Helyn Cornille's insight:

Considering the human nature, Tom Gilovitch explains why the theory will not go away very soon. If one wants to believe that the lowering of the neck is a stretching, one will look only for evidences that the theory might be true. "If we find a single piece of evidence, then we are done.

Then, and instead of beneficiating from the progresses of science, the horse will be submitted to our school of thought.
