Which implies he has a divine right to figure in a theory for physics. No,
you don't, Jacques. Human identity does not figure in any physical theory;
it is merely a useful social construct.

I was gratified to hear Jacques call me 'stupid': ad hominem attacks are
usually the precursor of a revelation by the attacker that his cherished
argument is indefensible.
