The author takes an extreme position,but there has been a great amount of
space devoted to racist ravings and philosophical dbates about God and
existence. These topics are worked to death elsewhere, and it seems the
group could benefit from a relief from these tired old threads. As to the
responder who likes to use "positivist" as an epithet, I can only say that
"the scientific method" which strives for a systematic approach to
studying the world is not the same as "positivism". The
anti-methodology campaign in the social sciences will bring their demise.
