"It will confuse two different and distinct ways of knowing. One is the scientific view -- evidence based on deduction -- with something that is belief-based, not evidence-based."
Well, at least one college president also finds induction and deduction to be confusing. Have lots of specific evidence pointing to a generalization? That's induction. Have a general theory and use that to figure out what will happen next? That's deduction. So what the heck is 'evidence based on deduction'?
I wonder what would happen if one did a methodologically sound survey of college presidents. What percentage would correctly answer how the scientific method (empiricism) works?
