I am currently enrolled in a basic philosophy class. Our current reading is that of Lucretius' "The Nature of Things." After asking our opinions on it, one girl said to the professor that she hated it because it ranted on the "evils of religion" Well what about his theory on atoms? "He called religion evil!"
So fast forward to the next class, the professor asks us a simple question, "Is it possible to literally see the atomic structure of wheat?" Same girl, "Well, what about God, because he sees everything."
Honestly, you're not helping yourself or the discussion every time you bring up God. I'm not an atheist, but I honestly think that when it comes to the classroom, religion should be brought up as little as possible, and if possible not at all. By relying on "Well God..." as an answer defeats the purpose of you learning and answering questions. Do a little more thinking, it's not that hard.
Thoughts, opinions, hatred, all is welcome in this discussion.
