DQ 1: Thomas Bayes who was an English Clergyman in the early 18th century who is known for the Bayes' Theorem. The theorem suggests that science is about conducting research in order to adjust our preexisting beliefs in light of the evidence collected. Conclusions drawn from an experiment are always in the context of what we believed about the world before the experiment.

Others suggest that it is better not to make any assumptions about prior beliefs. (Aron, Aron & Coups, 2006)

Where do you weigh in on this debate? Do you think we do research in order to validate something we already believe to be true or false?
