Are your selective in what possibilities you will believe in? Do only support speculative evidence that supports your personnel beliefs? sure seems
Of course I am selective about what possibilities I believe in - why wouldn't I be?? If I believed in evvery possibility I'd be a chemmie!!
You can't thnik of any other reason or method that I might use to select which posibilities to believe in other than personal belief? That's a bit
so I'll tell you some of the criteria, and maybe you will find them useful for sorting out things yourself...or not..up to you:
1/ Evidence of absence - if somethign is possible and should be leaving evidence, but ther is no evidence, then that is called
evidence of absence
. I have little trouble in thinking that something doesnt' exist
where there is a strong case for this. Chemtrails are a good case.
2/ Vanishingly small probability - sure it is POSSIBLE that something exists, or we can imagine it, but the chances that it ACTUALLY does exist seem
so small as to be effectively zero. Examples include a teapot orbiting the sun in the Oort cloud, the Starship Enterprise having time traveled back
to earth recently to pick up a couple of whales, and aliens visiting earth.
I hope that helps clarify things for you.
