But I've got no love for any of the companies in that field, so I'm fine with hurting other GMO companies in addition to Monsanto.
That's silly. You're free to create a market demand so that you are the one paying for it though, but don't drag the rest of us into it.
Given that I don't really see an upside to GMO crops, I don't really see a need to reexamine what I've heard.
Considering the rate of adoption among farmers, maybe you should reconsider your take on that one. Reduced insecticide use, better weed management, no-till promotion, saving the Hawaiian papaya industry, and higher yield are all proven and well documented benefits.
Now you're just being obtuse.
The silliness of both situations was kind of the point. I know the difference between theory the scientific term and theory the common vernacular. You can be intentionally misleading with accurate terms, just like misuse of food labeling can be misleading even if accurate.
