I agree. Strange pitch: photo op for those who are atheists who have Seminary Degree papers or the like to show others who are struggling that it can be done.

Keep the degree. It shows you had the perseverance to stick to it and accomplish a goal. Job interviewers like to ask "what did you do during these four years."

Even if God and Jesus existed and I could live forever just by believing in them, I'm not so sure that eternal hellfire would be worse than having the omnipotent psychopath and his bastard kid looking over me for all eternity.

15 years of pastoral ministry looked good on my application to UW's School of Social Work. If ya got it, flaunt it. Drinking Beverage

I'd keep it. You earned the degree - hell, you PAID the tuition! It's not like they're going to give you a refund because you realized what they taught you was bunk.

Frankly, I think it's worth keeping - it gives you the perspective of someone who has done the seeking. It's part of your journey. And, if you decide to do further study in another field, perhaps this degree will allow you to have a head start by applying some of the credits to that course of study.

RE: Give Up Seminary Degree?
Thanks to all for the advice! Guess I'll just keep it and go from here, although I'm sure they won't be happy to have provided an atheist with the "full armor of God" Smile
