Amusing acknowledgement to God in a student thesis I was reading
So I was about to read this thesis on mass properties of air planes when this distracted me before I could even read it.

Acknowledgements

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding, in all
you ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and
instruction.” Proverbs 1:7

“Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.”
Psalm 37:4

First and foremost, I would like to thank my loving Creator for making me a
curious being who loves to explore His creation and for giving me the opportunity
to write this thesis. Without Him, I can do nothing.

I would also like to thank my supportive wife, Robin, who has made this arduous
journey much more pleasant. Her love and helpful spirit have motivated me to
achievements beyond my own expectations.

I guess that discredits his thesis right away! Tongue Just kidding.

"Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth." - Henry David Thoreau

Stuff like that just annoys me. To me its like saying "Thank you to my imaginary friend for telling me to write this sentence, without him I would have never thought of it." ><

It is not appropriate for you to post this guy's acknowledgements for ridicule.

Agreed.

Whether or not you share his beliefs it doesn't permit putting his words here where he has no defense in order to be an object of ridicule.

Disagree. If it's published, it's out there to be commented on.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

Really you guys? He didn't put the guys name on this, it is anonymous. How is this different than any of the other anecdotes people share in this forum? Entire Facebook conversations have been shared, Conversations etc.

This is not a published article but a students paper submitted to a teacher and is therefore protected

He acknowledges his delusion. First step in recovery is to admit the problem.
