A Sure Sign Of Lack Of Evidence

Whenever anyone says something like, “In my own mind and in all good faith I am confident that . . .” the person saying it has no evidence to support his or her claim. In the case of E.C. Coleman, fill in the ellipsis with “the chalice recovered from Bishop Sutton’s tomb is the Holy Grail.” But just about anything else for which there is no evidence will work. Personal opinion and faith are always placeholders for evidence. One should ignore faith claims and critically evaluate the source of opinion.
