George Deutsch Daily Update

An Aggie's big bang at NASA, Houston Chronicle

"It is not NASA's place, nor should it be to make a declaration such as this about the existence of the universe that discounts intelligent design by a creator," Deutsch lectured the contractor. "This is more than a science issue, it is a religious issue. And I would hate to think that young people would only be getting one-half of this debate from NASA."

"We are both Christians, and I was sharing with him my personal opinions on the Big Bang theory versus intelligent design," Mr. Deutsch wrote to The Times. "What I said about intelligent design did not affect the presentation of the Big Bang theory in the subsequent Einstein Web story. This is a very important point, because I have been accused of trying to insert religion into this story, which I was not trying to do."

Editor's note: Let's see, George, you invoked religion in your memo while you were at NASA, then you make note to the NY Times of the fact that you and Hansen are "both Christians". Why are either of your religious beliefs relevant to anything at NASA? You've brought up the topic of religion yet again. And then you take issue with being accused of "trying to insert religion into this story" when indeed you did - and continue to do so.
