    First of all, to say that "the rest of the article mentions" that "0.85 for adults is pretty commonly agreed upon" is a stretch. The article twice attributes that figure to a particular 2004 meta-analysis. Moreover, as you know, much of the controversy isn't about choosing a point estimate (or even a range).

    Second, to say that heritability is what we can gather empirical evidence for doesn't establish any obvious connection to the diary.
