Speaking of "myths"

My brother, a guy who has been terrifically supportive of me, is an atheist. Over dinner he was talking about the superiority of the scientific method over "faith bias," which allows people to rejects facts that do not cohere with their "faith" narrative.

And yet, love the man though I do, he is a dyed-in-the-wool Obama-loving, Trump-hating liberal.

So he believes in the "myth" of human group equality.


For which there is not only no evidence but against which the evidence is massive.

Faith bias.

One man's myth is another man's... myth.

Has your lovely brother who us too good for this world every heard of confirmation bias? The only downside is, even when they are truly sweet people and that is why they believe in all of their equality nonsense, that would likely start a fight that both of you would just outright regret.
