I have a lot of respects for artisans and craftsman since they usually take great care into their science ;) Not much about the description of the world through the eyes of sloppy object minds and concepts.

Perhaps, a better analogy would be to compare the explanations of the world through the eyes of OO crowd as the explanations of how to turn lead into gold. In other words, OO crowd are the nothing else than the alchemists of computer science.
