The Scientist reports today on the unfolding Congressional probe into the Sternberg case. The following paragraph caught my attention:
NCSE spokesman Nicholas Matzke said his group was not part of an effort to dismiss Sternberg. “A lot of people at the Smithsonian were mad because their journal was dragged into a political issue. We wanted them to focus on the science and not persecute or discriminate against Sternberg on religious grounds,” Matzke told The Scientist. “We advised them not to fire Sternberg,” he said, “and they eventually followed our advice.”
My understanding is that the NCSE did everything just short of asking the Smithsonian to fire Sternberg (does the “S” in “NCSE” stand for sleazy?). But hey, let’s not beat our gums. The Office of Special Counsel (OSC) has all the emails that the NCSE sent to Sternberg’s employers. Let’s see them.
