Thanks for a fact-based article, Yvette. To me the take-away is how far too many people are utterly ignorant and easily duped by even the most absurd stories. Sometimes it feels as if trying to get the average person to (a) grasp a basic fact, and (b) reason coherently from it is as futile as attempting to teach calculus to a goldfish.

Anyone who enjoys my articles here on Medium may be interested in my books Why Democracy Failed and The Praying Ape, both available from Amazon.
