I think you may be misrepresenting him a bit. Is this a manifestation of inattentional blindness? Indirect realism? Hello William, My interests are facts, and theories which might explain those facts, bearing in mind that no theory can be `proven': a viable theory merely fits all the presently known facts - without omission. Representative facts about psychiatry and the behaviour of psychiatrists are at: http://www.ufoupdateslist.com/2012/jan/m17-006.shtml Subject: Re: Participation In Psychology Dissertation Study and at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosenhan_experiment So, after presenting the known facts and personal theoretical conclusions (if any), any arguments with those whose over-riding beliefs compel them to ignore or misrepresent known facts would be non-productive - as expressed here: www.perceptions.couk.com/warn.html#research3 Cheers Ray D BTW - will admit to the occasional provocative presentation, to flush out 'skepti-bunkers' and 'true believers' alike.
