This has already appeared in thousands of sites in different forms (I discovered it here) but I felt this blog wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t not reproduce it here as well. It may look like a joke but there’s a lot of wisdom in these items.

So, here we go, Why god will never get tenure:

  1. He had only one major publication.
  2. It was in Hebrew.
  3. It had no references.
  4. It wasn’t pub­lished in a ref­er­eed journal.
  5. Some even doubt he wrote it by himself.
  6. It may be true that he cre­ated the world, but what has he done since then?
  7. The sci­en­tific com­mu­nity has had a hard time repli­cat­ing his results.
  8. He never applied to the ethics board for per­mis­sion to use human subjects.
  9. When one exper­i­ment went awry he tried to cover it by drown­ing his subjects.
  10. When sub­jects didn’t behave as pre­dicted, he deleted them from the sample.
  11. He rarely came to class, just told stu­dents to read the book.
  12. Some say he had his son teach the class.
  13. He expelled his first two stu­dents for learning.
  14. Although there were only 10 require­ments, most of his stu­dents failed his tests.
  15. His office hours were infre­quent and often held on lim­ited access moun­tain tops.
  16. He has no record of work­ing well with colleagues.
