Scientific Politics

I don’t have beliefs; I have theories, which can always be reinforced, altered or disproven by new evidence.

I don’t have opinions; I have hypotheses, which are based on observations and require repeated testing to remain plausible.

I don’t have attitudes or biases or partisan perspectives; I have responses developed through exposure to previous stimuli, which may or may not be appropriate to circumstances (and may need to be altered in future situations).

My politics is scientific: skeptical, open to change, and perpetually undefined. If I already knew everything about everything, there’d be no reason to ever learn anything new.
