Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
He is not entirely a hypocrite here, as he is basically saying:

whilst [math modelling] may be appropriate for examining the stresses in metals, [absorption and re-emission of background radiation] or looking at the Universe [even with the 90% punch] it is not appropriate for ... examining stresses in humans or other lifeforms.

So he has an excuse of distinguishing a couple of kinds of intelligence.

Economics is politics by other means
