irrefutable proof

8 12 2008

 

I have to admit that I feel a bit sorry for the caller. Judging by his emotional and self-assuring tone of voice I’d wager that his argument was formed as a coping mechanism meant to fill the sudden gap in logical understanding introduced by the highly improbable (and obviously quite emotional) event he experienced. Unfortunately his emotions most likely trumped reason in his decision to assert this belief as a scientific proof, and I don’t think he fully understood what he was getting himself into.
