If we can agree that a fact is an actual or potential occurrence in objective reality --as I wrote earlier--then photosynthesis was always a fact. Photosynthesis wasn't always a concept but it was always a fact.

Props for trying, Chippy, but if he refused to acknowlege that before, I don't think it's likely he'll do so now.

Not that I'd mind being surprised.
