If they claim to know something I don't know, then all they have to do is to provide the objective, independent evidence. Why should I take their word for it? I take their word that they believe very strongly in whatever it is they are talking about,but if they want it to be true for all (99.99recurring%) true for others, then it is up to them to present their verifiable conclusion.Quote
I reckon there is a third option: Lots of other people know something you don't,
And you know this already!!!
No, I repeat, yet again, that I will immediately change my mind when that l'il 'ol evidence comes along.Quote
but it is impossible to explain it to you since you have already made up your mind it cannot be.
That is a silly and useless pejorative phrase and not worth any consideration, and one I would never even think of, let alone use.Quote
Remember the words "pathological disbeliever"?
