I smell a hint of a fallacy here - Dan won't admit there's a phenomenon
until its mechanism is plausibly explained. Hello? Were Darwin and Mendel
wrong because they didn't know about DNA? Were Galileo and Newton wrong
because they couldn't say what causes gravity?

On another hand, why should I care whether or not mathematical genius
is sex-linked?
