Jarod, above, travels from Fresno to join us and does a great job of including the Gospel into his conversations.
It is bothersome to hear students use careless arguments and statements against the truth of life in the womb. Here are a few we have to hear:
"A sperm goes up into the vagina and becomes a fetus."
"The brainstem does not even connect to the brain until 27 weeks."
"The brain doesn't even start working until the 12th week."
(I could argue some not until 30 years old, but seriously, brain waves are measurable at 40 days.)
"The doctor slaps the baby at birth to get the blood to begin flowing into the brain."
(I did wonder if the doctor forgot to slap that one.)
"Why are you people even here...we are educated students and you are uneducated."
"In ten years your generation will be gone and die off. Then we will be free from your old ideas and be able to do what we want."
(We heard this more than once.)
"I am a biology major and the heart does not start beating until the 16th week."
(I told her to Google it so she could find out that the baby's heart starts beating at 21 days. She reluctantly did and was not happy with what she found. She must not have been paying attention in Biology 101.)
These foolish statements by students give us an opportunity to direct them to truth and show them the trouble with being in a
government-controlled echo chamber, merely repeating what they heard...
although I can't believe some of these thoughts come from the classroom.
Some students take our correction well, while others struggle.
"The way of the fool is right in his own eyes; but he who listens to counsel is wise."
