Where the instructor can jot his thoughts down...
That's a bit of an overly biased view of America, no? Even facts have great bias to them as they result in accepting a certain worldview of cognition (with the irony, of course, being that the term "worldview" is itself trapped in a worldview of cognition). Facts are incapable of standing alone, and have embedded meanings. As we move to a better self-understanding through Charles Taylor's "social-imaginary" we can see that it is what we do with these so-called facts that says more about us than what we think about them.Or something like that.
True, except if you're watching Fox News. They use facts to confound other facts.
But isn't that like blaming Canada for Don Cherry?
When you talk about facts, scientific facts are to be considered always. but that doesn't mean religious facts should be taken for granted.
