Re: The decrepitude of both upper and lower blocks of strata
No condescension Faith - just respect for admitting a mistake - a virtue which I hope I share.
One of the things we're seeing over in this country, following the shift to populism, is a tendency amongst many people to believe that this means that it is now legitimate to simply dismiss all scientific work, on any subject, without any attempt to analyse it, on the basis that scientists are all members of the "liberal elite" and therefore to be swept aside. You have always tried to engage with the evidence and the science (often in ways with which we disagree), but you have always made a positive effort to argue your position.
I have great respect for that. I have none for those who would seek to brush away the strength of scientific opinion altogether.

Could there be any greater conceit, than for someone to believe that the universe has to be simple enough for them to be able to understand it ?
