“The other pillar is time because you cannot get a man from a frog unless the princess kissed the frog. So in science you have to have deep time to get evolution.” Subsequent to the controversy, Armitage has been on additional digs and found more soft tissue but is finding it difficult to get published.
The Bio Logos Foundation has published a popular-level article by old-earth geologists Gregg Davidson and Ken Wolgemuth presenting arguments for an old earth.
Now California State University at Northridge has paid Armitage a six-figure sum to settle his wrongful termination suit based on religious discrimination.
While the university admits no wrongdoing, Armitage’s attorney said they feared losing a protracted lawsuit because of a “smoking gun” email that backed the plaintiff’s case.
(Schweitzer subsequently postulated that iron is responsible for preserving the soft tissue.) Armitage’s February 2013 study was published in the peer-reviewed , a journal of cell and tissue research. A biology professor had come into his office and said, “We are not going to tolerate your religion in this department.” Armitage fought back.
“Evolution is structure supported by two pillars: one is chance, and the other is time.
Chance is required because we obviously can’t say that a thinking force created life on earth. If you kick out one of those two pillars the whole structure collapses,” Armitage noted.
Alan Reinach, Armitage’s attorney, hailed the settlement as precedent-setting.
“We are not aware of any other cases where a creationist received a favorable outcome,” said Reinach, executive director of the Church State Council, a nonprofit California public interest legal organization.
