Have you ever wondered why some people seem so resistant to ideas? If you are a creationist, you might have wondered why some evolutionists seem so resistant to evidence against evolution. Or you might have noticed this in other fields, too. Well, it does seem amazing that the preponderance of evidence of evolution can be ignored, or discounted, so readily, so consistently, by some.
This is a phenomenon that has been observed and commented on down through time. Tolstoy wrote of this, and so did Nobelist Max Planck. Even evolutionist Gould wrote about this. He wrote of a researcher who was so blind to the truth, to the evidence, that not only did he ignore the evidence of his own experiments, his own data, but he also fudged the data and was not even aware that he had fudged it. Whether true or not, this was stated by an evolutionist, so some evolutionists must at least believe that such bias is possible.
