chirosci-list---AGREEMENT and APPLICATION

Chiropractic Science/Research & Critical Inquiry Listserv

General Information

The goal of Chirosci-list is to provide a forum for Chiropractors to discuss and explore science and research pertaining to Chiropractic and Health Care.

An open, scientific mind is the most valuable asset a Chiropractor can have. It allows us to continually re- examine our current knowledge, or even our personal beliefs and systems that we have found valuable in the past, in order to continually move forward as more knowledge becomes available. By having an open mind and by utilizing the tools of critical thinking and scientific method, our knowledge becomes an ever-more accurate representation of the world. To quote from Carl Sagan: "The hard but just rule is that if the ideas don't work, you must throw them away. Don't waste any neurons on what doesn't work. Devote those neurons to new ideas that better explain the data. Valid criticism is doing you a favor....We have a method, and that method helps us to reach not absolute truth, only asymptotic approaches to the truth--never there, just closer and closer, always finding vast new oceans of undiscovered possibilities."
