Stuart A. Kauffman
“History enters when the space of the possible is vastly larger than the space of the actual.”
Stuart A. Kauffman, Reinventing the Sacred: A New View of Science, Reason and Religion

Christopher Hitchens
“The man who prays is the one who thinks that god has arranged matters all wrong, but who also thinks that he can instruct god how to put them right.”
Christopher Hitchens, Mortality

Alan Sokal
“We have seen in this book numerous ambiguous texts that can be interpreted in two different ways: as an assertion that is true but relatively banal, or as one that is radical but manifestly false. And we cannot help thinking that, in many cases, these ambiguities are deliberate. Indeed, they offer a great advantage in intellectual battles: the radical interpretation can serve to attract relatively inexperienced listeners or readers; and if the absurdity of this version is exposed, the author can always defend himself by claiming to have been misunderstood, and retreat to the innocuous interpretation.”
Alan Sokal, Fashionable Nonsense: Postmodern Intellectuals' Abuse of Science

John Tooby
“The assertion that "culture" explains human variation will be taken seriously when there are reports of women war parties raiding villages to capture men as husbands, or of parents cloistering their sons but not their daughters to protect their sons' virtue, or when cultural distributions for preferences concerning physical attractiveness, earning power, relative age, and so on show as many cultures with bias in one direction as in the other.”
John Tooby

Alfred North Whitehead
“A science that hesitates to forget its founders is lost.”
Alfred North Whitehead
