Dissecting a Bigot
A bigot is someone who:
- Overestimates the accuracy of his intuition.
- Makes snap generalisations.
A bigot will reason that Muslims/gays/blacks/Mexicans/women/… must be evil, and need to be eliminated, because:
- I don’t like them.
- Somebody told me about one of them doing a terrible thing.
These defects in logical reasoning mean you don’t find many bigoted mathematicians, logicians or computer programmers.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:70)
