The whole premise is idiotic. An atheist is not going to declare that "God is Dead". An atheist is more likely to say "God Doesn't Exist, and Never Did". It's not like atheists think there was a God but there isn't now; they believe (and, for the record, I'm not an atheist) that the very idea of God is, and has always been, a matter of fiction. I have never in my life met a professor who tried to force their students to declare religious inclinations one way or another, and most are more than likely going to avoid the topic altogether because it's an absolute conversation killer and will derail all attempts to talk about anything else.
What I have encountered is Christian students (and professors) who feel the need to interject their religious doctrine into every single discussion, every class, every topic, and if anyone so much as rolls their eyes that student will decide that they are being persecuted for their beliefs.
So, yeah. No thanks. If I want to know about the travails of campus Christians, I'll finally accept one of the pamphlets the praise groups incessantly shove in everyone's faces every time I try to get from one building to another.
Related to lie: certainty, belief, interest, ideological paradigmatic bias or phillosophical assumptions...
From 'simplification' the general public have the impression that science can give knowledge of all and everything, which of course is impossible for epistemologic reasons. It can only describe sensible or measurable things and interpret them according to some philosophical worldview.
I think reality is beyond the current scientific and philosophical paradigms and methods. We are using just what is 'pratical' and works for the moment. And this has social and human consequences.
45:15 is how I react to badly written student papers about the Greek Tragedies. ^_^
