“The biggest reason is jobs. There really are zero creationist jobs. The biotech industry is an important part of our economy and Louisiana students can’t afford to be shut out of it. Even if we’re not going into the biotech industry, the law still hurts us. Any science company is going to have trouble trusting a Louisiana student’s education because our state has an anti science reputation based on this law. No college wants to accept students who think creationism is science whether it is a college like Harvard or a state school like LSU (Kevin Carmen’s testimony at BESE is evidence of this), and it is making it harder for Louisiana students to be successful.”
My first multiuser computing experience was on a VAX back in 1993. Interesting times were had, especially when I ran some code that exposed a bug in VMS and got labeled as a hacker, even though all I’d done was FTP a copy of zmodem to the VAX in ASCII mode. Somewhere, there’s a security advisory for VMS because of my idiocy.
