Where is Rand's "The Horror File" (a section of The Objectivist devoted to examples of irrationality equal, or worse than, what Rand described in Atlas Shrugged) when we really need it! Try this choice example of using "scientific research" as an idelogical club: http://www.philly.co...phy__Study.html The "scientists" claim to have found that ANY thought or belief held by individuals that does not conform to the mainstream views of society - whether "born again" christians or nonbelievers - will experience "stress" that will shrink their hippocampus! No, really! According to the reporter, the researchers who performed this study come right out and say it. I wonder how these "researchers" would explain the fact that most scientific discoveries have come from those who did not conform, but instead have a critical and questioning mind?
