Me: Or, do you plan on attending a college that will coddle your biases?
Him: Well, I do plan to get my degree in philosophy and theology. I feel like I’ve been called to the field of apologetics, and so I’m just waiting to see what the Lord does from there :] (read here)
I was oblivious to this response when I drafted the original post. It doesn’t surprise me that I was right. However, I am appalled; I detest the fact that there are ways of earning degrees in pseudo-intellectual garbage. Theology should be the study of gods and not the study of one god — the Judeo-Christian god in particular; philosophy should be the study of ethics, logic, reality, existence and the contributions of the many philosophical thinkers in history. Unfortunately, both terms can be conflated with apologetics. Apologetics isn’t a field; it’s fraud to the highest degree. In any case, I accused him of being dishonest and disinterested in truth; let the evidence speak for itself.
