HOW TO PROVE IT, PART 6

proof by picture:
A more convincing form of proof by example. Combines well
with proof by omission.

proof by vehement assertion:
It is useful to have some kind of authority relation to the
audience.

proof by ghost reference:
Nothing even remotely resembling the cited theorem appears in
the reference given.

The late rebellion in Massachusetts has given more alarm than I think it
should have done. Calculate that one rebellion in 13 states in the course
of 11 years, is but one for each state in a century and a half. No country
should be so long without one.
-- Thomas Jefferson in letter to James Madison, 20 December 1787

While it cannot be proved retrospectively that any experience of possession,
conversion, revelation, or divine ecstasy was merely an epileptic discharge,
we must ask how one differentiates "real transcendence" from neuropathies
that produce the same extreme realness, profundity, ineffability, and sense
of cosmic unity. When accounts of sudden religious conversions in TLEs
[temporal-lobe epileptics] are laid alongside the epiphanous revelations of
the religious tradition, the parallels are striking. The same is true of the
recent spate of alleged UFO abductees. Parsimony alone argues against invoking
spirits, demons, or extraterrestrials when natural causes will suffice.
-- Barry L. Beyerstein, "Neuropathology and the Legacy of Spiritual
Possession", The Skeptical Inquirer, Vol. XII, No. 3, pg. 255
