Texas demands faith in Darwinism
The state of Texas has decided that a graduate school with a faculty sporting Ph.Ds from UCLA, Penn State, the University of Montana, Colorado State, Case Western and Indiana University, with a few lowly Ed.D. degrees thrown it, isn't qualified to grant master's degrees because it teaches students to evaluate thoroughly the pluses – and minuses – of evolution and creation.

The verdict came just a week ago from the Texas Higher Education Consulting Board, which rejected an application from the Institute for Creation Research Graduate School for a Certificate of Authority to grant degrees.

In a case that appears to be an example of the academic censoring described in Ben Stein's movie "Expelled," state officials even read into the record for the agency's hearing a state statute regarding "fraudulent" education programs without giving supporters of the ICR program an opportunity to explain or ...

I'm not so sure. TRACS accepted ICR's letter of membership withdrawal and their accredited status was terminated. So under CA law, ICRGS has no accreditation from a recognized accrediting association.

We'll see, I suppose.

So Texas is demanding faith in Mr. Darwin. Yet more apostacy...and the subsequent judgement to come.

If you follow the link on the article it explains:

"ICR has been issuing master's degrees in California since 1981. In 1990 it overcame a challenge from state educational officials who tried to deny the school the opportunity to offer degrees.

"ICR eventually won approval in a federal court," Answers in Genesis said. "Due to its recent move to Texas, ICR had to apply to the THECB for similar authorization … and once again found itself running another educational gauntlet."

Jim, their contact info implies that only the Museum is in CA now. So if they had no accreditation problems in CA (about which I thought there was controversy not long ago), then I ask again, why the move to TX?

Neil, I think they are still based in California, and seem to have no trouble with that state's accreditation agency.
Institute for Creation Research Graduate School wrote:
For the past 27 years, qualified applicants have completed the M.S. degree through ICRGS, some going on to enter doctoral programs in the sciences at various universities throughout the U.S., while many have obtained their degree to assist them in the teaching of science in secondary and post-secondary schools, many of whom have had as their primary career emphasis the teaching of science in the Christian school environments.
from, Academic Freedom in the Balance

Apparently, in many cases they have been able to survive in the secular environment.

While Dan, is perhaps a little more politcally active than I am, he makes some good points in, Separation of Church and State

I don't know why ICR moved to Texas in the 1st place. Was it to escape CA accreditation reqm'ts? If so, they were deluding themselves.

Creationists must ask themselves if knocking at the door of their avowed enemies is going to get anywhere. Did Paul need permission from Areopagus fogies to preach in the Athens marketplace?

"Texas demands faith in Darwinism"

Texas may demand faith in Darwinism, but God commands repentance. This could be why Texas' judgment flows across the Rio Grande.

"And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men everywhere to repent." Acts 17:30

Move your school to another state. Like Florida.
