And this really brings me back to my point, that we do a poor job of truly understanding science, statistics and cause and effect.

We assume social science studies are giving us the “right” answer for how to educate people, or train them for the best outcomes, without considering what we are teaching them about the larger world. We assume that we can tweak one belief, or one thing, without human beings reacting to those changes in unpredictable ways, all the while thinking our one change will cause the reaction we DO predict.

I’ve been at this blog for almost 19 years. Are you sure it’s still me writing these posts? Did I disappear and just leave it on autopilot to write posts for me long after I’m gone?

Are you sure you would know if I did?

Not everything is as it appears. We could all use a lot more skepticism, especially on topics we are already biased to believe.… Read More
