00DAD, Good post! Great subject!
I am just wondering... so I must inquire, how can you be certain that what you have written doesn't affirm your own confirmation bias?
In other words, how can you be certain that the "backfire effect" hasn't taken effect in you?
00DAD REPLIED!!!Rip Van Winkle- No, I can't be certain that what IU have written doesn't affirm my own confirmation bias. Fortunately I have all you guys to call me on it!
00DAD- thanks for answering and with complete honesty!!!
Sometimes when I ask questions here, they are completely ignored and dismissed.
