Why is it that the Christian students who most want to share their faith in essays and such are insipid and unquestioning?
I started reading a paper in which a student shared some Christian faith stuff and I just put it down. I couldn't bear for the moment to read another word of insipid, unthoughtful idiocy.
And why are these sames students so offended at the idea of reading about another cultural tradition?
I wonder when was the last time their church "taught the controversy" with an eye to deepening understanding of evolution?
Seriously, I do not want to read your "research" paper about how you learned in church that things are too complicated to have evolved.
College is about changing your mind. It's easy when that means you change your mind from not understanding integrals to understanding integrals. It's not nearly so easy when changing your mind means you question what you've been taught. But that's the point; if you question it, and what you've been taught is well supported by reason and evidence, then it's worth holding onto it. If you can't find reason or evidence, then you should drop it like a hot tooth fairy. But at least you should question it.
Or just go away and don't whine that I'm asking you to think too much, and that I'm ruining everything by asking you to think.
