The district overseer said that he was visiting with a man at the door and he read some books from the society and that they were college level quality. He said that we were getting thousands of dollars worth of education for free and come to find out this man had been the HEAD MAN AT OXFORD UNIVERSITY.
Oooooh Blondie, great minds think alike! I was just thinking the exact same thing. Also, the "head man" at Oxford University would have to be the president of the university, as all the faculties are divided into different disciplines such as Engineering, Health Sciences, Law, Arts, Environmental Studies, so which "head man" was he talking about?
I think he got "head man" and "straw man" mixed up. While there has been some useful articles in the Awake magazine over the years (just general interest stuff), the Society's books and articles are most certainly not looked upon as being "college level quality" by any college or university. If they were, the professors would use the publications in their courses, which they don't. If they did, you can be sure that this would be told at every assembly, in all the towns, in all the world. The main reason no one would use the Society's publications, is because they're biased, they're historically incorrect (ex: 607 BCE) and should all start with "Once upon a time...."
And given the negative view of "higher education" within the Organization, why are they so proud that a (supposed) professor would speak highly of their literature?
