Funny thing how your bankrupt argument always brings you back to putting
words in the mouth of your perceived antagonist. It would do no good to
refute your bracketed imputation to my intent since your on a runaway with
Chicken Little at the throttle with no planned stopovers for bothersome
Care to guess how "new" neo-Darwinism is? Oh, I've read a sociobiological
study or two, in my time. And I've read the critiques of sociobiological
studies or two, in my time. I think your wailing display over doubt over your
pronouncement of supreme importance for your method reflects more upon your
intellectual shallowness than anything else. The cavalier dismissal of your
own intellectual history suggests a vain attempt to hype the self-importance
of sociobiology while at the same time smearing all competing ideas. Good luck
in this propaganda campaign!
