A furly odd occurance today. I went to my new job (making sandwiches at the campus cafeteria) a few hours earlier today to take in my first Geology Club meeting and do some power schmoozing. After the Club's meeting, there was about an hour before I had to go to work. So, there I was, hanging out on the commons when I noticed a fairly large group of students clustered around someone speaking. Sort of. I got closer and ended up actually participating.
It was this cat.
Straw men, evidentiary double standards, misidentification, historical revisionism, you name it, he spewed it. If a question was too difficult, he danced around it. Thin-skinned and nervous as he spoke, he denounced everything he felt wasn't up to his biblical standard(s).
I lit into him on a number of issues, and I wasn't alone. He had little support, mostly people asking him to clarify his point(s).
He's a poor dancer, and came off as a total tard. He even said that Dawkins made himself look bad in Expelled. I about died with laughter at that one.
I will say that I developed a great deal of respect for the students at UWEC. They treated him with respect, for the most part, and yet engaged him on his inconsistencies and political obtuseness.
I guess school isn't just about book-learning. It was an interesting day today.
Otherwise, like you wrote, Lou; my days are beginning to blend together also. Second quiz tomorrow in Precalc.
I hope that all the other current students are having a good time and learning a lot, too!
