On Monday in the David Coppedge v. Jet Propulsion Lab trial, Jhertaune Huntley finished her testimony. She was the Human Resources (HR) employee at NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL) who conducted the investigation of Mr. Coppedge's alleged "harassment" of other employees.
In Ms. Huntley's testimony, we see someone who on the one hand completely failed to investigate David Coppedge's complaints that his civil rights were being violated, and on the other hand completely accepted - with virtually no critical inquiry - the complaints of others against him, rarely (if ever) bothering to check those accusations to make sure they were true.
Trial begins this week in a lawsuit over whether NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL) unlawfully discriminated against an employee for discussing the scientific theory of intelligent design (ID) at work, according to the Discovery Institute. The jury trial is set to begin Wednesday, March 7.
David Coppedge, a 14-year JPL veteran and team lead computer administrator on the Cassini Mission to Saturn, was reprimanded and demoted after lending ID-related DVDs to coworkers, By contrast, anti-ID workers at JPL faced no similar restrictions on expressing their views. After Coppedge filed suit to protect his free expression rights, JPL terminated him.
Tuesday, March 6th, at 6:30 p.m., the Lutheran Student Fellowship of the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee hosts a debate between two college professors on opposing ends of the origins spectrum, Intelligent Design and Darwinism.
Dr. William Bristow, Professor of Philosophy at UWM will debate Dr. Angus Mengue, Professor of Philosophy, from Concordia University.
Growing voices in the media and elsewhere claim it is "anti-science" to question the "scientific consensus" on such varied issues as climate change, embryonic stem-cell research, and Darwin's theory of evolution. But is challenging "consensus" science really anti-science? And is it good public policy for public officials to ignore dissenting voices in the scientific community? A talk and conversation with Dr. Stephen C. Meyer.

Evolution has become a favorite topic of the news media recently, but for some reason, they never seem to get the story straight. The staff at Discovery Institute's Center for Science and Culture started this Blog to set the record straight and make sure you knew "the rest of the story".
A blogger from New England offers his intelligent reasoning.
We are a group of individuals, coming from diverse backgrounds and not speaking for any organization, who have found common ground around teleological concepts, including intelligent design. We think these concepts have real potential to generate insights about our reality that are being drowned out by political advocacy from both sides. We hope this blog will provide a small voice that helps rectify this situation.
