There has been a very long war between science and religion over the past centuries. This war has split the world in to 2 halves,people who believed that science is more legit while others believed otherwise..This is absolutely normal for me...everyone should think of whatever they want to think of..we are all different and we all have a specific way of thinking...But the thing is...Is it normal to have contradicted ways of thinking?? Let me give you all an example,in one of the lectures of scientific thinking,the professor was explaining Darwin's theory of evolution and after he finished,he simply said that his theory is absolutely wrong..One of my friends stood up and asked.."why?" he simply replied "because it is" 

     After the lecture, he went to the professor asking him to explain in more details why he said that the theory of evolution is pointless...he replied that Adam and Eve are the beginning of humanity and kept giving religious arguments and that's perfectly fine for me....but the question is....Why did that professor spent years and years trying to get a PHD in something he never believed in.....and the way he argued with the student was not scientific at all! it was absolutely blind!

     Who should we blame now? religion for making people have a contradicting way of thinking? or society that forces everyone to think in a way they do not wanna think in?

The professor does not understand the Theory of Evolution. He is an embarrassment to the teaching profession.

Exactly! the way he argued was also very...childish and does not fit a university professor...welcome to the islamic world haha!

Unfortunately it is not just "teachers" in the Islamic world that think like that. There are many colleges in the USA and Europe where Christians (and some Muslims) teach EXACTLY the same thing. I debated some Muslims on recently and they use the very same arguments as Christians do.

"why?" he simply replied "because it is"

- the professor's a fool.  But I guess he's only thinking what society tells him to think.  Which makes him a fool all over again.

As I said..I have no problem that he sticks to his religious ideology..but what pisses me off.that he spent so many years studying a science opposing his religion lol!

I would probably file a complaint with the department head, especially if he's in any of the sciences departments. I guess I can give him a pass if he's in a department like philosophy or theology or similar, and was teaching something like a "stoopid religious studies" class or related.

Oh man, look at the muppets you have to deal with.  This is where "thinking for yourself and not accepting bullshit" comes into its own.

The fear of God instilled by the Catholic Church in the first millenium was so pervasive that, to this day, even our most secular institutions are too timid to confront it forcefully.  The American public school system is, by virtue of the constitutional ban on governmental entanglement in religion not allowed to proselytize on behalf of religion.  But it should be free to teach science and reason in a manner that exposes the truth: that all religion is complete hokum.  But the long-standing, endemic fear of religious orthodoxy in this country prevents any direct opposition to the ignorance of religion being taught in schools.

So I put the most blame on the public school system, which should be in the business of truth telling, but is too cowardly to do it.
