During the luncheon prior to the "Atheism Poisons Everything" debate held September 7th, 2010 in Birmingham, Alabama, Logidea U.'s Dean of the College of Heresy, R. H. McCargar presented the very first Ho
norary PhD In Heresy cum laude in Reason and Logic, to Christopher Hitchens. McCargar also gave an embroidered AntiTheist cap as well as two shirts: PhD In Heresy and AntiTheist to Mr. Hitchens.
Christopher Hitchens is not only an erudite best selling author, devastating to face in debate, he is fearless in opposing superstition and myth, just as he has been fearless in reporting from war-zones around the globe over several decades.
We could think of no one more deserving of the first Honorary PhD In Heresy than Mr. Hitchens. When asked to the Vatican to testify regarding Mother Theresa, Mr. Hitchens argued that Mother Theresa should not be canonized. Who but Hitch could strike out the pope with that pitch?
Christopher Hitchens has traveled the world, leaving Reason and Logic in his wake.

Now, what do you do? Earn and display your PhD In Heresy diploma, wear our heretical apparel in public, and the faithful will question you. These actions present an opportunity for you to explain why science, reason and logic are necessary to overcome superstition and myth.
