The inability to benefit from feedback appears to be the primary cause of
pseudoscience. Pseudoscientists retain their beliefs and ignore or distort
contradictory evidence rather than modify or reject a flawed theory. Because
of their strong biases, they seem to lack the self-correcting mechanisms
scientists must employ in their work.

HOW TO PROVE IT, PART 4

proof by personal communication:
Eight-dimensional colored cycle stripping is NP-complete
[Karp, personal communication].

proof by reduction to the wrong problem:
To see that infinite-dimensional colored cycle stripping is
decidable, we reduce it to the halting problem.

proof by reference to inaccessible literature:
The author cites a simple corollary of a theorem to be found
in a privately circulated memoir of the Slovenian
Philological Society, 1883.

proof by importance:
A large body of useful consequences all follow from the
proposition in question.

Im often asked the question, "Do you think there is extraterrestrial intelli-
gence?" I give the standard arguments -- there are a lot of places out there,
and use the word *billions*, and so on. And then I say it would be astonishing
to me if there werent extraterrestrial intelligence, but of course there is as
yet no compelling evidence for it. And then Im asked, "Yeah, but what do you
really think?" I say, "I just told you what I really think." "Yeah, but
whats your gut feeling?" But I try not to think with my gut. Really, its
okay to reserve judgment until the evidence is in.
