What is it about the university of Chicago?
My son recently graduated from the University of Chicago with a degree in Physics last week. I’m bursting with pride at his accomplishment.
Some very prominent Nobel prize winners are associated with The University of Chicago Physics department:
Albert Abraham Michelson, Robert Andrews Millikan, James Franck Holly Compton Werner Heisenberg Clinton Joseph Davisson Enrico Fermi, Ernest Orlando Lawrence Chen Ning Yang, Tsung-Dao Lee, Owen Chamberlain Maria Goeppert-Mayer Eugene Wigner Julian Schwinger Hans Albrecht Bethe Luis W. Alvarez Murray Gell-Mann Robert Schrieffer James W. Cronin Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar Dr. Jack Steinberger Leon Lederman Jerome Isaac Friedman Daniel Chee Tsui Frank Wilczek.
It pretty much reads like a “Who’s Who” in physics.
Did I tell you I’m pretty proud of my son? Maybe he’ll be on this list someday.
Meanwhle, the University of Chicago has the distinction of graduating some pretty illustrious lights in the Intelligent Design movement and other anti-evolution types:
Phillip E. Johnson B.A University of Chicago
William Dembski PhD University of Chicago
James Shapiro Professor University of Chicago
Paul Nelson Ph.D. University of Chicago
Is it the gargoyles at the University of Chicago…or is it something more sinister?
