← Another 50 Renowned Academics Speaking About God

Whose invidiously dimwitted idea was it to include incontrovertible liar, plagiarist, demagogue, psychopath, and dazzlingly underwhelming intellectual mediocrity Alan Dershowitz? He's famous to be sure, but most definitely not for anything that resembles academic accomplishment.

His tenure, like Niall Ferguson's, and (formerly) Cornel West's, is proof positive there is something quite apart from intelligence that (mightily) helps determine who will ascend to full professorship at Harvard.
