University settles lawsuit with scientist fired after he found soft tissue in dinosaur bones

By Chad Dou

CSUN scientist Mark Armitage found soft tissue in a dinosaur bone, a discovery that throws significant doubt on evolution. Then, two weeks after publishing his findings, he was fired.

Now California State University at Northridge has paid Armitage a six-figure sum to settle his wrongful termination suit based on religious discrimination. While the university admits no wrongdoing, Armitage’s attorney said they feared losing a protracted lawsuit because of a “smoking gun” email that backed the plaintiff’s case.

The case of Armitage is the latest to show the mounting hostility Christians face in academics and other public arenas.

A workshop working with leather @jeroenjaygerits from #jaysleatherandcanvas helped me create two sheaths for my two handmade knives. Loved it. #handmade #bushcraft #bushcraftnederland #siegurd #staatsbosbeheer #knives #gooutside #wheredoyouroam #hikeronline #leather #leatherwork #hikeronlineofficial
Jerusalem Pilgrimage - Day 33 Today I ended my trip with a nice Leffe (for those who remember I stayed at the Leffe Abbey in Belgium) in Bar-sur-Aube. Tomorrow I'm travelling back to The Netherlands. First I'll get my car by train at Chalôns-en-Champagne and there continue my journey to the north. Hope you enjoyed this episode. Pictures and route will soon be on my new website at ---> wvanderwolf.com Perhaps till next time ... 🖐️ #walkforjesus #jerusalempilgrimage #jerusalem #hiking #hikeronlineofficial #hikeronline #pilgrimage #france #europe #viafrancigena #wheredoyouroam #gooutside
Jerusalem Pilgrimage - Day 32 Today I took a zero. Time for much needed rest for body, soul and spirit. I went out and first did some household chores. After that I went for a stroll and studied the life of Napoléon Bonaparte. Interesting .... #walkforjesus #jerusalempilgrimage #jerusalem #europe #france #pilgrimage #hikeronline #hikeronlineofficial #hiking #napoleon #briennelechateau #wheredoyouroam #gooutside #history
Jerusalem Pilgrimage - Day 31 Last night I stayed at a hospitable community of people with mental problems. Interesting to see how pilgrims are welcomed there. Today I walked to Brienne-le-Château. The former dwelling place of Napoleon Bonaparte. It was a cloudy and windy day with several showers. Nonetheless a beautiful hiking day. #walkforjesus #jerusalem #jerusalempilgrimage #hikeronline #hikeronlineofficial #hiking #france #europe #viafrancigena #pilgrimage #wheredoyouroam #gooutside #enjoynature
Jerusalem Pilgrimage - Day 30 Water ... such an essential commodity during a hike. Especially when you walk long distances without seeing anyone. People are so helpful and kind in the small villages where I come. Mostly farmers and other hard working folks. Life is difficult but within these communities people depend on each other. #walkforjesus #hikeronline #hikeronlineofficial #hiking #pilgrimage #europe #france #jerusalem #jerusalempilgrimage #wheredoyouroam #gooutside #viafrancigena
Jerusalem Pilgrimage - Day 29 Today back on the trail again. Such a special feeling. Drove early this morning to Chalôns-en-Champagne and started walking. It was hot today. Had to rest a couple of times to make sure I wouldn't get overheated. #walkforjesus #jerusalempilgrimage #jerusalem #hikeronline #hikeronlineofficial #hiking #europe #france #pilgrimage #viafrancigena #wheredoyouroam #gooutside
Preparations for Episode 9 of my 'Pilgrimage to Jerusalem'. How I miss the trail ... ♥️ #walkforjesus #jerusalempilgrimage #hiking #france #israel #jerusalem #europe #hikeronline #hikeronlineofficial #viafrancigena #wheredoyouroam #gooutside
Jerusalem Pilgrimage - Day 28 Interesting walk today from Trépail to Châlons-en-Champagne. Less 'grey' compared to yesterday. Even the sun came out for a while. A short episode this time with only two days of walking. Tomorrow driving back home to The Netherlands. #walkforjesus #jerusalempilgrimage #jerusalem #hikeronline #hikeronlineofficial #france #israel #pilgrimage #champagne🍾 #wheredoyouroam #gooutside #viafrancigena
Jerusalem Pilgrimage - Day 27 Today was a 'grey' day. Left home early this morning and drove to Reims. Started a new LDT there called the 'Via Francigena'. Walked from Reims to Trépail through the vineyards of the famous 'Champagne'. Ended my walk today at the house of a sweet old lady where I enjoyed a French meal, a hot shower and a warm bed. #walkforjesus #jerusalempilgrimage #jerusalem #trépail #france #israel #wheredoyouroam #gooutside #viafrancigena #hikeronline #hikeronlineofficial #hiking
Jerusalem Pilgrimage - Day 26 Today I ended this episode of my journey in Reims. I said farewell to the 'Via Campaniensis' and hope to start a new Long Distance Trail next time. This next trail will take me to Switzerland and to Italy. Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to all my Instagram friends. Hope to meet you again next year! #walkforjesus #jerusalempilgrimage #jerusalem #israel #hikeronline #hikeronlineofficial #france #hikeon #wheredoyouroam #gooutside #viacampaniensis
Jerusalem Pilgrimage - Day 25 Started early this morning with some shopping at the local Carrefour. It was cold today. Walked to Bazancourt. Staying at a local farmer tonight. Will be interesting ... 😀 The French and Christmas ... 🤣 😢 #walkforjesus #jerusalempilgrimage #jerusalem #israel #france #hiking #hikeronline #hikeronlineofficial #hikeon #wheredoyouroam #gooutside #viacampaniensis #bazancourt
Jerusalem Pilgrimage - Day 24 The first day with frost on the trail. Always spectaculair pics ... 😀 Walked to a place called Château-Porcien where I'm staying at 'Maison des Pèlerins'.
