An encyclopedia definition of the word doctrine
On December 9th 2009 Wikileaks.org published the first 102 pages of Kent Hovind's doctoral dissertation. We say the first 102 pages but in fact the whole thesis is apparently published in full.
Although the introduction states that there are 16 chapters it only details the first three in any detail with only a single sentence used to define chapters 4 through to 16. In fact when the whole document is examined it only goes up to chapter 4.
The dissertation is untitled and is simply labeled as "Dissertation for Doctor of Philosophy in Christian Education" and has been printed on a dot matrix printer.
The writing style of the whole document, including spelling and grammatical errors, is laughable and is more akin to a high school assignment than the kind of work that would be submitted to a university as a submission for a doctorate. The subject matter rambles wildly off topic frequently and does not in fact in any way address the subject matter it is purported to relate to.
If this is the full and final dissertation and not a very rough draft or a sample of notes - independent sources indicate that it is indeed the finished article - then either nobody at Patriot University actually read it before they gave Kent his qualification or they didnt need to and that one could obtain a PhD from this university by simply faxing them a copy of the Beano as that is about as relevant to the subject concerned as Kent's dissertation is.
When previously questioned about his dissertation by others who have previously obtained this manuscript, MR Hovind has stated that the manuscript is indeed the dissertation submitted in 1991 and that it has been greatly expanded upon since however a doctoral dissertation is intended as a completed work and once submitted as evidence of a doctorate is NEVER amended or expanded afterwards.
As this document has been published on a public web site and is a dissertation submitted as evidence of academic study in order to obtain an academic qualification I have subjected it to peer review.
This video is the forth in a series that disassembles MR Kent Hovinds dissertation page-by-page, line-by-line and exposes that fact that not only is MR Kent Hovind a tax fraudster but he is also an academic fraudster as well.
Can this man tell the truth about anything?
And yes, before it is pointed out that the word disassembly in the title is spelt wrong, this spelling mistake is a deliberate homage to the many spelling mistakes in MR Hovids dissertation.
