Lynn Margulis makes jaws drop

Lynn Margulis, the biologist best known for her theory of evolution via symbiogenesis as well as the Gaia hypothesis—oh, and she also happened to be Carl Sagan's wife—is on a blog tour.

On Monday, she shared her opinion about HIV/AIDS on Scienceblogs' Pharyngula.

Hi Melinda,

I was just wondering, since you're a science writer, did you write anything about this incident anywhere? It's pretty significant after all isn't it?

Or let me ask it like this:

Have you ever had any desire to shed light on that issue, or even just research the topic for yourself?

I'm just trying to understand the psychology of people in science-related sectors who simply ignore such critical topics. This is not meant as a personal attack or anything like that, just curiosity. I got a few theories of my own(social pressure, economic interest, illusion of knowledge etc.) but I'd welcome any challenge.
