Atheist Professers - page 19

:confused: Hi everyone! I'm kind of new here, and I have a question: Right now I'm in A&P and my professor is an all out atheist. I realized when I decided to go the nursing route I would... Read More

    the fact that it got of topic is what cause threads like this to go astray. and almost always end up getting ugly. i have no problem with a good debate it is just very hard to have one for long on religon or politics. people alaways want to bring other topics and issues into it and that does nothing but muddy up and cloud the topic of debate. if we want to debate religon lets start a thread on religon i will be glad to engage you in a healthy debate. but lets stic kto the issues at hand on this thread if we want to continue to discuss it. or else it will get way of track and out of hand

    I can understand how this got started on the Nursing student thread but now I think it doesn't belong.. how about "Controversial Topics"

    Some people dont consider the "message of god" good news-they find offensive and oppressive.

    Suzie-Lee,

    Some people find Agnostics or Atheists offensive or oppressive, it's a two way street.

    micro, it is not that i don't enjoy your humor, i get a clear understanding when you are serious and they (your posts)are enlightening. i needed to clarify.
    thx lpn,future,rn and research rabbit...........
    misspelled elegance.........hehehehehehehehehe

    hey to all, i profess to make no sense today.....so ya'all might relate this to micro humour.........but.....(cynicism=micro labels microself)

    the point doesn't seem to be against believers and nonbelievers........the problem seems yet to be between people with different belief systems............
    atheism is a belief system.........
    being unique...........micro worships the unique & different god............also of other names, but..............
    agnosticism.......micro could fall here also........
    belief in the god of the trinity.......very valid belief system folks.......
    belief of a god or gods.........very valid belief systems..............
    belief in science and fact only.........also a very valid and factual system of evaluating this existence..........
    there is a very cool thing in a faith in something unseen, just known and believed.......i value that in people.........
    i do not see it as a weakness, but only as a difference........
    i have been there also............
    micro believes in what micro feels and what micro sees right in front of microself.........valid belief system also.....
    sorta a combination of all of the above................
    of course micro is a god or goddess, depending on the day.......and mood.............and reminders from a friend



    but i believe and want to go back to the original post #1 of this thread.........this talks about a college a&p class where someone felt that a professor was insulting and even worse discrimating against christians..............

    i was not there, so it is entirely true, that the professor was indeed doing this. if so, very wrong......and should of course be reported. christianity is a majority belief system in this country and " 'world'?"

    but what has been micro's humble experience in this world.....is that when micro's belief system whatever it may be.....feels threatened.......in whatever shape or form........micro feels resistance....and quits listening............rather than learn and grow.......................

    an instructor may have a different background.....and if micro is the student and the professor is the professor......then maybe, micro should just be quiet and listen to the instructor.................
    and if you choose to attend and listen to the minister of the church of your choosing.........listen and learn and grow.......

    but let me make my own choices without any conversion..........

    it is all choice...........
    are us humans not smart.................
    we sure are a testy lot.......................

    to every thing turn, turn, turn...........
    :spin: :spin: :spin:

    a great song from the sixties...........
    inspired from ecclesiastes...........

    I think Mark had the right idea:

    "i just made it perfectly clear to him that i was here to learn but not to be indoctrinated to his views! i ended up filling a complaint with the dean of the nursing program and the president. they reprimanded him...i am fine with some one sharing opinions but i will not tolerate instructors trying to change my beliefs."

    You are PAYING for an education!
    You have a right to be educated!
    He has no more right to slam Christian beliefs from the podium than he would to make sexist remarks or racial slurs...do NOT tolerate it!

    Similarly, Christians and other zealous folks should be appropriate in what venues religious beliefs are discussed...and should be done so without being derogatory.

    My friends and peers at work discuss religion and politics at work all the time...the rule is just to present YOUR opinion and LISTEN to others...no tearing down of anothers' views!

    Please, don't let professors in education get away with poor behavior! We are expecting professionalism from you when you graduate...likewise you should expect it from your teachers!

    Please don't use "Alheist" and "jerk" in the same sentence. Yes your Prof may be a jerk, but thats not because he's an Atheist. If you assume he's a jerk because he's an Atheist you've openned a whole bag of worms, because that would be stereotyping and pre-judging him. If he's a jerk just say he's a jerk.

    Sarah
    UM, I CALLED HIM AN ATHEIST AS HE ADMITTED SO....AND HE WAS A JERK...

    AND HE ALSO SLAMMED JEWS AND CATHOLICS (OF WHICH I AM ONE) SO YOU'RE DARN RIGHT HE OFFENDED ME.

    HE WAS ONE OF THOSE PROFS THAT YOU JUST WANT TO HOLLER, "WHAT THE H*LL DOES THIS HAVE TO DO W/ A & P?"

    AND YES, I AM HOLLERING B/C I WAS VERY OFFENDED...
