Atheist Professers - page 11

: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

    Dear Puppy love,

    I appreciate your candor. However what you are forgetting is that we live in a world where laws reflect society. To legalize abortion doesn't say that it's right or wrong, it does however give people of difference beliefs the freedom of choice. To live in America is to live with freedom. I feel that the A&P Prof. that started this argument is wrong. He is employed to teach. Thats it thats all, and he has strayed from the curiculum. But if it were a christian Prof. I would feel the same to. Every individual has his or her own set of values that they should be allowed to express, but not on the job, and certainly not in a classroom. Become a missionary if you think it's your life's job to convert. As a nurse I'm sure that I'll run into many patients with different faiths. I will comletely respect each individuals faith. I will most likely disagree with 98% of them, but that is NOT my job.

    That's why abortion is legal, gay marriage is legal, and why Osama bin Laden isn't DEAD yet!

    OK, I'll bite. So you are saying that the liberals of this country have kept Osama alive? And how, do tell, have we become responsible for that? Besides, do you know something the rest of us don't? I just flipped on CNN just to make sure he hadn't hit the airwaves again.

    Peeps: Depends who's books you look in. I, however, cannot take my man to the courthouse and get married, therefore it is not legal. Is legal and Denmark and Finland, and you know those two countries are going down the drain.

    My favorite on the subject is Chris Rock..."gays still can't get married....DAMN who's got it better than that?!?!"

    Sarah: she's totally entitled to that, I just get irritated when people speak their minds using untruths. I wasn't going to waste my time explaining the possible situations that can arise when dealing with foreign enemies or arguing about abortion...but gay marriage legal??? Come on now!

    Right on, please enlighten us. Sources with footnotes requested. And tell me where I can get that marriage license!! I saw some curtains at Saks that would be fab in my foyer.

    You know what kills me Brian, it's when people don't treat other individuals with respect due to their beliefs or how they were born. Women still don't get treated equally, African Americans don't get the respect they deserve, Native Americans don't get it, neither do Mexican Americans. But really, compared to the rights of gay couples, it's a cake walk for alot of these minorities. I strongly feel that you and your partner deserve all the respect that heterosexual couples get (not anymore, but not anyless).

    You are a person and deserve to feel like one!

    This will help make your communication clearer, and make your posts look more "thoughtful".

    "Left-click" your mouse, and without releasing the button, "drag" your cursor across the part of the post you're addressing. When you have highlighted all the desired text....lift your finger off the mouse button. Now right click and select "copy" from the drop-down menu.

    Above your reply window you'll observe some buttons "B" "I" forth, click on "I" and type "By Peeps"..then "OK" will appear in your post as
    By Peeps ................then click on the button "quote" and right click and select "paste"

    Ta......Daaa! are now ready to directly address a point made and recieve a response in kind.

    Hope that helps.
    Thanks for "illustrating" my "point" so "beautifully."

    I lose sales at work (i sell appliances..not glam but it pays for school) because I tell people off whenever someone makes a comment of any sort. "Why is this programed in spanish? I'm so sick of these mexicans all over the place." "I'd rather talk to a woman about the sewing machines/ranges." It would be easy for me to let it slide, but I don't want their money if that's how they feel. I REFUSE to take abuse in order to support myself..i'm going to be one bytch of a nurse!!

    Oh pleeeeze, someone spell it correctly before it makes me crazy!

    BTW, really enjoying the debate. May hazard an opinion later about religion...

    As for political leanings (NOTE NO RELIGION MENTIONED OR MEANT TO BE IMPLIED)...

    I am tired of the Rush Limbaugh sentiment that CONSERVATIVE = GOOD and LIBERAL = BAD in ALL cases, that liberals are the root of all evil. (maybe he's changed over the years, it's been awhile but that's what I remember; all the faults of the world could be laid at the doors of liberals when I used to listen to him).

    As there has been plenty of liberal bashing already, let me say that the Taliban are conservative. Hitler was conservative. And no, I don't agree that LIBERAL = GOOD and CONSERVATIVE = BAD. I just hear more of that from the right than from the left (you guys have more angry spokespeople). There are lots of evil liberals and lots of evil conservatives. There are lots of evil people who don't fit any label. BUT EVEN MORE IMPORTANT, the people of goodwill outweigh the evil people no matter what label you stick on 'em.

    I am tired of polarity. Seems to me that having only two answers to many questions (good or bad, black or white, right or wrong) just doesn't fit. There has to be room for "maybe", or "yes and no", or "yes when y=x and no when x=y" or whatever. We should be looking for creative solutions to our complex problems.

    I do not believe that life is black and white (as comforting and easy as that would be, and believe me, I wish it were), it is not even limited to shades of gray, it is all the colors of the rainbow.

    I guess you can tell that I was a middle child and a peacemaker.

    And maybe I think too much...
