I hope the ellipsis conveys my skepticism adequately. If it doesn’t, my apologies. The article this came from features a scientist, errr of sorts, making that claim. Normally, I wouldn’t give it the time of day. But it’s instructive. It sounds almost serious at first, even to a quasi-informed science writer like me who knows just enough molecular bio to be completely fooled by anyone who knows a tiny bit more. But thankfully, this particular reporter, wasn’t satisfied to be a mere stenographer.

Eureka! Or rather Yahooooooooo! There it is, the crux of the matter, subtlety yet thoroughly debunked right there. Bravo to the author for not just getting it dead right in a few words, but for showing an article can be both grandiose titled linkbait and still retain the minimum decency and credibility owed any reader.
