It's the new, new math — Course descriptions that include some gems as: "Students will examine the nature of God as they progress in their understanding of mathematics. Students will understand the absolute consistency of mathematical principles and know that God was the inventor of that consistency." Wow. Just wow. I think I saw God in the consistency of my fajita last night, too. (Thanks to goulo.)

God would not manifst Himself in the consistency of a fajita.

There are no fajitas mentioned anywhere in the Bible.



Some of the other course notes on that site are even more hilarious, in a deeply and abidingly scary way - learn a second language so you can praise God in it!
