Geek Thoughts: all too true

From Jeffrey D. Kooistra’s April 2009 Alternate View column in Analog magazine:

If there is one thing that has become clear in the twenty years since the advent of [Cold Fusion], it is that presenting the straight scientific facts in straight prose and to a significant level of detail doesn’t sway set-in-concrete, or even set-in-Jell-O, opinions one damn bit.

All too true. None of us can clam be be without bias, and a surprisingly large percentage of problems in the world stem from this.
