Your nut-filter just goes up on auto-pilot when you see that bit.
Take a look at convicted criminal Kent Hovind in the states for example. He went around claiming to be a trained scientist after procuring a mail order degree and attacking Evolution in debate after debate using slides from science books many years out of date.
Yet there are people who see such degrees and are convinced of their legitimacy, even AFTER the holder is convicted of various counts of fraud, jailed and spends all his time now claiming that Jesus visits him in prison to tell him he is innocent and is doing gods work.
