    Default Stephen Prothero - my new religion professor

    The class I'm taking with him in the fall is called: Death and Immortality

    Course Description:
    Examines death as religious traditions have attempted to accept, defeat, deny, or transcend it. Do we have souls? Do they reincarnate? Other topics include cremation, ancestor worship, apocalypse, alchemy, AIDS, near-death experiences, otherworld cosmologies.

    This is him:

    This is his website:

    Here's his interview on the Daily Show:

    Here's him on Oprah:

    Here's him on the Tavis Smiley show:

    So far I'm thinking Gamma NT, what do you think?

    Still seems Delta rational.

    Se PoLR, most likely. Weak Se in any case. If he is Gamma NT, he seriously needs someone to kick his ass.

    But I highly doubt that such is the case. He's probably LII.

    No, because of what he's saying about it. And how he's saying it.

    EII is more likely. He has a greater concern for -valuing and increasing matters of awareness of affairs.

    It's not something I"m going to be able to articulate for the purposes of this conversation.

    Perhaps not, but I would be interested in hearing it either here or maybe in PM. I do not agree with him wholeheartedly, but I am puzzled as to why you would be horrified by his suggestion that people should be better educated about the world.

    I guess the problem is right there.

    That people should be better educated? You will have to clarify what you find to be at stake instead of just dancing around the issue.

    I do find your reaction rather humorous though, especially after your "I'm thinking Gamma NT" for your professor. That is no reason to dispair or go into the course already dreading it or with a resistant attitude about learning anything from the professor.
