i don't see anything hoax-y about this article at all.... some prof sees 
marx describe elliptical motion of pairs of bodies about each other as a 
form of solved contradiction and an application of the dialectical 
method in nature and writes a paper about it... i havent read the whole 
thing - its longgggggggggg - and the physics could be tightened up ... 
buts its kind of interesting from a philosophy of science perspective.

maybe i have the right level of expectation for the journal that others 
do not.
