The myth of Evidence

“But what of evidence? Isn’t it objective, something fixed that limits the fickleness of reasoning? Not significantly. All evidence requires interpretation. Nothing ‘out there’ is evidence until it has been brought ‘in here,’ into my argument, to be used as I see fit. In politics, religion, family relations, and every other human endeavor, opposing sides use the same evidence to defend contradictory positions.” Daniel Taylor, The Myth of Certainty, 69
