Bryan College has decided to stop funding the ‘Center for Origins Research’, which is not a good thing for creationist research.
Todd Wood himself, describes his job as:
I have long known that CORE is a luxury for a small, Christian college. In fact, every time I described my job, people were always shocked to hear that an undergraduate institution like Bryan employed faculty to do research (my teaching load is a quarter of a standard teaching load). I also long feared that financial hardship would spell the end of CORE, since luxuries are always the first to be cut from a budget.
Bryan College will support CORE until end June, and I sinserely hope that Todd Wood, his wife, and Roger Sanders find another way to secure funding for CORE or to obtain other jobs.
Although I not always agree with Todd Wood, he is one of few people who try to justify a creationist model by reason and science. That’s to be applauded.
Without Todd and others, creation biology wouldn’t be what it is today, and I hope that he will find a way to continu his research.
At the Panda’s Thumb Nick Matzke (who makes his career by dismissing creationism and ID ) also provides some commentary.
If you have any thoughts about this, please let me know in the comments.
