Two Credos: The University and the Antiversity

By Nicholas Stix

Richard Herrnstein, a great psychologist and a great man, once summed up both the rationale for, and duty both of tenure and of the university, simply as:

You have to tell the truth.

Under multiculturalism, the rationale for, and duty both of tenure and of the antiversity, can be summed up simply as:

You have to lie.

(For an introduction to the world of academic hoaxes, hit the following links for material exposing, respectively:

Academic fraud Ward Churchill; social psychologist Kenneth Clark’s perjured Supreme Court testimony and doll study hoax; John Boswell’s (no, not that Boswell!) Medieval same-sex marriage hoax; Michael Bellesiles’ early American gun-owner hoax; sundry feminist hoaxes; Stephen Jay Gould’s intelligence testing hoax; black supremacists’ Out-of-Africa Hoax; the “Ebonics” Hoax; the Sally Hemings Hoax; test-basher fallacies; “stereotype threat” (here and here ); Climategate; and the foundation hoax of “disparate impact.”)

Nicholas, you said in the comment section your blog entry of Sally Hemmings:

"You’re kidding, right? The research librarian at the Jefferson Library faxed me the letter over six years ago. Since then, I’ve published over 300 articles. Do you think that I have nothing better to do, than keep material from over six years and 300-odd articles ago, that I used for a print magazine article ready to hand, in case Her Royal Highness, Queen Eileen Smyth, would demand to see it?"

Why wouldn't you keep such material especially one of great importance which would once and for all debunks the "myth" of Sally Hemings?

Or why didn't you come out with the letter six years ago when you supposedly still have it?

Your blog started on 2006 and yet there are only two articles which mentioned Sally Hemings: This article and the article where you said the comment i cited.

If i would be so bold i would like to remind you again.

People are only entitled to their own opinions, not their own facts.
