"In every chain of reasoning, the evidence of the last conclusion can be no greater than that of the weakest link of the chain, whatever may  be the strength of the rest."

—Thomas Reid: Essays on the Intellectual Powers of Man, 1786

    1. So it was an interesting and thoughtful quote that I think supports many of my doubts about scientific "truths." Also, it describes much of YOUR ranting to a T, you being the weakest link in almost all discussions requiring truth and logic.

      C'mon. Hit me with your best shot.

    2. If I were you, Adullamite, I'd hit with more than one shot.

  2. Incidentally, I have been meaning to ask you why you took me off your personal email list. Have I done something to offend you? I miss them.

  3. Establishing which is the weakest link is the hard part.
