Wow. I just hope they're planning to teach the truth and not the myth.

That's kind of a catch-22. Either an academic institution teaches a bunch of stories, or they tell it straight and reinforce the notion that the "college elite" are indoctrinating our youth with their liberal, atheist agenda.

Do those people realize that actually reading the Bible might, you know, be a requirement of the class? Like they haven't bothered to read the inspired work of the Creator of the Universe until somebody makes it homework?

I would assume that's the point? I went through the free online lectures of an intro to the "old testament" from a professor at Yale. It was very interesting.

from the article:
Quote:The course explores the content of Paul's letters in the context of the Roman Empire, as well as the impact that they have on today's world. According to the syllabus, "The letters of Paul are the earliest texts in the Christian scriptures, written by a Jew at a time when the word 'Christian' hadn’t yet been coined. What is the religious and political context into which they emerged? How were they first interpreted? How and why do they make such an enormous impact in Christian communities and in politics today?"

One would think so and, from the description, it sounds that way. However, it depends on the point of view from which it will be taught and, to an extent, who is teaching it. The creation museum is also supposed to be a portrayal of "reality"...
