I’m Dave Baggett, philosophy professor at Liberty University. I’m heartsick over the potential loss of the philosophy department at Cedarville. As a philosophy prof at a fellow evangelical university, I am horribly concerned over the message this sends. It is the completely wrong message. This is a time for evangelical Christian institutions of higher learning to be more committed than ever to reverse the popular picture of evangelicals an anti-intellectual. Removing a philosophy department will only reinforce the worst stereotypes of Christians as uninterested in the life of the mind. Cedarville prides itself on promoting a Christian worldview, but nearly every fundamental question a worldview answers—What is real? How is knowledge possible? What is right and wrong?—is philosophical in nature. C. S. Lewis once said we need good philosophy if only to answer all the bad philosophy out there. I sincerely hope and pray that Cedarville not do this. It would be devastating. I would implore Cedarville not to do this.
