He’ll be fine. Amidst a flurry of protestations that he did nothing wrong, he has announced his departure from academia.
In a statement, Krauss said he submitted a request to retire as an ASU professor at the end of the academic year, which is May 16, 2019. The university accepted the request and closed the review process, Krauss said.ASU confirmed it has accepted Krauss’ request to retire.
Isn’t that neat? He gets to retire with his pension, and no further investigation will occur, and he gets to claim vindication, because no accusations will be examined. Everyone who wants to keep him going on the ol’ lecture circuit can now claim that he was found innocent by default.
If you’d asked me before what the most likely outcome would be, this is it. The system is set up this way to protect everyone from their actions in a nice sheltering womb.
Well, “everyone” being a privileged elite who are guaranteed to never suffer any consequences. It’s great.
Look for Lawrence Krauss to be headlining atheist/skeptical conferences all over the country next year, as if nothing had happened!
