Extraordinary claims demand extraordinary proof. There are many examples of
outsiders who eventually overthrew entrenched scientific orthodoxies, but
they prevailed with irrefutable data. More often, egregious findings that
contradict well-established research turn out to be artifacts. I have
argued that accepting psychic powers, reincarnation, "cosmic consciousness,"
and the like, would entail fundamental revisions of the foundations of
neuroscience. Before abandoning materialist theories of mind that have paid
handsome dividends, we should insist on better evidence for psi phenomena
than presently exists, especially when neurology and psychology themselves
offer more plausible alternatives.
-- Barry L. Beyerstein, "The Brain and Consciousness: Implications for
Psi Phenomena", The Skeptical Inquirer, Vol. XII No. 2, ppg. 163-171

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.
