"the reference to quantum physics in support of free will"

I'm rather skeptical of that myself. But I have to wonder, does she then believe there is no such thing as free will? Has she considered the moral implications of that?

The Temple of Darwinistic Materialism likes the idea of no free will. They prefer to think we are purely stimulus-response vehicles.

Why would she consider moral implications when she, as an Ahiest, denies the existence of absolute good and evil? To Athiests, morality is simply a convenience, an arbitrary set of rules to make society work better, whatever that means.

Quantum Physics has essentially refuted the Newtonian idea "Determinism". The universe is now excepted as "Indeterminate". It has theological and philosophical implications for many people.

...and calls for “academic freedom” (which she says can be translated as “the acceptance of creationism”).

So she's opposed to academic freedom, too, I see.

The thought police are so easy to pick out.

I know I have, but as potentially dismal as it may be, I, unlike some, don’t get to pick and choose what I believe based on feelings and fiction.
