There’s a first time for everything.
An essay of mine was returned with the following criticisms:
“Arguments too vague.”
“The research doesn’t support your argument.”
Among other things, it was suggested that I don’t attempt to be as investigative as I am and rather report the majority understanding on a given topic, so as to provide a more conclusive whole for the reader.
I’m sorry, but fuck that noise. Oh, so a few decades of historians and “experts” agree with your point of view? Well, it just so happens that I don’t, and that doesn’t invalidate my argument. The reader should want to be provided all angles and make a decision for themselves. It would be a disservice, not to mention egotistical, to assume my audience agrees with me.
Call me crazy, but I dissected the symbiosis of faith and authority over the past few centuries and found that the two haven’t gone very well together. I’m sorry you disagree, but that makes the argument no less sound. You are the worst type of person to be educating my peers and I. Fuck.
Go eat a bowl of dicks, Professor Asshat, because that paper went right the fuck over your head.
