Give it up, Miles. It doesn't matter if it's a metaphor, simile, analogy or dead in the water research program. Some folks are hard wired to believe we're hard wired as they operationalize Carrol's platitudes on the death of persuasion.

Besides, I can't spell so I have to be wrong no matter what current neuroscience, immunology and intestinal bacteriology "say."
