The following is a funny introduction to the work being done in the Divinity Colloquium under Dr. Isaacs guidance.

There is a special group of students meeting regularly but rarely seen together on campus: as in “Harry Potter™” you might be let to think ‘what is that obscure group doing so secretly’? Well, they are the Divinity thesis writers, a gang of six who - under the cheery leadership of Dr. Isaacs - are trying their best to become specialists in at least one academic area and make ‘a modest contribution to knowledge’ (Divinity Program Handbook 2007-2008, p. 8).

So if you see someone with glassy, red eyes and knots in his hair: that might be one of them. Instead of being watched with contempt, that poor individual might need your compassion and/or constructive interest and critique. Here are the (working) titles of the accepted proposals of our seniors:

Mikio Yoshida: “Why God Cannot Cut Satan Away at Once: Relevance of Unification Teaching to Theodicy”

George Ogurie: “Collective Human Conscience as Product of Interfaith Dialogue”

Yasushi Kojima: “Importance of Management in NGO”

Shinichi Takeuchi: “How Science was affected by Theology: The Influence on Heisenberg, Einstein, and Schrödinger’s work”

Ravil Kayumov: “The Comparative Commentary of Selected Bible Verses Used In Exposition of the Divine Principle”

Gerhard Bessell: “Preparatory Investigation for Establishing an Academic Institution of the Unification Movement in Latin America: Guiding Philosophy and Practical Necessities with Reference to Guatemala”
