    Which is why scientists are often not optimal at dealing with explicit disinformation tactics.

    Over in the turf of exposing fraudulent psychics (i.e., James Randi, Skeptical Inquirer, etc) it is often said:

    – you can take a scientist with you to help check
    – but you *must* take stage magicians

    Given the Einstein quote, scientists don’t expect the universe to be trying to fool them, whereas the magicians expect deception. [Of course, some scientists have gotten pretty good at this, but some have been pretty badly fooled. Google: Puthoff Targ Geller ]
