Did anyone get a chance to listen to Dr. Phil Johnson on Dr. James
Dobson's Focus on the Family radio show today? They basically trashed
Darwinistic Evolution during the beginning of the show and moved into
trashing Theistic Evolution and anything else that included evolutionary
theory. By the end of the show they were accusing Christians that work
in scientific academia as selling out to naturalism in order to further
their own professional goals. At one point Phil said that the reason
Christian higher education does not take a hard stance against
evolutionary theory is beause the parents of the students that attend
these schools want their kids to go on to ivy league schools and
therefor must be educated in the secular theory of evolution in order
for this to happen. They then went on to congratulate each other on
their recent publications.

So there you have it folks. Its the parent's fault that Christian
higher education is a selling out by teaching evolutionary theory.
