All I can say is "Wow."
Ian Juby
Darwinism is also part of the mainstream news media's dogma, as readers of most daily newspapers can attest - and as Dr. Bergman demonstrates again and again.
Kitty Foth-Regner
The book is extremely well documented with 68 pages of references cited for anyone doubting his conclusions.

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.

I have only read one chapter out of this book, the one on Raymond Damadian, the man who invented MRI. It is terrible that a man could make such sacrifices and invent something that really helps people, and not get the recognition he deserves, all because he does not follow the norm of the mainstream scientific community and believe in evolution. I think that people's accomplishments don't mean anything in some groups unless you think like they do, and if you invent something important, they will give credit to someone else instead. That is what is going on in some of our universities and the mainstream scientific community. Dr. Bergman does a great job of documenting many cases similar to Mr. Damadian's, in that they are being shunned by the academic and scientific community based on their creationist beliefs. I think they should be judged based on their accomplishments.
Dr. Bergman is my professor and he does a great job of making class more interesting by talking about all the different things he has done in his life. He also encourages us to look at all sides of issues, such as evolution, which is very important since it gets us to think about things, rather than being told how to think by a teacher. He says "Beware of a man who has read one book", because that person hasn't looked at the other side of things, and I would have to agree. I would recommend this book to people who have interest in case studies and even to people who disagree with creationism, because they would not want to be told that they have to believe a certain way to get the recognition they deserve for their accomplishments.
