Son, it is truly amazing to hear someone calling others shallow when the
speaker believes a recycled version of the simplistic Herbert Spencer
"social darwinisn" of around the turn of the century.

Real natural historians don't believe that crap. I know, you think Stephen
Jay Gould is "shallow" and the committee of second-rate intellects who
put together "The Bell Curve" are genuises.

You are wrong. I can't talk about genetics at 7:00 am, but I can tell
you that "nature red in tooth and claw" is the simplistic slogan of a
bunch of scientific fundamentalists who couldn't understand Darwin,
Wallace, or the universe they lived in.
