Welcome to the Conversation Productive, substantive conversations are often uncomfortable. The mission of TESTING ORTHODOXY™ is to defend equality of opportunity, racial equality, economic freedom, freedom of expression, science, the rule of law and other democratic values. We strive to promote statistical literacy and data fluency. We hope to be a counterbalance to harmful ideologies that bind people together (often militantly) but also blind them to the destructive consequences of radicalism. We seek to show people the benefits of making decisions based on data.AND the dangers of making decisions based on emotional reasoning. Do you really want to know the truth? Or do you just want your biases confirmed?
