There are no merits to the OP as it is based upon a completely discredited source. What is interesting is that certain people believe that all ideas have equal value and deserve equal consideration. According to that philosophy, humanity would still be making tools out of rock and living in caves because we would waste our time constantly re-evaluating old discredited ideas. And you do not even follow your own self-described policy. If you did, you would not be calling Trump a liar and assuming an "esteemed scientist" is telling the truth. Such labels betray your personal bias.
