"Despite its suffix, skepticism is not an "ism" in the sense of a belief
or dogma. It is simply an approach to the problem of telling what is
counterfeit and what is genuine. And a recognition of how costly it may
be to fail to do so. To be a skeptic is to cultivate "street smarts" in
the battle for control of ones own mind, ones own money, ones own
allegiances. To be a skeptic, in short, is to refuse to be a victim.
-- Robert S. DeBear, "An Agenda for Reason, Realism, and Responsibility,"
New York Skeptic (newsletter of the New York Area Skeptics, Inc.), Spring 1988

"Well, you see, its such a transitional creature. Its a piss-poor
reptile and not very much of a bird."
-- Melvin Konner, from "The Tangled Wing", quoting a zoologist who has
studied the archaeopteryx and found it "very much like people"

HOW TO PROVE IT, PART 5

proof by accumulated evidence:
Long and diligent search has not revealed a counterexample.

proof by cosmology:
The negation of the proposition is unimaginable or
meaningless. Popular for proofs of the existence of God.

proof by mutual reference:
In reference A, Theorem 5 is said to follow from Theorem 3 in
reference B, which is shown to follow from Corollary 6.2 in
reference C, which is an easy consequence of Theorem 5 in
reference A.

proof by metaproof:
A method is given to construct the desired proof. The
correctness of the method is proved by any of these
techniques.
