Who you deem credible

Postby Angel » Fri Sep 23, 2016 3:13 pm

Is there a list of who skeptics deem
credible?
To be or not to be?
To believe or
Not to believe?
To be live or
Not to be live?
To exist or
Not to exist?
What was the question?
Hahahahaha:-p

for credibility on here.
Who do skeptics deem credible and why?
Thanx :-)

There might be such a list, but I'm skeptical.
I've come up with a set of rules that describe our reactions to technologies:
Spoiler:
1. Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.
2. Anything that's invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.
3. Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things.
- Douglas Adams

anyone who doesn't believe in God or who ridicules people who have experienced obe's, near death experiences, ufos, or aliens is credible to them...
Science Fundamentalism...is exactly what happens when there’s a significant, perceived ideological threat to one’s traditions and identity.

Evidence can be credible. People not so much.

There are people with a body of work behind them that has a solid track record. I usually give them the benefit of the doubt, pending verification. But even Nobel laureates can be wrong - look up Linus Pauling.

Did you think credibility was a freebee? Credibility is earned, sometimes painfully.

I've been referred to* on this forum as tremendously more than credible, believe me. No one is more credible than me, trust me. I tell you. I'm so much more than credible that everybody says I'm incredible, if you want to know the truth.
