I wasn’t being condescending. I was explaining the process of discovery in academic research, because you said she seemed to have found what she set out to find. Based on your problem with Professor Matthews’ “assersions” etc. you didn’t seem to get that this kind of work starts with a hypothesis. But if you are familiar with academic research, great. But there was not a darn thing condescending about what I wrote. It was informational. And I didn’t (and neither did Professor Matthews) claim it was the “TRUTH”. Really? But numbers still don’t lie.
