Objectionable nonsense

In terminology, objectionable nonsense is a statement about something that produces a powerful reaction, of vocal objection, to the point that seasoned thinkers are willing to take a stand against said statement; nonsense that is beyond ordinary nonsense. [1]

In 1932, Albert Einstein, in his interview with James Murphy (see: Einstein-Murphy dialogue), stated vocally, that the supposed conjecture or assertion, in modern science, that “physical science attributes something like free will to routine processes of organic nature”, as Murphy put things to Einstein, was not just ordinary nonsense, but "objectionable nonsense".
