    No. I was fortunate to have an intelligent and educated parent that picked up the slack. I went to a 3 schools, 2 of which were some of the best in the country in their respective categories (public and private). Both garbage.

    What is taught is largely nonsense, which I guess explains your own anti-science attitude.

    this is probably very close to truth

    why make 45k and deal with all the crap?

    maybe when i retire in a few years, i will teach a course or two at the community college

    at least i know those people WANT to be there

    Ok then. Maybe I just don't swallow things that have been known to be factually wrong for centuries just become dogmatists want to live in an alternate reality.

    In the absence of any real data, I default to an answer of "who knows?". Mostly this thread is, and will continue to be, that the education system is left or right of where the poster am, so therefore it is run by those opposite of the poster.

    Modern liberalism rejects, to one degree or another, the competence and sovereignty of the common man and subordinates him to the will of governments run by liberal elites. The western world's twentieth century capitulation to this philosophy is obvious--and the implications for liberty are ominous. But the history of the world also documents the heroic struggles of human beings to escape from tyrannies of all types, whether imposed by the brute force and declared entitlement of a dictator, or falsely justified by economic, religious or political sophistries. The science fiction of Marxian economic evolution, the grandiose fantasy of a New World Order, the utopian dreams of The Great Society, the myth of the divine emperor, have all had their turns on center stage in irrational man's attempts to legitimize government control and deny individual liberty.

    i would hope students take information from both sides and process it.....and come up with their own beliefs

    do i think that happens? not really....at least for the majority of students
    I think the reason we see a lot of liberalism in academia is because the majority of professors don't have to live in the real world, they get to live in that liberal cocoon where money magically appears in their bank accounts from state money or federal loans and because they have tenure, they have no reason to care about what they do. They can't get fired except under the most heinous circumstances. Personal and financial responsibility means nothing to them and they can live in a liberal fantasy land forever.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
