It is our job to seek discern-
ment and speak truth even if
it calls authority figures into
question. President Obama
is an intelligent and eloquent
man, but the fact that he deliv-
ers speeches better than any
other president in office dur-
ing my lifetime doesn't make
him righteous. Our roles as
students, missionaries, citi-
zens and leaders require more
than superficial popular opin-
ions. We must ask questions
and seek answers.

In a 2003 interview, MIT
Professor and Political Ana-
lyst Noam Chomsky discussed
popular opinion and propa-
ganda. When asked: How does
one recognize propaganda and
what are some techniques to
resist it? Chomsky replied,
"There are no techniques, just
ordinary common sense-
But," he continued, "You have
to be willing to develop an at-
titude of critical examination
toward whatever is presented

to you." Take the case of U.S.
military action in Iraq as an
example. "If you hear that Iraq
is a threat to our existence,"
Chomsky said, "But Kuwait
[its neighbor] doesn't seem to
regard it as a threat to its ex-
istence and nobody else in the^
world does, any sane person
will begin to ask, where is the

That must be our question:
Where is the evidence? We
must ask why with a desire for
deep justice and truth even if it
means embarrassment for be-
ing mistaken in the past. Take
Christopher Columbus, for ex-
ample, a celebrated hero of his-
tory with a pedestal in his own
right, his own holiday, and in
my family's hometown, a mu-
seum collection in his honor,
regalia from the World's Fair
in Chicago. The town itself is
even named Columbus in his
honor. Why? He discovered
America and braved the risk of
a flat earth in the name of ex-
ploration and treasure, right?
At least, that's what my ele-
mentary school textbooks had
to say. What about yours?

Maybe you already knew
this, but all of that first-dis-
covery-flat-earth stuff is the
makings of an episode of
Myth Busters for history ma-
jors. Now you're supposed to
ask: "Where's the evidence?"
To which I respond: Look up
Jeffrey Russel Baker's book
Inventing the Flat Earth:

Columbus and Modern His-
torians (remember to check
the footnotes). You'll find that
neither Columbus nor his con-
temporaries believed in a flat
earth, and the belief that they
did is the result of historians
revising history to discredit
Christian opposition to Dar-
winism. I mention Columbus
because he is a figure we are
familiar with, and our beliefs
about him and his achieve-
ments have been wrong and
resulted from teachers and an
educational system that we

Church leaders, professors,
politicians and journalists
present us with what they call
truth. By faith, the Spirit and
our God-given mental capac-
ity we are responsible for criti-
cally examining all such teach-
ings to discern truth from
error. We are responsible for
what we believe and how we
influence others. Just as Adam
and Eve's choice was their
own, they could not leave it
beside the coils of the serpent,
neither can we blame anyone
else if we are poor followers.
We are literate, so we should
read. We are privileged, so we
should give. We are enlight-
'ened, so we should lead. We
are empowered, so we should
follow. We are educated, so
we should reason and know

The hipp(i)est eateries in Chattanooga

Hippies are known for a lot
of things. Among the more ko-
sher legacies they left behind
are flower power, communal
living, idealism and tie-dyed
everything. Even if you don't
have any interest in dressing
like a hippie, you may want to
eat like one.

Although the hippie move-
ment died out quite some
time ago, hippie-themed
restaurants are alive and
well in the Chattanooga area.
Here's a brief overview of the
best. AIL four are reasonably
priced, casual' (obviously),
complete with retro-cool at-
mospheres and perfect for first
dates. So get out there and try
something new. Who knows,
you may find a new favorite
place to eat.

erd, Hixon and downtown)
attest to the deliciousness that
is Lupi's. Although they're pri-
marily known for calzones and
pizza (they have just about
every topping imaginable),
don't overlook the tasty appe-
tizers', Tike the bread loaf with
garlic dipping sauce and the
salads. Order at the counter
and don't expect to wait long
since they're usually pretty
quick with the service.

Mellow Mushroom Pizza

Don't worry mushroom-
haters, they have more to offer.
You can find them downtown
by the Tennessee Aquarium.
Although they're also known
for yummy pizza and calzones,
they offer an extensive appe-
tizer, salad and sandwich list

tempeh sandwich. Although
you often have to wait to be
seated, the servers are always
friendly and the decor is fun. .
Plus, they're open later than
most places (midnight on Sat-
urday) in case you're caught
off-guard with hunger pains.


The Yellow Deli

This is the closest you'll get
to an authentic hippie experi-
ence, hands down. The Yel-
low Deli is located on the UTC
campus and run by members
of the Twelve Tribes com-
munal religious movement.
The restaurant has very cool
decor and felt extremely cozy
and relaxing on the cold, rainy
day when I visited. The menu
consists mainly of sandwiches

Get your Green On



Vexation: My lack of
concentration. No, not
in class, in my cupboard.
Products that aren't con-
centrated use more packag-
ing materials, which means
more waste.

Implementation: Buy-
ing concentrated products,
such as laundry detergent
or juice. Ok, so you may not
buy a lot of juice to store in
your freezer, but laundry
detergent is something we
all buy on a regular basis.
Depending on how often
you do laundry, you can
go through the stuff pretty
quick ^ j\e containers it
comes in really add up. Just

think of how much space
your Tide gallon takes up in
the trash can.

Clarification: Although
the concentrated detergents
sometimes appear to cost a
bit more, they'll last two to
three times as long, which
will save you money in the
long run. It also helps to
be savvy when adding the
soap to your wash. You can
use a little less if you just go
ahead and dump the lid in
with the load. The wash will
get all the soap out and you
won't have to worry about
detergent dripping down
the sides of the container
when you put the lid back
on. I just hate that.
Tip and info from idealbite.com

the Twelve Tribes considers
the restaurant a ministry, the
servers don't try to. preach at
you. They're also open 24/5,
meaning 24 hours a day from
Sunday at 5 P-m- to Friday at
5 p.m. And you thought Steak
and Shake was your only
option at 3 a.m.

Hot Chocolatier

Although, they may not be
considered a hippie joint, they
use a lot of fresh ingredients
"and buy local as often as pos-
sible, which I think is pretty
groovy. Their grand opening
is Jan. 30 (see events at right),
so you can check them out this

Abusement P&rk triumphs over I Love Spiking

Linski Cherisol thinking it can't hfi tnn m ,,^ „„ ;j »«_„..„ . . . ' O

It truly was an evening to
•emember as Abusement Park
won it all in the coed volleyball
tournament hosted Saturday
night in the Hies P.E. Center.

The tournament started at

p.m. but didn't end until 4

m. This year's tournament
had six more teams than last
year's and was the reason for
the prolonged event.

*I was quite surprised but
more a little bit concerned,"
said Robbie Parrish, a junior

jious education major,
who just arrived from a tour
with the gymnastics team at
3:35 a.m. "But once I found
out that it was a tournament,
my fears wear calmed."

"Last year we went until
'one o'clock," said Mike Boyd,
director of intramurals. "I'm

thinking it can't be too much
farther," he said.

Boyd said single elimina-
tion until the semi's or finals
would correct the problem.
Some students left and came
back to play because of how
late it was.

"I'm just glad that it's over
because we've been here since
7:00 and now it's like 4:00
in the morning," said Gabriel
Trujillo, a junior theology
major. "It was a really good
win because the team that
we played was a really good

The smooth quickness and
combination of solid team-
work is what got Abusement
Park to outplay the strength
and strong spiking of Karlyn
Ramsey and Mark Knutson
from team I Love Spiking.

"We all worked really hard
and had a lot of teamwork,"

said Molli Paige, a freshman
chemistry major and captain
of Abusement Park. "Although
we had some tough times, we
pulled together and did a good

Even though many players
weren't as good as others, ev-
eryone seemed to have fun just
by playing with friends from
the opposite sex.

"Our name was the crazy
monkeys and that's what we
did. We acted like crazy mon-
keys," said Sean Stultz, a soph-
omore embedded systems ma-
jor. "We dove for the ball; we
flew for the ball, anything for
the ball. We might have not
gotten it, but we tried, and we
had fun doing it."

Southern had a lot of par-
ticipation in the tournament.
Like other new intramural
sports that have been intro-
duced this year, coed volley-

IBwdden, corporate well-

ness major. "He is not a bad
character, he is a stand up guy,
and if he doesn't want to play
than he doesn't have to play."

According to a story posted
on the Boston newspaper's
Web site Monday afternoon,
citing a source close to the
situation, the Celtics have
"absolutely no verbal commit-
ment" with Marbury despite
the two sides having talked,
and in spite of Boston's inter-
est in adding him, given ideal
conditions. So why is Stephen
Marbury plying basketball?

"At this -point they need to
just cut him or trade him" said
Sean Lemon, junior physical
therapy major. "It has become
a personal issue and its sup-
posed to be about business."

At Southern we play intra-
mural sports, which aren't
even considered competitive

sports at a collegiate level,
however that's not why we
play in the first place. We play
these sports because we love
them. Some students complain
about the referees, the sched-
ules and the lack of competi-
tion in the selection of sports
we offer. I'm sure we wouldn't
mind a $21 million paycheck
on the side, but the fact is that
we don't get paid for playing
intramurals, ESPN doesn't
cover our games and most
sports schools in the country
don't even know what South-
ern is. If you're not participat-
ing in intramurals for the love
of the game...why play?

"i play basketball for the
fun of it," said Tharea Lynch,
sophomore psychology major.

in the intramural line up just
because of its success on Sat-
urday night. If you would like
to see a sport implemented
into Southern's intramurals,
make sure you participate and
show your love for it, because

at Southern we play the sports
our students love.

Boyd said, "[Overall] we
had a great night of volleyball
and we've got some great vol-
leyball talent. Next year there
will definitely be a coed league
when we play intramurals."
