{Repost} Dear E. O. Wilson: Please retire or stick to ants

The Social Conquest of Earth - Edward O. Wilson

This is a direct response from biologists on this book that Wilson dismissed theory without adequate research or evidence.

 

Like that kind of academic fights that value the scientific truth over respect for the person and his bullshit.

 

This is on my mind, as I was accused of not giving enough respect for bullshit and for those who hold such bullshit thoughts or beliefs.

 

My take? So what?

 

I don't respect those who held strong beliefs on bullshit. Don't like it, don't believe in bullshit.

 

This is followed by an article in New York times.
