Quoting Daniel Caldwell:
"But the real question is: can all of us put aside at least for the
time being those "preferences" and "biases" and try to rationally
discuss and understand Olcott's "alleged" experiences."

Bill Meredith
When I raised the issue of your bias, you dismissed it as a a "side comment"
a discussion of which would produce little. In fact you have indicated that
you will not discuss these side issues, but when you have time you will
address my hypothesis number 6. If you can easily dismiss your overt
display of bias that I pointed out in my first response to you , then you
must think you have already put it aside, otherwise how could you logically
and rationally proceed with the 4 step process? If you have not laid your
bias aside, then you are obligated as a scholar to reveal it at the
beginning of any discovery process -- especially one where you are
attempting to build a consensus opinion.
