It’s not you, it’s me!

Spring at Young Harris College

Who does not know this line?  Well today I used it when I was advising my Honors Philosophy teacher that I would be dropping his class.  Afterwards, as I sat in my car and looked at the recent “bad” test grade I received, I thought about what I said to him and cringed.  What the heck?  I was not breaking up with the dude, I was only trying to let him know that my head is for History, and can not fathom the greater theory of why God exist and why the universe came into being.  The Uncaused and Caused refused to become known in my thinking procedures, and unfortunately that grade {yikes} I saw today, was a clear indication of that very revelation.

It’s not you, it’s me!

Dr. Jamie Watson is a great teacher, and there are many students who excel in his class.  I am not one of these.  I remember back in the day, I did try to take this philosophy at LSU, and I dropped it then.  Looking back at the start of the  semester, when I registered, I had my doubts then and should have taken the world religion class.

It’s not you, it’s me!

I explained briefly to Dr. Watson, that my head was the issue, not his teaching methods.  Actually he is very well spoken when it comes to Descartes’ Meditations 1 through 4, and The Kalam Cosmological Argument as presented by William Lane Craig.  It’s just my head does not want to understand, wholeheartedly, the theory of Hilbert’s Hotel, and why there will always be vacancies even though the rooms are full, and the guest count remains the same, whether someone checks in or checks out.

It’s not you, it’s me!

I pondered, to be quite frank, as to why we really need this type of class as one of our “core” classes.  Do we really need to know how the universe came into existence?  Would it be so bad if we just believe that the all-powerful God, burst this universe into existence one fateful day? Or that perhaps, we are just one big dream, and our lives are intertwined into a reality like that of the Matrix? Would we really want to wake up?  I am one for believing our lives progress through a series of steps, and God lets us live through each one just to see what we are made up, and what type of fortitude we have towards adversity.  Whether we get to move on to the next plane of existence depends on the lessons we learn this go around.  Maybe we will all be here for a while.

Hmmm.  Well, it’s not you, it’s me.

  1. Constance, I love your writing voice. Very natural and the content is relevant and interesting. I can so relate to the experience you have with your Phil prof. I am finishing up the last few months of a degree at Kennesaw State and have learned tons about my abilities and preferences for courses, people, profs and interests. I love that line…It’s not you, it’s me! Keep blogging. Gr8 to have you in the tribe. 🙂
