Turning to Chiropractic theory, we find a concept quite analagous
to this. Perhaps Persinger should refer to this as "subluxations of
the mind"?  :)

   One usually thinks of creationism as a doctrine for religious
  fundamentalists, but from a methodological point of view, belief in
  the special creation of the human species is entailed by _any refusal
  to apply evolutionary theory to man_  .... This is most
  especially true of scientists like Richard Lewontin and Steven Jay
  Gould, who take a wholly naturalistic stance toward all living
  creatures apart from man (and are prepared to use the theory of
  evolution polemically in ideological debate), yet reject all but
  the most trivial comparisons of other living creatures to man.
