Well, I guess I'll keep my witnessing to a minimum here.

I don't think the ACLU can prevent someone from having an academic opinion or publishing papers supporting ID or creationism. There are plenty of academics with non-mainstream ideas in American universities.

The ACLU is merely against teaching creationism in public schools as it isn't the consensus among biologists. Why should creationism be given preferential treatment over other non-mainstream ideas such as cold fusion? Very few biologists are creationists just as very few physicists believe in cold fusion. If religion is the only reason then the case can be made that by teaching creationism the government is supporting the establishment of religion.


In a few particular cases, people have lost their jobs who allowed nonnaturalistic papers to be published. Not just the ACLU though. As for public schools it is not just creationism that is banned, but ID which would question neodarwinism.

Witnessing online is probably the most lazy way to "witness" to someone. Apparently you don't put a lot of effort into this. :lol:

Also you get to have cool down time after being insulted repeatedly, whereas in person there is no cool down time.
