Letter to Chair of Department of Physics, Columbia University, January 12, 2013
Dear Dr. Zajc,
I'm trying to get the American Journal of Physics to retract "Entropy and evolution" (Am. J. Phys., Vol. 76, No. 11, November 2008). Equation 4b is an incorrect application of the Boltzmann equation for entropy. My correspondence about the issue is at
http://newevangelist.me/2012/02/02/american-journal-of-physics/
http://newevangelist.me/2012/02/23/american-association-of-physics-teachers/
http://newevangelist.me/2012/05/06/american-institute-of-physics/

An article explaining why the AJP article is absurd is at
http://creationwiki.org/Pseudoscience_in_the_American_Journal_of_Physics

I'll be giving a lecture in New York City about the matter on March 15, 2013. In addition to Equation 4b, I'll be discussing the following:
1. Darwinism only explains the adaptation of species to the environment, not common descent.
2. Advocates of intelligent design and nonreligious dilettantes are inhibited from thinking intelligently and rationally about evolution because of anxiety about religion.
3. It is an error to think evolution violates the second law of thermodynamics, but it is a more egregious error to think evolution does not violate the second law of thermodynamics because of the sun.
There is no cost for the lecture and no ticket, but to obtain a reservation and the exact location and time click on the following link:

Letter to John J. DeGioia, March 23, 2013
Dear Mr. DeGioia,
I am writing to request an appointment to discuss my letter to you of February 21, 2013, criticizing Dr. Edward Van Keuren and Fr. Stephen Fields for helping the American Journal of Physics cover up its mistake in publishing “Entropy and evolution.” To this list I want to add Dr. John H. Haught and Dr. Joseph Serene.

I posted a review of Debating Design: From Darwin to DNA on Amazon.com that explains why the article contains an incorrect equation in physics. This situation is like the story of the Emperor’s Clothes, where only a child spoke out. Another sickening analogy is that it is like the silence of people in Nazi Germany about the murder of civilians during World War II.

If the AJP article is not retracted and you do not meet with me, you will have a shameful act on your conscience.

Letter to the President of the University of California, Berkeley, March 17, 2014
Dear Dr. Dirks,
Terrance Deacon sent me an email refusing to support my criticism of the editor of Zygon: Journal of Religion and Science. Deacon is Chair of Anthropology and is on the Editorial Advisory Board of Zygon.

I am a religious blogger and speaker, and have a PhD in physics from New York University. I was ridiculing Richard Dawkins for things he said about the second law of thermodynamics and evolution in one of his books. An officer of the National Center for Science Education cited an article published by the American Journal of Physics saying exactly the same thing Dawkins said and proving it with a calculation.

I was shocked when I read the article, and I explained why the calculation was wrong to the editor of the AJP. He suggested I submit my own article about the matter. I did so, and an anonymous reviewer said my article was not publishable. Zygon is engaging in the same kind of shenanigans.

I told Yvette Clarke (D-NY, 9th district) that the AJP is perpetrating a fraud upon the public with the goal of promoting atheism. My correspondence with the U. S. House of Representatives is here:
http://newevangelist.me/2013/04/12/national-science-foundation/

The following 3-minute podcast gives my understanding of the conflict about the theory of intelligent design and sheds light on this matter:
http://www.buzzsprout.com/16337/143091-the-intelligent-design-scam

The AJP article sheds light on the murder of civilians during WWII by the Nazis. No one was ever forced to kill anyone. However, there were severe penalties for anyone who told about the murders. The science establishment in the United States is covering up the mistake the AJP made in publishing the article. I found out the penalty that is in store for anyone who blows the whistle on the AJP. When I contacted a professor at New York University about this matter, his response was insulting and hostile.

Letter to the President of the University of Oregon, February 3, 2014
Dear Mr. Gottfredson,
David Sokoloff, Stanley Micklavzina, and Ray Frey of your physics department are helping the American Journal of Physics cover up its mistake in publishing an article about evolution that discredits creationism. The article makes the anti-religion side in the culture war about evolution look ridiculous, and I can guess whose side those characters are on. I can understand their difficulty in wrapping their heads around the idea that a peer-reviewed physics article could be absurd, and I am willing to explain the errors in the article to them.

My latest email to them was directed to Miss Zhen Cheng (zcheng@uoregon.edu) who is on the mailing list of the American Scientific Affiliation. The ASA is supporting the AJP even though it is a Christian organization. I am urging Miss Cheng to give up her membership in the ASA as a protest. I am concerned that the three stooges will discriminate against her because she is a member of a Christian organization. I am also concerned that they will put pressure on her not to resign from the ASA.

I think you should know too that the ASA has told me in the past I am misusing their mailing list. However, their current silence is indicative of their low moral values. Sokoloff’s low moral values were revealed in his email to me: “Remove me from your email list, now! David Sokoloff, Way Past President, American Association of Physics Teachers.” The AAPT is one of the publishers of the AJP.

Dear Dr. Berger,
I’v attached a copy of the email I sent to you (dberger@yu.edu) and Josh Joseph (josh.josheph@yu.edu) on April 1, 2014. I spoke to your secretary that morning and told her I sent the email. She said she would give you a heads up.

This morning, in our telephone conversation, you said that you did not get the email. You hung up on me when I said your physics chair (Fredy Zypman) was disgracing Yeshiva U. because he was helping the American Journal of Physics promote atheistic pseudoscience. You can apologize for your disgraceful conduct by inviting me to explain to you why the article referred to should be retracted.

Letter sent to David Gottesman, First Manhattan Co., April 10, 2014
Dear Mr. Gottesman,
Over a year ago, you refused my request for an appointment to explain why the chairman of the physics department at Yeshiva was a moral coward. On September 9, 2013, I met with your counterpart at Providence College (Fr. Brian Mulcahy, 212-737-5757) and explained why the chairman of the physics department there had the same character defect. Fr. Mulcahy indicated that he would investigate my allegations, but he never got back to me. The enclosed email to Prof. Berger tells part of the story of what I am complaining about.

I’v since contacted Senator Schumer and Senator Gillibrand as the matter now concerns national security. You should do one of the following things:

1) Invite me to explain the matter in person.
2) Ask Fr. Mulcahy what happened during and after our meeting.
3) Ask your congressman what the status is of Congressman Yvette Clarke’s investigation of this scandal.
4) Ask the senators whether they will be assigning a caseworker to my complaint. I also told the Senate Committee on Homeland Security about this.

Very truly yours, David Roemer

Dear Professor Berger,
I am hoping you will take an interest in this matter because I believe it sheds light on the Holocaust. In Nazi Germany, no one was ever forced to kill anyone. However, there were severe penalties for telling about the murders.

In the 21st century, the entire scientific establishment in the U.S. is helping to cover up a mistake the American Journal of Physics made in publishing an absurd article about evolution and thermodynamics. The article undermines the integrity of science and gives Islamic terrorists real evidence that American is the "Great Satan." The article reminds me of the famous Piltdown Man hoax.

The attached certificate of mailing is for an ignored request to explain this matter to the President of Yeshiva U. To understand this hoax, it helps to understand why the theory of intelligent design is a scam perpetrated by those for and against ID. I explain my point of view in this 3-­minute podcast:
https://www.buzzsprout.com/16377/143091-­the-­intelligent-­design-­scam.
This is a letter I wrote to Congressman Yvette Clarke (D-­NY, 9th district) about the evolution hoax.
