I don't think we are doing science we are discussing why some ideas are acceptable and others not ? Why should a software developer like Bill Gates be listened to and not a scientist like Mike Yeadon ? which is the more malign influence ? Bill and his money?
After Bill Gates responded with "well he's dead now, so..." when asked about his time with Jeffrey Epstein, I'd personally be taking every single thing Bill Gates has done, is doing or will do with a massive pinch of salt.
