Here's a bit of trivia on how questionable credentials can come back to haunt you, bite you, or simply explode in your face. This evening I watched the movie The Devil's Knot. The movie is based on the true story of the West Memphis Three, a controversial trial of three teenagers accused of killing several young kids as part of a satanic ritual. During the trial a supposed expert in satanic ritualism is called to the stand to corroborate the testimony of one of the witnesses. While the supposed expert is being cross examined the legitimacy of his credentials arise. This may not be verbatim, but the prosecutor said something like, Is it true that you obtained your PhD from Columbia Pacific University, an unaccredited school that required no class work? The guy on the stand becomes fidgety, looks around, then drops his head in shame. OUCH!!!!!!!
