Your comments are here for everyone to read. No one needs you to reinterpret them as you either fail to acknowledge retracting them, or that you don’t understand what you originally wrote.

As I commented in response to you elsewhere here, we agree that scientists carry no special status in how their views on politics or social issues should be considered. I said nothing inconsistent with that in the comment you’re replying to here.

I don’t know where to begin with all the nonsense in this comment of yours. Perhaps…I don’t know…every ‘scientist’ you named isn’t actually a scientist. Discussions can’t proceed like this.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
