Evolution quotes #17

Anthony Hurford:

"a remote possibility exists with such low track density material that without knowing it unintentional bias to influence the results either to 1.8 or 2.4 [millions of years] may be creeping in, either because of outside pressure (more likely in my case) or because of acceptance of an hypothesis in our minds."

Roger Lewin (noted science journalist), Bones of Contention (New York, NY: A Touchstone Book published by Simon & Schuster Inc., 1987), p. 244 citing a letter, Gleadow to author, 8 Nov. 1976
