    I am SO there!

    Dude, I am SO there.
    But see, I have a coupon that entitles me to receive monthly payments--yes, they pay me--for at least the rest of my life. Maybe more!

    This ... is a great opportunity. I'm not going to pass it up. I'm no fool.

    No history, no physical address, no faculty, whaddya bet it's another ghost of Trinity--say, MDS for the functionally literate--or is it just wild coincidence that it's in the same small Indiana town--if TTS gets NCA RA accreditation, this could keep the bucks rolling in--maybe I'm guessing wrong, but it sure smells like the, uh, dogs of Toledo to me. If I'm right, and NCA ignores this, MDS, and the internal shenanigans at Trinity, and goes ahead and accredits Trinity, it will be a first rate shame and a scandal.

    This surprises me. I was under the impression that Trinity was trying to distance itself from MDS. Everything at both Trinity and MDS was being scrubbed to cleanse away any obvious connection.

    So why would they immediately turn around and create a second MDS-type wonder?

    It might not be related to Trinity at all. But what are the chances of an unrelated new conservative seminary appearing in the same little Indiana town? Newburgh must really be a hotbed of theology.

    It may be a signal that Trinity expects NCA to say 'no' and that they have essentially given up. They may be trying to replace their profitable non-accredited subsidiary which they may have lost if MDS was really spun off and sold to new owners or something. Personally, I doubt this one too. Trinity wouldn't do this until after their site visit, would they?

    Or it might be a creation of some former Trinity people that were cut loose in Trinity's attempt to scrub itself clean for NCA inspection.

    Or something...

    Hi Bill Dayson:


    I noticed that MDS has tarted up its website considerably, but the prosopographical clues that link it to TTS are still there. This new thing lists no personnel at all--truly a marvelous work and a wonder. It might be a coincidence; I might be the bastard brat of King Carol II, too, but it's unlikely. Spinoff or schism, deep cover or just plain cover your arse, nearly dead certain it's one of these.

    To paraphrase: lie down with hoggs, get up with seminaries.

    The Newburgh Seminary website does, however, list the number of courses needed to earn the Ph.D., Janko. And specifically the minimum number of pages for the "writing project," i.e., 10 pages.

    What more does one need?
