Rather than draw this out, let's get right to it.
Shakespeare was in actuality Edward de Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford. You can read all about it in an excellent (and the only accurate) book on the subject, Shakespeare by Another Name, by physicist Mark Anderson. If that's not enough for you, Da-da has employed what he calls the Internet Truth Barometer (the ITB), a very gifted psychic -- who's never been wrong -- on this topic and she's confirmed it. Might as well get over it. Have a nice day.
And no, Da-da received no moolah for that book plug. Da-da only peddles the truth, free of charge.
