Filtering data is a quick path to error. To err is human because humans are emotional creatures who fall for over one hundred types of logical errors, and even in logical moments, humans filter data and do it with abandon. Tragic or comic misunderstandings are the rule with the mad, illogical data filterer, man.
It is clear that scientific data flat-out contradict the religious models of the world and of the nature of man. If data sets were not filtered by the religious people of the world, there would be no religions.
The same is true of political parties. If scientific and social scientific data were not filtered, we would have a partyless system of government, as envisaged by Thomas Jefferson, as by me with my fictional namian people, with everyone working for the common good, the greatest good for the greatest number.
