I'm always on the lookout for breaches of ethics... and I do believe I've found one today.
Check this out: The San Francisco Chronicle quotes the introduction to Biology for Christian Schools, "
For that cited sentence alone, UC has no choice but to reject all applicants to their biology curriculum who have been taught from this book as a primary source. Science textbooks, by the ethics of science, must have the interests of science as their foremost concern. Anything less, and it is no longer a science book; and by extension its students are no longer scientists.
Answers in Genesis omits that key phrase, clearly showing their ethical priorities.
Since UC lies under the Ninth Circuit, I expect the yokels to lose their case. Unfortunately that is likely the plaintiffs' goal; to chalk up another martyrdom to them damn seckoolar hyoomanist lib'ruls and to scare up the bubba vote next year. May the gods save us if this goes before a Scalia-dominated court.
Here's hoping their ploy doesn't work.
