UC Berkeley Makes War On Religious Zealots

This article is so beautiful I want to cry. As a card-carrying, lifetime member of the University of California Berkeley Alumni Association, I may have never been so proud of my school.

UC Berkeley has decided that you actually have to meet certain criteria to enter our hallowed institution and some schools seem to object. Please, read the article at http://tinyurl.com/c43tt for the full details. (Berkeley has always had criteria, but they, as one of the best schools in the world actually enforce them.)

Berkeley objected to a science book that said: “The people who have prepared this book have tried consistently to put the Word of God first and science second. If at any point God’s Word is not put first, the author apologizes.”

Thank God* the UC Berkeley Bears have standards and are willing to stand up for what they require as a proper education. This isn’t a discrimination issue. Berkeley has a hard science requirement and there’s no reason a student can’t take a qualifying class at another school. All schools have any number of requirements for admission, and you must meet them all.

*That is so ironic I can’t stand it.
