HOW TO PROVE IT, PART 3

proof by obfuscation:
A long plotless sequence of true and/or meaningless
syntactically related statements.

proof by wishful citation:
The author cites the negation, converse, or generalization of
a theorem from the literature to support his claims.

proof by funding:
How could three different government agencies be wrong?

proof by eminent authority:
I saw Karp in the elevator and he said it was probably NP-
complete.

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.
-- Thomas L. Creed, "The Skeptical Inquirer," Summer 1987
