I am so glad there are people on this campus that have brains:
I have argued this point against my father before, but he would always shoot it down with some stupid “no, christianity is right” argument. What? How the hell do you know? Your beliefs are not truth. For all we know Earth was seeded by an alien race! (Actually, new theories (and evidence? I don’t pay much attention to things) suggest that the seeds for life arrived on Earth via an asteroid (or would that be a meteor(ite?)?).)
..That was almost as bad as matching parantheses on a really ugly if statement with type-casting and function calls within function calls.
I highly suggest IIT students who can think on their own join the IIT Freethinkers group.
I am so glad Tim was not in the room when I read Sasha’s post… I shouted “THANK YOU!” and threw my hands at the screen as one would if someone were to say something they agreed wholeheartedly with (I hope that makes sense). I must’ve looked weird, talking and gesticulating at my laptop.
