With a significant personal exposure to academics and academia, I can only support your idea that academics are as biased as the rest of us (including me). However, the assumption of academic impartiality implicit in pretty well all of the academic work I have seen still puzzles me. Why is this hidden assumption missed so often? Why do they feel they fall outside their own conclusions with respect to reasoning and bias?
Your thoughts and study are well thought out. The topics and book examples would make a reader incredibly equipped to identify biases in their lives and world. This skill would be good and healthy for everyone. Both the science and religion pages were awesome in identifying bias.
