Caroline Crocker is presently employed as President of the American Institute for Technology and Science Education (AITSE), an organization with the goal of increasing scientific integrity by offering clear, reliable, and balanced education. Dr. Crocker taught various biology courses for five years at George Mason University (GMU) and Northern Virginia Community College. While at GMU, she won three grants, including one from the Center for Teaching Excellence, received commendations for high student ratings and wrote a cell biology workbook. Dr. Crocker did her post-doctoral studies in fluorescence resonance energy transfer analysis of interactions between proteins of the T-cell receptor/NF-κB signal transduction pathway at the Uniformed Services University. While working on a Ph.D. in immunopharmacology (The Modulation of Phosphodiesterase Activity in Human T-Lymphocytes) as an external student at Southampton University, U.K., she was employed at Creighton University as a research associate, bringing in numerous grants, conducting basic immunology research, and publishing extensively. She received an M.Sc. from Birmingham University, a B.Sc. from Warwick University, and an A.A. from Des Moines Area Community College, having graduated from high school at the age of 16.

In the first essay she claims that antibody “production requires randomness at multiple levels” and that God may use random processes to create “life over Read More…
