"buddhism =/= atheism however much vangelis wants to align the two.
I have no problem with atheists as buddhists, but vangelis constantly points to teachings of his belief over and over and most atheists are just tired of that. It's…"

Looks like the one she did. Sickening. It's no better than the Bob Jones "university" here. I refer to them as "US christian level" programs. What on earth happened to academic levels since I left in 1999? They must have plummeted under Howard in a big way.
My alma mater (MU) has gone "American". My old program is now a PhD. But they won't be reissuing my degree with than name anytime soon.
Small world. I am having an ongoing "discussion" with a Fundie friend in Wang at the moment. I shut up for years until there were one too many Christian virals from her. She used to be sane. Very sad. A few years ago she got a "Masters" degree in Christian counseling, but the standard of the work she has done is considerably lower than the old Counseling Diplomas which I did a subject from some of some years ago. (I have a "real" Masters degree.) Do you have any idea where she could get such a prestigiously named degree in Australia with so little training in actual thinking?
Hi again! I've given Jesus - All About Lies a plug on the Aussie group's main page. That's what we're here for, to publicize and promote any atheist activity in Oz.
