LIONEL PODCAST: Scientific Illiterates Yell the Loudest

This is MRT. Mitochondrial Replacement Therapy. And believe you me, the voices will rise in objection with nary a clue as to what this even envisages or implies. And that’s the theme of today’s discourse. It works like this: I don’t like you or the main proponent of an idea who’s been attached and tethered to an idea. Or I will refer to you as a Truther, Birther, Deather, Climate Change Denier and now a Vaxxer. Or anti-Vaxxer. Or I’ll dredge up Jenny McCarthy as an example of the lunacy of the idea. Funny, Bobby Kennedy Jr.’s a different story. Anyhoo. But that’s it; you’re a loon. Insane. And then you’ll meet the folks who opine loudly yet have no idea of what the science involves or the like. This goes back to the Scopes Trial in 1925, where people were up in arms over Darwinian Mechanics and evolution and natural selection despite knowing nothing of how it even works.

Be chary, Mary. You’re probably not a physician or immunologist or autism expert. But I am an expert in civil liberties and how they devolve. And, by the by, I addressed this very topic of MRT a year ago. See infra. Can you say prescient? Vatic? Pythonic? And relevant? Enjoy.
