Three More Things Only a PhD Can Believe
In an earlier essay in Salvo (Three Things Only a PhD Can Believe, Spring 2013), I argued that there are three things that are so patently absurd and demonstrably false—that so violate objective observation, common sense, and the collective experience of mankind—that only a PhD could believe them. I identified those three absurdities as the all-too-common academic beliefs that there are no universal standards, that there are no essential differences between men and women, and that there is no clear dividing line between humans and animals.
