Science joins Maureen Dowd on the anti-male bandwagon

The past few years I’ve come to regard the project of science as a scam. For example, we have something called quarks—entities with no properties. Amazing.Here is the article Ben sent, from ABC:
Will Chromosome Y Go Bye-Bye?Ben resumes:
That’s if the bloody thing exists in the first place. First it is what makes a man a man, then it begins to disappear … and then men will have to be redefined as Z chromosomes. The disappearance of the Y chromosome will surely cheer up Maureen Dowd (the disappearance of the white male, a consummation devoutly to be wished). I think science has become one big laughable joke—it has no authority to posit anything or challenge anyone any longer.LA replies:
The fact that science is being sytematically misused both by media and by scientists themselves does not mean that the enterprise of science itself is discredited. But I must say that even when science is not corrupted by politics and hype and self-seeking on the part of the scientists (e.g., the Norwegian who made his discovery of the 47 million year old primate “Ida” a much bigger deal than it really was, in order to win fame and money), I think that there is something askew about modern science. But that’s too large a subject for the moment.
