cuchulain Posted March 28, 2017 Report Share Posted March 28, 2017 Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. This is something that has been bandied about by others and myself, but I began wondering about it today. I thought I would ask for some perspectives. Do you believe this statement, and if so why. If you don't, why not? My perspective until now has been to accept this statement, but I think in examining my reasoning it is mostly based upon personal bias against Theism in most of it's forms. So I am reevaluating whether this is true. I still tend towards believing it is true. I mean, I could claim I had a peanut butter sandwich for lunch. I doubt many people would require video evidence before believing me. On the other hand, if I claimed I could fly without the aid of machine I am fairly certain I would either be disbelieved immediately or asked for substantial proof(such as demonstrating my newfound ability). Even if I could fly in such a manner, I do not think I would mind terribly if someone didn't believe the claim without evidence that was credible.
