Here’s a novel idea for creationists: Be honest!
As you know, the Institute for Creation Research is trying to get an online Masters Degree in “science education” approved in Texas. A faux committee comprised of nincompoops and creationists has approved the degree at the first stage, and it is now being considered by the Texas higher education commission. (Details here)
A recent report indicates that the Texas Commissioner of Higher Education has chimed in on the suggestion that this degree simply be called a “degree in creation studies.” Interesting solution.
Apparently, one of the sticking points for approval of this degree is that the program would only be open to a certain class of students, which may create problems at the level of government approval.
The program is open only to students who believe that God created the universe in six days and that those who deny Jesus Christ face eternal damnation, …. Adultery, homosexuality and fornication are banned.
Can you do that with an online degree? Really?
