Nature: Bioscience Is Thriving in spite of Academic Freedom
Academic freedom has not meant an end for bioscience in Louisiana even though schools allow a critical examination of Darwin. Image courtesy of Wikipedia.
In 2008, Darwinists warned of the dire consequences of allowing Louisiana schools to examine evolution in a more critical way. It would cause high-tech companies to leave the state, they claimed.
They have since repeated the warning a few times, for instance earlier this year when the Tennessee Academic Freedom Law was debated.
Now, however, Nature published an article that states that bioscience is actually thriving in Louisiana.
