    People with faith in religion pay via tithe.

    People with faith in man’s theories, and speculation on how everything came to be- pay via student loans.

    I see no difference. Everybody is getting what they want right? Why does it bother you so much? I don’t see anybody involved in religion continuously knocking higher education for peddling their faith.

      John,

      Higher education is based on the opposite principle: do not just believe — identify reasons to doubt, then study to resolve the doubt where possible.

    Good countries have free education. In the USA, public colleges and universities were almost free in the 1960s.
    I studied at one. The USA has gone far downhill since then. Partly because the students are too timid to say no.
