Quick Thought of the Day

It's true that extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.

I'd extend that: The ability to make an extraordinary claim is itself a piece of extraordinary evidence. Evidence that you are alive and wondering in a vast and marvelous universe. How under heaven did that happen?

(In memory of Carl Sagan.)

I like that thought, and I doubt I'd ever have thought of it myself! Thanks.
