Yes, IF you subscribe to something like Karl Poppers philosophy of science
(critical rationalism),but maybe the proponents of the AAH prefer to stay
with philosopher Paul Feyerabend ("Against Method"-1975 and "Farewell to
Reason"-1987). ;-)

By education most have been misled;
So they believe,because they so were bred,
The priest continues what the nurse began,
And thus the child imposes on the man.
