    fucktard I have no problem learning new information. What I have a problem with is when a teacher stands up there and spouts bullshit like it's the truth. Bullshit like "40 million Indians were killed by settlers, it's the same thing as the Holocaust" that is a wholesale lie.

    So you advocate the teaching of false information to students because the information fits some pre-defined agenda?

    I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.

    Does the fact that a LIE is being taught as fact bother you???

    You should have wrote false and a paragraph justifying this position. Many professors will accept this, they prefer confrontational students they disagree with who are willing to engage in arguments than students who just don't care.

    does talking about a theory = being a big proponent of a theory?

    no, but when she said that when she was writing her doctoral thesis and she said she was a conflict theorist and her instructor was a functionalist....it really apparent what she is
