how to post a question???
Just a year ago, after the Supreme Court rejected a challenge to the University of Texas at Austin’s admissions program by a single swing vote, the question seemed to be edging, at last, toward an answer: Colleges could, the justices ruled, consider race when deciding whom to let through their gates. “I thought this was settled,” said Anthony P. Carnevale, an economist at Georgetown University who studies affirmative action. “I thought it was done.” Only for the moment. A series of lawsuits and complaints have continued to challenge such practices, and last week, President Trump’s Justice Department joined the chorus, signaling that it would marshal lawyers to investigate and perhaps sue colleges over “intentional race-based discrimination” in admissions.

Wayne Friar, Ph.D., AIIA's Resource Associate for Science and Origins, says this: Polls have shown that about 40% of scientists acknowledge a supernatural power. But the majority of the scientific community, especially evolutionary leaders today, hold an atheistic worldview. As support for their anti-supernatural worldviews, these scientists need mechanisms for the origin of life, especially humans. Atheism needs evolution to escape from any implications regarding a creator. If one starts with Darwinism, certainly it is easy to escape from any obligation to God. Those opposed to their reasoning are branded as obscurantists who are trying to intrude religion into science.
