Mirecki Treated after Roadside Beating
Kansas University professor Paul Mirecki reported that he was beaten up by two guys who made reference to Mirecki's controversial statements. Among those statements are that he planned to teach intelligent design as mythology in an upcoming course. He wrote it would be a “nice slap” in the “big fat face” of fundamentalists.
I hate to speculate like this, but conservative activist John Altevogt has accused Mirecki of making the whole thing up, and, frankly, the details are so sketchy that that seems entirely possible.
The Onion is, of course, on the case.
