Those unscientific creationists

April 20, 2015

As I just did for Ben Carson, I’m profiling a creationist who also succeeded in a STEM discipline. This time it’s Internet wizard and self-made billionaire entrepreneur Greg Gianforte. From his Wikipedia page:

Gianforte holds a B.E. degree in electrical engineering and an M.S. degree in computer science from Stevens Institute of Technology. Gianforte began his career at AT&T Bell Laboratories and was one of the engineers on AT&T’s StarLAN Network project.

Gianforte co-founded Brightwork Development Inc., a developer of network management applications. Gianforte served as president and built the company to 75 employees with software installed on 150,000 Novell network systems, and then sold the business to McAfee Associates in 1994. Retained by McAfee, Gianforte went on to serve as North American VP, where the company’s North American sales operation grew from $25 million to more than $60 million in revenues in less than a year.

Gianforte founded RightNow Technologies in 1997 which went public in 2004 and was sold to Oracle Corporation for $1.5 billion in 2011.

    I like this series. It would be interesting, as well, to read about their thoughts on science and creationism.
