Ruminations of the Easily Amused for 9/8/2016

8 September 2016 at 5:05:39 PM

Some days I feel like no matter how old I get, I'm still pretty naive. I guess I need protection from con artists:) I was talking to my grand uncle who is dang sharp for being the age he is, and he was conned recently. I think it comes from expecting the best out of people and having cognitive dissonance when you realize some aren't as ethical as what they profess to be. 

I saw something on the internet the other day that my Dad wrote to Baylor magazine. He and my mom (and my sister) went to Baylor University in Waco and he must have kept up on reading the articles in the alumni magazine. Warmed my heart to see his comments. 

I thought about watching the CIC debate last night but I SOOOO don't like either one of the candidates that I didn't want to waste my time. 

Record numbers of Danes leave Church amid atheist campaign

A large advertising campaign encouraged Danish people to consider why they believe in God and why they had to pay church taxes, around £15,000 in the average person's lifetime.

The group also created a website that gave easy instructions on how to leave the church.

To leave Danes must submit a written application.

David Barton caught in lie about his *doctorates*. (Video on link)

But Throckmorton points out some pretty large problems:

The requirements say that a student must first get a masters and DMin to go for the PhD. Did Barton do that? He has never said he had anything other than a BA from ORU.


The school is not accredited by a regional accrediting body which is perhaps why he didn’t name it in his video.

The school isn’t accredited! Barton’s Ph.D. might as well have been from Trump University.

No wonder he’s so damn confused every time he talks about it. He has a “real” degree from a fake school. It means absolutely nothing.

You know what’s really sad? Life Christian University doesn’t even list Barton on their page of “distinguished degree holders.” When you’re not even good enough to make a fake school’s list of successful graduates, it’s time to find a new career.
