" about the fact that he did his studies at OU? :) And Virginia Tech???? "

OU and Virginia Tech may not be Harvard, but US News and World Report has both of them in the second tier of national universities, which puts them both in the range of 50-100 among universities, so neither of them are exactly Podunk U. A bit of snobbishness showing here? Anyone who has a Ph.D. that didn't go to one of the top 50 schools has laughable qualifications? Seems to me there are very fine schools in that tier, including both our alma maters.

So, how were the academic standards at UT Austin? They were pretty high at SUNY Binghamton, where I got my degree.


ps: And what does it matter anyway? Why attack his qualifications? Last time I checked, Christ's academic qualifications were not particularly high either. Doesn't mean a thing about the truth of the teaching.
