The Morris Theater is showing God’s Not Dead tomorrow at 7, and I have to go for multiple reasons. I want to find out how philosophy teaching works. From the trailer, it sounds like philosophers simply tell all their students what the answer is, and order them to write down the words verbatim in their exams. I’m really curious to see how effective that is, since it would make my teaching so much simpler.
I’m also curious to watch the audience. Maybe we’ll all be looking at each other, thinking “Oh, you’re the kind of idiot who goes to these things. Heh, heh, heh.”
I’ll be killing time, too, until it gets dark enough to drive a few miles out of town and
bury the bodies under cloak of darkness I mean, watch the reputed meteor shower that evening.
Anyone else in the Morris area going? We could pick up the latest hot tips in college pedagogy.
Oh, never mind — nobody in Stevens County reads this weird blog.
