I'm stuck taking a humanities class this semester (last class I need to take for this degree). My professor doesn't want me coming to class because I use science to back up my arguments and according to him it stymies the discussion because no one can refute it.I'd be happy to debate my scientific reasoning for what I'm saying but no one else in class seems to understand what I'm saying including the professor

BTW, he claims to be an Atheist.But he still thinks that things have merit if they evoke emotions even though they are illogical. I'm astounded that I'm being told that I'm not allowed to use science in a university graduate class.

I was able to stay out of huanities classes in my undergrad by taking studio art. The degree I'm wirking on ow is multidisciplinary and I have to take one. My opinion of humanities is even lower than it was in the past and I didn't think that was possible.
