Fatheaded Ed gossips about himself: No degree
The National Center for Science Education is looking for someone to replace Nick Matzke as their public information director (Nick is going to Berkeley in the fall to do his PhD). . . . If I had a degree, I'd throw my hat into the ring . .
In this credentialist age, pontificating about legal and scientific subjects the way Ed does when one does not have even just a bachelor's degree is almost considered to be presumptuous. A psychology professor's explanation of why well-educated people tend to do better than poorly educated people on intelligence tests was, "you can't be a genius if you don't know anything," and that statement applies in spades to Ed.
Also, it looks like Darwinist Nick Matzke is doing the same thing that anti-Darwinist Jonathan Wells did -- going back to school to learn better ways of attacking the opposition.
