Rand was sometimes full of shi*

Isaac Newton was a profoundly religious man.

So, he must have been deluded when he wrote Pricipia Matematica according to Rand - which of course is ridiculous. Of course he was not deluded nor did he "take a shortcut to knowledge".

Such blanket statements like the one Rand made are collectivist in nature, do you not see that? In other words, she allows NO EXCEPTION for a truly exceptional INDIVIDUAL like Newton.

Which of course makes Rand's statement illogical.
