in response to reader comment: Education

The western concept of ritualized, matriculated education is alien to the individual who has internalized the mythology of the "Muslim". The "Alma Mater", or notion of rebirth thru Academia to a higher level of awareness is a not a notion consistent with the mythology of the so called "Muslim". To the "Muslim", internalization and self identification of the mythology is the antithesis of the Western caste system of Academia. The notion of "Entered, Passed and Raised" is, in essence, a Masonic concept applied to Academia. The "Muslim" has no need of degrees. He has acheived the status of elite simply by the internalization of the mythology.
