Scientific Research & Self-Development Activism
I had another fun day in my philosophy class this evening as we discussed religion for the main topic, specifically the Christian philosopher Augustine. The instructor brought up the classic problem of evil and the paradox that ensues with the Christian god in such a world. The best part is one of the guys in class, some redneck marine, who claimed to believe in god said god was a jerk for not preventing evil.
Before class though I turned in my two papers and received the paper I turned in from the previous class. I got an 8.5/10 on it but the instructor noted that I didn't write about the reading material we are supposed to do outside of class. I didn't write about the reading material on the two papers I turned in so after class I spoke to him about it and he said I needed to fix it. So for next week I'll need to write 3 papers. When leaving class I made small talk with a classmate and he mentioned that he was writing about the discussions in class as well and the instructor was accepting his work. This caused me some confusion so I emailed the instructor tonight. I'm hoping to hear back from him tomorrow so we can meet in person to discuss this.
A cool thing about the guy I talked to after class about the papers was that he was a bass player of ten years and he agreed that we should get together so he could show me a thing or two about it. :)
