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.

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.

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.
