Intriguing religion classes offered at SCC

Written by 

Everything from the authors of the Bible to religious extremism will be covered in two upcoming courses at Southwestern Community College.

“Who Wrote the Bible,” held 4 to 5 p.m. Tuesdays from Sept. 7 to Oct. 26 at the Jackson Campus. The class will cover archeological discoveries and the translation of newly-discovered languages that have altered perspectives on the Bible’s origins. Students will examine these changes and learn what they mean for people of faith across several religious traditions. The cost is $40.

The second course, “Religious Extremism: From Faith to Fanaticism,” will be held from 10 a.m. until noon on Tuesday, Oct. 12, at Southwestern’s Cashiers Center. The cost is $20.

“What is it that makes a person go from religion to aggression, even extremism, and how can this problem be addressed? That’s the main focus of this two-hour course,” said instructor Nicholas Altman.

Shouldn’t have overindulged in the libations of Friday night, nor said the things I now regretted to my girlfriend.
