Biography[edit]

Bergman graduated from Wayne State University where he received his bachelor's degree in 1970 and completed a Ph.D. in biomedical science there six years later. In 1986 he finished an M.A. in social psychology from the Bowling Green State University and subsequently joined the teaching staff, but he was denied tenure in 1979 and dismissed in 1980.[3] In 1983 he became a fellow of the American Scientific Affiliation, and he has since been made a fellow of the American Scientific Association and a member of the National Association for the Advancement of Science. By 1992, he had obtained a Ph.D. in human biology from the Columbia Pacific University, an unaccredited institution, which was subsequently closed by court order. By 1999, he had earned a master's degree in biomedical science from the Medical College of Ohio, which two years later awarded him an M.P.H. degree.[2]

He was also listed on the Who’s Who in America and other Who's Who related lists. For ten years he has worked in many mental health clinics as a professional counselor and was a consultant to such magazines as Reader's Digest and Amnesty International and for news channels such as ABC and CBS. Due to his numerous articles and books he was invited to the Paul Harvey Show where he appeared more than once. His numerous books were published by such publishers as the College Student Journal Press, the Phi Delta Kappa and the Onesimus Press.[2]

  • Slaughter of the Dissidents: The Shocking Truth about Killing the Careers of Darwin Doubters (2008)[4] This catalogs what Bergman claims is a long series of incidents in which non-Darwinist academics had their careers damaged because of their beliefs.[5]
