As mentioned in the popular news coverage, NASA public affairs officer George Deutsch sent out a memo insisting that the word "theory" be included with every mention of the Big Bang.
His memo reads:
"The Big Bang is "not proven fact; it is opinion," Mr. Deutsch wrote, adding, "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." "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."
Wow! Read what else Mr. Deutsch has to say here on salon's blogs. So, we have a 24 year old journalism student from Texas A&M censoring NASA scientists. What qualifications does Deutsch have? He appears to have been an intern in the Bush-Cheney reelection campaign.Posted by duver001 at February 6, 2006 11:37 AM | TrackBack
