Hey, who's to say? :-)    (02)

I was actually only half-serious (probably should have added a  
smiley), but I do read things in this forum occasionally that sound  
dangerously like the "postmodernist" thesis that modern physics is no  
more true that Aristotelian physics, that science is just another  
"grand narrative" aimed to keep the powerful in power, that the  
scientific method is no better or worse a "way of knowing" than, say,  
casting lots or consulting the Book of Mormon, etc etc.  Pernicious  
nonsense, that.    (03)
