Format: Paperback
There is no question that those who doubt Darwinian orthodoxy are subject to personal discrimination in academe. Dissenters from any orthodoxy are rarely treated well, but in the case of those who doubt Darwinian conclusions about the development of life on earth, this discrimination is systematic and comprehensive. In this extended book, the first of a projected 3 volume set, Dr. Bergman highlights how this discrimination occurs, who is behind it, and provides a substantive discussion of the promising careers that were lost to science because of this systematic discrimination.

Of the 3 focal points in this book, the third was the most interesting to me. No matter how promising the career, no matter how impressive the publications, and no matter how significant the research, a failure to abide by Darwinism is a career killer in almost any academic field. Those who defend "evolution" usually claim that their opponents are not "scientists" so perhaps the most important contribution of this book is to show what an outrageous lie that claim is. Not only are the critics of Darwinism scientists, but they are often top flight scientists who make important contributions in the field. Among the hundreds of examples Dr. Bergman provides, the cases of E. Norbert Smith, a pioneer in the development of radio telemetry for zoology, Raymond Damadian, inventor of MRI technology, and Guillermo Gonzalez, a prominent physicist formerly of Iowa State University, all provide sound evidence that subscribing to a belief system is of more importance than scientific accomplishments in today's academic environment. Indeed, the main value of this book is that it demonstrates the most common claim of Darwin defenders (DDs hereafter), namely that no scientists oppose their view, is not a fact.

Take it from world-renowned evolutionary atheist Richard Dawkins: "One thing all real scientists agree upon is the fact of evolution itself," he wrote in the November 2005 issue of Natural History. "It is a fact that we are cousins of gorillas, kangaroos, starfish, and bacteria. Evolution is as much a fact as the heat of the sun."

Well, then, it's settled. All real scientists agree, after all. It must be so.

Just one problem, Professor Dawkins: It turns out there are literally thousands of real scientists who have publicly proclaimed their doubts about Darwinian evolution. And no doubt there are many thousands more who keep their doubts under their hats - for good reason, it turns out.

That reason is revealed in horrifying detail in Dr. Jerry Bergman's eye-opening book, Slaughter of the Dissidents: The Shocking Truth about Killing the Careers of Darwin Doubters. In it, Dr. Bergman describes the discrimination experienced by more than a dozen Darwin-doubting scientists, primarily in academia. And we're not talking insults at the water cooler. These men and women have been denied tenure and awards, forced out, fired, blackballed, even subjected to death threats - not because of what they did or said, but because of what they believe.

Dr. Bergman experienced this sort of Orwellian discrimination himself in the late 1970s; he had become disillusioned with Darwinism, and lost his job at Bowling Green State University for saying so. Professor Dawkins would no doubt try to slap the "not a real scientist" label on him. But it wouldn't stick, because Dr. Bergman:

* Has nine college degrees - two of them Ph.D.s - from the Medical College of Ohio, Wayne State University, The University of Toledo, and Bowling Green State University.

Format: Paperback
In the fall of 2008, my wife and I had the privilege of being guests with Dr. Jerry Bergman and his wife on our trek from Philadelphia to Cokato, MN. On that occasion, he signed a purchased copy of his book, Slaughter of the Dissidents. It took me awhile to read through it--snippets here and there before turning out the light beside my bed.

It is not my purpose here to give a comprehensive review, but I thought that I would at least refer to several aspects that stood out for me.

Marvin Olasky was a "Communist" who became a Christian. He wrote of Prof. Marvin Felheim (University of Michigan) that "He was angry when he read a draft of my dissertation and saw that I was no longer a Marxist. He wrote plaintively, `I thought you were one of our most intelligent students.' Apparently, moving from atheistic left to biblical right causes brains to fall out" (p. 125).

Raymond Damadian, the inventor of the extremely important medical tool, the MRI, believed, with reference to the evolutionary account of how life came into being, that the "sheer statistics of that violate any sense of reality." See page 290.

I also appreciated Bergman's chapters on 1. Creationist Werher Von Braun, 2. the outspoken opponent-of-Darwinism Mortimer Adler, and 3. The founder-of-the-field-of-antibiotics Ernst Boris Chain.

Dr. Bergman has supplied us with a very large amount of documentation that there is indeed intolerance and even hostility in academia toward theism--especially of the Christian variety.

Jesus, when He walked this earth, said: "If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated Me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world.
