I clicked the link for the story expecting to read some details that supported the headline and the small snippet of information quoted from the
story. I was *stunned* to find that the quoted snippet comprises the entire article. No details on how the study was conducted. No details
on what evidence was used to make the controversial claim in the article's title. Frankly, the whole article seems to be completely devoid of
anything that even remotely resembles a fact or even a valid hypothesis. Furthermore, the second paragraph states that the claim appeared in a Dutch
magazine for graduate students. It wasn't even peer reviewed!!
Science reporting in the US is dismal at best, and this is one of the worst examples I have ever seen. IMHO, if ATSNN's really intends to establish
itself as a reputable news portal, this story should be moved immediately until the author can provide some actual evidence that backs the claim in
the headline. If all I have to go on is what has been linked to here, it isn't news, and it isn't science.
