My first day in "Religion in America" class.

Please note, I'm not trying to say that this guy bothered me personally. I really enjoyed being able to banter back and forth in front of an obviously impressionable audience about evidence for evolution... I just wanted to point out the double standard. Religious people are allowed to do it, but atheists are not?

I just started an Ethics class this week. Today, after asking for student opinions on the essence of morality, the professor delved off into a discussion of how people view God. I cannot be exactly certain that he himself believes in God, but his speech was peppered with enough "He" and "Him" that I fear I may be in for an interesting semester. I guess I was just a bit put-off that it sounded like the belief in God was just an assumed basis. However, it was only the first lecture and he did not make any outright declarations; I probably should not just jump to assumptions myself.

I actually encountered the same thing a few years ago with a philosophy professor at my local community college. He did not understand evolution very well, and neither did the class, so he decided to spend some time trying to mock the theory of evolution. After the onslaught of straw-men, he points to intelligent design as "Evolution With a Designer/Planner", which sounded ridiculous since he just spent some time mocking it. Thank you for the video about that, I have NEVER encountered the atheist instructor doing the opposite, only the christian ones...Thanks
