It seems that all humans have "blind spots" in their belief systems, ideas we cling to even when evidence to the contrary is right in front of us. (I have to smile at my own lapses as an engineer!) Within established institutions popular beliefs often keep us in even more of a trance.

This article from Dr. Bates' Better Eyesight Magazines gives several personal examples of this human frailty, of people clinging to beliefs that that are central to their identity. In one example a person with...
