man will be safe. One man may say this—and another may say that—it may be

Can you prove that hypothesis beyond a reasonable doubt? Will you convict
without such proof? But let's imagine you're right. Let's imagine that identical
twins raised in identical environments don't always agree and that part of their
disagreement cannot be attributed to chance. This fragment of variability might be
