation and evolution. The Creation Studies Minor is 20 hours and classes include CRST 290 and 390, as well as BIBL 410. The student will be able to: Demonstrate a consistent, biblical worldview regarding origins Explain key scientific evidences and arguments used to support the theory of evolution as well as difficulties with the theory Provide scientific and biblical arguments in support of creation. PURPOSE The purpose of the Center for Creation Studies is to promote the development of a consistent biblical view of origins in our students. The Center seeks to equip students to defend their faith in the creation account in Genesis using science, reason, and the Scriptures. ------------------------------------- At some point, the "anti science" and "war on reason" nonsense has to stop. It's too damaging to the country.
