See my earlier post if you don’t know who Professor Mirecki is.
Today the AP announces Professor Mirecki’s apology for the offensive terms used in his e-mail. Forgive me for doubting his sincerity, but Dr. Mirecki has already tried to blame the whole embarassing episode on the low moral character of his opponents. I doubt his opinion has changed since then. It’s more likely that the threat of funding cuts to the school brought some institutional pressure to bear. Wouldn’t you love to see those e-mails…
In any case, the course title has been changed and the term “mythology” has been removed.
The course, originally called “Special Topics in Religion: Intelligent Design, Creationisms and other Religious Mythologies,” will instead be called “Intelligent Design and Creationism.”
Hell hath no fury like a materialist scorned. Something tells me this is not the last we’ll see of Professor Mirecki.
