Eran Segev, Australian Skeptics President spoke on ABC Radio National’s Ockham’s Razor program recently.
How do you assess evidence if it’s not your area of expertise? Eran speaks about Skeptics “rules of thumb” to help guide us when assessing evidence. Rules of thumb such as:
Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence
Anecdote and testimonials are not reliable
Experts do know more
Trust the scientific method
Or visit the ABC Ockham’s Razor site.
Worth listening to, Mal.
