Since today is international "Pi" day -- here's a fun vid
Maximus, at least they learn how to spell "indoctrinate"
I also notice spelling mentioned several times here. If we want to address spelling then let's take Ben Franklin's advice and re-work our alphabet and pronunciation so that words are pronounced the same way they are spelled.
Borrowing a few examples from Gallagher ... why is the letter "o" pronounced differently in each of these words...a little consistency please! Oh..and don't even get me started on "silent" letters!
comb, tomb, bomb
I see learning cursive becoming more of a social indicator rather than a requirement to be able to communicate. Certainly being able to read cursive handwriting is still useful and let's admit it ... how many of us, at least tried, at one point in our life to learn calligraphy ... it's way cool!
Should cursive be a requirement in the same class with reading or math...no, but certainly it should be offered as an elective ... maybe even something in the art department where different types of cursive from various languages can be learned or studied.
Assuming for the moment that the biology and science faculty actually teach science accurately...then one has to ask, based on this contract ...why would any parent want their child to attend a university where the professors believe that what they are teaching the students is incorrect?
For that matter, why would any student with a head on their shoulder want to attend?
Think about it, "Hi, I'd like my son/daughter to attend university where the faculty teaches them what they consider to be lies"
Ah Charlie ... better to be gay and happy then to be ignorant and unaware of it.
That might be the case in Tennessee, but happily, in the rest of the US and the majority of the educated world I might add, people understand the difference between science and religious dogma.
Want to believe in a literal Adam and Eve and show off a wide range of ignorance, not only in biology, but linguistics, genetics, literary criticism and theory, etc. be my guest.
Hey Conservative, I just realized something ... if you are job hunting I bet you could a job as a professor of biology at Bryan College ....
Can you do anything but repeat the same idiotic phrase .. we already know you are ignorant of evolutionary theory...you don't need to keep restating the evidence....we got it already!
Mr Alexander ... please keep in mind while looking at the "whole" context, that from a Christian perspective, and that of trinitarian theology, one must also consider the words and actions of the Old Testament since it is the same God doing the acting and speaking...the one who ordered Abraham to sacrifice his son, the one who ordered the wholesale slaughter of men, women, children and animals (I Samuel 15:1-3 etc.)
