The Highest Paid Historian On Earth


Is Dr. Glenn Beck:

"It's official: Beck is now a doctor of philosophy. Liberty University's honoring of Beck is fitting because he has clearly established himself as Fox News's resident 'historian,' with his area of expertise being American civilization, with emphases on the early republic, Progressivism, and the New Deal. Glenn Beck, Ph.D. makes about $1 million a month, earning him the distinction of being the highest paid 'historian' in the world."

Cograds to Dr. Beck

A timely post, given Dr. Beck's account (link and commentary) yesterday of the Council of Nicaea and the Dead Sea Scrolls. Needless to say, I'm surprised he is being honored by Liberty University.

Beck is obviously capable of error. The "highest paid historian on earth" comment was a dig at academics. That being said, and despite his occasional error and emotionalism, I believe he is doing a respectable job of exposing the true roots and goals of the progressive movement in American politics.

How about a debate between Dr. Dawkins and Dr. Beck. Dawkins warned students to run as fast as they could to get away from an institution with a museum labelling dinosaur bones as 6000 years old!(Liberty)

I believe Beck would want more of a challenge.
