I usually don't read junkmail before sending it to the data-afterlife (Hell, I hope), but this one I found amusing and "oddly" it reminded me of certain relevant personalities involved in the C/E debate. Of course, there is no copyright notice, no sign of attribution in the message, and their phone number I choose not to add because there is no way I would even risk helping these people. Here are the highlights, anyway:

UNIVERSITY DIPLOMAS

Obtain a prosperous future, money earning power, and the admiration of all.

(with)

Diplomas from prestigious non-accredited
universities....

No one is turned down.

That looks identical to the email I received a couple weeks ago, but what made it funny was that earlier that day I had sent a request for a course to my boss. I sent him a copy with the note, "Can you believe it? They have the nerve to charge $2500 for that course, while I can get an entire degree for only $50. I expect a raise after I get my diploma. "

Not only can you obtain technical degrees, but apparently you can become a minister as well. From my swbell account where I only receive SPAM and various people trying to get me to accept Jesus Christ since I'm a Godless evolutionist. Would this make me equivalent to Kent Hovind?

Hovind probably wouldn't pay $50.
