OR NOT …
for me the only answer is yes. Yes, one hundred percent!

—he or she is always right and everyone else either wrong, incorrect, badly instructed, loopy or just plain deluded.
I FORGET THE NAME
of the unhung genius who after assiduous research reported on the Life Expectancy of a fact. Any fact. Sadly I also forget the endurance of incumbent fact(s), but it is surprisingly brief.
‘Nuff on that; on with the bleat!
“… When scientists discovered beautiful hand stencils painted on the walls of an Indonesian cave back in the 1950s, they thought the artwork was about 10,000 years old.

I recall that a year or three back someone floated the notion that the cave arts were mostly (if not all) done by wimmin brutes rather than man brutes. Perhaps they were right … and the male of the species better suited to putting out the cat and bringing in the newsrocks. Is the paradigm changing?
I have no idea. Go ask a scientist for todays opinion … but don’t quote it tomorrow because it will be yesterday’s—and there’s a finite limit on knowledge*. Just ask Virginia Steen McIntyre …
* ‘Knowledge’ is opinion. (Current opinion … so when quoting or using, always be careful to be up-to-date.)
