Proof That A PhD Doesn’t Make You Smart: Part 2

Note: Why am I posting comments by Tom Snyder, Movieguide’s Editor-in-Chief, to this blog? For posterity.

From the comment section of The Christian Oscars – The New Yorker (I found a copy of Tom Snyder’s words on a forum):

Overstreet is a being a jerk and an ignoramus. He’s also a movie snob. And, I have a Ph.D. in Film Studies from Northwestern University, so I’ll put my expertise against his any time!

My response:

Tom Snyder,

You have a PhD, but you sound like a little kid. An immature one.

Those who guard their mouths and their tongues keep themselves from calamity. (Proverbs 21:23)

  1. To me, a PhD is a just pile-hip-deep piece of paper which has no merit whatsoever to one’s intelligence. An open-minded, ambitious, kind-hearted high school dropout can be beyond smarter than an ignorant, arrogant, rambunctious PhD holder.
