Moore grief

Good grief. Dr Moore must be full of himself (PPPost, 25 March 2005, p. 15). He must

have done research into my background to come up with his interesting judgment that

the three eminent scholars he claims examined his dissertation are "far more

experienced and qualified to judge his research methodology than he [I]".

Yes, he is probably right. Macquarie University has generally produced intelligent

graduates, but it may also be true that there is always an exception to the rule.

It is rather amazing that one can now secure a Ph.D. with a thesis based on 18 articles

out of 129 from a single magazine, whose outcomes are then "statistically validated

by eminent scholars" for the whole western press. It is much comforting to know

that such a powerful and meticulous research methodology exists; one can perhaps

now write a thesis to support an idea that pigs fly.

It reminds me of a claim by one of my professors that some doctorate degrees measure

anything but the level of intelligence. I thought he was just kidding.
