If you call yourself an "agnostic theist" you are NOT a "theist", and if you call yourself an "agnostic atheist" you are NOT an "atheist". All the inaccurate, amateur, dictionary definitions you can quote DON'T alter these facts. Have I now educated you?

  • Im considering dropping out of college. Advice?

    I'm currently in my second year at a local community college with at least (and hopefully) 1 more year to go. I'm at a moment in my educational journey where I'm just stuck. I have absolutely no idea what I want to do with my life (and I'm very indecisive, which doesn't help). My current major is mechanical engineering. I picked that cause I heard it was a good undergrad degree for biomedical engineering, which was my ultimate career goal. However, here I am about to flunk 1st semester physics for engineering, and having already failed 1st semester Gen. Chemistry... TWICE... Yeah. I know I should maybe just change majors, but TO WHAT? I've gone to career counseling before and I got recommended to STEM-like majors and careers. I've also considered business, but I don't think I have the interpersonal skills to do that. I've considered the medical field (maybe PT or PA) but I'm not sure if I'm emotionally equipped and personable enough to handle working with sick and dying patients. (I'm not really a people person). At this point, I'm asking myself why am I even in college? I have no real talents, horrible work ethic (which could explain the failures), and an indecisive mind. If I do end up dropping, it would only be for a short while (hopefully) to figure myself out. But i was hoping to get some advice on how I can overcome this funk that I'm experiencing.

  • Why can't creationists understand a scientific theory is the same thing as a fact?

    Best answer: The word "theory" means a supposition based on facts as known at a certain point in time.

    Indeed the theory of the creation of the universe 13.5 billion years ago, and its subsequent development, is backed up by overwhelming evidence, according to all rational scientists.

    The story of "Creation" as in the Christian Bible (assumed to have taken place about 8,000 years ago) is one of many stories of the origins of the world, and life, etc which exist in almost all early societies.

  • How do college majors and minors work?

    Best answer: Majors and minors are the subject areas in which you've chosen to specialize. That is, the majority of your courses are in your major and minor subject(s). So, this means that at least 10 classes (above the intro level) must be taken in your major subject and at least five classes (at any level) should be... show more
    Best answer: Majors and minors are the subject areas in which you've chosen to specialize. That is, the majority of your courses are in your major and minor subject(s).

    So, this means that at least 10 classes (above the intro level) must be taken in your major subject and at least five classes (at any level) should be taken in your minor subject.

    Your major and minor do not have to be related, but since you only have about eight "free" classes (classes that you can choose to take outside of your major and CORE requirements), most people choose a minor that is somewhat related to their major. For example, one of my undergrad majors required four Physics classes so I added a Physics minor since I only needed one more class to qualify.

    To get a degree, you must declare a major, but a minor is completely optional (or, for some majors, unavailable). With that said, you do not have to declare a major or minor when applying to college. Knowing your major certainly helps as
    (1) knowing what you want to study can help you write a good essay (the essay can sometimes be the difference between admission and wait listing); and
    (2) admission officers want to admit students with the greatest probability of success. They try to fill their incoming classes with more future MDs, PhDs, JDs and CEOs than "professional students" who spend 10+ years primarily smoking weed in their room at the frat house.

    In fact, if you look at admission stats for prior years, you'll often find a decent number of "undeclared" majors. But those are usually recruited athletes and/or "Pre-Law" students.

    Note that "Pre-Med" and "Pre-Law" are not majors or minors. They are programs (apart from your major) for student who want to apply to medical school or law school after graduation.

    Best answer: I don't think it's a bad question, although it could be worded better. I believe my congenital hearing loss has made me *seem* somewhat retarded, even though I have rather high IQ. I mean, communication is normally so effortless and instantaneous for people with normal hearing, whereas for me, there is often a slight delay while my brain tries to fill in the parts of speech I couldn't hear clearly (consonants - which tend to be high pitched, and difficult for me to distinguish) based on what I did hear (vowels - which are deeper in tone, and I can hear pretty clearly). This delay is very awkward, and actually I usually have to ask people to repeat themselves once or twice, which is even more awkward. I don't actually know if people regard me as retarded, but I sure as hell FEEL retarded. It's utterly horrible! You have no idea. Pack your ears with cotton sometime and go out into the world - maybe you'll get a tiny idea of what my whole life has been like.
