Today’s Quote – the Gell-Mann Amnesia effect

That’s Michael Crichton, the physician turned novelist turned director, talking about his physicist friend Murray Gell-Mann, who discovered (and named) the quark. Crichton pretty much invented the techno-thriller genre of books and film, starting with The Andromeda Strain. Crichton is probably best known for his Jurassic Park novels, but take a look at his bibliography.

Michael Crichton had a huge influence on modern American culture. It’s too bad that he died young (age 66). Hey, that’s young in my book! If nothing else, he would still be fighting against the Global Warming acolytes.

    Beg pardon, but who reads through an entire article after encountering the first error?
    Which, of course, would negate the Gell-Mann Amnesia effect, imo.

    After consideration, I would factually, with citations, disprove every error. If any more time were wasted on such at all, that is.
    Wouldn’t one find one’s self more skeptical of other articles in the paper, not find them more accurate?

    Having never ever encountered, nor even considered, such a phenomenon, one finds one’s self agreeing with Pa Hermit – must be a democrat thing.
