We mostly know The College Fix as one of those intellectual freedom groups who help profs and students who have been out-windowed or smashed in some way by the raging Woke. Well, Gelernter still teaches at Yale and if the Unabomber didn’t stop him, maybe Darwin’s mob won’t either. Despite the fact that he hasthis to say about them:
Gelernter said an ideological bent has taken over the field of science. There are good scientists doing good work, “but we have a cautionary tale in what happened to our English departments and our history departments could happen to us, God forbid,” he said.
Gelernter said he likes many of his colleagues at Yale, that they are his friends, but when he looks at “their intellectual behavior, what they have published — and much more importantly what they tell their students — Darwinism has indeed passed beyond a scientific argument as far as they are concerned. You take your life in your hands to challenge it intellectually. They will destroy you if you challenge it.”
“Now, I haven’t been destroyed, I am not a biologist, and I don’t claim to be an authority on this topic,” Gelernter added, “but what I have seen in their behavior intellectually and at colleges across the West is nothing approaching free speech on this topic. It’s a bitter, fundamental, angry, outraged rejection [of intelligent design], which comes nowhere near scientific or intellectual discussion. I’ve seen that happen again and again.”
Gelernter acknowledges “I am attacking their religion and I don’t blame them for being all head up, it is a big issue for them.”Jennifer Kabbany, “Famed Yale computer science professor quits believing Darwin’s theories” at The College Fix
It’s almost as though people are “getting it” that Darwinism now functions as an intolerant secular religion. Evolution rolls on oblivious but, here and there, heads are getting cracked over the differences between what really happens and what Darwinians insist must happen.
It’s also an odd feeling when people like Gelernter are actually listened to. It’s almost as if there are intelligent people out there, not just groupies and trolls.
