    It doesn't take years to realize that...

    Anthropology is nice tho.. Sentinelese tribe is interesting to say the least ... I suppose you just learned something new?

    Sentinelese people - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Now please psychoanalyze me...
    I already have.

    Meanwhile, like I say, professors can't "suspend" college students, so somebody floated a fake story (probably the obstreperous student).

    In any case, the exercise made its point. Some people (conservatives and fundies) think a name on a piece of paper is person -- how does one explain that level of delusion?

    You may as well attempt to instruct a progressive to say something negative about Obama - they wont and will bash Bush... To a progressive Jesus didn't exist or is some sort of horrible image of "white redneck culture."

    That's the way it is.
    So if I wrote " Obama" on a piece of paper and then " stepped on it" I would be a homophobic, xenophobic, racist, anti-semite, Muslim Hatin "Mericun" ?

    But stepping on a folded up piece of paper with the name " Jesus on it makes me thoughtful, educated and sophisticated.

    Got it.

    I would have just written Jesus on it and then added " Garcia" and that way I'm in the clear.

    Not necessarily. Even though the assignment should never have been in the first place does not automatically mean that the student didn't do something wrong. Not making a stand per se' on what happened. Just noting that you have a bad logic line going on here.

    As for me, had I been in that class, I would have said to the instructor, "I'll write 'Jesus' on a piece of paper and grind it under my heal, and even put it up on YouTube, if you first throw a Koran on the floor and grind it under your heal and put it up on YouTube."

    Then you personally wouldn't have a problem stepping on a piece of paper PUBLICLY with the name Muhammed written on it ?

    The fact that this story got into the rightwing blogosphere, in a garbled fashion of course (that's the only way the rightwing noise machine works) is because it's being used as part of the conservative attack on liberal education, academic freedom, and intellectual inquiry.

    The right deeply hates America's colleges and the freedom on inquiry they uphold, so it is part of the rightwing agenda to attack and destroy academic freedom. That's why the leeched onto this "story". And in fact, that's the real story -- the continuing rightwing attack on academic freedom. The boy who thought a piece of paper was really Jesus needs to grow up.

    Nope. I'd even step on a piece of paper with FENTON on it. But it's telling that you'd ask.

    Poor conservatives: they can't seem to tell the difference between words and things.

    Did you have an issue with the Muslims who got in an uproar over the artist that did a carticure (sp) of Muhammed?

    College professors are always coming up with "controversial" experiments: The question here is whether stepping on the written word "Jesus" is officially considered a form of religious desecration within the said student's form of Christianity...............

    Yeah, they're stupid. Why do you ask?
