Let me start by saying i've not read the science delusion. However I have worked in an applied science environment for 25 years. All I can say is that my skepticism about cults and religion is only marginally more intense than my cynicism about the sanctity and purity of much of the published work done in the name of science. We know that all perception is impacted by subjectivity and that most research especially in the social and psychological sciences involves a lot of perception. We also know that what gets studied and sometimes even how it's studied is influenced by what funding is available which is always highly political and very often these days financial/profit based. Results of research these days is more predictable based on who is funding it than anything else. I have a lot more I could share on this topic but I'll stop for now.

So... Maybe my handle is quite accurate.

Thanks for the post! Love the blog!
