RESEARCH METHODOLOGY -2
Our research is strongly interdisciplinary
Interdisciplinary research has the further advantage of reducing major misinterpretation of the data; for each field supplies an independent line of evidence, and all the strands must work collectively towards a consistent model. Such buttressing of conclusions is especially important in origins research, because so many of the questions are emotionally laden. Consider the intensity of the debate over human origins, for example, where philosophical, religious, and ethical implications may easily influence a person's objectivity in handling evidence.
Phenomenon-based interdisciplinary research requires team members to have a good understanding of fields outside their own specialisation; and so several of our workers have intentionally trained in more than one field. Furthermore, in pursuit of objectivity, we actively seek participation by those of a diversity of philosophical persuasions.< Research Methodology (part 1) Research Methodology (part 3) >
