1) What happens between religious schools k-12 and college? Seriously, the catholic schools I went to and that my siblings go to are fantastic. I got the best education possible while still in a church school. Why is it that religious universities are generally terrible?

2) from an OBJECTIVE standpoint, how do you know Christianity is correct? I took a comparative religious course in school and there are lots of religions and each of their mythologies hold the same OBJECTIVE merit. Some are better, I happen to like Buddhist philosophy a lot. Is it the age of the scripture? I would like clarification.

1) don't know.

2) Your question is contradictory. Any Christian who "knows" its correct isn't going to be "objective". Don't look for water in the desert.

RE: A few questions
Where I live (the San Francisco Bay Area) the local catholic universities (St. Mary's, USF and Santa Clara) are all quite good. There are some small more fundamentalist institutions that I suspect are not much. I think the characterization that all religious universities are bad is a bit harsh.

The 1951 USF football team was undefeated but when invited to a bowl game refused because a condition of their invitation was that they leave two of their best players behind because those players were african-american. Those players were Ollie Matson who any football fan here over 50 should know and Burl Toler long time NFL ref.

I would also point out that the 2 best players on the USF basketball teams that won back to back NCAA championships in 1955-56 were also african-american.

One should be careful about how one characterizes things.
