This guy confuses me.  The whole point of Wikipedia is that anyone can edit it; what's the point of pretending to have credentials you don't even need?

What i want to know is how someone looking things up in "Catholicism for Dummies" could convince anyone he had theology degrees? Apparently I know more about Catholicism than he does in that I know about the Catholic Encyclopedia -- even the old edition online is bound to have more info than "Catholicism for Dummies."

By the way, anyone want to see my dental hygenists' credentials? Because I totally have them.
