Hi everyone! In my western civilization class we are studying Jesus and his impact in history and reform. my professor is convinced that Jesus was born in December and the weather was warm/hot. I first tried to explain that not everyone celebrates the birth of Christ in December. he had an abnoxious answer for eveything I said. He said that December or January its the same thing. I also tried to explain to him that the weather here in december or january is not the same as it is in the middle east. He suggested "how much of a differnce could it be" I felt that he was very ignorent in his comentary and lacked facts. I didnt know how to react to his thoughtless remarks, so I kind of backed off.
Was this the right thing to do, speak up and let the facts be known and perhaps this can effect my final grade? Im sure alot of you college students out there have experienced the speaking of religion in your classes, I would really like to hear your opinion and advice if it were to come up again. thnks
