University Dean Says Creationists Should Not Be Allowed to Graduate

Ever since the theory of evolution was first proposed, there has been a rift between creationists and evolutionists. Perhaps nowhere is that rift wider than in public schools and colleges.
I’ve sat in classrooms where college professors not only taught evolution, but ranted and raved against anyone stupid enough to believe in biblical creation, especially in young-earth creation. Some will tolerate old-earth creationism because it compromises the Bible with evolution, but when it comes to us six 24 hour day 6000 years ago creationists, there is no tolerance whatsoever.
I had a couple of professors at Arizona State University that told me that if I opened my mouth one more time about challenging evolution that they would throw me out of their class and fail me. One prof in particular was livid when he saw my test paper. Across the top of the test paper by my name I wrote:
“Although I do not believe evolution to be scientifically true, I will provide the answers that I know are expected for this test.”
A former colleague of mine told me that he was a geology major at a major state university. The head of the geology department, who also happened to be his advisor, hated young-earth creationists with a passion and often said so in his class lectures.
On more than one occasion, this prof told his students that if he found out that anyone of them were creationists, that he would fail them on the spot.
I could go on and on and on with more examples of the extreme prejudice that much of the academic world has against young-earth biblical creationists. However, I believe that my point will be well made by watching the video below of Professor Lesley A. Northup, Dean of the Honor’s College at Florida International University.
She not only says that anyone believing in creationism should not be allowed to graduate, but she also places all religions, especially Christianity and the Bible as being nothing more than myths….
