What the Class of 2012 Has Always Thought

Today begins a new school year at Sterling College and today I start teaching RP 102-- Old Testament Introduction. All my spare moments, and then some, have been used preparing for this class, so I'm glad the starting gate is opening.

So what does an 18 year old, first time college student believe? Beloit College has issued their annual "mindset list" of what these students have always assumed and seen. The list is insightful and funny.

My favorites:
# 25 There have always been gay rabbis.
# 26 Wayne Newton has never had a mustache.
# 54 The Hubble Space Telescope has always been eavesdropping on the heavens.

The entire list is here.
