It's impossible to discuss this topic rationally with people who constantly cite absolutes from personal authority as if that's worth more than a piece of stale cheese.

First a test is proposed.

Then you jump to the conclusion...forsaking the test...7 days later.

I won't mention all the disputed results of testing so far. They've been debated to death.

But I will stress that until the right tests are done...the jury is still out

Or...you can provide evidence for someone else, some other time, for some other reason
