Now California State University at Northridge has paid Armitage a six-figure sum to settle his wrongful termination suit based on religious discrimination.
While the university admits no wrongdoing, Armitage’s attorney said they feared losing a protracted lawsuit because of a “smoking gun” email that backed the plaintiff’s case.
His findings seconded groundbreaking discoveries by noted molecular paleontologist Mary Schweitzer, who triggered an earthquake in the world of paleontology when she published about soft tissue in dinosaur bones in 2005.
(Schweitzer subsequently postulated that iron is responsible for preserving the soft tissue.) Armitage’s February 2013 study was published in the peer-reviewed , a journal of cell and tissue research. A biology professor had come into his office and said, “We are not going to tolerate your religion in this department.” Armitage fought back.
“The other pillar is time because you cannot get a man from a frog unless the princess kissed the frog. So in science you have to have deep time to get evolution.” Subsequent to the controversy, Armitage has been on additional digs and found more soft tissue but is finding it difficult to get published.
Kenneth Alfred Ham (born 20 October 1951) is an Australian Christian fundamentalist and young Earth creationist living in the United States.
Then, two weeks after publishing his findings, he was fired.The case of Armitage is the latest to show the mounting hostility Christians face in academics and other public arenas.“Soft tissue in dinosaur bones destroys ‘deep time.’ Dinosaur bones cannot be old if they’re full of soft tissue,” Armitage said in a You Tube video. If you don’t have deep time, you don’t have evolution.According to Ham, he was inspired by his father, also a young Earth creationist, to interpret the Book of Genesis as "literal history" and first rejected what he termed "molecules-to-man evolution" during high school.In 1977, Ham began teaching at a high school in Brisbane where he met John Mackay, another teacher who believed in young Earth creationism.
The whole discussion of evolution ends if you show that the earth is young.
