Greg, the above comes across as a very arrogant, condescending
statement. Depending upon the case it may or may not be true. However
as someone who is prone to making the same kind of statements I have
learned that it is almost never helpful to state it and just invites a
bad response. Remember sometimes one turns out to be wrong.

As Jack says in a later note if you want to fight the battle for
recognition of the social sciences, this is probably not the best forum.
