  •  You mean a chemistry degree from bob jones is (0+ / 0-)

    just as good as a chemistry degree from a legitimate university?

    •  What are talking about? (0+ / 0-)
      Koch, who holds bachelor's and master's degrees in chemical engineering from MIT, is an executive vice president and board member of Koch Industries.
      M.I.T.

      We were talking about David Koch specifically and assumptions about specific academics in particular.

      What does Bob Jones University have to do with anything? Unless you're equating that institution to  MIT?

        dynamic here at the Kos.

        And honestly, holding Koch up as an example of what?

        So he has a chemistry degree, and yet he bank rolls climate change denial among other things. Things that are known even amongst us peons to be bad for people and for the environment. Air Pollution, water pollution, soil pollution, carcinogens, endocrine disruptors and everything else that create countless health problems for real live Americans and directly impact our environment including but not limited to our wild spaces.

        When you see criticism like that of people who SHOULD KNOW BETTER--that's not criticizing Science, that's criticizing ethics and a substandard regulations.

        I don't give a flying fuck how many degrees a person has or from what prestigious university either. It won't buy them a soul, and it will not bestow upon them ethics or morals, or the ability to sympathize with their fellow humans.

        You want me to sing the praises of the Scientific Method, I can do that all day. But I will not bow and scrape at the feet of a tin god just because of a science degree, especially when that petty despot is fouling our entire country and planet with his hubris driven greed.
