What We Were Sold

What We Got Instead

Thanks, Rev Dr* King,
for your "legacy."

The National Holy Day is coming up on Monday, btw,
so prepare yourself for the outpourings.

*The dude plagiarized his PhD thesis.
(Do you think for one second that if ExC had done that on his PhD thesis,
he's still be Dr. ExC?
Yeah, right.
Equality for all.)

The bigger scandal is that those who study "Divinity" are called "Doctor" as if they were surgeons or even ordinary GPs; it's about five times harder to get into Harvard Medical School than Harvard Divinity School-even the admissions officers for "Divinity" programs themselves say that their candidates are "less academically prepared" than those for medical or even law schools. Yale, for example, accepts nearly 1/4 to 1/3 of applicants for its "Divinity" school.
Getting a PhD. in "Divinity" is like getting a PhD in Education; you don't have to deal with the day-to-day personal issues of fundraising and those with "issues" and you get more benefits and higher pay and shorter work terms and fewer off-duty calls on your time.

And how can anyone do "original and serious" work with the same 39 books of the Bible? Is there any topic that hasn't been picked to the marrow after, what, nearly 500 years of Protestants trying to get higher degrees? It would be amazing if they could find any PhD thesis without plagiarism and unconscious repetition and echoes of what others have said.

By that logic, none of the humanities should have doctoral degrees. Right?

And for most Christians, the Catholic and Orthodox who make up 2/3 of Christianity, the Bible has 72 books. More than enough to keep scholars busy.

For all his right-wing tendencies, Stan seems to have some anti-theistic tendencies.
