When the leading creationist research think tank, the Institute for Creation Research (ICR), moved to Texas earlier this year, you might have expected a warm welcome in the Bible Belt. Unfortunately, Texas’s welcome wagon was not so warm. State educational officials rejected ICR’s initial request to offer master’s degrees in science education. ICR is now petitioning the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.
Over 15 years ago, ICR had to go to federal court before it gained approval from California’s education department to operate a graduate school and to issue master’s degrees. History seems to be repeating itself.
