So you're saying the evidence and the criteria
are the same! Some of your post was good; that statement needs tinkering.

Storycrow mwrote:
"So "his belief is as good as mine" is not a valid statement if both of your beliefs are based on available evidence: generally, one theory explains the evidence better than another."

I agree with this. Up 'til now, you have seemed to maintain that your opinion IS as good as mine
based solely on the principle you have just rightly eschewed. Good start!
