IMO, there are prima facie reasons to think that the Univ of Idaho issued
this statement at this point in time precisely b/c they want to discredit
Minnich before he testifies in Harrisburg. The combination of the content
of the statement--which appears to be a clear violation of Minnich's
academic freedom--and the timing, suggest this as the obvious
interpretation. Releasing such a statement precisely now, however,
certainly appears to be politically motivated. Do you not agree?

The facts behind this are not clear yet. At this point, however, I'd say
that this appears to be part of a smear campaign. If it happened to me, I'd
sue the university.

Saying that it's ok for faculty in many other disciplines to talk about ID,
but not for faculty in the sciences to do so, is simply outrageous and
unjustifiable. Do you not agree?
