Are there really threats to academic freedom in America? On this episode of ID the Future we’re featuring an excerpt from a talk given by Casey Luskin at the 2010 Academic Freedom Day celebration at the University of Arkansas. In this third clip, Luskin explains that the persecution stories in the movie Expelled were just the tip of the iceberg. He gives additional examples of pro-ID students, scientists, and faculty who have experienced persecution due to their support for intelligent design. Listen in as Luskin explains why many critics don’t believe in academic freedom in America.
