I'm reminded of Pierre-Simon Laplace's statement that "The weight of evidence for an extraordinary claim must be proportioned to its strangeness," which the late Professor Marcello Truzzi famously rephrased as "An extraordinary claim requires extraordinary proof," and the even later Dr. Carl Sagan popularized as "Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence."

Zach's protagonist here certainly ascribes to that tenet, but regards as "extraordinary" only those claims which disagree with his own preconceptions. Who among us can't claim that flaw?

I wouldn't know, since I've never experienced it.

I never liked that phrase for this exact reason.

That pig is terribly misinformed in his opinions.

I have no shame. Remember, I wear socks with my sandals.

I think this should be the only thread where people can shamelessly self-promote
