Excellent illustration, Ruth, of the all-too-common false equivalence assigned to an opposing opinion! (At Fox News there was a memo from upper management to never mention climate change without also mentioning that it's "disputed".)

The speculative opposing view gets more apparent weight if propounded by a person in a business suit, or a clerical collar.
