I don't see any significant flaws in my argument (we are not in court). You misunderstood my point and now keep nit-picking for some reason. Let me rephrase the sentence that seems to be bugging you - only pricks would call PhDs irrelevant since they (PhD holders) are responsible for most discoveries. Better wording now?
1. You - "Being called a Doctor as a Phd is something pretentious academics do to feel validation for their largely irrelevant lives."
2. Me - "should I even bother reminding you that PhDs are primarily responsible for most discoveries?""
3. You - "Your post implied that demanding to be called a doctor is ok because people with PhD's are responsible for a lot of discoveries."
You seem to have misunderstood my point, which is evident in #3 (I implied that it is wrong to call PhDs irrelevant, I never implied that they should be called Doctors since they made a lot of discoveries). Do you see it now, Esquire? Sir? Doctor of Law?
Ok, let me see if you understand the flaw (btw, this is pretty basic)
"PhDs are not irrelevent because a FEW people who have PhDs have been responsible for relevant discoveries"
Seriously, look long and hard at that sentence.
Hilarious. Are you seriously that ignorant and narrow-minded? You know, I was joking about the Devry before... I am actually scared now...
Please, DO NOT rephrase my sentences. You generalized all PhDs in the academia and said that they are irrelevant (which is not true). I countered it by saying that there are a lot of PhDs (most of whom are in the Academia) who are responsible for many discoveries and scientific breakthroughs (which, obviously, suggests that one should never say that all PhDs in the academia are irrelevant). Do you get it now, Esquire? now, a nuclear physicist is likely to be more "relevant" than someone with a Doctorate degree in Arts. However, they both contribute to the society in one way or another and calling either of them "irrelevant" is downright wrong. Do you get it now, Doctor of Law?
Reading comprehension & logic FAIL
Talking to you is like talking to a brick wall, I've never seen anyone so dense. The bolded is not what was said. Go back and read the fucking posts you idiot. Jesus you are stupid.
