For most young people just out of high school, college is a great time to redefine who you are and what you believe. Many are out from their parents’ direct authority and supervision for the first time. If they came from a household that was overly controlling, they may go hog wild and reject their parents’ value system in trying to define their own. I know, I was as wild as can be, sporting a mowhawk, and abusing just about any substance I could get my hands on.
But you know what I’m "concerned" about now? Since the state of Ohio is not allowing its students to critically examine evolution, I guess they have to take it on – well, faith. But what happens when they get to college and are presented with the "convincing" arguments of the ID and creationist folks? Will they be prepared? Or will they fall away from evolution in a burst of rebellious truth seeking? I think all of this fascist supression of dissent may backfire on the evolutionists.
I can hear the conversation now between the secularist parents. "Oh my god, Harold, our son has become a … a … creationist! He’s left his senses! When will he return to the truth?" "Don’t worry Maggie, I’m sure it’s just a phase he’s going through. He has to sow his wild oats, but he’ll grow up quick enough." LOL.
