Well, my friend (if I may make so bold...), just because scientists
have abandoned science and it's traditional embrace of the thought
that anything is possible and every new discovery is a lesson in how
little we really do know, and have instead embraced mammon and the
search for pre-ordained conclusions, it doesn't mean that scientific
protocols have gone in the shitter. They are a good way to keep
research honest, in the hopes of someday having said research more
widely accepted.

I will agree, wholeheartedly, with the need for a more zen-like
mindset on the part of investigators: "Suchness" recognized is a lot
more important to learning the truth through research than being lead
around by the ring in one's nose by one's illusions and agendas.

Sure, but most of academia has become a money-grubbing dogpile. They
aren't gonna publish research that hacks off their endowers and their
agendas. As you well and truly know, money people give to education
with a quid pro quo attached. The output of university research is
the result.

I wonder if Mikey Angelo or Galileo had an Auntie Maude kicking them
in the glutes? ;')

Tenure, old-boy clusters and research fundage. Extrapolated baboon-
pack behaviour.
