I got my PhD in skiing

I taught it was more odd the priest snowboarding he looks pretty sick lol
You should read his paper before condemning it. PhDs are around 100,000 words, not something to be taken likely, and certainly not as easy as the article makes it sound. He has most likely developed a thesis, drawn significantly on empirical and theoretical works and put a lot of effort in to it. Just because it is on a topic that seems to be fleeting and superficial, it does not mean it was easy to obtain.
And sociology of religion is one of the most important and applicable areas of humanities, especially at the moment.

its a theology ph.d with a thesis about the connexion between snowboarding and spirituality... nothing out of the ordinary. thx cbc for misleading catchy title
No doubt he did a significant amount of hard work to earn this. I think VinneF is just pointing out that it seems pretty odd to have a phd in snowboarding.

not all PhD's are 200 page papers, one could obtain a PhD in a field of mathematics with what's written on a single side of a single sheet of paper. That being said, that person probably put just as much time and effort into that single sheet of paper.
But my point being, what's the purpose of a doctorate? I'd say to be able to expand human knowledge in a way that benefits the populous. A spiritual connection between people and snowboarding does not do that. It's completely pointless. And there's no way he put in even close to as much work as someone getting a doctorate in aerospace engineering. This is the basket weaving of degrees. It's completely unneeded and silly.
And even if it wasn't easy to obtain, as you said; 'it is on a topic that seems to be fleeting and superficial'. I could make up my own degree in say balancing a ball on top of a pole on top of my nose while I'm riding a bike on a rope over a pit full of pokemon who's levels are all over 9000 and it's connection with human spirituality. It would be incredibly difficult to do, probably the most difficult degree one could get, but it doesn't mean it's useful in any way or should even be a degree.
I realize this should probably be in NSG actually

Here in the UK you can get degrees of all natures, including golf course management, basket weaving and surf studies, and it'll probably cost you the equivalent of 18,000 USD/year.
