    My guess is that they have gone out on a limb far enough that to even
    acknowledge the existence of such findings would compromise their
    message. I do not think they do this maliciously, however. It is just the
    human condition to closely look at data that supports our position and to
    selectively ignore the rest. It is a condition which is very very hard to
    overcome, for one fools himself so easily.
