Chuck contradicts himself

Chuck  Your post about false Soviet science and my post about false 
American science, both posted on March 16, follows.  The association 
of science and humanitarian concerns was introduced by you.  Your 
denial of the connection between science and human rights after you 
first linked the two indicates contradictory intentions.  

March 16

The Soviet Union's research also showed that acquired characteristics
could be inherited, and, based on using those theories in the 
Ukraine, starved to death several hundred thousand people in what is 
one of the most fertile areas of the world. Of course, they fixed 
the research by turning those people into unpersons.

It is difficult to take Soviet research into much of anything 

March 16

The American Medical Association claimed to heal orthopedic 
problems, epilepsy, hernias and lunacy with circumcision, and 
endorsed billions of unnecessary genital mutilations.  Lewis Sayre, 
president of the AMA, faked miraculous cures with circumcision.  The 
pain caused to infant boys, disfiguring them for a lifetime with no 
medical benefit, is brutal and exemplifies the term "vandal spirit" 
that Judge used.  The main difference between faking scientific 
evidence in America and the Soviet Union is the political machinery 
used to accomplish it.  

Bad American science by the AMA does not discredit all American 
science anymore than all Soviet science can be discredited because 
some is bad.

Best regards,
