Putting NASA in its Place

"It is not NASA's place, nor should it be to make a declaration such as this about the existence of the universe that discounts intelligent design by a creator ... [emphasis added, RSR]

"This is more than a science issue, it is a religious issue. And I would hate to think that young people would only be getting one-half of this debate from NASA. That would mean we had failed to properly educate the very people who rely on us for factual information the most."

The immortal words of George C. Deutsch, the once and former public information officer at NASA, who attempted to control public statements by NASA scientists. His qualifications for the job? He was a Bush campaign worker. He also claimed to have a degree from Texas A&M.

But, like so many other ID activists, it turns out he is a liar. He never graduated.

Now, he's resigned, perhaps to become another victim to be placed in the Discovery book of martyrs. The would be censor who had to resign because he wouldn't tell the truth about his degree (and couldn't tell truth from a turnip.)

The story first broke, here.
