Alan Sokal wishes to laugh at sociologists and members of other academic areas than his, using their own silly misinterpretations, and his own reductionist attitude. One should remind him of the words of a physicist, far greater than he, Albert Einstein, who said words to the effect: Whomseover sets himself up as the unique arbiter of truth and knowledge invites upon himself the laughter of the Gods.

in his book "what is mathematics?", one of the leading mathematicians of the last century, courant, describes a proof that stretches to many pages and was as yet unverified beyond doubt, but accepted to be true. this is just one example of how science is neither a non-human objective affair and proceeds through the use of both formal proof mechanisms and the use of human intuition. it is also an example of how dense and impenetrable scientific literature is to not only the layman, but even to experts in the field. various "discoveries" and "theories" of science have at various times been refuted, disproved and rejected due to a wide range of reasons ranging from errors in reasoning to misrepresentation of data. at the time of their acceptance, they were published in the leading technical journals of their time and accepted into the body of knowledge as truths. there is no better way for human knowledge to progress. the only thing that sokal's cute trick proves is that the publishers of non-natural science journals are more welcoming of external contribution than those who edit scientific journals.
