Media watch: New York Times profiles/targets young earth creationist who received geology PhD
Marcus Ross, a young earth creationist who seems to be a sharp geologist, received his PhD in the same - and Cornelia Dean of the New York Times has gone to considerable lengths to try to dig up dirt about him, without success. Apparently, many people were surprised that all he had to do was complete the requirements for his PhD, not profess a materialist creed. I wonder when the witch hunt will start in earnest? Ross tells me he is no longer a member of the American Scientific Affiliation, a group of about 2000 allegedly Christian US scientists that sponsors a list on which he is attacked here.
