A California university says it is investigating religious discrimination allegations made by a prominent scientist and former employee who claims he was fired for his creationist beliefs.
Mark Armitage, a scientist and evangelical Christian, claims he was fired from his job as a lab technician at California State University at Northridge because he published an academic paper which appeared to support his creationist views, according to a lawsuit filed last week.
Armitage, who does not believe in evolution, was lauded by his colleagues and the science community after he discovered in 2012 the largest triceratops horn ever recovered from the world-famous Hell Creek Formation in Glendive, Mont.
Upon further examination of the fossils under a high-powered microscope, Armitage made a stunning findsoft tissue inside the triceratops horn with bone cells, or osteocytes, that looked alive.

“Evolution” is a CAREFULLY PROTECTED “State” Religion.
Honestly, about a decade ago when I ‘worked in those circles,’ there are a lot of scientists out there who believe in some form of creation and higher being.
It always surprised me how many of them would just keep their mouth’s shut, when challenged by the government lackey/monitors. But quietly over a few beers they’d loosen up and discuss creationism in the context of the Grand Design...and the ‘stuff’ that holds it all together...
“We are not going to tolerate your religion in this department!!”
Wow! That’s all one can say. We all know this is what goes on, but it’s just so striking to see it like this. The implications are huge. We need more Christian, conservative, cultural remnants in academia.
Now we know how Copernicus felt when advanced the Heliocentric (sun is in the middle not the earth) Theory and challenged the Ptolemic concept of the earth being in the middle. The Evolutions really don’t understand that they worship a religion based on faulted thereoms and a pig’s tooth that some attorney’s submitted into evidence at the Scope’s trial as evidence of a missing link. I do believe in Adaption but not a change in kind which would have to be the case or evolution to occur.

The Evolutionists really dont understand that they worship a religion based on faulted thereoms and a pigs tooth that some attorneys submitted into evidence at the Scopes trial as evidence of a missing link. I do believe in Adaption but not a change in kind which would have to be the case or evolution to occur and that’s not the case. If you have any degree of common sense and study DNA you will find it is a highly sophisticated and orderly system with distinct signatures and patterns that is very indicative of an intelligent Creator.
OK so if this guy has been working in the field for some time then this wasn’t his first rodeo. He’s had to have found fossils before and examined them. So if it wasn’t until two years ago that he found a fossil with what he claimed was soft tissue cells and which he claimed meant that it was only 4000 years old then what did he believe before? Or has he been checking off dinosaur fossils for years and saying, “Yep, 4000 years old...3800 years old...2600 years old...”
Apparently so is geology.
Such allegations have nothing to do with this.
Science is supposed to be a search for the truth, no matter where that truth takes us. Evolutionists must have long ages for the billions of mutations which must have occurred for their theory to be true. Finding soft tissue in 65 million year old fossils should at least cause them to rethink their position and say, “Wait a minute. Survival of soft tissue for millions of years don’t pass the smell test.” But no, their reaction is “Well, obviously, sometimes soft tissue can survive for 65 million years.” This proves, of course, that they’re not scientists, but dogmatic priests of their pagan religion.
