Sherlock Holmes on Climategate

In "A Scandal in Bohemia,"  Sherlock Holmes states "It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data.  Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts."

I don't think anyone else can say any more than that.

Edit:  I just saw the new Sherlock Holmes Movie, and they totally used this line!  I works in so many situations...
