Slaughter of the Dissidents - Dr. Jerry Bergman

Speaker: Dr. Jerry Bergman
Talk: Slaughter of the Dissidents
June 11th, 2010

Rocky Mountain Creation Fellowship was privileged to have as our June 2010 speaker Dr. Jerry Bergman. Dr. Bergman is a graduate of the Medical College of Ohio, Wayne State University, The University of Toledo, and Bowling Green State University. Dr. Bergman has also completed 40 graduate hours in the department of chemistry at Miami University in Oxford Ohio, and has studied geology, philosophy, nutrition, and chemistry at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. So far he has earned 9 degrees!

The title of his presentation is "Slaughter of the Dissidents," which is the title of one of his recnt books. In the book, Dr. Bergman exposes viewpoint discrimination, which is directed at those in academia who are Darwin Doubters or Darwin Skeptics. Several case studies are offered which document the stories of victims, who are routinely denied the treatment and benefits afforded to their colleagues; educators are denied tenure, students are denied degrees, and scientists are denied the opportunity to conduct scientific experiments or publish their findings in many mainline peer reviewed science journals. Many other tactics are also employed to ensure that the credibility, careers, and influence of these people is thoroughly destroyed.

Dr. Bergman has taught biology, genetics, chemistry, biochemistry, anthropology, geology, and microbiology at the college level for over 35 years. He has over 800 publications in 12 languages, mostly in science, 22 books and monographs, and over 100 scientific papers presented at professional and community meetings in the United States, Canada, and Europe. Among his books is a Fastback on the creation-evolution controversy published by Phi Delta Kappa, a college textbook on measurement and evaluation, and he has contributed to dozens of other textbooks.
