An interesting article about Fundie scholars

Ran across [url=https://www.academia.edu/10039504/_Protective_Strategies_and_the_Prestige_of_the_Academic_A_Religious_Studies_and_Practice_Theory_Redescription_of_Evangelical_Inerrantist_Scholarship]this[/url] and thought you might find it interesting.

Its a bit of a dry read so I'll summarize. The author is basically saying that religious scholars who claim that the bible is inerrant should be studied as examples of how religion distorts academic thought.

I've read the abstract at the above link, but haven't had time to read the [url=http://stephenlyoung.weebly.com/uploads/4/9/2/1/49211965/stephen_young_protective_strategies_and_the_prestige_of_the_academic.pdf]complete article[/url] yet.

I'll try to get to it this week.
