About Bo Bennett, PhD

You can read my full bio at http://www.BoBennett.com.

Don't confuse motivation with veracity. While it is certainly reasonable to be weary of a claim made by one with ulterior motives, don't assume the claim must be false simply because the person making the claim will benefit from your acceptance of the claim. Arguing that a claim is false based solely on this assumption is known as the genetic fallacy.

Example: Of course Joe believes these stats about the likely extinction of the spotted owl—he volunteers at the National Wildlife Federation.
