Have you ever noticed how, in the absence of data, people are more likely to
invent and dogmatically follow unproven hypotheses that also happen to
simplify their life? For example, the false claim that babies with low white
matter myelination don't really experience pain, therefore circumcisions
don't require local anesthesia.
Are human beings rational people or people who rationalize?
