The article focuses on intelligent advocate and professor Caronile Crocker at George Mason University in Fairfax Country, Virginia. According to report, a student complained after Crocker mentioned the topic on intelligent design in a class and taught false creationist material. However, the administrators of the University had warned Crocker not to teach about intelligence design which is not included in the curriculum of the courses she had been hired to teach. After her teaching career at George Mason, she pursued a postdoctoral scientist at the Uniformed Services University and taught molecular biology techniques.
