I got a cultural materialist shout-out (I think)

Somebody in Spain gave my additions to the Marvin Harris Facebook page a shout-out. But I think Babelfish's translation software could use improvement:

which made illusion is to discover that Marvin Harris has its site in Facebook, one lady there to me who is called Nancy McClernan has raised in addition the video to one interviews. A taste to see in person Harris, the author who better moments have made anthropological me happen and at which I would define more as the entertained anthropologist of the history and one of the great ones of century XX, the one that obtained starting off of simple things and with simplicity to explain the causes of ideologies, traditions, customs and taboos to us based on apparent bottomless mysteries.
