The original comment about psychics was by Tim on the 16th
if your personal psychic told you that your picnic scheduled for tomorrow will be sunny and bright, but the local meteorologist said there is 90% chance of heavy showers, which do you trust?
Any reasonable person would understand the question is comparing something implausible, something based on an arbitrary choice to believe in something extremely unlikely to be true, versus something based on scientific methods that have been proven and use data that is collected every day and methods that are constantly being refined. And he included a probability for the meteorological prediction. This is part of how you do science.
You changed this from a discussion of which method is better for determining what’s true to one about people accepting authority. You made up a fantasy world where you could find a psychic you trust, in the disguise of using the word “if”. You’ve been nothing but pedantic since then.
The fact that other scientific theories have been shown false or have been refined tells us absolutely nothing, other than that’s how theories work. The failure of Michelson Morley does not inform us at all about the possibility of psychic powers. You understand the concept of what a theory is but you don’t understand how to apply that concept.
Your confusion about “absence of evidence” is a common one, but I don’t how to sort that one out for you, and you’ve grown rather tiresome. Simply, you are really saying “anything is possible”. You’re correct. The question is, are you going to live as if a psychic can predict the weather, or that science can and it will tell you how certain the prediction is. This is more important than weather though, since we are delving into the question of are you going to live as if there is a god behind this universe or not.
