Unwarranted zeal: Melvin Moss on modern methods

I’m doing some reading on the study of craniofacial growth, I stumbled across this poignant quote from Melvin Moss, from a seminar on “New Techniques in Processing and Handling Growth Data”:

“This is very beautiful. It is neat, it is modern technology, and it is fast. I am just wondering very seriously about the biological validity of what we are doing with this machine.” (Moyers & Krogman, eds: p. 326)
