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.
- Michael Levin, in "Feminism and Freedom"
