My rebuttal is that his work was exposed as fraudulent by his peers. Science moves on. He was a fly on the windshield, or to use another insect metaphor, a bug in the program that was identified and removed.

Actually, it was more a problem of Cinderella's sisters' toes.

Lysenko forced facts to fit preconceived scientific theories in order to justify and give scientific force to the larger philosophical/socialist theories.

Geez, Jack's been talking to my wife, apparently.

Time isn't a commodity, something you pass around like cake. Time is the substance of life. When anyone asks you to give your time, they're really asking for a chunk of your life. - Antoinette Bosco

"We are like tenant farmers chopping down the fence around our house for fuel when we should be using Nature's inexhaustible sources of energy — sun, wind and tide. ... I'd put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don't have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that."

- Thomas Edison, in a 1931 conversation with Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone.

Edison had some other good ones. My other favorite, which was my sig here for a while, is:

"Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work."

"The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things like love, meaning, motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people recognize that in life, they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation." - Neil deGrasse Tyson
