MM: Are you suggesting that Gould had something to do with the holocaust?
Yuk Margaret, you can sure be a tad nasty at times—ever wonder why you display such obscenities? . . . oh, that’s right, it’s your lack of free will and moral responsibility. Regarding Gould’s Marxism, if you Google it you’ll get thousands of hits; but in the meantime, here’s a blip from Wikipedia:
. . . Gould did not formally practice any organized religion, and preferred to be called an agnostic. He was a committed progressive, once stating "I learned my Marx at my father's knee," co-founding with Lewontin and their allies the movement and magazine Science for the People, and serving on the advisory board of the journal Rethinking Marxism and of the Brecht Forum, sponsor of the New York Marxist School.
Hope that helps you understand that "cause celebre" you referred to. Have a lovely day Margaret.
