Institution for Creation Research Defeated in Court

-


The Institute for Creation Research suffered a significant legal defeat in its lawsuit over the Texas Higher Education Coordination Board's 2008 decision to deny the ICR's request for a state certificate of authority to offer a MASTERS DEGREE IN SCIENCE EDUCATION from its graduate school.

A June 18, 2010, ruling in the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas found (PDF, p. 38) that "ICRGS [the Institute for Creation Research Graduate School] has not put forth evidence sufficient to raise a genuine issue of material fact with respect to any claim it brings. Thus, Defendants are entitled to summary judgment on the totality of ICRGS's claims against them in this lawsuit."

As NCSE's Glenn Branch explained in Reports of the NCSE, "When the Institute for Creation Research moved its headquarters from Santee, California, to Dallas, Tex

    • DUDE hold on, hold on, you have to look at this with different eyes.

      if the ICR had been allowed to accredit for courses that had no basis in fact... WE COULD HAVE ALL BEEN DOCTORS.

    • im not even sure its that.

      from what ive seen and read (not alot) I.D. is little more then endless paragraph after paragraph of "hole poking" with a "god dunnit" qualifier at the end of each.

      have you seen that "frontline" doc. "the dover case"? if not, you GOTTA check it out. its good stuff.

  • Texas has to be the biggest state of religious freaks.... not surprised over any news like this swinging either way in that state.

    • Is that why the Texas school board has tried to put ID back in science and people like Don McLeroy openly admits he was trying to put a more conservative lean in schools?

    • I don't think I have ever been "proven" ignorant on this site... ever. And if I made a mistake I will admit it.

      But yeah, you're wrong... you're just biased because you're from Texas!

      I wasn't hating on Texas by the way, I think you got me wrong buddy... I was just saying that lots of politics in Texas are determined or swayed via the words in the bible. Most other states laugh at shit like this.... like I said you got me wrong.
