The Krauss Debacle: More Allegations Surface

Screenshot from Cristina Rad’s video.
  • Remove Lawrence Krauss from the AHA pool of potential speakers, writers, or presenters
  • Place Lawrence Krauss’s 2015 Humanist of the Year Award in an administrative review status (during this time references and recognition will be removed until a formal process for consideration is developed and a determination is made)
  • Improve the AHA Humanist of the Year awardee selection process to have a more in-depth inquiry into potential candidates’ personal ethics, reputations, and actions to ensure they are in accordance with humanist values as AHA states them
  • Create a new addendum policy that stipulates those circumstances under which awards already given may be revoked
