use something like:
(setq auto-mode-alist (cons '("\\.c$" . text-mode) auto-mode-alist))

so that visiting *.c files will land you in text-mode.

Ok, I'll try that.  Can you tell me why these...

(setq inhibit-default-init 't)
(setq-default default-major-mode 'text-mode)


... didn't stop this auto-file-association from happening?  I basically
don't want emacs to do any junk like that, I'm not interested in its
assumptions, I'm after basic editting functions,


Leave default-major-mode as is (fundamental-mode).  Instead:

(setq auto-mode-alist '()
      interpreter-mode-alist '())

rather than by
default being launched into its weird ideas of what C code should
look like (which is probably a style used by less than 10% of
C programmers).

Weird is in the eye of the beholder.
