03:19 pm - Creationist Doctor
This increases neither my respect for the seriously religious nor pre-med students. Investigations over whether the professor has to give a recommendation -- I can only imagine. I think the proper response of the professor, if the university had not taken the proper position, is to write the recommendation. With a lawyer checking it, of course, for libel. The next obvious suit -- that it wasn't 100% positive -- should be laughed out of any court.
It says something about the nature of the school (beyond just being in Texas?), that a professor even has to have an explicit policy about such things. I think he makes a reasonable case, and would support a similar policy for spiritual advisors.

I have never understood why "God made the big bang and science took it from there" was not good enough for religious folks.

And for many, I believe it is. But a creationist is a rare breed, who doesn't like the loss of control imposed on the "God as initial impetus" story. These are the same people who believe what is written in their holy texts as fact. The attempt at compromising from the absolute stance (of the earth created 6K years ago) is the "Intelligent Designer" -- God still has power and plans. I am personally fine with "God as the initial wavefunction" (although it doesn't do much for me) -- but who needs that God?
