CHANCELLOR | The Godless College

You in all probability don’t bear in mind the opening scene of the film God’s Not Lifeless — made by Pinnacle Peak Photos, a Christian manufacturing firm. Within the scene, a philosophy professor stands earlier than his new class of scholars and quotes the German thinker Friedrich Nietzche’s well-known thesis, “God is lifeless.” The professor then tries to get every scholar to agree with the assertion so the category doesn’t need to waste time fascinated with God. A Christian scholar then refuses to adjust to the professor, and the remainder of the film ensues. I like to recommend watching the film — I loved it — however alas, this isn’t a movie evaluation. 

Whereas the opening scene is definitely dramatic, and lots of would even say unrealistic, it really depicts a extra pernicious actuality for the fashionable Christian and schooling on the whole. The fact is that the fashionable college has accepted the premise that God is lifeless, however not in some flashy manner like writing it on a chalkboard or with a lot fanfare; they only act in keeping with the premise. Regardless of this acceptance, if the college system introduced that it might proceed in accordance with the framework of God being lifeless, it might be met with a surreal quantity of backlash. Whereas the nation might not be as Christian as when the Pilgrims first arrived, 7 in 10 People nonetheless establish as Christians. The college might need to be a metropolis on a hill, free from the dogma of faith, however the remainder of the nation sees that metropolis extra like Mordor than one thing to emulate. 

To keep away from this backlash from the fashionable sciences and humanities, together with philosophy, simply keep away from the subject of God altogether. I’m on my third philosophy course right here at Cornell and have taken programs on morality and am at present enrolled in a course on social and political philosophy; I don’t consider I’ve noticed the thought of God being mentioned in course supplies, except snickers from ethical relativists depend. God has been phased out of the college, regulated to Sage Chapel and a few rooms in Anabel Taylor Corridor, stored removed from the place the true mental pursuits happen. If a scholar lastly decides to ask how a sure concept relates again to any faith, the query is normally adopted by an ungainly interval of silence. Since God has been taken out of the college, most in academia don’t even spend time considering how sure concepts work together with perception in God.
