Spying on Professors Here!

Did anyone else notice the creepy letter to the editor in Sunday's paper. Some person wrote complaining about a textbook used in a biology class.

Who is this author? Is she a student in the class? Is she some sort of Christianist provocateur that cruses bookstores looking to attack professors? Is the professor giving her a bad grade because she refuses to accept the very premise of modern biology and medicine?

It is a very specific attack, even giving the publication date of the book.

Regardless of the idiocy of the claims about evolution, I wonder if we are now going to see the public "outing" of professors who disagree with Christianists on the pages of the local newspaper.

Fifth Letter Down: Biology textbook promotes atheism

She's not in the student directory, so I'm going to go with "Christianist provocateur."

Try this:

"Dr. Sandra Gade, a retired professor
of physics, is a member at
Bethlehem, Oshkosh, Wisconsin."

"The miracles of our time"
"God has been using molecular scientists to uncover a level of complexity in cellular systems that is so stunning it shouts out in testimony to a supernatural creation."

Author: Sandra Gade

Sandra taught physics for 33 years at UW Oshkosh. She delivered a graduation commencement address here in the late 1990s as I recall. --Tony P.

Wow! I guess she must have taught here before physicists came to the realization that the earth was more than 6000 years old.

Do you think her next letter will be about the foolish, faddish idea started by Copernicus and Galileo that the earth goes around the sun?
