Bryan College dropping support for Center for Origins Research

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.

One thought on “Bryan College dropping support for Center for Origins Research

  1. Wood often criticises many creationists and concedes that a good case can be made for evolution. This, I think, is where Matzke and others get the idea that he will soon change his mind. However, his justification for young earth creationism appears to come from scripture, not science, so I doubt he’s changing anything.
