Don't get me wrong; I thought Stafford
said some interesting and provocative things
at a high level which, even if they are merely a tease, are a decent contribution to the library. His short suit is just something to forgive.
Stafford wrote:
"However, almost everyone wants the world explained to them in a manner such that their intuition will give them the correct answer. Now doesn't that strike you as a rather stupid and short sighted theme to use in trying to understand the world."

Stafford has no good basis for explaining how
billions of persons think. At least he has cited none. If he is correct, there is still
the need to support his description of other persons better than he has before
calling their adaptation "stupid."
