If you want to signal your intelligence, a college degree just means that you are like everyone else. Colleges have very low standards these days. They are dropping standardized testing requirements. Colleges have been promoting violence. Colleges have been promoting anti-semitism. The community colleges suck. The elite universities are just as horrible. A B.S. degree is not worth anything at all. A Ph.D. in the hard sciences is still worth a little bit. M.D.s are not worth much because biological laboratories still have not implemented all sensible safety protocols. All the medical doctors in the USA have not prevented Americans from becoming really fat. Here are some ways that you can signal your intelligence besides getting a college degree.

0. Most people are really dumb.

1. Investing in a cryptocurrency where the mining algorithm that is designed to advance science while still establishing decentralized consensus is a signal to those around you that you are intelligent enough to understand that senselessly wasting resources is a really bad idea. And investing in garbage like NFTs is a signal of your lack of intelligence. Oh? You disagree with me? That is only because you have a low level of intelligence.

2. Be pretty. Good look people tend to be more intelligent than non-good looking people.

3. There is a strong correlation between race and IQ. The Jews are the smartest. TSMC is the company that makes most of the semiconductors so that your computers actually work. This means that the people of Taiwan have a high level of intelligence. A lot of countries are poor because their people do not have a very high level of intelligence.

4. Communicate intelligently. This means that need to say things that actually make sense. And you should communicate using proper grammar, spelling, capitalization, and punctuation. It may be helpful if you are capable of communicating in multiple languages.

5. Are your schools filled with bullies? I hate to break it to you, but if your kids are too fucking afraid of going to school because they are going to get bullied, then bloody NOBODY is getting an education at that school. There is an easy way to tell if a school has a major problem with bullying. If the school had a mass shooting, that means that the shooter has been bullied relentlessly and has no options for peace. You should therefore consider anyone who ever went to a school with a mass shooting to be an unintelligent moron who is absolutely worthless to society.

6. Don't be fat. There is a correlation between obesity and intelligence. If I see a fat person, I will automatically assume with good accuracy that that fat person is also dumb. There are some exceptions. There are some smart fat people who still need to lose the weight.

If we combine these standards, we have a good way of determining who is smart and who is dumb.

A college degree is less important now due to technology & alternative learning options. Intelligence is not solely measured by a degree as it encompasses various skills. Critical thinking, problem solving, creativity & adaptability are examples of intelligence that can be demonstrated through different means.

Technology may be a part of the problem with colleges, but we have had books for a long time that people could read from, so people have had the opportunity to teach themselves for a while now. It seems like the main issue these days is the lack of professionalism at colleges. As long as these deplorable institutions refuse to apologize for promoting violence against me, I will take a strong stand against stem. The only reason why people would opt for college degrees as the main method of demonstrating intelligence, work ethic, and moral goodness etc, is because they lack the intelligence, work ethic, and moral goodness to judge people on what they truly know and what they can truly do.

Actually, intelligence of mankind cannot be measured by someone's level of degree in academics as intelligence has more to do with what one can offer to the society rather than claiming high level of education when you can't solve problems in the society or proffer solution. Inasmuch as life is concerned, acquiring high level of education is real good but it doesn't really mean because you've acquired that level of education that you're now intelligent. I see most higher degree holders bragging about how they acquired high level of education when they can't really be able to render any solution to problems in the society but yet they claim they're lettered.

The reason people who have college education cannot offer anything to society is that their colleges are too unprofessional and they promote violence. And I am not going to let this one go until colleges apologize for promoting violence. If you search for "universities promote violence", you will get links back to me because I am not going to back down from this until universities apologize for being so asinine and terrible. There is absolutely no excuse for this. A person with a university education these days is worth as much as a plastic doll with a missing arm and messy hair.

I spent 4 years in the Ph.D. program. I have no regrets about getting the degree because anyone can get a B.S. degree, but a Ph.D. is better. How can you not know this? Well, I am smarter than you because unlike you, I realize that Bitcoin has a mining algorithm that was never designed to advance science.

Most people are really dumb.
Do you know one can be educated and still be dumb,  going to school does not make people intelligent in reasoning and be able to handle things. School is more about to get understanding about a particular field and to get certificate for the numbers of exams written for the discipline. Their are some people who pass through from college sometimes their way of reasoning is very poor that their degree can't even reflect in their character content.

College degrees do not even prove that students passed their exams because colleges pander to the students who make violent threats against their professors, and colleges do not even acknowledge any wrongdoing for this. You can't trust people with college degrees. You just can't. Only the Ph.D. is trustworthy.

There is absolutely nothing stupider than people who fork out 100,000 a year to go to some stupid ass college when the colleges pander to students who make threats of violence against their professors. People with student loan debt seriously need to be locked up in debtor's prisons.

Well, I am smarter than you because unlike you, I realize that Bitcoin has a mining algorithm that was never designed to advance science.

I appreciate your dedication to furthering your education through a Ph.D. program. It's evident that you value the depth of knowledge and expertise it offers. While I do agree that a Ph.D. holds significance in certain domains, I believe intelligence manifests itself in various ways and cannot be solely measured by one's educational attainment.

Regarding the topic of Bitcoin and its mining algorithm, it's interesting to see how advancements in technology can be used in different fields. While the primary purpose of Bitcoin's mining algorithm may not be specifically to advance science, it's worth acknowledging the potential for technological innovations to contribute to scientific progress indirectly.

Instead of debating our respective levels of intelligence, I believe it's more productive to engage in discussions where we can learn from each other's perspectives and expand our knowledge collectively. Let's focus on fostering a respectful and enriching conversation. Do you have any other insights or thoughts you'd like to share?

-Um. Most people on this site yell at me because I have made it through the Ph.D. program, and I do not like flattery because it is really fake. Understanding that Bitcoin has a mining algorithm that was never designed to advance science is one of those ways that one can exhibit its intelligence. But since the Bitcoin community does not understand this, it is clear that the Bitcoin community lacks intelligence.

-And yet the Bitcoin community rejects scientific advancement for absolutely no reason at all because the Bitcoin community is so mentally inept.

-Um. I cannot debate the people here. Debating requires both sides to have a certain level of intelligence. This is like trying to debate a newborn baby. I can however flat out tell the people here that they lack intelligence. It is their responsibility to trust me because I am smart enough to know what is best for them. I have tried to have a respectful conversation but the people on this site are too dense and angry to communicate with about anything because there is something dangerously wrong with them.

Again, congratulations on completing your Ph.D. program! It's understandable that you appreciate genuine discussions rather than flattery. Regarding Bitcoin's mining algorithm, it's important to remember that its primary purpose was to secure transactions and provide a decentralized monetary system. However, I believe intelligence encompasses different fields of knowledge, and although not everyone may fully grasp the intricacies of Bitcoin's algorithm, it doesn't necessarily imply a lack of intelligence within the community. Open dialogue and sharing insights can help bridge gaps in understanding. What are your thoughts on potential intersections between Bitcoin and scientific advancements?

It is easy to use computation for a scientific purpose. It is also easy to create a cryptocurrency mining algorithm that secures the cryptocurrency, and this task is so easy that it is kind of boring and routine; I am not interested in this at all. It is more difficult to create a cryptocurrency mining algorithm that secures the cryptocurrency and also uses that computation to solve some other important problem. Since this task is more difficult, this is where all the innovation lies (and it is even more difficult to measure the cryptographic security of the new mining algorithm; one needs mathematicians and/or cryptographers to measure the security of mining algorithms and select a secure mining algorithm). But since the Bitcoin community has such a low level of intelligence, they cannot see any use in solving any scientific problem and they lack the imagination to realize that it is possible to both secure the network and also solve a scientific problem at the same time without compromising on either security or scientific advancement.

Yes, I agree with you, gone are those days when education was all a man needs for survival, here in Africa we were meant to understand that going to school and getting the degrees and certificates was for our future, as we can use it to get well paid jobs (Government or private) in other to earn a living, but as we grew up and faced life proper we were meant to understand that survival was about 30%  of your degree and 70% of what you can do with your hands, like a skill,
Most persons studied hard to know, while some studied to pass exams, the ones that studied to know actually knew and those that studied to pass exams, they actually passed the exams but forgot what they read after the exams,   most first class students can't use their intelligence to real life issues, they are only good at reading for exams and getting good grades.

Even if college degrees are necessary to get jobs, colleges and universities are completely and totally incompetent at training anyone for anything. These garbage institutions refuse to apologize for promoting violence against me, and they do not even recognize their own Nazism. This is a quote from a Hitler worshipping Nazi professor who has failed to realize that I am calling out universities for being full of idiots who act like Nazis.

Quote
Frankly, your manner of calling people to your cause leaves much to be desired. I can't believe it is effective for you. I don't know of anyone who would be attracted to support you by receiving a giant image of Hitler in their inbox. Most people would immediately block someone who sent a giant image of Hitler to them, and indeed, the only reason I didn't do so is because I have known you a while and we've had some interesting mathematical interactions, and so I think you deserve some leeway. But I don't care ever to receive such a message again. I support your right to cancel class if you are threatened, and I have told you as much in the past. But as far as I am concerned, your current behavior on the matter puts me completely off.

Kind regards,

Joel
I showed this professor a picture of Hitler because he was a professor at a Nazi institution. The correct response to this would be to denounce the violence and threats of violence against me. This professor refused to denounce the threats of violence because this professor promotes violence. But I am glad that this professor responded so that I can post this message all across the internet so that we can all mock universities for the s@#$holes that they really are. This professor cannot even do any research that has any practical value whatsoever. Or maybe it will in the deep future, but ain't nobody got time for that. I sincerely apologize for using a double negative.

Your opinion is the same as the statement from the Indonesian Ministry of Education and Culture, which states "Higher education is only a tertiary education requirement or is not mandatory".  On the other hand, the government requires that to become an ASN in the government or BUMN, college graduates are required. And in the 1945 Constitution, Article 31 states that every citizen has the right to education. This confirms that it is the state's right and obligation to ensure access to adequate education for all citizens. So in my opinion, higher education for citizens is very necessary to create a developed country.

People with student loan debt seriously need to be locked up in debtor's prisons.

-Joseph Van Name Ph.D.

I don't know about all of them, maybe just the ones who dont pay their loans back and thanks to biden never have to. What do you think Dr. Joseph? Do you think it's fair that the american taxpayer has to pay all these peoples' college loans? But then people who paid off their loans they don't get anything back and people who never went to college, F*** them they still have to pay higher taxes to bail these people out thanks to biden.

most employers that just require people to have a "degree" even if its not in the skillbase required for the role, are employers just looking for people that:
commit to a placement for years
conform to schedules
conform to following mentors/supervisors/managers(lecturers) tasks
submit results in timescales
have experience of work/performance being scrutinised without resulting in emotional outbursts
