No, pud, its said as a statement of opinion, I realize that. But one that is not completely unreasoned or unfounded. It comes from a personal lifetime spent close to science, technology, business, philosophy.
The skepticism that naturally overtakes the scientific mind, and which works well in professional pursuits of research, making business decisions based on facts and rational projections, this skepticism also leaves one's soul rather cold and empty after awhile.
It is said that a man largely becomes the occupation he undertakes. Your career thought patterns and convictions cross into your personal life space of decision making and viewpoints about people. This is why I believe my opinion to be frequently true for people, as I've seen it in myself during my lifetime from time to time.
