Scientist fired from University for his “Religion”

A lawsuit has been filed against California State University-Northridge two years after it fired a biologist for finding scientific evidence contradicting evolution. Mark Armitage, biologist, member of several scientific organizations and former teacher at the school discovered soft tissue on a dinosaur bone that disproved the belief that it was millions of years old. Although his findings passed peer review, a supervisor of Armitage said that, “We will not tolerate your religion in this department!” Armitage and was subsequently fired.

We Will Not Tolerate Your Religion!’ School Fires Scientist for Questioning Evolution

By Garrett Haley/Christian News Network

LOS ANGELES – A legal defense organization filed a lawsuit this week against California State University, alleging that the school fired a biologist for discovering scientific evidence that contradicted evolutionary theory.

Mark Armitage was a scientist at California State University—Northridge (CSUN), where he worked as a researcher and supervised the school’s electron microscope laboratory. He was also a member of several scientific organizations, including the Microscopy Society of America, the American Society of Parasitologists, and the Southern California Academy of Sciences.

However, CSUN suddenly terminated Armitage’s employment two years ago after he discovered soft tissue on a Triceratops fossil. Evolutionists at the university were evidently displeased by Armitage’s discovery, since they were convinced that the fossil was tens of millions of years old.

Even though Armitage’s findings were published in a peer-reviewed scientific journal, the university decided to fire him, saying his findings were unacceptable. According to Armitage, his supervisor entered the lab and declared, “We will not tolerate your religion in this department!”

    A bit of clarification here. Mark Armitage is neither a biologist or a scientist. He is an electron microscope technician.

    We doubled checked sources and all indicate that Mark Armitage was the manager for the Electron and Confocal Microscopy Suite  at CSUN biology department.
