This is exactly what happens when you send your kids off to college: if it works, they start thinking for themselves, develop surprising new opinions, and aren't afraid to share them with other people. Hooray for college students, some of my favorite people!
But I see the glass half empty. Why are there still religious idiots teaching in higher education? If the system is working, such creatures should have been disqualified for holding any responsible position because of their lack of ability to think for themselves and process facts based on evidence.
OK, I am a militant atheist.
