Above, Mr. Bacon, a true flat-earther, proves to us that there are
many in this country, who would today allege that my assertion that:
1) The earth is not flat.
2) Surgeons should wash between operations in order to minimize the
spread of infection. and
3) That DNA is indeed the genetic material,
are mere biases.
Apparently we are not as civilized a species as I'd hoped.
