General Discussion / Re: Questions about getting a phd

Actually, I think the key to a PHD is to have some really interesting idea in the subject.  That's not as easy as it sounds.  A PHD really requires some new idea.  They don't hand them out for just taking lots of classes.

You learn stuff getting to your Masters.  You get the PHD for going beyond known learning to some strange idea and defending it.

I see Kevin Sorbo and Dean Kane, as two guys with the same second rate acting chops, and the same desperate attempt to use Christian B-Movies, to try to revive their careers.
Dean Cain?  The Superman TV show actor?

I guess you could say that my pull-no-punches, no bullshit, objective views of myself are a rejection of the notion of deluding myself. I do not comfort myself with lies about myself. I give myself absolutely no leeway, and no compliment whatsoever. I don't want to live lies. I don't want people telling me that I'm x good thing or have x talent when I clearly don't. Unfortunately, a strict adherence to the truth reveals that I am indeed ignorant, unattractive, undesirable, and a failure.

At 16, I was mowing army base grass at minimum wage.  On weekends I pumped gas at less than minimum wage.  At 18, I got myself into college and wasted all that money because political activism was a LOT more interesting.  But it got me a real job and I eventually went back to college and got my degree.  Not because it gained me anything at my job but because I WANTED IT!

I won't even bother to insult you.

Most shills work for free.  Like a woman who lays with a man, she isn't married to, yet doesn't take any money for it, is a dumb tart.

You assume women have sex only for money and the ones that don't are "dumb"?  What rock do you live under?  It must be a really whopping big one.

Oh, it's not schizophrenia, it's just the (mis)firings of a complex organ under powerful stress.  There's no pathology involved at all -- well, unless it's actually happening on one's deathbed, but then you've got much bigger problems than not thinking clearly.

The conscious brain resists death.  It will do almost anything to maintain itself.  It's what we ARE mostly (as humans) beyond being just apes.

What was considered religion in the past when the Judeo-Christian religions were gaining a foothold are considered mythology for a good reason.  One does not see Romans and Greeks attempting to still claim that their gods and goddesses are real; no, it has been reasonably accepted as mythology.  The Judeo-Christian trinity is stubborn, however, even though reason has veritably decreed their beliefs as mythology despite their fallible theistic Faith.

Full agreement there,  every millennia seems to have fewer deities.  Someday, there will be none and we will be free of this nonsense. 
Yeah .. you are more of a Washington DC Alphabet Agency Yellow Pages guy ;-)

Do you work at these nonsensical posts yourself, or do you subcontract someone?
I suspect that it has more to do with culture and the press than anything based on reality. In this country, US you can draw pictures of what you think Jesus looks like, you can publicly say it's all a load of shit and nothing will happen to you unless some nutcase takes offense and shoots you, but in many Muslim nations the same behavior might get your head chopped off so very few people are willing to say that they saw the profit in a dream or otherwise. Here you say it and you might just get on the front page of the newspaper and get 1000s of followers. Hell, find Jesus on a piece of toast and sell it on ebay..  Try selling big Mo on toast in Saudi Arabia and see where it gets you. I don't think it's going to fatten your wallet.

That's ONE reason why I'm posting from the US and not Saudi Arabia...  LOL!
