In the beginning it was Religion is just superstition so "keep your rosaries off my ovaries" now it is science that is just superstition so "keep your chromosome off my ovum".
Opinion is ALL that matters.
"The modern mind will accept nothing on authority, but will accept anything on no authority. Say that the Bible or the Pope says so and it will be dismissed without further examination. But preface your remark with “I think I heard somewhere,” or, try but fail to remember the name of some professor who might have said “such-and-such,” and it will be immediately accepted as an unshakable fact."- GKC
