Oh Dear Lord Marx,
There are blasphemers among us! They do not sub*scribe to the one
true interpretation and orthodox application of the holy DiaMat! One
of them "sneered", another one claimed that his interpretation of
your Word was just as legit as mine, and even worse, one suggested
that (dare I say it) You, yes You might have been wrong about
And the worst thing of all is that they do not give proper respect to
your only true interpreter!
Oh, Lord, what shall I do? How shall I drive the money-changers from
the temple? How shall I eliminate those pretenders to your Name?
(Imagine much gnashing of teeth here.)

Listen, kid: You've got a lot more than physics to learn...
'Dialectical Materialism' is indeed a belief system which implies
that the holder of the beliefs can be partly, or even completely
wrong about their view of reality....
YOU MEAN, EVEN JIM COULD BE COMPLETELY WRONG? HOW NICELY HUMBLE

Just why are you sniffing at 'Diamat' that way?? You think the
reductionist crap that passes for much of scientific thinking these

DON'T patronize me, kid -- I doubt there's much else besides physics

TALK ABOUT ATTITUDE?
There's a book by, of all people, Arthur Koestler -- the guy who
wrote 'Darkness at Noon' -- regarding unfinished research in this
I'm not saying it necessarily *IS* true, but I *AM* saying that my
and other peoples' experience with the arrogance, stupidity and
corruption of Establishment Science EASILY leads me to believe that
any research into
Lysenko-ism yielding positive data WOULD be suppressed.
I am suspicious of ALL present attempts to denigrate such research
-- ESPECIALLY if it is of an eager anti-communist kind...
I'VE NEVER SEEN ANY SUCH ATTEMPTS - CITATIONS?
YOU are the pompous little one who came in here and sneered at
dialectical materialism. (Not unlike a few so-called 'socialists' in

frankly. It's like what goes on in feminism echos where women have to
