    Peter Gabel’s “spiritual” biology is close to what existed before the Enlightenment. It didn’t get us very far then, did it? Having a few hundred years of more clear-minded study behind us we now have science as a target for the spiritualists to shoot at. It makes them feel good, and it does nothing to weaken science.
