Mtsu - page 2

Hi all. I would like to hear from you about MTSU and the role of religion in their program. I really like everything about the school, but I am not too familiar with Seventh Day Adventists. Is it... Read More

    I work with several Seventh Day Adventists who are very nice, normal people. They are not "nuts."

    I personally have no problem and no reason to judge people who have different backgrounds or beliefs. I do, however, take issue with people who pose to be knowledgeable and educated who cannot spell or use proper grammar. :uhoh21:
    Susswood, while I may have not edited my text properly, it was more understandable that crap you wrote. Your statement, "I work with several Seventh Day Adventists who are very nice, normal people. They are not "nuts.", is a load of crap! Try taking a philosophy class so your arguments will have some logic to them! You committed the error of "fallacy of composition". Why would you think that knowing couple of Seventh Day Adventists would allow you to assess whether SDA church is cult or nuts? Try reading the Church doctrine before you purport to have knowledge about the SDA church.

    Come on now. I thought nurses were supposed to be objective and open-minded. Calling a religion "crap" is being a little tough.

    Oh what do I know? I must be nuts..or full of crap. :uhoh21:

    Having majored in Philospohy and Religion for three years at a well respected university years before I went into nursing, I am fully aware of how to construct a logically sound argument. I supported myself during that time as a philosophy and logic tutor and came highly recommended for that position by my professors. My use of the word "they" was in reference to the several Seventh Day Adventists that I personally know. "They are not nuts" is a subjective statement in reference to my personal experience with those people. I was not attempting in any way to pose a formal argument to the previous post, just reflecting an opinion. Regardless of what I know about Seventh Day Adventists or how logically constructed you may have found my post, my statements were written in an attempt to demonstrate tolerance and acceptance of other people and their beliefs. Human understanding often falls outside the realm of logic. If you want to argue about the cult status of various religions or whether or not people are nuts for their beliefs, try finding a discussion format which supports that. This is nursing.

    I am reading these boards for a couple of years now and I really appreciated them. It is amazing to me though that smart people (like those aspiring to become CRNAs or are already) argue so much about something so personal and show off their prejudices without minding of offending others. I am SDA and I am always doing my best and am alwas appreciated for whatever I do and wherever I am. I am proud of that and I never imposed on anyone my beliefs. I guess one would be lucky to get into one of SDAs schools... though I haven't heard they have a CRNA program somewhere...

    Wow. When I originally posted, I didn't mean to start a big religious debate. Really. I mostly just wanted to know about people's experiences going to MTSA from the standpoint of being a "non-SDA". Thank you all for your posts - it's been interesting, and I did get some useful information.

    Hello,
    I hope to apply to MTSA July 2011. These post are a little old? Is there anyone who attended the school and continues to rate it highly? I suppose there is no gross anatomy class. I went to the school's website and there appears to be a lot of traveling which concerns me more than the religious aspect. I would love to pick someone's brain.

    Thank you for your time

    I completely agree. I was born a SDA. We do not try to shove our religion down your throat. I am very open minded. I say and treat other the way I would like to be talked and treated. Thank you very much. It is very nice to know that this SAD University is well respected.
