Christian “exaggeration” and subsequent misinformation
As Muslims, we are called to holiness and righteousness so it is our duty to speak out over misinformation. Over at this blog we expose hoaxes and other bouts of deception regularly. Sadly, misinformation regularly emanates from Christian comment boards on the internet and we should endeavour to verify their claims prior to accepting them.
A while ago I was asked to investigate James White’s doctorate; there are people who believe his degree to be fake/forged and were generally accusing White of deception. I found the Christian attacks on White’s doctorate to be unfounded and/or exaggerated.
Sadly, Christians are MISLEADING (wilfully or unknowingly) folk on the internet by making a huge issue out of James White’s doctorate.
Let me reiterate:
~ James White did NOT forge his doctorate
~ James White does have a degree
~ James White is NOT deceiving you over his doctorate
~ Christians are misleading you via their exaggeration and zeal in their attempts to discredit Dr James White’s qualification.
So what are these Christians banging on about?
The only issue here is that of accreditation – James White’s degree was awarded by an unaccredited institution (Columbia Evangelical Seminary). I’ve seen Peter Lumpkins, Dave Armstrong and Paul Owen criticise White’s academic qualifications BUT subsequent commentators are WRONGLY concluding James White has a forged degree and/or is guilty of deception concerning his qualifications - this erroneous concluding is through NO fault of Peter Lumpkins, Dave Armstorn et al.
People are presenting warped understandings of these investigations. It is just an issue of accreditation – White DOES have a degree. From what I can recall from my previous investigations, James White has already commented on the lack of accreditation!
ALWAYS verify information on Christian comment boards as they do have a dishonest track-record on the internet.
Why are MUSLIMS needed to correct Christians?
I have a ton of deception to correct – specifically Christian deception, including material from Kent Hovind, Father Zakaria Butros and Dave Wood.
Please do not ask me to investigate James White’s doctorate – he has a doctorate!
I invite you all to Islam
UPDATE: Christians claimed James White claimed he knew Arabic on his FB, we investigated it:
UPDATE: Patty Bonds (James' sister) has confirmed James White has a doctorate:
