So I’ve had a few ‘conversations’ with people over the last few weeks that makes me realize that most people don’t even understand basic logic principles. Let me help with some basic guidelines:
If you make a claim, the onus is on YOU to provide EVIDENCE (empirical, not the Netflix variety) to support your position.
If someone challenges your claim it is not appropriate to say ‘do your research.’ Google isn’t research and if you are making the claim, the burden of proof is on YOU.
Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.
That which is asserted without evidence can be DISMISSED without evidence.
Always ask the following 3 questions when anyone makes any claim: 1) Compared to what? 2) At what cost? 3) Where is your HARD evidence? (Thanks @sowell.thomas
