“this is a term used to describe the circumstance when the same event is given contradictory interpretations by different individuals involved. the term derives from 
akira kurosawa
‘s 1950 film 
rashomon
, in which a murder involving four individuals (suspects, witnesses, and surviving victims) is described in four mutually contradictory ways. more broadly, the term addresses the motivations, mechanism, and occurrences of the reporting on the circumstance, and so addresses contested interpretations of events, the existence of disagreements regarding the evidence of events, and the subjects of subjectivity versus objectivity in human perception, memory, and reporting.”

facts:
the more time you spend running on a treadmill, the more calories you will burn.
taller people have larger shoe sizes and shorter people have smaller shoe sizes.
the more hours you spend in direct sunlight, the more severe your sunburn.
as the temperature goes up, ice cream sales also go up.
the more gasoline you put in your car, the farther it can go.
as a child grows, so does his clothing size.
the more one exercises, the more weight one will lose
reading will make a person more intelligent
paying people more will increase productivity
a happy worker is a productive worker
the longer one is married, the happier they are
lowering taxes will create jobs and improve the economy

“the great secret of true success, of true happiness, is this: the man or woman who asks for no return, the perfectly unselfish person, is the most successful.”
“if people in the media cannot decide whether they are in the business of reporting news or manufacturing propaganda, it is all the more important that the public understand that difference, and choose their news sources accordingly.”
“find out for yourself what is truth, what is real. discover that there are virtuous things and there are non-virtuous things. once you have discovered for yourself give up the bad and embrace the good.”
“in all things i have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the lord jesus, how he himself said, ‘it is more blessed to give than to receive.”
america would be great again
a man asked muhammad what was the mark whereby he might know the reality of his faith. muhammad said, “if thou derive pleasure from the good which thou hast performed and thou be grieved for the evil which thou hast committed, thou art a true believer.” the man said. “in what doth a fault really consist?” muhammad said, “when action pricketh thy conscience, forsake it.”
“before someone will get the guts to monitor your life, he must get the keyboard of humility. to be a humble person, is a priority in leadership!”
“it’s easy to stand in the crowd but it takes courage to stand alone”

we shall listen, not lecture; learn, not threaten. we will enhance our safety by earning the respect of others and showing respect for them. in short, our foreign policy will rest on the traditional american values of restraint and empathy, not on military might.

his 100 day plan: put women back into the kitchen by repealing roe versus wade. eliminate income inequality by giving more money and tax breaks to the rich hoping some of it will “trickle” down. build up a military that is already as large as the next ten largest militaries in the world combined. put more people in prison who are trying to get into this country for a better life. we already have the largest prison population in the world. sue his accusers for having the temerity to call him on his sexual predation and assaults. build a big big wall to employ millions of laid off american workers. finally, repeal obama care and replace it with something great. any more new fucking ideas moron?

without data, you’re just another person with an opinion.
“facts or information used usually to calculate, analyze, or plan something
“look beyond the numbers you see to what they mean and understand how the numbers presented may not fully capture the important details you need to consider.”
statistics abuse and me
rashomon effect. 
“this is a term used to describe the circumstance when the same event is given contradictory interpretations by different individuals involved. the term derives from 
akira kurosawa
‘s 1950 film 
rashomon
, in which a murder involving four individuals (suspects, witnesses, and surviving victims) is described in four mutually contradictory ways. more broadly, the term addresses the motivations, mechanism, and occurrences of the reporting on the circumstance, and so addresses contested interpretations of events, the existence of disagreements regarding the evidence of events, and the subjects of subjectivity versus objectivity in human perception, memory, and reporting.”
(we will discuss the concepts of objectivity and credibility in more depth when we discuss truth in part 5 of this article.)
next week in part 4, we will look at the concept of evidence and the how this concept informs our search for the truth.

no man is an island entire of itself; every man
is a piece of the continent, a part of the main;
if a clod be washed away by the sea, europe
is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as
well as any manner of thy friends or of thine
own were; any man’s death diminishes me,
because i am involved in mankind.
and therefore never send to know for whom
the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.

“i again saw under the sun that the race is not to the swift and the battle is not to the strong, and neither is bread to the wise nor riches to those of intelligence and understanding nor favor to men of ability; but time and chance overtake them all.” — ecclesiastes 9:11

“the great secret of true success, of true happiness, is this: the man or woman who asks for no return, the perfectly unselfish person, is the most successful.”
“if people in the media cannot decide whether they are in the business of reporting news or manufacturing propaganda, it is all the more important that the public understand that difference, and choose their news sources accordingly.”

“before someone will get the guts to monitor your life, he must get the keyboard of humility. to be a humble person, is a priority in leadership!”
“it’s easy to stand in the crowd but it takes courage to stand alone”

we shall listen, not lecture; learn, not threaten. we will enhance our safety by earning the respect of others and showing respect for them. in short, our foreign policy will rest on the traditional american values of restraint and empathy, not on military might.

“americans need to educate themselves, from elementary school onward, about what their country has done abroad.  and they need to play a more active role in ensuring that what the united states does abroad is not merely in keeping with a foreign policy elite’s sense of realpolitik but also with the american public’s own sense of american values.”
his 100 day plan: put women back into the kitchen by repealing roe versus wade. eliminate income inequality by giving more money and tax breaks to the rich hoping some of it will “trickle” down. build up a military that is already as large as the next ten largest militaries in the world combined. put more people in prison who are trying to get into this country for a better life. we already have the largest prison population in the world. sue his accusers for having the temerity to call him on his sexual predation and assaults. build a big big wall to employ millions of laid off american workers. finally, repeal obama care and replace it with something great. any more new fucking ideas moron?

we shall listen, not lecture; learn, not threaten. we will enhance our safety by earning the respect of others and showing respect for them. in short, our foreign policy will rest on the traditional american values of restraint and empathy, not on military might. http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/quotes/t/theodorec413180.html?src=t_american_values

aging capriciously fads, foibles, follies and myths of growing old home about facts, data, evidence and the search for truth – part 5 – roadblocks to the truth 04 dec 2016 4 comments by johnpersico in uncategorized tags: bias, biases, delusion, denial, emotions, fallacies, heuristics, lies, truth if you have been following my series on searching for the truth, you will now understand the role of facts, data and evidence in truth seeking.  unfortunately, understanding these concepts is not enough.  regardless of how many facts or how much data and evidence you collect, it is no guarantee that you will find the truth.  the problem is that there are some substantial roadblocks that often blind us to the truth.  in the final part of my series on truth searching, i will review some of the major roadblocks that hinders or obscures or search for the truth. overview: a further constraint to truth searching is that we almost always rely on one of four ways of knowing before we accept the truth.  i have discussed these in previous blogs, but will briefly touch on them again to demonstrate how they both help and hinder our search for the truth. there are four general ways that have been identified which could be called methods or strategies for seeking and accepting the truth.  collecting facts, data and evidence are generally indicative of rational thinking, but that strategy is not the only pathway to the truth.  many people rely on one or more of these other methods.  the four stratagems to truth searching are: by authority (someone in authority tells you what to believe) by experience ( some life experience you had conditioned your thoughts) by rational thinking (you have some facts, data or evidence you trust) by tradition (your tribe, family, culture etc., has always done it this way) for a more detailed discussion of these four strategies, please see my blog “how do i know what to believe” there are strengths and weaknesses to each of these strategies.  by themselves, they are not roadblocks to the truth but they carry the potential for obscuring the truth.  these strategies become barriers to the truth when they are distorted by the numerous biases and roadblocks.  the majority of the ones that i will discuss fall under the following headings: denial delusion heuristics/cognitive biases fallacies ideology emotional biases denial: denial generally means that we refuse to accept any logic, evidence, experience, data, facts, authority or any other means of truth finding.  it is an outright refusal to accept anything that will change the deniers mind.  one example of this is the current debate (at least among some) as to the issue of global warming.  climate deniers argue that there is no change in the overall earth’s temperatures and that the warming is simply consistent with overall weather patterns in the earth’s history.  those opposed to this view point to a considerable stockpile of evidence, facts and data to show that the weather changes are not part of a historical pattern but are indeed a change in past weather patterns.  nevertheless, climate deniers refuse to change their minds. two questions arise from this issue.  first, why do they so consistently refuse to accept any logic?  second, how can we change their minds? the answer to the first question is simple.  people who deny the obvious are protecting their self-image.  for these people to change their minds is to admit that they are wrong.  this is not easy for many people.  an article by the mojo company identifies the following five reasons why people will not admit that they are wrong:  “why is it so hard for people to admit they’re wrong?” defensiveness equating identity and actions pride experiencing shame instead of guilt believing apologizing equals absolution for everyone else  some other reasons that could be added to this list include: avoidance of negative emotions lack of empathy lifestyle protection  this brings us to the second question:  “how can we change their minds.”  it should be quite obvious that no amount of rational or cognitive argument is going to be persuasive with such people.  research into this question has been ongoing.  here is one answer to the question: “a comprehensive study published in 2015 in nature surveyed 6,000 people across 24 countries and found that emphasizing the shared benefits of climate change was an effective way of motivating people to take action—even if they initially identified as deniers. for example, people were more likely to take steps to mitigate climate change if they believe that it will produce economic and scientific development. most importantly, these results were true across political ideology, age, and gender.”  —- you need to get inside the mind of a climate change denier if you want to change it — neha thirani bagri what is our “take away” then in terms of dealing with someone who is engaged in denial?  i think some points might be helpful to remember: you cannot argue them out of their positions. facts, evidence and data are useless. empathy for others may be impossible or fruitless. my final answer to the second question based on recent research as well as years of fruitless arguments, is that the primary path to change for someone engaged in denial is what might be called “enlightened self-interest.”  self-interest may be the only path to a productive solution.  meaning that if you want to change someone’s mind, you might as well forget about it.  however, if you want to change someone’s behavior, then the solution is to find a path for them to change based on their own self-interest.  e.g. lower their taxes, create jobs for their children, raise their income levels, or improve their lifestyle.  sad but true, much change in the world is not based on logic or facts or even empathy. delusion: when we say that someone is delusional, it usually means that we think they are out of their mind or that they are engaging in some fantasy.  we ignore what they are saying because it is too remote from reality to even consider.  it is drastically over the top thinking.  the google dictionary definition of delusion is: “an idiosyncratic belief or impression that is firmly maintained despite being contradicted by what is generally accepted as reality or rational argument, typically a symptom of mental disorder.” thus, we typically ignore or give a pass to someone who is “delusional” because we think either they are sick or that they are not in a good state to make decisions.  no sane person would try to talk or argue a person who is delusional out of their delusions.  however, what if the person is sane and they engage in delusions?  this seems impossible but it happens all the time.  one example will suffice:  anderson cooper was interviewing some trump supporters on his show.  he asked one young woman what it was she liked about trump.  her response was “he is just like us, except he is a billionaire.”  millions of americans seemed (if voting was any indication) to agree with this statement.  to any logical person looking at the background, upbringing and behavior of trump, this statement would seem ludicrous.  it would seem to indicate an extreme case of delusional thinking.  but, by all standards of psychiatric analysis, this woman and her supporters are not insane. i use the above example to show that delusional thinking is not only the property of insane people, but it is actually a common state for millions of people all over the world.  here are some other examples: lottery ticket buyers gamblers people who think that places like heaven and hell exist people who believe in ghosts and spirits people who love to believe in conspiracy theories people who automatically accept every urban myth on the internet people who believe implicitly in horoscopes or astrology people who believe implicitly in the power of science to save the world looking at my list, you have probably found yourself in one of the above groups.  in fact, most of the human race fits in one or more of the above examples.  but, you answer: “i am not delusional. your system and concept is all wrong.  everyone else does the same thing.  the casinos and churches are full of people who think just like i do.”  yes, you are right.  millions of people engage in delusions every day.  delusions are often what helps us get through the day.  delusions are fed by hope that some reality is going to change.  but if we consider a belief in a horoscope as a fact, we are delusional.  facts, evidence and data all show that horoscopes are phony, bogus, irrelevant superstitions that have no basis in reality.  my mother loved to read her horoscope and also to occasionally go to a fortune teller.  my mother was convinced that she would be rich some day and leave all her children a million dollars each.  when my mother died, all she left us were bills for her funeral. “a delusion is a belief that is held with strong conviction despite superior evidence to the contrary. as a pathology, it is distinct from a belief based on false or incomplete information, confabulation, dogma, illusion, or other effects of perception.” — wikipedia based on the above definition, i could argue that anyone who thinks they will win the lottery is delusional.  if the evidence is a 100,000,000 million to one against you winning and you still buy a ticket, are you being logical or delusional?  if you believe in heaven and hell, but no one in the history of the human race has been there and back, are you being logical or delusional?  i state these points to demonstrate the utter impossibility of changing anyone’s mind who is delusional or who subscribes to some delusion.  whether it is you who are sane or your crazy cousin, anyone who is subscribes to some delusion is beyond rational experience and logic.  no amount of arguing will change your mind or your cousin’s mind. “there is some wisdom in the adage not to attempt to argue a delusion away. by definition, delusions are tenaciously held despite presentation of contrary evidence. how certain are we of anything? how might you respond if someone told you, you are not who you believe yourself to be? most people are likely to defend their belief about who they are and this is also true for delusions.”  — responding therapeutically to disturbing beliefs, by richard lakeman © 2003 what is the take away then here?  can we find a way to the truth through a delusion?  the simple answer is that we are all going to face people who have one or more delusions in their lives.  whatever the delusion they hold, it is the absolute truth to them.  i do not believe there is any way you are going to talk or argue them out of it.  if anyone can find an antidote to delusional thinking, i hope you will share your solution in my blog comments area. heuristics: in 1984, while i was in my ph.d. program at the university of minnesota, i discovered the book judgment under uncertainty: heuristics and biases by d. kahneman and a. tversky.  it was one of the most influential and important books i have ever read.  in 2002, daniel kahneman won the nobel prize in economics for his work on decision making.  kahneman was one of the pioneers in the emerging discipline of behavioral economics.  this discipline would go on to show that the concept of rationality in economic decision making was severely flawed. the basic premise of the work by kahneman and others in his field is that while most of us try to be logical and rational, our decision making is often flawed by biases and heuristics that influence our decisions.  the book judgment under uncertainty catalogs the major types of cognitive errors that we make and gives many examples of each.  one of the most common ones that many people recognize has been called the “gamblers fallacy.”  let us say that you are rolling a dice.  the odds of any one number being rolled are 6 to 1.  so let us say that you roll four three times in a row.  what are the odds that you will roll a 4 on your next toss?  higher or lower than 6 to 1?  many if not most people would now assume the odds against rolling another four might be 30 or even 40 to one.  in fact, the odds for rolling a four on the next toss are still 6-1.  this fact would surprise many people.  mentally, we confuse the odds of an individual toss with the odds of running a series.  the odds of rolling four in a row on a dice are much greater than the odds of rolling any particular number.  what are the odds of rolling a number four times in a row on a dice?  we can calculate it as follows: there are 6 possible outcomes where the dice are all the same: 1-1-1-1 2-2-2-2 3-3-3-3 4-4-4-4 5-5-5-5 6-6-6-6 there are a total of 1296 outcomes for any four dice –> 6 x 6 x 6 x 6 = 1296.   so the probability is 6/1296 or 1/216.  in other words, the probability is over 200 to 1 against rolling any number four times in a row.  the probability of rolling a number on any particular throw though does not change.  it is still and always will be 6 to 1. there are too many biases to list in this blog, in fact over a hundred different biases exist and more are being found on a regular basis.  wikipedia has a list at:  “list of cognitive biases.”  this list is broken down into the following three categories of cognitive biases: 1  decision-making, belief, and behavioral biases 2  social biases 3  memory errors and biases there is a great deal of information on these biases but the key issues and thus questions that concerns us is how do these biases affect our search for the truth and what can we do to overcome these biases? the answer to the first question is simple.  they hide and distort the truth from us.  if we misperceive the possibility or likelihood of anything happening, we fail to make accurate judgements. the answer to the second question, whether or not we can overcome their biases can be summed up by the following reply: yes and no. yes, we can provide information and education that can help to show the bias or error in their thinking.  keep in mind that it will be hard for some people to accept what you are telling them.  for instance, in explaining the gambler’s fallacy, the more number oriented a person is the easier it will be for them to understand the fallacy. no, you cannot change anyone’s bias with new information when you are talking about things that are outside their belief system.  they must have a framework in which to incorporate the data, evidence and facts that you try to provide them.  such frameworks vary in complexity but they can be taught. fallacies: a fallacy is an error in reasoning.  however, so is a faulty heuristic; so how can we tell them apart?  in fact, i don’t know if you always can and i am not sure it really is important.  looking at the online internet encyclopedia of philosophy, it states that: “researchers disagree about how to define the very term “fallacy.” focusing just on fallacies in sense (a) above, namely fallacies of argumentation, some researchers define a fallacy as an argument that is deductively invalid or that has very little inductive strength.”  no doubt many biases can fall in either category as a heuristic or a fallacy.  an error in reasoning or a bias can be due to many causes.  the common denominator to both categories is that we are talking about errors in cognition or cognitive biases rather than emotional biases.  you would think that would make these types of biases more subject to rationale argument but as i have noted above, that does not seem to be the case.  people hold on to their biases whether cognitive or emotional with an iron fisted tenacity. the internet encyclopedia of philosophy lists approximately 218 different fallacies.  many of these, i confess to never having heard of.  it would probably take another encyclopedia to catalog all of the reasons for the different fallacies.  i am surprised there are no ph.d. degrees for fallacy finding. after even a slight perusal of these fallacies, you might be thinking: “why bother, we can never find the truth, there are too many roadblocks out there.”  it probably seems like a hopeless task, something akin to finding the holy grail or the ten commandments.  i admit that the recent presidential election and its results would seem to support the invincible nature of stupidity and ignorance.  the world seems overwhelmed with those who would dwell in biases, bigotry and hypocrisy and have little interest in finding the truth.  the truth becomes whatever they are told or choose to believe.  the media parrots disinformation, misinformation and outright lies.  how can anyone find the truth amidst this forest of propaganda and distortion? nevertheless, if i succumbed to total despair, i would not be writing this.  as the line goes: “hope springs eternal in the human breast; man never is, but always to be blest. the soul, uneasy, and confined from home, rests and expatiates in a life to come.”  — alexander pope, an essay on man so, i have hopes that if even one person out there reading my blog has a second thought or an insight garnered by my somewhat tedious prose, i will be blest and perhaps have made a slight difference. ideology: an ideology is something you believe in.  dictionary.com defines an ideology as: the body of doctrine, myth, belief, etc., that guides an individual, social movement, institution, class, or large group. such a body of doctrine, myth, etc., with reference to some political and social plan, as that of fascism, along with the devices for putting it into operation. one of the most unnerving but interesting books i have ever read was the book “true believer” by eric hoffer.  this book explains the thinking or lack of thinking behind zealots, fanatics and what hoffer calls “true believers.”  after reading this book, it was clear to me that ideologies, whether left wing, right wing, fascist or even liberal could be dangerous.  the greek golden mean “all things in moderation” kept coming to my mind.  a “true believer” will not tolerate or listen to dissent or argument.  they are so convinced that their way is the only way that dialogue and discussion with them is fruitless.  in fact, many “true believers” will happily kill you for their ideology. most ideologies seem to revolve around either religion or politics.  probably one reason why people always say not to discuss these subjects with strangers.  the strong feelings that these subjects evoke have been the cause of much violence throughout history.  many blame religious ideologies as the main cause for wars in history.  however, there is a dissenting view that says non-religious ideologies bear the blame for the most wars and the most deaths throughout history.  “the truth is, non-religious motivations and naturalistic philosophies bear the blame for nearly all of humankind’s wars.  lives lost during religious conflict pales in comparison to those experienced during the regimes who wanted nothing to do with the idea of god – something showcased in r. j. rummel’s work lethal politics and death by government.”  — the myth that religion is the #1 cause of war people steeped in an ideology have natural blinders on to the truth.  they are convinced that they already have the truth and they have no interest in truth seeking.  in the history of wars in the usa, we can see the impact of american ideology on the world.  we seem to be constantly involved in wars to spread democracy and free enterprise.  we are blinded to the downsides of both these ideologies.  in fact, most americans do not see them as ideologies but as virtues that they want to share with the rest of the world. furthermore, because our ideologies are so good, we cannot believe that anyone has the right to reject them.  we do not care if the rest of the world does not want to share them, we will bomb and kill you until you see how good our ideologies are.  we are totally closed minded in our belief that democracy and free enterprise are truly universal virtues that the rest of the world must adopt.  we have become a nation of true believers in the “american dream.” what is the antidote to ideological thinking?  can we talk someone into seeing a new gestalt or world view?  i would never want to say it is impossible, but it is damn difficult.  nevertheless, examples abound throughout history of people who have changed their mind.  some examples in america include: abraham lincoln (believed that slavery was evil but changed his mind about what to do about it) malcolm x (who once believed that all white people were devils) george wallace (who believed in racial segregation) robert mcnamara (who believed in the value of the vietnam war) barack obama (changed his position on gay marriage jeff bezos founder of amazon believes that consistency of thought is not particularly a positive trait. it is better, even healthier in fact, to have an idea that contradicts one you had before.  smart people constantly revise their understandings of a matter. they reconsider problems they thought they had solved. they are open to new points of view, new information, and challenges to their own ways of thinking.  — the smart people change their minds emotional biases: we have come to the last category in my list of obstacles to truth seeking.  in many respects, this is the largest category in terms of biases and also encompasses the biases that are the most difficult to change.  someone who has an emotional bias is usually beyond the pall of argument and rational dialogue.  to understand this, let us take the following example.  we have chloe who is in love with michael.  chloe plans to marry michael and her parents are dead against it.  michael in their view is unreliable, untrustworthy and prone to anger and unpredictable acts.  they can see no reason why chloe loves michael.  question:  what arguments or logic, or facts, or data or evidence do you think they could bring forth to change chloe’s mind?   if you answered none, you are in sync with my thoughts.  you have all heard themes similar to this:  “love is blind despite the world’s attempt to give it eyes.” ― matshona dhliwayo emotional biases are formed by experiences or ideas derived from each of the four categories of knowing and believing that i briefly discussed earlier. we can derive an emotional bias from a strong attachment to anything and it does not matter whether we have facts, data, and evidence.  an emotional bias comes from the heart as opposed to a cognitive bias which comes from the brain.  of course, in practice both sets of biases tend to overlap and support each other. someone with a strong cognitive bias can become very emotional about their beliefs and someone with a strong emotional bias may tend to only accept facts which support their bias.  in either case, we face the same difficulties with trying to get the individual to seek the truth.  notice, i did not say see the truth.  perhaps, some or more of what they already believe is the truth or at least part of the truth. for instance, to return to chloe and michael.  michael may indeed be all the things that chloe’s parents believe about him but he may also be all the things that chloe loves about him.  he may often be kind, thoughtful, generous and fun loving.  the truth is seldom single faceted and is much more analogous to a multi-faceted diamond.  think of truth as having hundreds of shimmering glittering surfaces.  you turn it one way and you see some facets.  you turn it another way and you see other facets.  some facets shine more than others.  some are larger and more apparent than others.  you cannot see the truth without seeing all of the facets.  that is what makes truth seeking so challenging.  the number of facets in a diamond may be difficult to count but the number of facets in the truth may be close to infinite.  furthermore, unlike a diamond, the truth keeps changing.  the truth you may be seeking now will be a great deal different then the truth you might find ten or twenty years from now. in conclusion:  some final thoughts to share: “a desire to know the truth does not endow one with the ability to understand or accept the truth.”  — joseph crosby mecham “walk with those seeking truth… run from those who think they have found it.” — deepak chopra this has been a very long blog. thank you for reading it.  i hope it has helped you to think about ways to seek and search for the truth.  i was more certain when i started this blog that i could help describe a concrete definitive path to the truth.  writing this blog has made me realize how difficult the search is and the near impossibility of ever finding an absolute truth about anything much less a concrete path to the truth. i have found one truth for now though that i can accept and that is that we must try our best to keep an open mind and an open heart in our search for the truth.  perhaps i will change my mind about this in ten or twenty years.🙂 time for questions: when was the last time you searched for the truth?  did you find it?  if so, what helped you to find the truth?  what roadblocks did you have to overcome?  what do you think would help more people to find the truth? life is just beginning. “we awaken by asking the right questions. we awaken when we see knowledge being spread that goes against our own personal experiences. we awaken when we see popular opinion being wrong but accepted as being right, and what is right being pushed as being wrong. we awaken by seeking answers in corners that are not popular.  and we awaken by turning on the light inside when everything outside feels dark.” — suzy kassem, rise up and salute the sun: the writings of suzy kassem “i may be wrong in regard to any or all of them; but holding it a sound maxim, that it is better to be only sometimes right, than at all times wrong, so soon as i discover my opinions to be erroneous, i shall be ready to renounce them.” — abraham lincoln, speeches and writings,

leave a comment by johnpersico in uncategorized tags: data, evidence, facts, lies, proof, science, testimony, truth in part 3, i tried to explain the second pillar of truth finding and look at what data is and what it is not.  we also looked at the difficulties with collecting objective and valid data. in part 4, i want to discuss the role of the third pillar (evidence) in truth finding.  let us start with a standard definition of evidence from dictionary.com. that which tends to prove or disprove something; ground for belief; proof. something that makes plain or clear; an indication or sign: his flushed look was visible evidence of his fever. data presented to a court or jury in proof of the facts in issue and which may include the testimony of witnesses, records, documents, or objects. if your look at the third definition, you might be excused for finding it somewhat circular.  evidence is data in support of facts?  i don’t think i have a clue what this means.  the first definition can be easily mistaken for what we called data in part 2 and possibly even hard to distinguish from a fact.  the second definition is so subjective that i am amazed they even listed it.  so what is evidence then?  here is my definition. evidence is relevant facts and data.  there are lots of facts and data out there but not all are relevant to our proposition, case, theory, hypothesis or concepts.  evidence must have relevance to the issue we are studying.  what do i mean by relevance?  let me give you an example. i am working to prepare for a chess match with my neighbor.  i happen to note in the paper the fact that tomorrow will be a quarter moon.   does this fact have any relevance to my playing chess?  i don’t think so.  thus, i don’t really care that there will be a quarter moon.  as far as my limited cognition or perception, i can see no relevance between the fact of a quarter moon and my preparing for my chess match.  i could be wrong. we can always mis-perceive the relevance of some information to an issue. this is often done in science and in police work.  we don’t see the connection between two issues and we misjudge the outcomes.  this provides one good reason for diversity and numbers in problem solving.  you have less chance of being blindsided if you have a variety of opinions rather than just your own. let us look at another example where the issue of relevance is more salient.  i am planning to go on a trip to england in 2017.  i want to plan my trip for the best possible time of the year.  i hypothesize that two facts or data points are very important to my planning.  the first is the temperatures at various times of the year in england.  the second is the rain fall.  i found the ranges for this data on a weather site and used the information to plan my trip.  of course, some of the decisions anyone makes will depend on their own weather preferences.  i wanted to minimize rainfall and also keep the temperature in a moderate range.  what i call sweater weather.  thus, both these set of factors were relevant and important to my planning.  i would call them evidence to support the time of year that i decided to go. on the other hand, if you like rain, you might have picked a different time of the year than i did.  there were other mitigating factors which played a role in my decision making.  these factors included costs for lodging during the year and transportation costs during the year.  in general, off season times have better rates but are somewhat the worse for weather.  another factor was the value of the pound to the dollar.  i considered the value of the dollar to the pound post brexit but concluded that i did not have enough information to effectively evaluate the impact of this data on my decision.  i am assuming that with the volatility involved in the situation, the value of the dollar might go either way against the pound.  my best guess is that i will benefit if i go as soon as possible.  the news has recently noted that after brexit the value of the pound fell 14 percent against the dollar.  this would mean i could get a significant cost advantage if i purchase anything in england.  i am hoping this situation will continue until after my trip but there are too many variables at play here for me to use this information.  i can only hope. a more common example of relevance can be found by looking at police work.  we are all familiar these days with what is called forensic science.  i am sure most of you reading this have watched some police show.  as soon as a crime is discovered, the crime scene unit (csi) is brought in to collect evidence.  keep in mind that everything at a crime scene is not evidence.  only what may have a possible relationship to the crime.  this can be a real problem.  the csi unit is going to be limited by their assumptions concerning what might be relevant.  for instance, i doubt any crime scene investigator will care whether or not the light bulbs are “bright” or “soft white” in the kitchen or bathroom.  it is impossible to collect all the “evidence” of stuff that might be related to the crime.  thus, relying on experience and training, the police investigators do their best to collect facts and data that appear to be relevant to the crime.  the relevant data and facts are not just interesting, they are evidence.  the more they relate to the crime, the stronger the evidence will be. an eyewitness can provide evidence via his/her testimony as to the events of a crime.  the relevance of any eyewitness is high but the reliability of an eyewitness can be much lower.  second hand testimony is not as relevant as first hand testimony and is thus weaker evidence.  testimony that might be compromised by some factors such as police record, bias, discrimination, physical disabilities might be relevant but will be weaker evidence because the validity of the evidence is suspect.  that is why lab procedures and chain of custody is so important to police work.  they may have the most relevant evidence imaginable but if the validity of the evidence can be comprimised because of sloppy police work, the evidence will be useless. the same is true of scientific evidence.  it must be valid and reliable.  one example of how a fact was exposed as a lie was in the work on so called “cold fusion.”  here is an excerpt from a paper on the dubious development of cold fusion in a laboratory: “one year after the press conference that had garnered pons and fleischmann so much attention, the scientific process had finally been able to sort through the evidence regarding cold fusion.  few groups had found support for the hypothesis, and those few had inconsistent results and could not reliably reproduce their findings.  this lack of replicable evidence was a major blow for cold fusion. the laws of nature don’t play favorites.  if cold fusion works in one laboratory under a certain set of conditions, we’d expect it to work in other laboratories at other times under the same conditions. hence, lack of reproducibility is a serious problem for any scientific finding, casting doubt on the validity of the original result and suggesting that there’s been a misinterpretation of what’s going on.”  — http://undsci.berkeley.edu/lessons/pdfs/cold_fusion.pdf it is seldom that findings of evidence in police work or business are subjected to as much scrutiny as occurred in the so called development of cold fusion.  perhaps, since this was a finding of great scientific importance, it was held to a more rigorous standard than would occur in many other scientific studies.  i am thinking in particular of findings in the health field, nutrition field and drug field.  in each of these fields we often have much less rigor before results are posted or accepted.   business is even worse with advertisers spouting outright lies and fabrications.  little known phenomenon are routinely heralded as being highly reliable evidence of the benefit of some product or service that someone wants to sell you.   all kinds of spurious facts and data are then marshaled as evidence to support the phony claims by madison avenue advertisers. next week in part 5, the final part of this series on truth, we will look at how one can put the three pillars of facts, data and evidence together to find the truth.     time for questions: can you tell me how you know a true fact from a false fact?  how do you decide what to believe?  how much credibility do you put in the news that you hear?  how do you choose the news that you want to hear?  how do you decide who is telling the truth? life is just beginning. “i am a firm believer in the people. if given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. the great point is to bring them the real facts.”  —  abraham lincoln share this:twitterfacebooklinkedinemailpinterestpocketprinttumblrgoogleredditlike this:like loading... facts, data, evidence and the search for truth – part 3 – what is data? 19 nov 2016 leave a comment by johnpersico in uncategorized tags: data, evidence, facts, information, liars, lies, statistician, statistics, truth, veracity. science. in part 1, i discussed the difficulty with finding the truth.  it is a quest complicated by the amount of information that we are inundated with on a daily basis.  it is further complicated in that much of the information we find is either erroneous or outright lies.  the average person has never studied information theory in school and is ill equipped to sort through the morass of data, evidence and facts that are presented to them.  in part 2, i tried to break down the concept of what a fact is to help people better understand its role in truth finding.  in part 3, i will try to break down the second pillar of truth finding and look at what data is and is not and the difficulties with collecting objective and valid data. what is data? i hope to dispel some of the confusion over the concept of data and make it easier for people to see the pros and cons of using data.  we have too many people in business, religion, government and the military who do not understand what data is and who misuse it by quoting statistics and numerical information incorrectly.  one negative result is to confuse people over what is true and what is not true.  an even more insidious result of the misuse of data is incorrect decision making.  during the vietnam war, the inflated enemy kills and deflated enemy troop levels led to a total lack of ability to plan strategically for the war.  thousands of people were killed on both sides by the negligent and criminal misuse of data and statistics on the part of the military and defense department. “former cia analyst sam adams told a federal jury here monday that army gen. william c. westmoreland caused a “massive falsification” of intelligence during the vietnam war by imposing a ceiling upon the numbers of enemy troops.”  — westmoreland blamed for faulty troop reports : witness for cbs testifies general’s policy caused ‘massive falsification’ — january 15, 1985, rudy abramson  when i started working with process management international in 1986 after completing my doctorate degree at the university of minnesota, i met the famous quality improvement expert and renowned statistician, dr. w. e. deming.  over the next seven years, he had the most profound influence on my life in terms of helping me to understand process improvement, statistics, quality and the use of data to improve everything from widgets to health care.  under the influence of dr. deming, our company adopted his motto “in god we trust, all others bring data.”  dr. deming also said “without data, you’re just another person with an opinion.” so what is data?  merriam webster dictionary defines data as:  “facts or information used usually to calculate, analyze, or plan something.”  this definition is very misleading and inaccurate. in the first place, data is not necessarily a fact.  data is unorganized bits of numbers and calculations which by themselves do not add up to a fact.  for instance, here is some data:  3, 4, 7, 15 and 12.  individually, these numbers do not mean a thing.  as an example, take the english alphabet, which is composed of 26 letters.  each letter by itself means little or nothing.  data by itself usually has no meaning or significance.  it must be organized before it will have any meaning or usefulness. secondly, data is not information.  a letter by itself does not provide information of anything nor does a single display of numbers or statistics provide any information.  you must put them together to mean something.  when they are put together in some form of a relationship, they can then be called information.  for example, 2+2= 4 constitutes bits of data put into an equation that gives me the sum of the individual bits of data.  data aggregated in some type of meaningful form becomes information. “look beyond the numbers you see to what they mean and understand how the numbers presented may not fully capture the important details you need to consider.” — statistics abuse and me by jay mathews: if we understand what data is, you have now entered the deep forest.  however, we have a long way to go before we can get out of the forest.  there are numerous obstacles along the way.  referring again to the concepts of validity and reliability, we must ask ourselves the same questions we asked about our facts. is our data reliable and valid?  how did we collect the data?  what method did we use to collect the data?  are we taking a few samples each day for several weeks or are we taking a few samples for only a few days?  are we using a random sample or a stratified random sample?  different methods of collecting data will lead to different results.  and we are not even talking about interpreting the data yet.  for instance, when i worked at w.t. grants cutting shades back in the late 60’s, i was told to make sure i took my measurements with a metal tape measure and not a cloth or plastic measure.  the reason given was that it was easier to stretch a cloth tape measure and get a false result.  this would lead to cutting a shade that was too large and would not fit. the process of measuring something must also match the purpose or objective.  dr. deming frequently used the example of cleaning a table to discuss measurement problems.  dr. deming emphasized the need to know “why” something was needed to be done.  if a person is asked to clean a table, how can the person understand the level of cleanliness required without first understanding why they are performing the job in the first place?  if the table is to be used as a workbench, it would require a different level of cleanliness then if it were to be used as a lunch table.  even more different if it was to be used as an operating room table.  understanding why we are doing something is critical to determining the appropriate measurement process.   the measurement process will influence the data we obtain. here are several other problems that are commonly encountered when collecting data: irrelevant or duplicate data collected pertinent data omitted different measures of the same object by those collecting the data erroneous collected too little data acquired insufficient time to collect the data properly poor methods of storing or archiving data lack of a systematic method for collecting data if we have addressed all of the above problems, we are still not out of the forest, in fact, we are probably only about one half way through the forest.  we now face the most daunting and difficult task of all.  we must attempt to interpret the data and catalog the data without bias.  a number of movies have been made which illustrate the difficulty of presenting data or information without bias.  they are all based on what has been labeled as the rashomon effect.  “this is a term used to describe the circumstance when the same event is given contradictory interpretations by different individuals involved. the term derives from akira kurosawa‘s 1950 film rashomon, in which a murder involving four individuals (suspects, witnesses, and surviving victims) is described in four mutually contradictory ways. more broadly, the term addresses the motivations, mechanism, and occurrences of the reporting on the circumstance, and so addresses contested interpretations of events, the existence of disagreements regarding the evidence of events, and the subjects of subjectivity versus objectivity in human perception, memory, and reporting.” — wikipedia it is inevitable that any observations we make in life are biased by the prior experiences we have.  our senses are not infallible measures of sight, smell, taste, hearing and touch.  each of our senses is infused with the data that they have already been exposed to.  the prior data that each of us has already experienced will influence our future perceptions.  similarly, our brains are also biased by prior ideas and experiences.  we cannot get away from bias.  sadly, extreme bias leads to a lack of credibility and objectivity.  (we will discuss the concepts of objectivity and credibility in more depth when we discuss truth in part 5 of this article.) i noted earlier that there is no solution or at least i have not found one to our central problem in terms of searching for the truth.  it is no easy matter to find data, organize data and interpret data in such a way that we eliminate bias and insure objectivity.  the scientific method is one system for collecting and organizing data to test a theory or hypothesis that is invaluable.  the method can be summarized as follows: make an observation propose a theory or hypothesis design and perform experiments to test the hypothesis collect data from the experiments determine if the data, facts and evidence support the hypothesis there are millions of scientific experiments that have been conducted since the founding of the scientific method.  the results of these experiments have helped us to develop civilization and many of the modern conveniences we now have.  science has added to our health, safety and longevity in so many ways that are beyond dispute.  without science, we would still be living in caves, dying in our twenties and eating cold meat.  the scientific method is the single most important method for identifying the truth that has ever been developed. unfortunately, the scientific method is not infallible.  it is subject to bias and disagreement over data and interpretations.  even more problematic is that the scientific method is not a strong method when it comes to testing subjective theories that cannot be verified by fact.  for instance, “is the mona lisa beautiful?”   as stated, this is a subjective question that each individual will hold a different opinion on.  however, if i asked:  “is the mona lisa the most beautiful painting in the world?”  i could attempt to answer that question with a bit more objectivity.  i could conduct a survey to see what percentage of people think it is the most beautiful.  subjective studies are not as strong as objective studies since they usually lead to results that follow a bell shaped curve.  thus, if we conducted the above survey, we would probably find that a certain percentage of people thought it was the most beautiful painting and a certain percentage did not.  as in politics, opinions of beauty would be all over the place.  this is why politics is so much more difficult to “fact check” than issues like the atomic mass of hydrogen.  politics is a very subjective field that resists efforts to test and fact check.  some examples that would be difficult to test with the scientific method would include: who will make the best president or leader? what is the best way to deal with isis in the mideast? should we support the un more strongly in its peace keeping role? what is the best way to create jobs and stimulate the economy? each of the above questions could be stated as a theory, but each would be difficult if not impossible to prove due to the difficulty of collecting objective data.  by objective, i mean data that is not biased.  in fact, it would be difficult to even collect accurate data to prove any of the above questions. where does the above discussion leave us?  i fear the outcome of this discussion will not be satisfactory to anyone looking for some full proof means to find, catalog and interpret data that is 100 percent accurate, reliable, valid and objective.  the closest we will come to such a process is the scientific method.   alas, even this method is not full proof and as we all know, science is subject to a great deal of bias and distortion, at least in areas where data is more subjective than objective.  however, even in areas such as global warming where one would think the data could be found that is objective and reliable, we still find a great number of people who argue that global warming does not exist.  this raises the final and most difficult problem to solve before we are out of the forest and that is the problem of denial and delusion.  i will defer this discussion to part 5. finally, if i have left you with some understanding of the difficulty with interpreting data, i will have felt successful.  the first step to knowledge is awareness of our cognitive limitations.  we also need to be more skeptical when people present us with facts and data.  my father used to say “believe nothing of what you hear and half of what you see.”  i still consider this good advice.  there are too many fools and charlatans out there trying to convince us of things for a multitude of reasons that will benefit them and not us.  just as we would not walk down a dark alley in an unknown city by ourselves, we need to exercise caution when presented with data and facts.  the more we understand the limits of data and facts, the more prepared we will be to make decisions based on data and facts that have a higher degree of validity and reliability.  if the data, facts and evidence that you base your knowledge on are not accurate than everything you think you know will be at best a half truth and at worst a total lie. next week in part 4, we will look at the concept of evidence and the how this concept informs our search for the truth.  time for questions: do you understand what data is?  do you know what a bell shaped curve is?  do you trust the data you see in the news? do you trust what your local political leaders tell you?  how accurate do you think the news is when reporting information?  what do you think biases your own interpretations of data and events?  how do you try to be more objective when studying a problem? life is just beginning. “any time scientists disagree, it’s because we have insufficient data.  then we can agree on what kind of data to get; we get the data; and the data solves the problem. either i’m right, or you’re right, or we’re both wrong. and we move on.  that kind of conflict resolution does not exist in politics or religion.” — neil degrasse tyson share

first amendment, free speech, freedom, hate speech, racism, sex, truth, violence i was walking down the street the other day and i saw three white guys beating the heck out of a black guy.  the black guy was down on the ground and the three white guys were taking turns pummeling him.  i rushed up and yelled “stop, what the heck do you guys think you are doing.”  one of the white guys answered “what does it look like, we are beating the shit out of a black guy.”  “what did he do”, i asked.   “what do you mean what did he do?  “he was being black” came back the reply. “are you guy’s crazy?  you can’t just beat someone up for being black.”   i retorted. the three guys huddled for a minute and finally one of the three (a guy with bright red hair and lots of tattoos) came out of the huddle and took me by the shoulder.  “look he said, you look like a fairly intelligent guy.”  two of my friends over there never went to college.  i went for a few years so they nominated me to talk to you. “ “what is there to talk about?  you have no right no beat up on this poor man”, i answered. “aahh, that is where you are wrong” said tattoo guy.  “we have every right.  in fact, we have a constitutional right to beat him up.” “are you serious or trying to kid me, i ask.” “no i am not kidding” said tattoo guy, “i am very serious. it is our constitutional right.” “ok,” i say, “i will bite, what is the right you think you have?” “well” says tattoo guy, “have you ever heard of ‘freedom of expression.’  the constitution says every american citizen has freedom of expression.  thus, we are just expressing our free rights as american citizens to beat up on people we don’t like.” “i am not sure that is what the founding fathers meant by freedom of expression”, i answer. “well, frankly we don’t give a fuck what you think.  furthermore, if you keep interfering we might just sue you for violating our constitutional rights.” “hold on now.  i thought we were having a friendly conversation here.  now you are threatening to sue me.  on what grounds?” i ask. i could see tattoo guy thinking about my question for a while and then he answered “well, since you are being so polite about it, we won’t sue you, at least not for now.” “wow, thanks” said i. “look, said tattoo guy, we voted for donald trump and he respects our freedom of expression rights.  we are sick and tired of the pc shit you pussies and commies have been spreading in this country for years.  we are tired of watching what we say and do because we might be called rednecks or bigots or even racists.  it’s a new day for america.  we are going to make our country great again.” “with donald trump as president, i can call anyone i want a nigger, kike, frog, wop, dago, spook, wetback, cunt, fag, pussy, greaser, jap, slope.  it’s my freedom of expression” says tattoo guy. “so basically you were sick and tired of having your freedom of expression curtailed by anti-hate laws and people who are sick of being insulted because of their color or sex” i asked? “you are more or less on the right track” says tattoo guy.  “used to be you could tell some nigger jokes, put up pinups of nude girls, even grab a few pussies once in a while and no one bothered you.  then, all this pc stuff started and before you knew it, you had to watch what you said and did.  a white person’s freedom of expression went down the drain.  well, no more pc now.  so can we please get back to beating the shit out of this nigger?” “what about this man’s freedom of expression” i ask.  “don’t you think he also has some rights?” “sure” says tattoo guy, “he can say whatever he thinks.  we don’t care.  just as long as he doesn’t call us rednecks or bigots or racists.” “that sounds like a double standard” i answer. “i don’t think so.  you intellectuals think too much.  you need to do more and think less” says tattoo guy. “well, what if i told you that i had a glock model 40 10mm in my pocket and that if you hit this man one more time, i will take it and blow your fucking brains out.  what would you think of that” i replied indignantly. “that changes the entire nature of our issue here” says tattoo guy.  “we respect your second amendment rights to own and bear arms and use them in defense of your country and family.  may i ask if this black guy is part of your family?” “haven’t you ever heard of john donne” i asks?  “donne says”: no man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as any manner of thy friends or of thine own were; any man’s death diminishes me, because i am involved in mankind. and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee. “so you are sort of saying that this black guy here is part of your extended family?” asks tattoo guy. “exactly,” i reply. “well, that’s a horse of a different color then.  if you are related to us because you are white and we are white and he is related to you, even if he is black, then he is also related to us, which means he is part of our family too.  that’s great, now we have a new brother.  how about if we all go get a beer together?” says tattoo guy. “sounds like a better idea than beating each other up or my blowing your brains out.  do you know any good brew pubs?  first round on me” i reply. time for questions:  do you think all such stories as mine have a “happy” ending?  what rights do people have not to be insulted or harassed because of their color or sex?  do you think some rights might supersede other rights?  why or why not? life is just beginning. freedom of speech does not include the right: to incite actions that would harm others (e.g.,

country great again.” “we were coming out of a great economic crisis.  jobs were scarce and money was very tight.  he said he would get rid of all the people who were taking our jobs.  he would eliminate the ruling class and get the crooks out of politics.  jobs for germans is what he said.  i thought he would make our country great again so i voted for him.” if i only knew.    time for

by johnpersico in uncategorized tags: data, evidence, facts, facts. data. evidence, honesty, liars, lies, problem solving., statistics, truth in part 1, i discussed the difficulty with finding the truth.  it is a quest complicated by the amount of information that we are inundated with on a daily basis.  it is further complicated in that much of the information we find is either erroneous or outright lies.  the average person has never studied information theory in school and is ill equipped to sort through the morass of data, evidence and facts that are presented to them.  i admitted in part 1 that i do not have the entire solution to this problem.  namely, how do we find the truth?  in part 2, 3 and 4, i want to describe the three elements of truth seeking:  facts, data and evidence and then in the final part 5 show how they relate to the problem of finding the truth.  we will start by looking at what a fact is. facts: the common definition of a fact is something that can be verified.  but the concept of verification is a very difficult idea to pin down.  what do we mean by verify?  do we mean that we can find other people who agree with the “fact?”  for instance, most people today would agree that the world is round or at least elliptical.  however, there was a long period in history, when common knowledge held that the world was flat.  thus, common knowledge is not always a good means of verifying a fact.  nevertheless, we often rely on common knowledge as a means of fact verification.  most so called facts are simply things that have become commonly agreed on.  for instance, that columbus discovered america in 1492.  we are taught this in history but we are not taught that many people would not agree with this fact.  common knowledge is a very dangerous form of verification. it is very easy to accept a fact as truth if we forget or ignore the limitations of such verification.  in many court trials, jurors have considered it as a fact if they have verification by an eyewitness to the sequence of events or people who were present at a particular crime.  history has shown however, that eye witnesses are very unreliable (see how reliable is eyewitness testimony?).  today we rely more and more on video cameras for verification of certain events.  even their use has not proven to be the panacea that many have hoped for. another means of fact verification is measurement.  what if we can measure the fact?  surely, the ability to measure something should be conclusive proof that a fact is accurate or true.  unfortunately, this is not the case.  for instance, it is now stated as a fact that mt. everest is 29,029′ in elevation (wiki).  we can accept this measurement as a fact but there are two problems with doing so.  first, the height of every mountain in the world is constantly changing.  weather, erosion and other forces of nature will over time lower some mountains and raise other mountains.  second, any measurement system is dependent on the accuracy and reliability of the measurement instrument and the process used in the measuring of the particular variable.  a sloppy process of measurement can lead to false or unreliable results.  the oj trial was a good example of where the jurors refused to believe the facts obtained from the la crime labs. “the prosecution had expert witnesses that testified that the evidence was often mishandled. photos were taken of critical evidence without scales in them to aid in measurement taking; items were photographed without being labeled and logged, making it difficult, if not impossible, to link the photos to any specific area of the scene. separate pieces of evidence were bagged together instead of separately causing cross-contamination; and wet items were packaged before allowing them to dry, causing critical changes in evidence.”  http://www.crimemuseum.org/crime-library/forensic-investigation-of-the-oj-simpson-trial/ take your common bathroom scale.  if you weigh yourself regularly you will notice that you can get different readings on successive times of getting on the scale.  i am not talking about different days but even taking these readings at the same exact time.  get on your scale, get off again and then get right on again and you will very likely get slightly different readings.  our ability to measure things has become more and more accurate.  nevertheless, every measurement system is either subject to errors of validity or reliability. a validity error is when we are not measuring the right thing.  iq tests have been repeatedly criticized for not really measuring the intelligence of a human being or for being biased by many cultural factors.  thus opponents of iq tests argue that they are not valid measures of intelligence.  a reliability error is when our measures are not consistent.   the scale example given above illustrates the problem with reliability.  most people use a scale to weight themselves and most scales have problems with reliability.  however, if you tried to equate your weight with your health, you would be assuming that the scale could also measure health and this would be a problem with validity.  scales cannot measure health although health might be correlated to some degree with appropriate height and weight. a correlation is a measure of how much things vary with each other.  thus, the amount of grass growth is generally highly correlated with rainfall.  the more rain we get, the more the grass grows.  the amount of money one makes is somewhat but not highly correlated with iq.  earnings tend to be more highly correlated with amount of education but this is only true up to a point.  the concept of correlation is a very important concept in measurement.  we are often fooled by thinking that things are correlated when they are not.  this can lead to poor decision making.  here are some examples of positive correlations: the more time you spend running on a treadmill, the more calories you will burn. taller people have larger shoe sizes and shorter people have smaller shoe sizes. the more hours you spend in direct sunlight, the more severe your sunburn. as the temperature goes up, ice cream sales also go up. the more gasoline you put in your car, the farther it can go. as a child grows, so does his clothing size. examples.yourdictionary.com/positive-correlation-examples.html#jfuqhtbxa6whrays.99 when a 100 percent or 1-1 correlation does not exist, you can always find exceptions to any rule or fact.  a false correlation is created when people assume two things to be true and related when they are not.  for instance, trumps claim that a good businessperson will make a good president has no basis in fact or historical evidence.  false correlations lead to many problems including delusions, myths, fanatical beliefs and not just poor but disastrous decision making.  following, i will provide some examples of false correlation: the more one exercises, the more weight one will lose reading will make a person more intelligent paying people more will increase productivity a happy worker is a productive worker the longer one is married, the happier they are lowering taxes will create jobs and improve the economy understanding the concept of correlation is critical to measurement and hence critical to fact finding.  if we assume that measuring anything is the best way to verify a fact, we must be critical and open minded about the limitations of the measurement system that we decide to use. before we move on to looking at the concept of data, we will look at two more problems with the concept of facts.  these are distortion and bias.  distortion relates to twisting the meaning of something.  this can happen by taking something that someone has said out of context.  for instance, i might be talking at a conference and say something in sarcasm such as “yeah, i will definitely vote for trump.”  my words could be repeated verbatim and it would sound like i was endorsing trump.  it is difficult to detect sarcasm.  to most people reading or hearing my words second hand, it will sound like i am a strong trump supporter.  slick politicians and advertisers will often distort a fact to make it sound like the fact is supporting their position. bias is another major problem with fact checking or fact verification.  sites like politifact have lulled people into thinking that facts can be checked with great accuracy.  not only is this assertion mostly false but there is another problem.  bias will inevitably creep into the process of fact checking when some facts are checked and others are not.  another example will illustrate this problem.  let us take a debate between hillary and trump as our example.  during the course of a 90 minute debate there might be as many as 200 assertions that could be fact checked.  politifact will not check all of them.  which ones will they check?  the facts that might make hillary look like a liar or the facts that might make trump look like a liar?  by judiciously choosing the facts that i decide to check, i can bias the results for either trump or hillary.  just having the most facts on one’s side does not insure that one also has truth on their side. next week in part three, we will look at data and the how this concept informs our search for the truth.  time for questions: can you tell me how you know a true fact from a false fact?  how do you decide what to believe?  how much credibility do you put in the news that you hear?  how do you choose the news that you want to hear?  how do you decide who is telling the truth? life is just beginning. “i am a firm believer in the people. if given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. the great point is to bring them the real facts.”  —  abraham lincoln share this:twitterfacebooklinkedinemailpinterestpocketprinttumblrgoogleredditlike

hillary, jerk, president, stupidity, trump, voting donald trump is a greedy rich racist sexist bigoted homophobic coward and boor. however, donald trump is not america.  donald trump is a reflection of the worst elements of humanity rolled into one human being.  i know many people who have elements of donald trump in their personalities.  i know racists. i know sexists. i know greedy rich and greedy poor people.  i know bigots and i know people who are homophobic.  i know many cowards who will not bother to stand up for their ideas or the rights of other people.  donald trump is unique in that he manages to roll all of the negative characteristics of humanity into one persona. “the great secret of true success, of true happiness, is this: the man or woman who asks for no return, the perfectly unselfish person, is the most successful.” — swami vivekananda donald trump is not america.  donald trump is a creation of a media empire that is out of control.  a media that trends sensationalism, exploitation, fear and paranoia to feed a 24/7 system of so called news reports.  a system of glitz, glamour, ads, sound bites, commercials, sex appeal and worthless trivia that has little or no educational or informational value.  it is a system that neither informs nor educates.  it is a system that thrives on the likes of donald trump.  it is a system that thrives on the exotic, the unusual, the strange, the bizarre, the kinky, the outlandish and the far out.  donald trump is all of these things but he is not america. “if people in the media cannot decide whether they are in the business of reporting news or manufacturing propaganda, it is all the more important that the public understand that difference, and choose their news sources accordingly.” — thomas sowell donald trump is not even a real republican.  the party he claims as his own is one he and his small band (less than 9 percent of the total registered voters in the usa)* has managed to co-opt.  the republicans that i have called friends over the years want nothing to do with him.  they are as appalled as the democrats are at donald trumps rise to popularity in the media polls.  americans however should not be surprised at this.  it is not the first time that a fraud, demagogue and charlatan has captured the media stage.  looking back through us history, we can find similarities between donald trump and the likes of aaron burr, the know nothing party, huey long, the silver shirts, and of course joseph mc mccarthy.   none of my republican friends would avow affiliation with any of these characters.   they are not america and neither is donald trump. “find out for yourself what is truth, what is real. discover that there are virtuous things and there are non-virtuous things. once you have discovered for yourself give up the bad and embrace the good.”   — the buddha every country in the world has its right and left-wing extremists.  it has been this way for hundreds of years.  fortunately, in the usa, our political system usually kicks out the extremists and the middle ground or centrists have always trumped the left and right-wing fanatics.  due to our political system, we have escaped such maniacs as general franco, benito mussolini, joseph stalin and adolf hitler.  there are many drawbacks to our political system and chaos often seems to be a major characteristic of it.  there are many people who would discard such a system in favor of stability and security.  these people would buy such a political system at the cost of freedom and liberty.  in many nations throughout the world, citizens select benevolent dictators rather than trying to deal with the vagaries and uncertainties that are often characteristic of a us style democracy. donald trump would have americans believe that he will bring us stability and prosperity, but at what cost?  donald trump would build a huge wall to keep out immigrants.  donald trump would build internment camps for american muslims.  donald trump would outlaw gay marriage.  donald trump would create a police state to keep in check unruly minorities.  donald trump would insure that a woman’s place was back in the kitchen. “in all things i have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the lord jesus, how he himself said, ‘it is more blessed to give than to receive.” — acts 20:23 donald trump promises to make all americans rich.  that is how he is buying the support of a small minority of foolish americans.   donald trump says “i am rich.  i know how to run things. i can make you rich too.  look at how much money i have.”  and people believe him:  “donald trump will make america great again means donald trump will make us all rich like he is.”  well, he will promise to make every american rich.  that is the benefit he is promising for anyone is willing to vote for him.  all it will cost america is the cost of one giant prison system. donald trump says that he will create the largest wall that the world has ever seen, but it won’t keep out immigrants.  it will only keep out ideas and innovation.  donald trump supporters include the misguided and fearful who believe that if we only had less poor people, less immigrants, less refugees, less minorities, less disabled people and less women in power that “america would be great again.”  this is a delusion held by those who dream of a bygone era when “father knew best, blacks knew their place and women stayed in the kitchen.”  the myth of “the good old days” is almost impossible to kill in a population fed on media mediocrity and where real history is either not taught or understood.  donald trump will not bring back the “good old days” because the good old days where not really that good.  donald trump will not “make america white again.” a man asked muhammad what was the mark whereby he might know the reality of his faith. muhammad said, “if thou derive pleasure from the good which thou hast performed and thou be grieved for the evil which thou hast committed, thou art a true believer.” the man said. “in what doth a fault really consist?” muhammad said, “when action pricketh thy conscience, forsake it.” — sayings of the prophet what all of trump’s bombastic speeches fail to note is that america is still great.  unfortunately, the things that make america great are hidden behind the media pronouncements of donald trump and his ill-advised followers. the ceaseless stream of bad news, crime, bizarre and weird news that titillates so many also deprives us of being a well-informed populace.   in addition, our outlandish media system simply serves to hide the many great values that the usa stands for. most americans and by this term i will include north america, central america and south america, i.e., us citizens, mexican citizens, canadian citizens and citizens from central and south america are decent law abiding compassionate and loving people.  the majority of the people i know or have met in canada, the usa, mexico, central and south america will help their fellow human beings.  they are good samaritans who will give some of what they have to provide for others in need.  they are not greedy or bigots or racists or sexists.  they are people like you and me who care for their neighbors, their country and their environment.  they are not donald trump supporters. “before someone will get the guts to monitor your life, he must get the keyboard of humility. to be a humble person, is a priority in leadership!” — israelmore ayivor the media and its fascinations with the likes of donald trump obscure the good that abounds in our nations.  the media obscures the daily good deeds and charities that are done in the name of love and compassion for others.  people like donald trump are raised on soap boxes and the ceaseless barrage of hateful comments from him and his followers hides the voice of the majority.  donald trump and his followers are the minority. “it’s easy to stand in the crowd but it takes courage to stand alone” — mahatma gandhi the message of hatred and intolerance that spews daily from trump is something that one could pity trump for if it were not so dangerous and belligerent.  it is hard to feel sorry for the bully that is kicking other people when they are down.  somewhere though, we know that such bullies are really cowards. their intolerance and lack of compassion towards others is driven by fear and insecurity.  no matter how big and bad the bully seems, they are the biggest cowards in the playground.  it is time to put donald trump and his followers in their places.  there is no room in america for bigots, sexists and racists who are intolerant of and lack compassion for others. we need to keep america great by letting the world see the true values that guide our nations and not the distorted hate filled messages that the media loves to display. “we shall listen, not lecture; learn, not threaten. we will enhance our safety by earning the respect of others and showing respect for them. in short, our foreign policy will rest on the traditional american values of restraint and empathy, not on military might.”   — theodore c. sorensen we are a few weeks short of election day.  the trump bandwagon has already exploded.  hillary has been asked what she will do to unite the country.  unfortunately, stupidity and greed and hate cannot be united with honesty, integrity and compassion.  we will be left with an underbelly of nearly 30 percent of american voters who have supported trump.  for whatever reason, (it really does not matter) we have millions of americans who will vote for a man who has no qualifications to be a humane being never mind president of the united states of america.  we will have to take the problem of his supporters very seriously or risk a rerun of this past election.  i think i am on firm ground when i say that four things must happen to change in america: we need to insure a pathway to success for all americans by creating a system of lifelong learning and job training. we need to change our political system and start by establishing term limits. i would support a system of a single term of six years for all representatives, senators and the president. we need to break up the monopoly that a few media giants have on the news. we need more integrity in journalism and not a system that is built on sensationalism and exploitation.  the news should inform people and help people make better decisions. we need a better system for establishing the credentials of candidates for office. the system of debates that we watched the past year did little or nothing to help people decide who was the most qualified candidate and what their concrete policies were. time for questions: will you help get out the word?  will you promise to speak out against trump and his lack of morality and values?  will you be sure to register to vote this election?  will you educate yourself on the candidates and vote on the basis of values and not fear?  will you help the world to see that donald trump is not america? life is just beginning. “americans need to educate themselves, from elementary school onward, about what their country has done abroad.  and they need to play a more active role in ensuring that what the united states does abroad is not merely in keeping with a foreign policy elite’s sense of realpolitik but also with the american public’s own sense of american values.”  — mohsin hamid 10- 22-2016.  breaking news!!!  trump unveils his 100 day plan in final policy speech. his 100 day plan: put women back into the kitchen by repealing roe versus wade. eliminate income inequality by giving more money and tax breaks to the rich hoping some of it will “trickle” down. build up a military that is already as large as the next ten largest militaries in the world combined. put more people in prison who are trying to get into this country for a better life. we already have the largest prison population in the world. sue his accusers for having the temerity to call him on his sexual predation and assaults. build a big big wall to employ millions of laid off american workers. finally, repeal obama care and replace it with something great. any more new fucking ideas moron? share
