"You have to expect that people will misread a perfectly clear statement that beliefs corrupt perceptions as supporting their own particular beliefs." - Dr. Laughlin
I agree that his statement was perfectly clear, but I think *you* are the one who is “misreading” it. Actually, I get the impression that you are simply *ignoring* it because it doesn’t fit well with your outlook and your ideological agenda. Please tell me what part of it I am misreading!
Perhaps you are referring to this part:
Evolution by natural selection, for instance, which Charles Darwin originally conceived as a great theory, has lately come to function more as an antitheory, called upon to cover up embarrassing experimental shortcomings and legitimize findings that are at best questionable and at worst not even wrong.
Not even wrong? What do you suppose that means?
Oh, one more thing. You are quoting his response to someone else’s use of his quote as if it applies to me. Your “logic” escapes me.
