Some of us have called for Francis Collins to resign from the woo-laden BioLogos Foundation before taking up directorship of the National Institutes of Health. Not that he heeded our call or anything, but he’s gonna step down. Let’s hope this leads the whole ghastly foundation to crumble.
From an article in the latest Nature:
The BioLogos Foundation has confirmed that Collins would step down from his role there before taking up the reins at the NIH. It’s the right move, says Varmus. “Discussion about the foundation and his involvement with it could readily become a distraction from the business of running the NIH,” he told Nature.
