As students start returning from holidays and preparing for their class registration, they have been presented with a new set of terms and conditions from the QUT administrations. Like most terms and conditions, many students would have clicked accept and moved on without reading it; not this time. These terms and conditions are QUT’s liability waiver and have caused a stir with students of QUT, bringing up the age-old debate: Is there a God? Signs point to QUT having proof that it’s a yes.
These T&Cs, seemingly in response to the absolute hellfire that was Semesters 1 and 2 of 2020, are definitely comprehensive. Indemnifying themselves from pandemic outbreaks comes as no surprise, however, the terms get more and more extreme as you read along. Inadvertently, by including ‘acts of God,’ QUT has implied through these terms and conditions that a God indeed exists.
Considering that QUT decided that ‘acts of God’ need to be included alongside issues such as pandemics, natural disasters, strikes and technology hacking, it appears that QUT is trying to cover every single base imaginable for the upcoming semester, including the end of times and the rapture. This begs the following questions:
- What does QUT know about the existence of a God?
- Which God are they referring to?
- What does this potential God have planned for QUT?
- Why would QUT involve themselves in such a profound theological discussion?
Regardless of what you believe, it is nice to see QUT being prepared for something. It would be nicer to see QUT be prepared for things other than acts of God, such as preparing reasonable class times for class registration or preparing information on the massive merge of faculties that no one seems to understand, but beggars can’t be choosers.
More to come.
Note: Dear Law Students, I know what a force majeure is. Please enjoy the joke.
