very good points here, and inspiration for me as well! again and again we see, as in Phinney's case, once they start defending a hypothesis, reason goes out the window! anything that doesn't agree is a paradox -- i'm beginning to despise that word. and when something REALLY threatens their little worldview, they get their noses in the air and start talking about ... harvard or something. ;-)
You nailed it, Brash.
Thank you Sidereal! Tess, yes, it was disappointing to have him seem so rigid, even though I think his tinkering of the original Atkins plan works better for lots of people. I am just not sure I am one of them (or WAS one of them....next post on the way!)
I would have expected that terminal-degree crap to be coming out of the "perfect" or "whole" camp not the LC camp. Everyone knows we are the ones that didn't go to Harvard.
