It looks as if you just did. Intellectual History. The uppercase says it all, so you don't have to.

It's in upper case because that is the title of my Masters degree.

As far as your other comments, I'll respond when you present some sort of counter argument.

Why you mention creationism I have no idea.

Maybe it was the way you quoted Kuhn as some received wisdom handed down by authorities of "Intellectual History" (upper case, in scare quotes, with feeling). I'll bet you have it on good authority that Intellectual History was created, rather than simply evolving by natural processes. Spiked with humanism. Anyway, I've got no reason to believe you have a degree in anything. Why are you telling anecdotes on the internet? Nothing you've posted so far gives the faintest clue that you have a university education, besides your occasional bouts of literacy. It's either that, or the "Intellectual History" faculty at Sussex sucks eggs, and you should ask for your money back, if all you're going to use it for is spouting vapid shit such as the following:

Hobbes Choice wrote:When we both identify red we are agreeing on a subjectively identified, but objectively decided set of values.

Oh, and the creationism, again: You brought it up:

Hobbes Choice wrote:Evidence is what you make is. There is no evidence that does not assume a theory in its collection. That's why Christians find themselves with buckets of evidence for their theory of divine creation.

Even if you could demonstrate such a claim, it still would not mean that evidence doesn't vary in quality. You know, all that five-nines stuff they talk about in physics, in case you ever ran across it.
