There are very good reasons why bible colleges are not accredited. They require no critical thinking whatsoever. If it is in the bible – an ambiguous document at best – their mantra is “don’t question, just shut up and believe it.”

I suspect Albert Trask’s diploma from Newburgh Theological Seminary & College of the Bible has about as much educational standing as does a diploma obtained from the back of a comic book.

Critical thinking skills in a college such as Newburgh’s do not exist, nor do any science classes to enable an understanding of the world we live in or understand any important scientific questions of the day.

Even though Trask has accredited degrees from Newfoundland, it his questionable degree from Newburgh that he clings to with great pomposity, thereby tipping his hand as to what sort of thinking processes he will bring to the Yukon government’s Educational Department.

I am appalled that a person touting such a narrow pseudo-education would even be considered for an assistant ministerial position in Yukon government’s Department of Education.
