A physics professor whose class considering intelligent design thrust Ball State University into the national spotlight years ago is scheduled to return to his old campus, which had shut down his popular “Boundaries of Science” course.
And Professor Eric Hedin’s topic de jour when he steps foot on his old stomping grounds? Intelligent design.
Hedin is slated to appear at Ball State on Oct. 26 as part of a “God’s Not Dead” nationwide tour of college campuses.
“I see this situation as a testimony to how God has worked things for good, even when it may have seemed like a loss at the time,” Hedin told The College Fix in an email Thursday.
Yes, that’s Eric Hedin, our “Caspian”!
Somebody will need to go sit with Jerry Coyne, who really wanted Hedin Canceled. Psst: The short straw will be the one third from the left when the straws are fanned…

“God’s not dead”
Apparently quite true for some Christians, he’s alive and well and living in Mar-a-Lago.
@Sev please do not make this about liberal politics and Trump hate. Please
“Apparently quite true for some Christians, he’s alive and well and living in Mar-a-Lago.”
False!! Trump does not live in Mar a Lago. Yes he is alive and well living but not in FL. The bad Orangeman that pulled up everyone’s skirts has moved he now is alive and well living in your your head
PS for years the state controlled democratic media said if Trump got elected he would bring the US to the brink of nuclear war and they were right but they were mistaken ( being kind here they actually lied) they got the man who would take us there, his last name starts with a B
Vividbleau: but they were mistaken ( being kind here they actually lied) about who would get us there, his last name starts with a B
I didn’t know Putin was spelled with a B! You learn something every day.
“I didn’t know Putin was spelled with a B! You learn something every day.”
Putin, Putin, Putin . Putins. gas hikes, Putin this Putin that, Russia Russia Russia.
It was Biden that has put the US to the brink by his irresponsible comment about the regime change. It is Biden that is sending billions upon billions to the Ukraine. Instead of sending all that military hardware from our stockpiles he should have begged the Taliban like he begged the Saudis to send them the untold billions of state of the art equipment Joe Biden left there
We have no business being in the Ukraine. We would not be discussing the possible use of Nukes if Biden had not gotten so he avidly involved. Of course it’s not like the Biden family did any business there right?Its not like Zelensky would have more dirt on the Biden family than one can imagine. It’s not like Russia observed the Biden Adm and perceive pitiful weakness and cognitive decline. Oh no it can’t be those things. Doncha know it’s Putin Putin Putin Russia Russia Russia
JVL Taiwan is next on the chopping block. The US cannot win a war with China. The troops are fantastic but those who lead them are incompetent, more worried about white rage than how to win a war. My goodness we could not beat the Taliban and no one was held accountable for the disastrous withdrawal. China must be salivating and praying “ Oh God please keep Milly and Austin the leaders of the US military” On the other hand maybe they sold the rights to Taiwan to China in exchange for the millions of dollars that went into their pockets

Perhaps you’d feel differently if you were closer to the battlefield. It’s easy for you to sit on the other side of the world and say: we shouldn’t be dealing with this, it’s not our problem. The US tried that kind of isolationist thinking during The Great War (WWI) and eventually they joined the allies. The US tried that kind of thinking again in 1939, they mostly sat on their hands until one of the belligerents figured they wouldn’t lift a finger ’cause clearly Americans didn’t really want to get dirty. Korea . . . that was the UN really but the US decided to get involved and then made the whole conflict about them.
Perhaps you’d feel differently if Russia wasn’t threatening to overrun a few countries closer to yours unless someone does something? And, you know what? IF you get your way and the US leaves the field of battle the rest of Europe will keep fighting because our lives and countries and cultures count. So, go on, waltz off home like a prima donna who isn’t the centre of attention. We’ll just keep getting on with things while you continue to tear your politics asunder based on some made up stories and a load of people who think the world revolves around them. See where that gets you.
JVL and Vivid, this exchange is quite off topic. There is much more in it than either of you are bringing up [e.g. much of the war on the E front in WW2 was in and around Ukraine with all that that implies], and it takes away from a serious issue regarding our Caspian. Can you propose a topical incident that would be a focus for a constructive geostrategic discussion, if not a barbed exchange would do little good. KF
Kairosfocus: Can you propose a topical incident that would be a focus for a constructive geostrategic discussion . . .
Gee, the fine tuning of the universe doesn’t often come up in in geostrategic discussions . . . but, I guess, Putin is one of those fine-tuned things.
The college campuses:
JVL, I doubt you remember the geostrategic analysis I shared here in 2016, which, sadly, is just further along. I guess, too, you forgot just who, specifically, spent the past twenty years bleeding only to be handed another Vietnam style mess by the same supercilious leaders who now tell us they can manage Ukraine or the various headlined, “mainstreamed” global challenges of the day, having proved their strategic incompetence by snatching defeat from the jaws of victory and having shown their ill intent by way of playing Reichstag fire incident games. Ah, yes, those silly patriotic rubes of flyover country. Y’know, the ignorant, stupid, insane or wicked fools who cling to God and guns and silly old fashioned notions of morality. There is hell to pay, and the price is growing fast. KF
PS, I actually offered a free shot at providing a focus for a post where we could look at geostrategic issues. Ponder how you responded.

Why don’t you enlighten us?

Strangely, none of which I mentioned. Would you care to respond to what I actually said?

How long have you been predicting this?

Why don’t you propose a focus and we’ll see what happens.
Perhaps you’d like to talk about the Cuban Missile Crisis, it being its 60th anniversary and all. And quite an interesting tale.
Oh yes, the Cuban Missile Crisis. Go right ahead.
Relatd: Go right ahead.
I’d be happy to. Have you got something to say?
Ugh this is exactly why I asked not to go political
AS78, yes and you are right. Hedin has a solid case which they do not want to hear. Unfortunately there is an unacknowledged dirty 4th gen so far low kinetic [cf. Ukraine] civil war in progress in the US, and the associated agit prop, polarisation and lawfare as well as rioting and politics of destroy the man . . . including the sort of slander driven career busting Hedin went through . . . taint everything. Just above JVL refused to acknowledge strategic incompetence, Reichstag fire incident tactics and just who it was spent twenty years bleeding while being targetted by the elites. Where there is now an established pattern of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. Ah yes, the very same ignorant, stupid, insane or wicked flyover country inhabitants who are being blanket smeared as racists and insurrectionists to be swatted at will and grossly over-charged on flimsy excuse. Apparently it has not registered that US military recruitment is running dangerously below norms, because those targetted to be cannon fodder are moving towards fatal disaffection. Message not received. KF
