Hey RJ, did you have a chance to like create some stuff?  Pretty sure some svelte ID cards would feed the monkey, and I like being able to whip out my credentials when people are like unsure about this.

Good deal.  Hope the time in the states went as well as it could.  Excited about the Abide University concept!  Might try to submit a piece for consideration for that upcoming book if it's not too late.

All Universities are made up of various colleges and other institutions. In this case I humbly submit the following.............

(a bunch of dudely abidin' words)

I hereby offer my help as anything you need. I used to teach college courses, so I know a little bit. I can also help design.

Will we dudeists be able to become deans or professors or something to make ourselves sound really impressive? C'mon, it might help some of us get more chicks.

Chance would be a fine thing, by the amount some of us spend on here just giving us an ID card is unlikely to improve things.

I am looking forward for the ID cards too. On FB I clearly state that I am a Dudeist (and had the question asked if this means that I am a Nudist), I have a FB page which is my chapel and on my blog my appartenance to the Church is prominently displayed.

plus, we're also going to offer Abide University student ID cards so you dudes can get discounts on movies and flights and what have you. Masters Degrees in Leisure Studies, Dudeism, Philosophy, Ethics, etc. will be available for free through the site (printed certificates will cost a bit, naturally) and Ph.Ds (and honorary faculty appointment) will be awarded to anyone who sends in a convincing thesis for publication (certificates in this case will be free).

May I offer some suggestions?  I know I'm a bit of a pushy fat bastard, but hey, it's my calling in life. Someone's gotta do it.

Doctor of Philosophy - PhD
A thesis regarding philosophy and/or comparative religions, such as creations myths, stoicism from Zeno to Aurelius, etc.

Doctor of Humanities - DHum
For exemplary public service. For a thesis, it could be something like how important your Red Cross days were, how you started a community center, or so on.

Doctor of Humane Letters - LHD (Litterarum Humaniorum Doctor)
Similar to the previous, but usually for academic distinction. For instance, if you published a book, this might count.

Doctor of Fine Arts - DFA
For writers, artists, musicians, sculptors, architects, art/museum curators. A thesis could include a song you made, discussions of heptatonic scales and Western music, or a discussion of how the opera Lucia di Lammermoor's Ashton vs Ravenwood feud compares to Shakespeare's Montague vs Capulet feud.

Doctor of Letters/Literature - DLit, DLitt, LitD, LittD (Litterarum doctor)
For great scholarly contributions of literary, social, historical, or other similar value. Mark Twain got one from Oxford, if that helps. In many cases, this is higher than a PhD. This is for the really smart, really influential, or people with like Lebowski coolness.

Doctor of Laws - LLD (Legum Doctor)
For a thesis or contributions to laws or politics. There is also the SJD (Scientiae Juridicae Doctor). The LLD and SJD are academic or research, not to be confused with a JD, the Juris Doctor, require to practice law. Attorneys get JDs, while researchers and writers get the other ones.

Doctor of Science - DS, ScD (Scientiae Doctor)
Can be for sciences, including technological and social sciences. Can also be used to honor educators who are really smart fuckers.

Doctor of Education - EdD, DEd (Doctor Educationis)
Bit of controversy regarding EdD and PhD in education. Depends on the institution as to what it means and the differences. Some consider it a rather lowly doctorate, but surely those with it disagree.

Doctor of Divinity - DD (Divinitatis Doctor)
Usually an honorary one, since it's pretty common for churches to give them out. In the past, it was given to scholars who taught theology. Nowadays if you're not a preacher in a pulpit, some people look down upon these.

Honorary degrees, or doctorates honoris causa, are the highest award given to those who have earned them. For instance, Dr. Billy Graham has a bunch of honorary degrees. He academically earned a bachelor's in anthropology, but since he's been preaching since T rex died, I guess they figured he's earned it.

Ignore these if you want.

JLMO (just like my opinion)

Great suggestions! I'm not sure if we're going to offer all those types of degrees, however. It depends how it unfolds. I have researched the laws and it seems that we could offer all those, especially since we're clearly not being fraudulent like diploma mills that charge thousands of dollars for a piece of paper. Like our ordinations, we'd offer them for free, though we'd have to charge for the certificates (and Student ID cards, etc.).

I'm trying to decide how best to balance it so that we offer free degrees but we also provide incentive for people to present theses to an online database. Maybe we'd offer Masters Degrees in Leisure Science, Practical Philosophy, and the like, but doctorates only to people who write theses.

Moreover, people who really participate (evaluating theses, promoting the University, etc) would get faculty status. Professor Dudes.

What say you?
I'll tell you what I'm blathering about...
