Evos don’t have a “stranglehold on academia.” Creationist notions are propounded at fundamentalist Bible colleges and at countless other institutions, websites, etc. You are free to donate to a fundamentalist college or other creationist outfit, or to pursue a doctorate in science so as to be able to carry the ball for creationism yourself.
I also find it interesting that even though creationist outfits have the money, they choose not to publish peer-reviewed scholarly journals of their own, even while loudly complaining that the established journals will not accept their works. Are they as much as admitting that they’d lack a rational basis on which to accept or reject an article?
