What I mean by implictly is that in order to discover something it must
be out there to be discovered. That is an objective universe,( which is
the foundation of objectivism). Of course if one considers objectivism
as word for word agreement with everything Rand said I don't think
you'll find a single soul. The remark about what they publish is there
because they may be some scientists out there that consider themselves
objectivists but if they don't advertise it how would we know? Aside
from Carl Sagen and Issac Newton and a few others I don't even know the
personal beliefs of any scientists.
