    Yeah, I suppose so. I'm genuinely surprised that I'm getting resistance to my view though. It seems so absolutely and overwhelmingly obvious. I've even discussed this with friends and co-workers, and they tend to be seeing the same thing. Maybe it's just a regional thing, but that seems unlikely to me. I don't know. Very strange.

    Maybe (and I don't know this) it's a situation where we tend to notice those not like us more than we do those like us?
    Every problem is the result of a previous solution.

    I think that's very likely, and a good reminder to examine ourselves before we find fault everywhere else.

For instance, "scientific evidence" suggests that prayer does not work. I know that prayer works though. I've seen it work personally dozens of times. I'm convinced it works even if I can't argue scientifically for it's efficacy. Personal anecdote is evidence, though it may not always be convincing evidence.
    Er, you're comparing something that can be measured to something that can't be tested. God, omniscient, and not a trained poodle.

    I'd argue that there's something wrong with both types of measurements/testing. I've experienced both things in real life. Personally even! I'm being told that both things are not the way things truly are. Something is off. It could be me. It could be the parameters and/or methods of testing.
